Dogbrick (8322) - 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.

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.

Ibrew2or3 (6998) - 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.

BVery (6626) - 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.

DrSilverworm (6602) - 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 (5986) - 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

Braudog (5841) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. An interesting twist, seemingly wheaty in its base, but a sharp and acidic hoppy beer up front. Quite floral and fruity, but there’s a different little yeasty/gritty thing in the backdrop. (#5722, 9/7/2014)
