wedgie9 (2029) - 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.

jgb9348 (4816) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Rich copper coloured body with a nice single centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light hops, some good rich malt and a lot of caramel and sugars on the finish. Medium-bodied; Strong malt body with a light flavour of english and low alpha acid hops and a touch of sugars near the finish. Aftertaste shows some nice hops, a touch of malt and some subdued herbal notes. Overall, a nice pale with a good flavour and a rich malt flavour that shows more than the hops. I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Switzer’s Wine & Spirits in Norman, Oklahoma on 13-September-2014 for US$1,99 sampled a few minutes later at a tailgate in Norman - Thanks Phil (haddon90)!

bytemesis (3437) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear butterscotch with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving good lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel, perfume, oranges. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, perfumy, floral, orange blossoms - very different and unexpected. Light body, high carbonation. Points for novelty, but in the end it did not come together for me.

jmagnus87 (2548) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a solid 3 fingers of thick white head. Aroma of citrus and spruce. Taste is heavily bitter. Citrus at first, then dominated by pine and grapefruit. Full bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, very good. Just wish I had a couple more bottles. I’ll definitely be looking for more from these guys.

DrewFace (846) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a mostly clear deep amber color with large foamy, rocky off white head. Big danky and earthy hop aroma, pale malt, caramel malt notes. More caramel malt character in the flavor, semisweet, hops present more earthy and danky, mild bitterness in the finish.

PorterPounder (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler Shop - on tap. My first rating of an Oklahoman beer - only two states left!Bright light gold pour, bubbly white head,decent lacing. Light spruce in the aroma, perhaps a touch of mint. Crisp refreshing flavor with some light citrus bitter notes, a touch of pear fruitiness, just a hint of mint. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. Enjoyed this while walking around the store picking out my take homes.
