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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pours a copper color with an off-white head. Lacing sticks to my Cigar City snifter like it was painted on. Aromas of grapefruit and pine. Flavor were good and hoppy. Started with a hint of sweetness and finish with a nice hop bite. Medium bodied with a some what dry finish. Overall a nice pale ale featuring a great hop blend!!!

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!
