BeerandBlues2 (9596) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with an average, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grainy, meal, cereal), heavy hops (grassy, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of apricot and white grapefruit. Flavor is heavy malt (grainy, meal, cereal), heavy hops (grassy, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of apricot and white grapefruit. Medium body, low warmth, medium-high carbonation, low creaminess with a dry and biting finish. This beer is rather one dimensional with no real malt flavor to back up the hop flavor; bleh.

hopscotch (9103) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Crystal clear yellow brew with a large, enamel-colored, frothy head. Nice lacing. Big hops in the nose along with peaches, citrus fruits, evergreen notes and coconut oil... that's a first! The flavor is fairly thin, but with a modest, lightly citrusy and lightly bitter hop presence. Light-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, bitter finish.

daknole (9052) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle. Gold pour. white head. Skunky hops, weak malt aroma follwed by a damn nasty bitter finish. Overrated? Yes. Nasty? You bet. Damn.

pivnizub (8793) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle: Golden to deep golden, hazy, mid-sized frothy and stable off-white head; moderate to solid dryish fruity and aromatic hoppy nose with a piney touch; solid bitter dry flavour, medium bodied; hops sticking to the palate in the dry hoppy-fruity finish. An american goody....

Sammy (8552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2009
A good American style pale. Golden body,white foam, with pleasant citrus aroma. Taste is some citrus and a good bitterness, good malting for drinkability. Bit above average mouthfeel. A hint of acid in the aftertaste, but that is tolerable.Nice balance

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2011
(bottle, 65.5cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a fluffy and slightly off-white foamy head. Distinctively fruity (citrus, grapefruit) hoppy aroma with piney notes and a mildly malty background. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel. Mildly malty taste with a good dash of fruity, piney and slightly floral hops; dry and bitter hoppy finish with a tinge of buttery malt. Pleasantly hoppy Ale. 27.II.11

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2008
Tap at d.b.a. Hazy golden-orange beer. Aroma is lightly lemony with a soft orange and bready sweet malt aroma. A little bit honeyish with a soft earthiness. Lightly floral yeastiness as well. A dusty and fairly carbonic character that is a bit distracting, but overall it’s not a bad beer.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2008
12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours a hazy peach color with moderate head and excellent lacing. Straightforward floral hop aroma. Very bitter hop taste with a sweet brown-sugar like finish. Medium bodied. Overall a little one-dimensional, but still pleasant.
