Pours a deep copper with an antique white head. Impressive head retention. Mown grass and citrus nose. Pleasant mouthfeel with an enjoyable, but peculiar mix of caramel malt and tangerine gummy worms. It finishes as smooth as it begins. This beer is an excellent example of a fresh hopped ale while managing to be pleasantly different.

Floral and citrusy aroma. Floral and resin like hop flavor. Malty sweetness is present but minimal. Very refreshing ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 Copper color on the pour. The aroma is a very clean pine with some light citrus hints. Taste is actually a little lighter then I expected from the smell. Very mellow pine taste through out with that fresh hop bitterness at the end. Over all I would have to say a very above average drinkable beer. Good work.

Bottle at home. Pour is clear copper with a two-finger cream head and great lacing. Floral, grassy, somewhat spicy aroma, with notes of caramel, bread, grapefruit peel, and rye. Taste is bready, sweet caramel, light toffee, grassy, fruity, light citrus, biscuit, and wet hops with a light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent APA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was orangish gold with creamy lasting off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel, pale 2-row malts with slight citrus fruits and pine. Taste was sweet honey, pale malt base with hints of grapefruit, pine, lemon, no alcohol present. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with meduim body, then average length balanced hop and malt finish. One of the best Pales I’ve tasted...
