UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 From a 12 ounce brown bottle. Poured into a 12 ounce clear glass tumbler. Enormous white head atop an orange-amber beer. Big aroma of hops and citrus. Very slightly bitter finish. Never did get the head less than about 3 inches. Dimpled cloud-like head. Truly a sessionable APA. Will be trying the on-tap version when I can. Kudos to Golden Valley Brewery for the label design...Very distinctive and classy. Good session APA.

Decent pale ale that strikes a nice balance between the citrus hops and caramel malt. Easy drinking session beer.

linc33 (184) - Albany, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2006
On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Copper coloured. Light hop in the mouth and strong, over-hopped bitterness in the finish. Slight citrus also. Definitely the best one here, but not worth purchasing.

Cloudy well carbonated orange. Lasting cream coloured head. Citrus hop aroma as advertised. Fizzy orange zest flavour. Thick malty mouth feel.

A very mellow, smooth and light tasting pale ale. Very well balanced with alot of citrus notes, and a bit of a soapy finish.

CaptKirk (175) - Hephzibah, Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Had the sampler of this at the brewery. Came amber in color with no head. Citrus aroma that reminded me of their wheat. Very smooth for a pale ale. I was pleasantly surprised.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap at the brewery. Pours a very clear amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma had some nice floral citrus hops to it, kinda smells like citrus candy. Nice hoppy pale with a very smooth texture with a nice medium bitterness in the aftertaste.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Amber color, light white head, very sticky & creamy, nice. Floral hop notes, very sweet with a caramel & lilac nose. The flavor is herbal with some fresh hop notes (maybe dry hopped?). Finishes with some alcohol & musty dry hops. Decent fresh pale but again ends very weak.

Medium gold color, medium head. A medium bodied pale ale. Light malts, slightly spicy. Nice balance. Good flavor. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Nice beer. Light and refreshing yet lots of flavor
