Old bottle. Nice golden orange color with not much head. Plenty of carbonation though. Aroma is pleasant cascade hops, onion, and caramel flavors. Malt profile is nice. Hop taste isn’t real complex, and body is a bit thin. Aftertaste is sharp and full of hops. A nice, easy drinking pale, I just wish mine was fresh.

Press a clear golden orange from the bottle with thin white head and light lacing. Aroma of bready grains, slight odd soapiness. Taste is bready grain and slight citrus hops on the back. Meh, kind of thin and mediocre.

Bomber poured into glass. This is just a straight forward Pale Ale. Hoppy up front with a nice balance between the malts and hops. Not a life changing beer but a solid choice.

DocJitsu (1684) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a beautiful golden copper with a quickly attenuating half an inch off white head. Light, but sticky lacing around the glass’ edge. Wonderful bouquet of bold yet soft pine offset with a perfume of sweet grapefruit and mown grass. Thin, underwhelming mouthfeel. Grain-centered taste that is coated with a light hop dusting. A finish that disappears a little too quickly. Very clean and quite drinkable. Just not a great example of the style.

Pours nicely with a big fluffy head. Aroma is very heavy. Taste has a very light malt and a small trace of citrusy hops overall it smells better than it tastes. I would drink then if offered but probably wouldn't purchase again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a light golden with fluffy white head. More biscuit malts than usual for a pale and citrus is only coming through mildly. taste with a slight bitterness. Nothing special but could happily have a few!

22oz bomber poured out a yellow color with a white head...had a very nice pleasant aroma of citrus hops and mild malt background. some lacing on the side of the glass. dont remember when i got this so it might be a little old but the flavor was smooth hops and malt. even my buddy who is not a hop head liked this one. the citrus hops dont bite you it just rolled off the tongue. i thought it might be to old. fresh might be better dont know because i dont remember where i bought it. but it is very drinkable and very good.

Backlog rating 11-30-2008. This beer poured a medium sized off-white fizzy, frothy head with poor retention, fast-rising carbonation, hazy body with some floaties, a fair amount of lacing, and a golden hue. The aroma is citrus hops, some pine, malty, and caramel. The flavor is malty, citrus hops, some pine, and caramel. The mouthfeel is tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer has a nice flavor for the style and it was worth trying.
