Pretty solid. A little sweet caramelly for me, not enough hop character, especially aroma/flavor wise. Pours amber with lasting white head. Lots of bready grains in the nose.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Caramel, toasted grain, and bread in the nose with some dull citrus. Bland caramel malty, grapefruity, herbal flavor. Seems a bit old.

Masterkush7 (492) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Pour is a nice bronze, active bubbles with a thick foamy white head. Aroma is great; hops, floral, huge citrus. Taste is light-medium body, mostly bitter but balanced with the sweetness from the citrus. Finishes sharp, really refreshing and balanced ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle, frae Brew Dog on-line store. Amber looks with a middling off-white head baby. Gentle citrus and hops in the beak. More fragrant hoppage unfolded in the taste alongside some caramel malt and fruit notes. Dry. crisp and essentially a likable beer. Props to Sub Pop are definitely worth giving as well.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 23, 2014
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.

Stizz19 (58) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
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 (904) - 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.

maneliquor (2989) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 6, 2014
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

thirdeye11 (5479) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2014
(Draught) clear copper, fine white bubbles. Nose of muscat grapes, creamsickle. Taste is bitter, creamsickle, dank, spicy. Tastes force carbonated (soda-like) with prickly palate finish.
