cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2012
22 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a clear golden color with a 2/3 finger thick off white head. Light spotty. Aroma is pretty sad. Hardly any scent of anything. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt and very light hops. Finish is uneventful. No obvious flaws, but needs more of everything. Worth a try. Thanks Jason.

Via trade with Dchmela, a bonus extra local beer! The aroma is citrus, bread, caramel. The appearance is translucent amber, white head. The flavor is citrus, vegetable, caramel, metal. The finish is resin and metal. Medium in body. Not bad, not great.

jbruner (2362) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with thin cap of lacy white head. Aroma is pale malt, fresh bready grain, and slight citrus hops. Taste is pretty much all the bready grain, with a hint of bitter. Nice when it’s fresh.

unclemike (2280) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Pours golden with a creamy white head. Nose is of citric, lime hops and some toasted malts. Slightly drying, toasted malts medium-to-low bitterness, round mouthfeel. A bit of lemon fruitiness in the flavor as well. Drinkable slightly off-the-wall APA.

Cloudy dark orange color bit the brewer said it is usually clear and a bit lighter. Aroma is light, caramel malt and light hops. Flavor is smooth sweet and hop balanced, crisp finish.

Appearance: massive head resembles a freshly risen and baked loaf of homemade bread. Under this massive bready cover lies freshly picked oranges – brilliant yet translucent at the same time. Swirls with clumpy blotchy patches of bready fluff.
Nose: on the mild unassuming side. Deeper sniffing uncovers soft baked breads with a touch of sweetness, like Hawaiian rolls. Apricot and mandarin weave in and out. Orange cream in the back along with a touch of banana cream. Freshly squeezed generic tropical esters. Chewy.
Palate: bready and sweet. In a good way, I chew as much as I quaff my way through this dense pale ale. Flowers, crisp baled straw and dried grass in the back refreshes and makes way for more. Grapefruit and orange pith lead the finish. Fresh pulpy sweet mandarin, mango, guava, and papaya – flesh first then it’s all about the skin. Sweet bread laced with fresh orange essence holds everything together.
Final Thoughts: a beach, boat, river, hammock worthy Pale Ale. Located close to the beach, it’s no surprise that I have visions of my toes wriggling in warm sand soft as silk, a slight breeze keeping the temperature just right. A few years ago Florida was a beer wasteland, but no more thanks to such entrepreneurs as Cocoa Beach Brewing.

a surprisingly decent pale ale, better than i thought it was going to be, given that i got it at a Trader Joe’s.

I saw a few of these in the store the other day and immediately thought, support the locals! This pours a dirty gold color with a nice frothy white head that leaves ample lacing. The aroma is of caramel, bread, cereal grain, and light floral notes. This goes down nicely with sweet caramel, mineral, grass, and citrus flavors. Slightly dry and hoppy finish. There’s a little bit of bitterness here but not a ton. Medium-bodied and a bit toasty. This is solid stuff. I look forward to trying others from this brewery.

Not a bad brew at all. Nose is sweet citrus fruits (orange) and light caramel malt. Not much else going on there. Average. Very sweet nose though. Pour is nice with a golden/bronze color and a big foamy head and solid lacing. Taste is grassy hops with some grapefruit and pine tree on the finish. Malt and sweetness hit you upfront with some lingering straw notes. Pretty nice actually.
