Strong caramel malt aroma, with some citrus hop. Great citrus/berry and spicy hop flavor; almost cinnamon-like in the finish. The caramel malt flavor is OK; a little weird, better than the aroma. Some bready flavor and bitterness in aftertaste.

Pours a clear copper colour with large long lasting off white head that leaves fantastic lace all up the glass. Aroma is sweet caramel, floral, tropical fruit, and citrus. Flavour is well balanced citrus, caramel, resin, a moderate mix of bitter and sweet, definitely didnít expect the 6.2 abv. This is an extremely tasty and dangerously session-able!

I like this beer. Hop flavor thatís laid back, nice color and lacing. Great session beer. The aroma is the only part where I think it falls short, some of that nose from an IPA but very earthy otherwise, "holding back".

Tap. Poured clear ruby color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spruce hop and earthy aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Come across like a brown ale mated with an IPA. A caramel overtone mutes a medium bitterness. Overall an easy-going beer that packs a little punch at the finish.

Bottle from Caponeís. Pours copper colored with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is resiny floral hops, tropical citrus, caramel malt. Tastes of piney hops, caramel malt, mild, and some off-putting butyric acidic notes late.

On tap at RIBCO, pours a clear golden orange with a bubbly white head and lacing, the aroma has a nice flowery touch with a little bit of citrus mixed in, the flavor has a nice floral front end with a balanced finish in the finish, all around pretty solid and enjoyable.

Pale ale as it should be. Deep orange pour with a long-living off-white head and a citrus aroma. Taste is just beautiful. Somewhat sweet robust malt flavor, with crispness and citrus complexity -- and just the right amount of bitterness -- courtesy of hops. Somehow manages to meld all thatís going on in a sublime medley that seems like itís going to delve too deep into malt, but then pulls back to end crisply. Absolutely splendid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear medium amber with head that fades low but leaves great lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with a great balance of bready caramel malts. Taste is sweet malts, then just a hint of resin as the hops make themselves known. The malts are never overpowered, and at best the hops make it 50/50. Everything melds into a well-blended aftertaste. Palate is medium-bodied and well carbonated. This is a very drinkable and enjoyable brew.

Copper pour with white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, with fruity and floral hops. Medium bodied. Well balanced between sweet malts and sprucey, floral hops. Super fresh and great for the style.
