daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Orange pour in a sample glass at Fate. This is an overly malty, somewhat off putting beer. Green coffee, not enough hops. Weird.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
Pale golden pour. The nose is fruity and citrusy with grapefruit and a touch of soft spice. Dry, but perceptible malt flavour rounding out the back of the palate. A little bit of moderate clean bitterness and some lingering spice. Crackery and delicious. A great APA

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Bang on pale ale enjoyed at the Tap Room. Light golden colour, lacey,easy smooth mouthfeel. Citrus orange bitterness. Good drinkability. No astringency at well. This apparently will become their main pale ale. Above average bodied and medium hoppiness.

GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Tap at Meridian Pint. Pours a full hazed orange. Creamy foam. Thick swabs of poofy lace. Nose is fresh orange juice and zesty pink grapefruit. Taste is sharp, spicy, oily, quite bitter. Feels heavier than APA. More IPA. Very nice.

Dogbrick (7243) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
On tap at Beer Republic during SF Beer Week, what a week! Pours copper with gold edges and near white head. The aroma has modest levels of spicy hops, a touch of citrus and then some floral at the aromatic periphery. The taste is nice and crisp and fresh with spicy hops and then it gets sort of floral with bittering floral hops and then a light amount of floral flavor hops. Yummers.
