COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber, American-style pale ale is brewed with five different barley malts, generous additions of Cascade and Centennial hops, and a unique strain of yeast. The British, German and American malts used provide a complex blend of caramel, biscuit, and nutty malt flavors. The hops provide a gentle, pleasant bitterness with an intense floral and citrus aroma. It is dry-hopped, unfiltered and unpasteurized. We hope you enjoy this fresh, local beer. Brew details: OG 1.064. FG 1.016. ABV 6.3%. SRM 9.6. IBU 34.7.

Thanks to someone in a BIF. Pours dark reddish gold with a moderate white top. Aroma is caramel malts and pine and earthy hop. Taste is a little subdued on the hop flavouring but it still very well balanced with a solid malt base of caramel and biscuit and then pine hops that add great body.

Medium copper pour with a small head. Aromas of toasted malts, light pine, and a touch of caramel. Toast and light citrus throughout the swallow. Eh not much standing out here. Decent

Kita (861) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 19, 2013
On tap @ The House of Brews, NY. Clear amber color with medium sized creamy white head, nice lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, caramel and biscuit malt. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malty backbone, which is quickly predominted by fresh fruity acidity, while finish is very pleasant and gently bitter. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Extremely drinkable beer with lots of citrus...

Tap at Madison Square Garden for a Rangers game (NHL). Poured a nice brown/amber color with an off white head. Looks like an amber ale. Nose surprisingly has bitter grapefruit and caramel/biscuit malts. Very appealing. Taste is super easy drinking - typical grapefruit based pale. This is actually pretty good. Great beer for the ice hockey!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Rich copper coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head that fades fast and leaves a relatively nice lace. Aroma of biscuits, earth, nutty malt and quite a bit of herbal and grassy hop notes - nice and balanced. Medium-bodied; Assertive grapefruit hops up front with a deep malt backbone that is nuanced with some yeast and caster sugar. Aftertaste shows a lot of biscuits, some english or german hop subtleties and a bit of light sugars from toffee that permeate through the end. Overall, a good and relatively smooth pale - showing some signs of English, but more of an APA. Good, but not great nor excellent - still a good beer on a train or somewhere that cans are good for. I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in New York, New York (Bowery location) on 01-November-2013 for US$2.99 sampled at home in Washington in honour of the tragic train derailment in the Bronx earlier today on 01-December-2013.

16oz tallboy can given to me by Ed5388, since there is no more OTD I will refrain in describing where Ed had the can "hidden" during it’s transport over.After a thorough wwashing of the can it poured into my Cigar City snifter a mostly clear sunburnt orange with a small to average sized quicker fading foamy light beige head. Aroma is definitely malt driven with lots of grains and crusts, caramel sweetness, light chocolate and just a tiny touch of citrus rind. Medium bodied with tight bubbly carbonation and a lingering flavor tingle that seems more carbonation driven than hop driven. Flavor starts off nice with noticeable caramel sweetness but that fades and dry bread crusts and citrus rind take over. I guess this is ok but nothing special like their Black Pale Ale.

16oz can via 4 pack from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a finger and a half of fluffy off white head. Aroma of old citrus, black pepper, and lots of caramel malt. Taste mimics the nose. Very malty, lots of caramel, old citrus, a little earthy, and a peppery finish.

boxofrane (1872) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Draft at the keg room. Pours Amber with a large white head. The aroma has a bit of a rye note, florals, very light pine. The taste is light bitter, a toasted maltiness, a bit more like an amber ale.

Clear deep ruby color, good beige head. Bready, pale malty, citrusy hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Citrus hoppy, resiny and nice bitterness backed with some sweetish pale maltyness.
