kevinator (1186) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Easy to drink and refreshing. Nice hop aroma and light amber color. Light head that dissipated quickly. Nice crisp palate with good carbonation. A good amount of citrus hits you with a dry hop aftertaste. Not overly hoppy with a good balance. Good with pizza.

tfontana (63) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Candia Road Convenience. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit, citrus, spruce, herbs. Appearance is clear gold with good sparkle, minimal creamy white head and minimal lacing. Taste is not much up front but middle to end is mildly bitter (not my cup of tea). Palate is light bodied with pretty thin texture, mildly noticeable carbonation at the end. Finish is dry and abrupt. Overall, a decent ale (for me) and would likely be rated higher for someone who appreciated more bitter beers (like my wife--she gets the rest!).

Bozo_skeleton (675) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 30, 2015
Cuivrée, grosse carbo, collet moyen persistant. Aromes fruites, orange, mangue. Corps moyen, saveur orange et malt grille. Finale sur amertume legere et bien equilibree. Facile a boire.

Towey1989 (340) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bottle at Telfords Warehouse, Chester. Pours a clear amber colour with a fizzy off white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, grapefruit, orange marmalade, mango and little nutty. Taste of orange marmalade, grapefruit, mango, caramel, some resin, slight banana notes and toasted malt. Light bodied, moderate carbonation and a waxy texture. A bittersweet, toasted malt finish. Great balance of sweetness and bitterness, really easy drinking too. Even though it’s flavourful, overall it’s a standard American pale ale, which are consistently good.

SG111 (416) - New York, USA - APR 22, 2015
Bottled. Aroma is pine, orange, lemon peel, biscuit malt. Flavor is orange, slightly bitter hops, and lots of biscuit malt. Really good balance but a fairly hoppy APA. I like it. Super drinkable.

Eructoblaster (3273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle - 355ml. Limpid amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty and grapefruit hints. Taste is well balanced but relatively thin. It carries woody and citrusy notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Not bad.

Bubeer (36) - - APR 13, 2015
Amberish colour, not that pale for a pale ale, fast and abundant bubbles. Medium head with some persistance. Slightly soapy aroma. Peach and dry herbs notes in the taste, well balanced bitterness. Light body with fine carbonation.

willisread (530) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 13, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Clear amber pour with a nice off-white head. Pine needles, resin, and citrus all over the nose. Very hop forward on the palate with nice bitterness. Solid bitter finish. The malt is a little muted leaving it a little unbalanced but still a nice pale.
