Draft pour. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Aroma has pine and white cake. The taste is sweet and a bit papery with some herbal hop qualities. Medium bodied and mild bitterness. Probably an older keg, but the bartender seemed to think it was as good as it ever was. An alright beer, but probably better fresher.

Poured from 12oz bottle at Edison. White head with a dark cloudy orange color. Ripe peach and grapefruit dank aroma. Sweet and hoppy tropical fruit taste. Not bad but I thought it was over rated

Can. Nose is doughy and spicy, pine with light citrus. Amber pour, maybe a little orange, with a large and tight beige head. Dull/flattish medium body, even watery at times, off-dry with mostly caramel and wood, a little toffee and earth, not much citrus. Still, alive and fresh and clean, an easy one to down without much thought.

Drank from a frosty pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice orange amber and very little carbonation. It has good flavor but not a fan of the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a slightly hazy orange with a somewhat pervasive red here and there. One finger white foamy head dissipated within about a minute.
The smell was slightly earthy sweet with a slight pine to citrus back up here and there.
The taste was mainly sweet but allowed a decent bitterness to balance.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but was fairly subdued.
Overall, I say this was a good American Pale ale worthy of having again.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 10/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, caramel, toasted bread, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange zest, caramel, toasted bread, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, floral, grass, caramel, toasted bread, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, balance, and robustness of juicy citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of juicy citrus hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
