4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

pours a bold orange. Nose is lots of citrus and pine, fresh lemon rind, semi sweet malts. Flavor is dry malt, citrus as hell, sticky pine. Very nice drinking pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery. Orange-amber pour with an off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing. I pick up grapefruit, grass, a touch of pine, and doughy malt in the aroma. The flavor follows that, showing grapefruit rind, sturdy sweet malt, a touch of resin, and a sharp bitter finish. Very good. In some ways this reminds me of Jai Alai.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a near clear orange gold with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus note with a bit of grapefruit bitterness and light grain. Flavor has a good amount of citrus up front with a hint of light grapefruit with a nice grain backing.

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a deep hazy orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is big citrus hops with grapefruit and a hint of pine. Flavor is similar- sessionable-ish and lots of big hops, kind of astringent in the finish, but a hop bomb nonetheless. Light to medium and body and pretty darned good.

On draft at Cigar City, pours a light amber color, aromas oof citrus, lemon zest, light sweet malt, and a touch of caramel. Flavors follow suit, little bitter orange peel in the aftertaste. A solid beer to drink outside.
