3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a light copper color wih a nice creamy head and good lacing. The nose is hoppy with a light crispy citrusy note along with orange rind and sharp lemon juice. A bit of pale malt shows through, but it doesnít smell like it will be too sweet. The flavor isnít bitter at all with a light hoppy bitterness and some very simple sugars to liven it up. A decent body and mouthfeel. A bit thin in the finish but itís drawn out to extend its welcome. Decent pale ale.

Pours a hazy, pale amber with a good, white head. The aroma is a juicy orange hoppiness. Light bodied malt, a touch of cracker, but easy drinking without being too boring.

12oz bottle from cbkschubert; Nose of hops, a little orange, and maybe some casaba, unlike any other (out of 480) Iíve tried.Clear gold with a small white head; Flavor is hoppy bitter combined with a sweet friut taste that smacks of fresh peaches, but I didnít get the exact same thing from the nose. Unusal and I think underrated!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert! - Thanks Craig! - Pours golden with a fluffy white head that stays pretty well and laces the glass in weblike patterns. Aromas of light floral hops over crisp pale malts. Flavor is a very well balanced blend of floral and citrus hops over nice pale malts and light grains. There are some hints of orange and a touch of yeast in this as well. Palate is light crisp and clean with a slight bitter finish. Not a bad pale at all.
