hainer (19) - New York, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Very well executed color (copper amber), lacing, aroma and texture. Pours with an exemplary head and immediately reeks of fine, quality ingredients. The taste starts citrusy with hints of caramel, but the hops soon take over, in a welcome, lasting rush of nicely calibrated bitterness. A very fine pale ale whose quality far exceeds the shoddy design and print job of the can from which it was poured.

Cunningham (6051) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2015
Hazed deep golden color with a fine thick white head. Nice lacing. Some toffee, dried fruits and hoppy aroma. Medium (+) body and a smooth soft carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Oily texture. Lasting finish. Nice balanced flavor that keeps itself within the harse limits. Could easily falled over to the wrong side. Dried fruits, apricot, grapefruit and some pine. Solid hopjuice.

(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") Can. A- Grapefruit, tangerines, juicy, subtle caramel, subtle hops. A- Orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Juicy, citrus, caramel, bitter, malty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- At first smell, I got everything I expected and more. Lots of juicy tropical citrus fruits. Then on the palate I got more of the same with a decent malt backbone. Balanced out well. Enjoyed this quite a bit.

mike_77 (4317) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2015
Hazy, dark orange colour. Well balanced Pale Ale with enough malt presence to stand up to a fairly strong, bitter hop flavour.

On tap @ Blue Mountain / Afton VA --- Clear light mahogany amber, ivory head, sheets of lace. Taste is a bit of malt that is quickly passed by medium hops. The hops maintain control through the finish. A decent light entry APA, especially for hopheads.

Serves in a can. Nice taste. Great with a burger. Smooth taste with a pleasant aftertaste. Subtle and does not affect the taste of the fruit. Safe social beer for mixed company.
