This is always a favorite at our house. Especially with the missus. They seemed to get the balance of malt and hops just right. Flavorful but also quite drinkable. Well done. Serving: bottle and tap

Shot (144) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2014
On tap. Light copper color with a creamy white head. Aromas are sweet malt, biscuit and floral hops. Flavors are roasty toasty malts, nutty notes, pine needles and biscuit. Finishes with a nice, crisp hop bite. Medium mouthfeel with a slight oiliness. Very nice.

BOSSbrewer (1643) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Pours a copper amber with a thin tan head. Aroma is hoppy and piney. Flavor is smooth with a malty backbone and a nice piney hoppiness. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Color is an attractive copper with an off-white medium sized head. Aromas are fairly hoppy with pine and citrus aromas. Taste: the word that really comes to mind for this beer is "balanced". There are plenty of hop flavors but they are nicely balanced with malt flavors. The finish is pleasant with some crisp carbonation and a dry finish. I am not much of a pale ale fan, but this is a very good one that I really enjoy.

12oz bottle poured. Pours a light amber color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of grass, citrus hops, and malt. Taste of malt, light citrus, grass, and pine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarkoR (524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
12 fl. oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet malt, hops. Taste is malt, hops, citrus. Delicious! Mine was 2 weeks past the expiry date but still excellent.

BadAprilia1000 (272) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Expired Bottle by about two weeks. Aroma is very sublte, hop character is diminished quite a bit. Taste is nice though, very slight citrus and pine. Will have to get a fresh one.

czar (4382) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
(near suggested consumed by date) pours slightly hazy bright golden-orange with a small creamy white head, some retention and lacing. spicy herbal tea leaves, oranges, peaches and apricots - almost candied and lightly sour-ish fruitiness, grass and pepper, citrus, hint of cardboard. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily assertive yet balanced herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. a fresher bottle would enhance objectivity here. a nicely crafted not-over-the-hill apa.

EyeAmBaldman (236) - Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours a copper color with a thin tan head. Aroma is sweet, malty. Taste is equally sweet with a bit of citrus pine and a rather bad metallic aftertaste.
