Pours a coppery red, with mid-size head. Good amount of hop aroma and flavor. This was a better IPA than the official IPA on tap that evening. On tap at brewpub.

On tap at brewery. Slightly hazy light copper. Almost no aroma, just a little pale malt. Big pine bitterness with a floral aftertaste. Just a hint of malt at the end. Light medium mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The pale ale was much hopper than the IPA at Flat Branch! Too spicy and too much of a hop bite to be a pale ale in my opinion. Not easy to consume at all because of this and lacked balance.

Sampled at Flat Branch. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Citrus, grassy, hoppy flavors. Pretty light aroma and pretty mild pale ale overall.

On tap at the brewpub. Comes amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is mild grapefruit, malt, and a bit of pine. Mild APA.

ArrogantDusty (40) - Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2013
ice malty sweet and bready with mild hop aroma. Copper with a red hue. Off white head with no lace. Complex and balanced. Caramel, hearty breads, and a good blend of hops. There’s a flavor that I can’t place, and it adds a little something to the beer also. Medium to full body. Very enjoyable.

On draft at the source. The beer is light orange and pretty clear, sporting a thin white collar that fades quickly, leaving a fair amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is simple and straightforward, offering a touch of pine and hops atop a sturdy malt bill. More malty than hoppy. Light in body and easy drinking. This was ok.

unclemike (2550) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 23, 2012
tan head and amber color. Aroma is mild medium malt-caramel, faint hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, secondary faint hops with a touch of earthy/slightly metallic bittering hops, slight diacytl. Light/medium body. Decent beer but a bit lacking for the style

One of the better beers by flat branch. Pours amber, medium body, off white head. Decent balance of bready malts and citrus hops.
