Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
A hazed amber ale with a thin frothy mocha head. In aroma, nice smooth floral hops, with nice citrus, menthol, very nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with piney and citrusy floral hops, lingering and smooth, nice. On tap at brewery, Dec. 9 2012.

DialSquare (2311) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
On tap at Proof. Brown-orange pour with thin light tan head and frothy sheets of lace. Earthy malt aroma. Tastes are wet hops, spices, orange, breast. Strange creamy thin texture. Huh.

SHIG (3447) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Growler thanks to my loving wife: Poured a copper burnt orange with a frothy off white head. Aroma was hops and fruit. Very juicy wet hops with a nice mix of fruit and sweet balancing malts. Nice lingering taste!

PorterPounder (5196) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at Proof Brewing Company. Medium copper pour, off-white head with nice lacing. Slightly funky aroma with some toe jam notes. Flavor has some white grape accents, an odd unidentified spice, some juicy nectarine accents and just a touch of bitter citrus. Thickish, rich mouthfeel. Different, but pretty solid.

jbruner (1982) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange on tap with frothy off-white head that dissipates to leave great lacing. Aroma of the hops, sweet citrus and slight pine. Taste follows with a tad of pale malt back and bitter sweet finish. Decent, but not the best hop for single hopping.

Damico (2355) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Of the 3 pale ales I tried on tap at the brewery, this one is the best. The body is so juicy and thirst quenching! Pours unclear orange amber with a creamy white head. Aroma brings juicy hop sweet hop notes. Flavors are sweet and juicy citrus hops as well on a bigger than expected juicy body. Wow!

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.

amber color, aroma of grapefruit, pine hops, bread, grain, flavors are the same, nice hop flavor, crisp clean and easy to drink

Draft to taster at Cigar City. Looks solid; burnt-orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; bitter hops and semi-sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

Tap at the brewery. Muddy dark yellow pour. Big citrus pine hop aroma. Medium body, citrus hop taste. Fairly standard, yet tasty brew.
