On tap at Boise airport. Pours a dark amber with a thin straw colored head. Good hop palate right off the bat with a lingering bitterness. First time I’ve had this beer. Rather enjoyable. I could see having a couple very easily.

Bottle. Pale copper appearance. Floaties are present, decent head, with very good lacing. Heavy malt and yeast aroma. Smooth with a late bitter finish. Bitter taste is long lasting.

MaltOne (214) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Pours a slightly hazy copper with substantial frothy head. Flavor is bright with nice malt hops balance. Medium body. Very drinkable, yet with some complexity. 5/2/14 update - this just keeps getting better. Flavors of roasted spice, rye seeds, finishing with refreshing hops. Note, its unfiltered, so it can pour sediment and be cloudy.

snoworsummer (2085) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2014
From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly off white head. Tastes sweet, hoppy, very malty, light orange citrus. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus, pine, resin, and sweet caramel malt.

sonnycheeba (3501) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle from sampler pack. Pours mostly clear golden amber wit creamy off-white head. Aroma is toasted and cereal malts, light caramel, floral notes, oranges, and fresh yeast esters. Flavor is a good balance of cereal malts and floral hop bitterness, light grassy notes, and faint citrus esters; dry finish with a touch of bitterness. Medium body and carbonation.

I'm shocked this is rated so low. Of all the pale ale styles I've tried this is one of the better ones. I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
