Dogbrick (11180) - 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.

Sammy (10891) - 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.

daknole (10840) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.

DocLock (9709) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours turbid orangy straw colored with off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, floral, tropical frui. Tastes hoppy, citric, with notes of tangerine, tastes like juicy Citra hops, and a crisp, explosive hop and citrus finish.

leaparsons (9677) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Golden with a fluffy white foam. Tropical with grapefruit and pine. Peppery with leafy bitterness. Fairly sweet. Toasted grain malts. Grassy. Vegetable bitterness. Solid.

DrSilverworm (9671) - 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.

slowrunner77 (9651) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2014
A solid APA that is a little IPA leaning, but manages a gentle balance that most IPAs do not. Lots of citrus and some pine on the nose. Carmel and bready malt backbone. Lingering bitter finish. 6-packs, too

BVery (9412) - Plymouth, 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.

JoeMcPhee (9268) - 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
