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.

It's pretty good, it has a nice grapefruit-like hopiness, but the aftertaste or palate is pretty bland. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"The hops in this seem faded a bit. As with a lot of organic brews, these guys seem to have consistency issues. This is an average pale overall, but can be better or worse depending on several factors. I like the hippiness when fresh, but it becomes very dull with a little shelf time on it."

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 (5960) - 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 (2986) - 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.

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.

MattShizzle (549) - 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.

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

5000 (6300) - 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.
