12oz bottle, purchased today from Perfect Pour. Code on the bottle reads "06514368". Hazy orange color. Thin ring of kind of bubbly white head. Some bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Very light carbonation. Good biscuity malt flavor. Very hoppy and bitter. They’re calling this a pale ale, really? Not an IPA? Blindfolded this tastes very much like an IPA. Bigger body too, even. Light dry finish. Seems a little under carbonated though. Big bitter taste, minimal sweet. Some piney hop, bigger spicy flavor overall. Caramel. Ok stuff, a bit too over the top. Was looking for a regular pale, but even if this was looked at as an IPA it still doesn’t really shine. Gets a bit better as it warms -- some malt sweetness comes out to balance this huge bitterness.

Pours a hazy copper color with a quickly dissapating white foam head. Smells of grapefruit and even caramel. Tastes like grapefruit all the way. Good beer... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scarletfire65 (978) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy amber pour. Aroma is honey and fresh piney hops. Nicely balanced pale ale. Full bodied, heavy, thick, sweet, honey like malt is cut by bitter hops. The subtle alphas and lemony nuances of the Sorachi Ace hops are hidden by the malt, however. Very drinkable, but not memorable.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Shared at Eagle Bay Brewery. Nothing spectacular happening here. Just a well rounded slightly bitter and very grapefruit driven pale. Drinks easy. Solid stuff

deyholla (6974) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy citrus with some grass and a grain backbone. Flavor has notes of bitter citrus and pine that are backed by some earthy grains.

Nice Pale Ale. Not a PA or IPA fan because they are Hopped over the top, but this one didn’t bother me. To start this medium bodied beer is a slightly coppered gold color, with a thick off white head. It has a definite green and fruity aroma which comes through in the taste which is bitter with a punch of what kind of tastes like passion fruit. Loser didn’t have me changing my stripes to a pale ale drinker, but if I’m with IPA fans this should keep us all satisfied, and besides that the ABV did pack a nice little kick. :)
