On tap at Oblivion Taproom in Orlando. Pours a golden copper with an off white head and aroma of hops and grapefruit. Taste is hoppy, lots of grapefruit, citrus, and resin with a hoppy, bitter finish. Goes down easy and nice tasty bitter APA

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2013
On tap at Oblivion Taproom. This was a hop-forward pale ale that had lots of citrus characteristics, but the flavors were short-lived. Not really worth the 6% abv overall.

OmegaX (1156) - Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Not bad. On tap at oblivion. Nose is light citrus hops, very grainy and malty. Flavor is sweet malts, not much hop. Not very balanced but still drinkable.

sloth (2400) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Thin white head with fair retention and a thin, lasting, stringy lacing.Light gold colored. Quiet nose of pine and citrus with some grainy malt notes. Lightly medium in body with a soft carbonation and a little bit oily. Lightly sweet pale malts are a bit bready and backed by a light citrusy punch and some light fruit notes. Fairly dry finish with a tame bitterness. Draft/growlered from statelineliquors.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Sample at Lucky’s in Dayton. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Short strings of lace on the glass. Aroma of hops and bready malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character with toasted malt behind it. The finish is floral with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
11oz glass on tap from Keystone in Clifton. Mostly clear orange yellow color. Good thicker off-white head. Respectable thicker splotches and ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice citrus hop note, but it’s not over the top, balanced well by lighter caramel malt, some good clean biscuity malt, with a lightly peppery finish. Nice moderate bitter taste, little sweet. Good, balanced pale ale.

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Clear light orange pour with a sticky white head. Meld of citrus and pine resin. A touch of earthy tones but more caramel malt than that. Pretty solid.

Concealer (649) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Tap. Golden yellow with a clean white head. Smells of lemongrass, citrus, light passion fruit, and pine. Taste is similar but the grass is more noticable.
