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.

DrSilverworm (5016) - 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.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pint on tap at The Olde Depot. The aroma is very pleasant with sweet, floral, and citrus notes. Fairly quaffable. Mildly hazy golden/orange body with a medium egg white head and good lacing. This beer starts with a nice, moderate, malt sweetness. Becomes rather citrus-like after, with heavy emphasis on orange and grapefruit hop flavors. Finishes quite bitter. A nice American Pale Ale...

Terminus (3146) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Tap at Rustico in Alexandria, VA August 2013 Pours lite orange hue with a small fizzy white head and no lacing. looks pretty boring. Nose is herbal lite grapefruit and lots of oxidization. Flvaors are pretty oxidized as well with lingering woody and grapefruit notes. body is crisp and lite and could be a good session beer if fresh. This sample is not in very good shape. But i rate them as they come.
