Beautiful golden/caramel color. Nice, hoppy signature smell. Dry on the tongue and a slightly bitter finish. Very nice Pale Ale. I would definitely get this again.

Very hoppy. Right up there with the best of beers. The commercial deScription says it all.

Great hoppy aroma. Make sure you buy it from a cooler, and not from a shelf.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruity, sweet aroma, with notes of toasty grain and caramel, orange, and a slight background earthy spiciness. Medium copper color, clear, with an unusually persistinent and creamy head. Balanced from beginning to end, with just the right amount of Crystal and toasty caramel malt sweetness blended into 65 IBUs of juicy, citric, lightly spicy hops. Even the aftertaste features some brown sugary maltiness to balance out the lingering hop bitterness. Medium-full body, chewy palate. One of the best American Pales I've had thus far.

You know that feeling when you run into a good old buddy that you haven;t seen in the longest time? While they might be the very coolest or famous or any other thing like that, you just like them for what they are. Think I feel that here, This is a real PALE ALE that speaks to me. It has what I like. It has what I want. Plenty bitter and just right with a body that supports it. And now I will delve in to the plagiarism minutia: (or does it count if I give footnotes and a page of additional references?) Oakes - pithy/ ohmper - citrusy/ Bov - smooth/ austinpowers - pretty/ Gusler - excellent/ joet - bushy/ Aubrey - shocking(ly)/ alcfron- bold/ TAR- best/ urbnhautebourg - favorite .... Hey teach do I get extra credit for using these out of context?

Wonderful hoppy thing it is. Colour is copper red. Nice dry finish. Perfect summer refreshment, well year round for that matter.

very slightly hazed amber influenced orangish color with a solid sheet of dense foam above..bready, grainy, and slightly spicy hop aromas rise and blend with mango fruitiness..some spicy pine flavors circulate at times with malty mango fruitiness too..semi-full body..slight bitterness in the aftertaste..flavors grow and change dimensions within...the pine flavors get stronger..the bitterness growns..1st sip and last were quite different.

This brew has one hell of an aroma. Assertively hopped for sure. Has the reddish copper color typical of the style. Not a typical taste. Does taste kind of piney like the deScription says. Very good brew.

Bright orange-copper in colour. Big aroma of hops, along with a nice dose of cirtus. The flavour is of hops, sweet, with a great balance of malts. Finishes bitter and slightly dry. Thanks PsychProf.
