Tmoney99 (10680) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate resin hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Sammy (8663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Worded as an IPA, but thankfully listed as an APA. The hoppiness is more felt in the finish, and lends it orange citrus flavour. Good drinkability, easy drinking so that I could finish the bomber. Bottle from recent trip to Champane Cellars.

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of .moderate-heavy citrus/orange, light-moderate dusty yeast, bread, and some light lemon-like cleaner notes, It pours a golden-orange with a very large yellow-tinged off-white head. There’s some soapy clumps of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with some sweet citrus/orange, light fruit, and bread. The finish has light-moderate yeast, light grain, and floral notes. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, it’s decent, but it not hoppy enough and too yeasty for a Pale Ale.
