It must be the crystal hops, I’m not sure, but there is some flavor that I really love in this beer.

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer has a little haze and is honey gold and orange. A pleasant tropical fruit nose. That fruit is also prominently tasted. Actually it is just about the only thing I taste. Malts are thin. A little bitterness and the feel has some fizz to it. I wish this beer had more malts but the fruit is tasty.

crossovert (7608) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2014
355ml bottle. Light amber pour, soapy head. Smell is lemon lime and a hint of pina colada and bubblegum. Flavor is fruity, bubblegum, some fresh cut herbs, sweetness, seems overly yeasty which shouldn’t be the case in a pale ale.

fiercepanda (588) - Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2014
A reddish golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is soapy, musty, and citrus. The flavor is herbal and lemon.

mcberko (6726) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at Bridgeport, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry biscuit malt, some citrus zest and a little pine. Flavour is along the same lines, with bitter piney hops and some dry crackery malt. Decently balanced, but ultimately pretty boring. Not so good.

Nothing bad, nothing great, lots of average. Light and citrusy but really that’s about it.

RSRIZZO (1855) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 42°. Color is a light gold with a slight haze. Carbonation is good with a small rocky head that seems to tighten up as you drink it. Aroma is a bold citrus scent that leans to orange. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel giving a mild crisp bite on the end. Flavor comes in on mild sweet malt followed by a bold citrus giving only a hint of the orange you get in the aroma and a bit of grapefruit. After taste is more citrus and a bitterness biting at the sides of your tongue. Overall its a nice drinkable brew but leans on the hop side a bit much.

pinkzambia (1513) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold with a white head and no lacing. Aroma of celery, hops and a little tanginess. Semi-hoppy flavor with a musty aftertaste. It’s not amazing, but it’s not as bad as the rating % above. It was refreshing on a hot summer day.

Hell of a head on this, stays forever. Had this at a ball game. Was decent for hot weather but I won’t need this beer again

12 oz bottle. Gold with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of perfume, light pine, grass, and herbs. Taste is of grass, light lemon, herbal notes.
