On draught at 1808 American Bistro. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, toasted malt and a bit of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Above average overall.

On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out earthy notes and floral hops. Flavour is nicely balanced, with floral hops, earthy notes and a dry biscuity malt backing. Dry, smooth and drinkable. Solid pale ale.

DrSilverworm (8163) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 On tap at Dutchís, wet-hopped version. Mostly clear orange amber color. Great thin rocky off-white head, leaves very nice lace. Awesome juicy, citrusy hop nose. Some floral hop, light spicy hop. A very light caramel, sort of toasty malt backbone. Medium-plus body, lightly sticky. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. moderate bitter taste, light sweet finish. Very tasty hoppy pale ale, very nice complex hop flavor, with a long juicy hoppy citrusy aftertaste. Awesome. Significantly better than the standard.

Earlier Rating: 8/17/2013 Total Score: 3.6
Taster on tap at Neonís. Half hazy orange amber color. Thin white head. Leaves respectable lace. Stronger, but spicier hop profile. Some grapefruity citrus hop. More assertive, aggressive hop profile for a pale, I like it. Grapefruit citrus and little tropical fruit. Light spicy hop, some spicy malt. Caramel malt profile. Bigger bitter taste, kind of zesty, minimal sweet. Good, assertive, hoppy bitter pale ale. Just not as smooth or easy drinking as your typical pale ale.

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Draft at The Lackman, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear gold color with a small white head that leaves streaks of lace in the glass. The aroma is way more dank than expected, with marijuana, cat piss, cheese, onion, caramel, and grapefruit. Flavor of herbal tea, citrus, pale and caramel malt, lemon, and leaves. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, leafy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Really unusual, memorable, interesting APA.

Draft - Pale malts and light hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Bittering hops and nice pale malts. Basic, but decent.

Draft at Dutchís a couple months ago. Pours a clear dark golden/amber color with a small to medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale and toasted malts, light caramel, with herbal, citrus and light earthy hops, grass, lingering bitterness. The nose was a little weak.
