American hoppy. Strong fruit aroma along citrus and slight pine. Med bitterness and high carbonation. Taste mirrors aroma but with som malt backbone to make a well balanced flavor.

On tap at The Postcard Inn. Cloudy burnt orange pour with white head. Unfortunately I have to admit I am drinking this beer out of a 16oz plastic cup. Oh the shame!! Mild citrus hop aromas. Mild citrusy hop notes. Good balance, good body, and mouthfeel.

Poured a cloudy yellow color with aromas of citrus, light caramel malt and some zest. Flavors were citrus and some malt a decent and drinkable pale ale.

Tap at shamrock! Clear straw pour strong white head and great lacing. Floral and citrus hop aroma caramel malts. On the malty side but finishes dry with floral bitterness. Kind of reminds me of a new English IPA. Thin body and very drinkable. I like it!

Draft sample at CCB. Poured hazy dark golden color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate tropical citrus complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

markwise (4310) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2013
On draft at CCB. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-gold with a white head. Nose is light caramel and a huge hoppy bite with some sweet citrus and some light pine. Flavor is an amazing burst of hops at 5%- citrus, pine, tropical fruit, and grassy hops all manifest. Simply awesome. Now that I have had it, I have to drink it when I see it on tap. Light in body and great hop flavor for the ABV.

With all the bold beers I drink I love finding good sessionable Pilsners and Pale Ales. Can from CCB. Poured into a pint glass. Golden colors with slight haze. Good carbonation. Aroma was powerful for a Pale Ale. Fresh hops, pine, citrus. Taste is bold with straight hop presence of pine, citrus, and a little musty. Full flavor, but light body. What can a fat guy like me ask for?? LOL. Crisp finish. Really enjoyed it.

On tap at American Social, Ft Lauderdale, pours a dark to medium orange rusty pour with a all head . Nose is hoppy and full of deep citrus. Taste is bitter with hoppy citrus flavors as well. Fully balanced and full of taste. Finish is bitter sweet and ends on the citrusy notes. Would not expect anything else from Wayne and Co. Quaff Score 8 / 10, can it rival Zombie dust ?

On tap at American Social in Fort Lauderdale. Pours a dark gold with a white head and aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is bitter sweet, nice hoppy bitter notes with citrus, pine, toasty caramel and resin coming through leading to a dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable, tasty APA

Draft at Brass Tap Trinity. Pours a mostly clear golden orange color. Smaller white head but pretty good lacing. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Flavor has a slight fruity sweetness up front with some hop bitterness in the finish. Easy drinking pale ale.
