Can to teku, red-amber pour with sizeable head. Nose of sweet malt, citrus juice, a bit of spice and pine, floral notes playing with smooth lemon on top. Flavor has a more pronounced pine, evenly matched with a clean yet sweet malt presence. Citra notes and flowers tag along closely behind. Well-balanced, soft carbonation, clean finish, a true representation of the surreally-cleansing, bright, and sweet trails of the Metroparks.

hayduke (3778) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 20, 2015
On tap at brewery in Portland, OR. Pours orange with white head. Nose of pine hops. Medium body. Flavor is a lot of pine and citrus on top of a little tropical fruit. With this kind of bitterness not sure what this not classified as an IPA. Decent beer though.

markwise (4867) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2015
On draft at Fat Headís in Cleveland. Pours a nice yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is caramel, grapefruit zest, and some orange with a mild malt presence. Flavor is similar with orange, grapefruit, and all manner of citrus. Light in body and an awesome pale ale overall.

DuffMan (8062) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2015
On tap at the brewery in Portland, RBSG. Medium gold body. Piney hop profile with grapefruit too, clean pale malts, low sweetness, intensely bitter finish. This is the kind of beer that could easily be an IPA instead of an APA.

brokensail (13676) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 27, 2015
On tap @ Fat Heads PDX. Orange pour with white foam. Sweet grape juice and grains. A lot of bready malt and grass. Kind of dusty smelling. Meh. Husky and grassy bitterness to the flavor. A lot of grainy sweetness and esters as well. Just all around not very good.

Steasy66 (1086) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Pretty decent pale but too malty for my taste. Citra is muted, somewhat generic bitterness. Iíd be happy to drink this again but wouldnít seek it out.
