Really quality pale ale. Drinks really nicely. Palate is smooth. Hops are mild and malts are crisp and smooth. Nice pale ale.

On draft. I was told this was an IPA by the incompetent server, so will try to adjust my rating accordingly. Initially I was thinking this was one weak effort. But given the PA category, it’s OK, decent, but still far too bland for my tastes. Pours light amber with some floral hop aroma, but rather subtle. Crisp finish with some carbonation. A light, I suppose, refreshing but overall bland and boring pale ale in my opinion.

Bottle. Poured into my favorite DFH tulip glass a clear golden orange color with a 1 finger white head that quickly settles to form a white coaster on top of the beer. Slight floral and a dose of mild citrus greats the nostrils upon the first whiff, rather nice, mild breadiness as well. The flavor is nice with a soft sweetness and light bitterness from the hop additions. Medium mouthfeel. Some watered down mandarin orange type flavors. Overall, a nice, easy drinking beer with some full flavors.

Is everything these guys make good? This sure is. All the typical pale ale characteristics except they are all amplified a notch or two higher. Nice aroma, the flavor is crisp and clean, great dry refreshing finish.

Dark golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus, seemingly amarillo hops, and toasted malts. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, toffee malts, and a grapefruit finish.

Good version of a pale ale, with a clean orange appearance and average hops aroma. I occasionally buy this when it is on sale for 6.99 per six pack and am usually happy with the purchase.

Better looking in the glass than the Double barrel ( to me), golden body with decent head. Pleasant hop aroma, good first impression in the taste but then had not a lot of depth, drank ok just hoping for a little more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Cara-malty aroma with fruity notes of grapefruit, mango and flowery, slightly piney hops. Moderately bitter flavour, light bodied but not watery with a rather soft carbonation. Mildly (cara-)malty taste with a fruity and slightly piney hops character, accompanied by subtle nutty spots; quite dry and delicately bitter finish with fruity and slightly flowery hoppy notes. A pleasant session beer. 24.IV.11
