On tap at foothills, pours an amber, gritty hop aroma, I get a bit of business that throws it all off.

LilBeerDoctor (3509) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, slight floral hops. Flavor of light pale malts, toasted malts, toffee, with bitter hops in the finish. A pretty basic pale ale and a nice drinking beer! 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

This was a pretty nice american pale ale and not a watery one like everyone else offers but a nice full flavored and body beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2010
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Pale copper pour with a medium head and decently lively carbonation. Crisp and dry hops in the aroma, very faint citrus note in there, but you quickly get a sense of the malts underpinning things. Nicely balanced even if nothing especially memorable in the flavor department. Spot on session brew.

On tap at Foothills. Dark, burnt orange in color. Strong grapefruit rind and malty aroma. Bitter citrus hop flavor of mostly tangerine and grapefruit. A good, well done pale ale.

BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Draft at Bull McCabes. Cloudy amber ruby with thin offwhite head. Straight forward pale malt with chalky bitter hop presence in the background. Crisp and easy drinking but unremarkable in most senses. Good for fans of the bitter session beers.

nickd717 (3600) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Copper color with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is caramel malt, and citrusy hops. Flavor is caramel malt, bread, earth, and citrusy/piney C-hops. Body medium for the style. Above average for a pale ale.

nearbeer (4012) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Clear gold-copper with a small lasting ring of cream above. Faint aroma of sweetish resin and citrus. Earthy resin and toasted nut flavors are well-balanced against some light malt. Light-medium body is slightly watery, creamy and dry-tingly. Very drinkable.
