Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of big pine and tropical fruit notes as well as some sweetness from the malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Uber Tap Room in Milwaukee. I’m glad I decided to try this one, because I really enjoyed it. Very well balanced with plenty of citrus hops to my liking. I’d have it again if the opportunity presented itself.

On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Deep orange-kissed gold. Smells like a pine forest! So fresh and fragrant, heaps of pine, light resin, long bitterness. One of the best onthe list, and one of two beers I ordered a full pint following the taster. Superb.

Bomber. Poured lighter orange with a tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up orange meat and biscuity malts topped by spicy pine and black peppery notes.. well-balanced. The flavor found citrus meat and biscuity malts again at the core, with grapefruit, black pepper, and pine bitterness around.. warm finish with tasty sweet malts and lots of spicy bitterness. Medium-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate. spicy and engaging.. really good stuff!

22oz bomber shared by Brian. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Oily, patchy off-white head. Really nice cool, crisp hop aroma. Buttery meets cool and crisp. Unique, a little sugary. OK.

Shared bomber with SHERM1016...thanks! Pours a rich golden orange with moderate head. Nose is a citrus blend...very nice. This seems pretty hoppy for a pale ale...is this an IPA in hiding (a less crowded field?)...whatever it is, this is a good tasty beer.

22oz bottle from Downer Wine and Spirits, split with dwm1034. Pours a crystal clear, amber color with an off white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, some pine, some citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, a nice punch of bitter pine hops, some citrus, with a clean, bitter finish. Pale ale versus IPA: I say this is an IPA, and a good one at that.

Draft. A freaking amazing "pale ale" IPA. Just rocks yo uwith hops, mainly simcoe in the aroma, and has a delicate malt backing. Way too easy to drink for the abv.

On tap at the Sugar Maple. Amber with white head and tons of lacing. Pleasant piney citrus with fruity caramel malt undertones. Flavor is fresh citrus hop bitterness and mild caramel with a nice citrus zest and pine finish. Moderately dry on the finish. Nice.

I had this beer out of the bottle. Nice cloudy golden color, very bitter citrusy hops, not much body or malty flavor.
