Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. can. It pours a light copper color with a sizable rocky off white head. The nose has plenty of citrus and pine. The flavor is orange, pine resin, and slight herbal notes. Robust bitterness for a pale ale. Still, quite a tasty beverage.

Fat Head's Saloon, Pittsburgh, draft. Smells very good, hoppy and woody and bitter. Dark golden and clear. Very bitter and dry. A little soapy tasting, but mostly good. Very dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Art (2121) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Can from vintage estates. Pours a clear reddish orange with a fluffy white head. 50 day old can and already no hops whatsoever. Pretty disappointing. Slight candied orange aroma. Pretty bitter for a pale ale. More in the IPA territory.

On draft. Cooper color with small white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Taste is more resinous with a little tropical fruit. Overall pretty good.

Growler at the 2014 pre-FoFA bottle share. Pours golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral and lightly citrusy hops, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A pretty good pale ale.

dfroms (462) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Can dated 9/16, wet-hopped variant. Pours a deep orange/amber with one inch of gorgeous head, good retention. Aroma is pungent grapefruit, pine, orange peel, candied lemon, dank hops. Taste is bitter orange juice with notes of grapefruit peel, caramel, light mango, and resinous/soapy hop bitterness. Medium to low carbonation. Super quenching but still somewhat old-school Ė on the maltier side Ė like a super-charged, new wave Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Really good, if not a showstopper.

b33r (699) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Dark orange color, hazy, with medium white fluffy head and nice lacing. Aroma has huge citrus & pine hops and flavor is sweet, citrusy, resinous with a light amber matiness, and little bitter finish. Great flavor, fresh, clean & easy drinking

Only had this as a taster. Not as bright as the Sunshine Dream - citrus and resin notes. Taste was bright and clean though.

Pours a clear orange with a medium white head. Lots of orange and citrus aroma. The taste was a bitter orange. Hoppy and flavorful.
