OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2013
A - Hazy amber body with a 2 finger head that creates sudsy lacing down the side of the glass. S - Sweet citrus, very floral, mint leaves, mild pale malt. T - Floral and green herbal hops right up front, dried grapefruit peel, hints of lemon, dry pale malt, bitterness starts building through the finish in the form of herbal tea tannins. The finish is dry with a floral aftertaste. M - Medium body, moderate soft carbonation. A nice dry-hopped Pale Ale with plenty of hop flavor. The citrus was alot drier than the nose let on. Lots of floral and herbal goodness, ABV is hidden very well. A solid drinker. Serving type: bottle 07-13-2012

Golden color with a faint haze and a fluffy white head. Bright sharp citrus and tropical fruit hop nose. Fresh orange zest, tangerine, red grapefruit, and some pineapple notes with some caramel sweetness. The finish is all hops. This is a nice, easy drinking hoppy beer.

chinchill (1957) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2013
A: Hazy golden-amber body with an exceptionally attractive and creamy, durable head. S:Smells like a pilsner with a slightly high malt/hops ratio. T - Starts mildly bitter but bitterness starts building in the finish. Mixed hops (Euro hops?) throughout but no strong hop note other than an unfortunate long-lasting, earthy bitterness in the aftertaste. M: Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. O: Decent, but leans to the less fruity and more earthy ends of the APA spectrum.

wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2013
Tasted on 4/15/13 from a 12oz twist-cap bottle purchased at Grand Cru. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is a nice blend of caramelized orange peel, honey, a touch of caramel, citrus, and resin hops. The flavor is the same, with the caramelized orange peel the main focus and all of the bitter hops notes balancing the sweet notes. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long resin hops and caramelized orange peel finish. This is a solid pale ale.

12oz bottle pours a clear orange with some creamy, white head. Nose has plenty of Belgian character, some tropical fruit, candy sugar, flavored rum, papaya. Flavor is sweet, candy, orange peel, tropical fruit, papaya, mango, a little danish. Medium bodied, sweet finish.

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale, hazy wheat color, with a big, fluffy, white head. Thick, clumpy lacing all over the glass. The aroma is biscuit dough, pine, hard cheese, and dirt. Very bitter flavor, with a little bit of malt sweetness. Medium body, sticky, slightly rocky and a little carbonation, Overall, this is a good, hop-forward pale ale.

Cybercat (3378) - Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Robust aroma is quite hoppy with a citrus undertone that is equal parts grapefruit and Mandarin orange. Pours a nice clear golden with a fairly thick and rather persistent ivory head that "pillows" just a bit. Hoppy flavor has a malty and slightly sweet undertone, plus more than a hint of citrus. Is this a "regular" pale ale or an IPA? Smooth, firm texture has quite a bit of fizz and sass, leaving a hoppy and fruity finish. I look forward to trying more brews from Petes/Krebs. Viva Oklahoma!

Solid beer--lots of carbonation; nice kick. Easy to drink despite the elevated ABV. Not as good as the Spring IPA, but at least Choc finally has a year-round beer for us hop heads.
