Bomber from Dchmela! Thanks man! This is a tasty beer! Nice hazy golden pour with one of the best fluffy heads that I have seen in a long time. Lots of crisp hoppy flavor and very refeshing! Clean palet and well balanced.

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.

cloudy yellow body, served a touch warm to my great pleasure on draught at the brewpub. aroma is of subtle fruit esters that grow stronger throughout the pint: lime/lemon and general ’five alive’ notes. flavor is of cascade esters indlucing some odd weizen like characteristcs of peppery banana. enjoyed another sample of two failed pours (due to keg, not the barkeep) that had sat out for nearly two hours. to this i added 7-8 crystal hop pellets. before long it became ’hop soup’ and undrinkable, but before it did the already present citrus notes became stronger but still fleeting in their subtle way, with an almost british classiness.

The aroma does not make one think that anything special is coming. It’s got grassy hops and a dull clean maltiness. The appearance is deep gold with a small head. The taste makes up for a lack of aroma with a big sweet malt punch to balance a robust hop quality. The palate is thick and smooth. Overall a very good beer!

22oz bottle. Orange color. Aroma of biscuit, malts. Herbal hops, butter toffee. Smooth soft malt, bitter hops. Perfectly balanced.

decaturstevo (5024) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Orange pour with creamy off white head and lace. Bready aroma with resiny hops. (cascade I think). Resiny hops on the front with caramel malt and a decent resiny bitter finish a finishing perfuminess. Medium bodied and a tad fizzy.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2012
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.
