Tap at brewery. Pours clear golden. Hoppy and dry for a pale ale. Grapefruit. Dry aftertaste.

Lubiere (10485) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
A hazed blonde ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, rather grainy malt with grassy hops, like it was made for a kit. In mouth, a grainy malt with light British hops, so-so. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

arkurzynski (1593) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2012
Deep golden color. Aroma of mostly pale malt and grassy hops. Flavor is pale malts and slighty herbal hops. Not overly bitter and a bit nutty. Clean finish.

deyholla (7017) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a near clear very pale gold with a white head that dissipates very slowly to the edges and laces thickly. Aroma has a nice hop profile of citrus and pine with a bit of backing sweet grain. Flavor starts with a grassy hop note and then finishes with a bit of pine and a strong sweet grain backbone.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Draft at GT. Hazy orange-yellow-tan. Thick white head. Fresh citrus laced respectable aroma. A really solid, fresh APA. Really captures the style well. Earthy, toffee tones. Medium bodied, all around pleasant. Some light flowery tones. Nails the style, while remaining sessionable. Leans toward citrus hops, but well balanced. Nice, but forgettable.

andyhwcinc (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at the Grumpy Troll in Mt. Horeb, WI. Appearance is a cloudy light gold, thin white head, looks kind of like pineapple juice. Aroma of light citrus, bit of yeast, doesn’t really smell hoppy. Taste is not too hoppy but also the malt gives it a slight crispness, straw hay as well, half way through figured out it wasn’t an ipa. Light but decent.

BVery (6984) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Hazy light yellow pour with no head. Wheat and light malt on the nose. Lighter palate. Mild citrus, clove on taste.

crossovert (7961) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Not that bad of a pale ale, but overall it is nothing special. Some decent hoppiness but that is it.

3.6
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 15/20
Narnad (1472) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours a golden color, slight haze to it and a low off-white head. Aroma has a Maris Otter malt toasty presence with a modest amount of citrus and earthy hops. Flavor has an orange citrus kick early but moves into a solid Maris otter malty middle. Body was perfect for the hops. Overall one of the better brews here. Had two pints of these when there.

cbfobes (2349) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, pours a hazy golden with a nice white head and lacing through out the glass, aroma has a nice hop touch with some citrus notes coming through, the flavor ahs a nice hop front end that is pretty decently balanced, honestly, not bad.
