MattShizzle (539) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Medium golden - slightly cloudy. Aroma is mostly clean with a bit of hops and malt. Pretty good - hoppy (though not the best tasting hops) with some malt.

kidmartinek (3551) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Looks good. Hazy orange/gold/amber blend with a frothy big foamy head and sediment in full suspension. Smells like organic malt. Very smooth on the palate. Flavor is mostly bitter with some organic malt backend and a cool finish.

PorterPounder (5367) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Whole Foods Market - poured at the Irish Food and Beer Fest. Light golden sparkling pour, light off-white head. Aroma of light spruce, a touch of grassiness. Flavor is mellow with some pear-like fruitiness, some sour, tangy notes, a bit of hioney sweetness, Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it. "Organicness" is evident. Decent.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2013
It poured a hazy golden brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of grapefruit and toffee with some sweet maltiness. The taste was a zesty citrus hop burst, ending in a soundly bitter finish. It was a little thin in the mouthfeel.

crazyvin (1909) - New York, USA - SEP 12, 2013
A medium amber body with a white head that had good retention and some lace. Aroma had some nice caramel malts, some grapefruit hops and a slightly off putting citronella note. Flavor seemed to be too sweet. The hops were bitter enough to keep it from being cloying. Finish was moderately dry.

Bottle from a friend. Gold pour cream head. Nose is malts, caramel, no hops, and bitter. Easy palate, heavy caramel, malts, dough, not so good.

Bottle pours an orangeish color with an off white head. Scent is sweet fruits, hops, and grass. Taste is hops and spices. Solid

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish amber, fairly clear, moderate foamy sand colored head, lacing that seems fairly sticky leaving a few rings.   Nose is quite earthy, a little soily.   Hops are on the down low.   Otherwise malty and mealy.   Subtle hop and citrusy malts on the tongue.   Remains earthy and soily, but not as much as I expected for an organic ale.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Does seem to quiet down towards the end.   Not too hoppy overall.   As expected, a bit of earthy and soily malts, but not as strong as I would have thought.   Very subdued for a Pale, given that its brewed on the west coast.   Better than expected, but still a little boring.

reebtogi (4098) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
355mL bottle poured a light amber-orange color with small white head which left little lacing behind. Aroma of caramel and hops. Taste is predominantly hop bitterness with some malty sweetness in the background. Medium body and moderate carbonation provide an adequate mouthfeel. A decent pale ale, but there are much better out there to sample.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. It pours a light amber orange with a decent frothy off white head. The nose is a pleasing bit of caramel, a touch of honey, light fruitiness (apple and pear), and a bit of hops. The flavor has a bit of wet dog and cardboard with the caramel, leafy but slightly stale hops, and slight fruitiness. Chewy malts up front with a fairly dry finish. Medium bodied. Okay, but I can do without those off notes in the front of the flavor profile.
