Draft. Pours an orangish gold with an off-white head. Nose is mostly hops with strong pine and floral notes. Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. More floral notes on the palate, a decent malt backbone, and some resin thrown in too. Medium finish with some lingering bitterness on the tongue. It’s leaves great lacing on the glass. Definitely a good pale ale and one of their top beers, but it is more of an APA than an IPA in my mind.

Bottle sampled on 5/22/08: Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale malts and some mild citrusy hops. Body starts semi-sweet and slightly grapefruity hoppy with a crisp, drier bittersweet finish. Needs more fullness and hop aroma.

JaBier (5300) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2009
12oz bottle. Clear gold/copper pour with a big white head. A whole lot of grainy malt with some hops. Malty flavor with a bit hop and very thin. I had this before and loved it, so this is definitely an old bottle. The beer thinned out in addition to the hops diminishing. Will re-rate if I can ever get my hands on this again. It really is a good beer when fresh.

Big thanks to Bboyshatter for sending this one along in the under 100 BIF Bottle poured into a pint glass produced a finger worth of white hear that settled to a thick lace. The body of the brew was a clear copper in color. The aroma coming from this is quite hoppy for a pale. I really like it in all its piney, citric goodness. The flavor is the same as the nose hop forward grassy and bitter. It had a light feel in my mouth and crisp on my tongue. Truly an easy drinking APA sessionable and refreshing I would drink it again

decaturstevo (5393) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Hazy orange with a creamy off white head and lace. A light bready aroma with very light hops and medium malt. Medium malt followed by a light medium bitter. A medium bodied beer that is not bad at all.

Not a big pale ale person, but trying to expand my horizons here. This was out of a bottle courtesy of some friends. Light, fizzy body, amber color. I felt it had a bit of an earthy aroma. Hoppy, with a more astringent finish. Seems typical to me of a pale ale variety of beer. Not bad.

Wow. Light bodied but packs a hell of a hop punch on the finish for what it is. On the nose you get some hops, but they really come through as the beer leaves your mouth. Get this one highly recommended. They say pale ale but it is classed as an IPA on ratebeer and I can see that to be honest.
