malvrich (250) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Can dated best by 11/23/16 into an IPA glass. A: Poured roughly to a huge off-white foamy head. Pale, slightly hazy burnt orange body. Great head retention and prolific lace. S: Light scent overall with orange/grapfruit notes out front. Faint caramel. T: Bitter and roasty at first. Some orange and zest then join but hops seem muted. M: Dry finish with soft carbonation. Medium body is pretty drinkable. O: Average to good overall. Certainly nothing to complain about and well worth a try.

Newport News, Va - Total Wine & More - 12 oz can, Dark orange pour has a slight haze to it with a silky snow white head that sticks around a while. Light spruce to the aroma, a touch of nuttiness. Solid flavor, light citrus bitterness, some, light pineapple fruitiness, a touch of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Enjoyable,

12oz bottle. Never a good sign when brewers aren’t even aware of their own culture...How can you name a beer Full Nelson that seemingly has so Nelson Sauvin hops in it? Has that earthy caramel and NW hops tone going on, tastes like a beer from 15 years ago. I would have been more disappointed had a I picked up a sixpack instead of a single. Drab and unenticing. Some earthy onion/garlic hops tones.

OnTheTrail (353) - Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Pours dark gold pale, huge white head. Aroma is fruity, juicy, citrusy. Surpising balance of fruity hops and soft malt, with a bit of bitter kick on the finish.

Minnbrewer (35) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Great flavor...I love the choice of hops. Could be just a little more crisp. A little heavy on caramel (I prefer the use of a malty rather than sweet grain...like Vienna). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kokkenrolv (281) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2015
Can. Aroma is hoppy, apricot, some peach, hints of passion fruit and orange, nice tones of bready malt, citrus tones, pine. Deep golden, hazy, nice off white head. Medium sweetness, medium bitterness, taste is citrus, orange, apricot, hints of wood and pine, sun ripe fruits. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium long aftertaste with fading bitterness. Nice and well brewed pale ale.
