12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy orange with an epically large head. Damn. Perpetual head retention... Good lacing. Aroma is caramel, citrus and leafy, vegetal hops. Taste is citrus hops and caramel. Medium bodied.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2010
Cloudy amber pour. A huge head...a gusher actually. Aroma smells of old stale cardboard. And maybe some rocky dirt. Flavor isnt much better. More cardboard and nastiness. DRAINPOUR.

12oz bottle. Poured a deep and slightly hazy orange color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, some orange peel and a little doughy and earthy. Tastes of caramel, citrus, oranges and light grapefruit. Body a tad on the thin side.

DSG (9303) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[3/3/15] Draught at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Clear golden. Aroma of citric and floral hops and mild maltiness. Flavor has mild sweetish malt and nice bitter citric hops. Medium-bodied. Nice.

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Fine particles suspended in the body hazing it up. Thin off-white head, leaving good thicker lace. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Kind of a bready malt flavor, lightly grainy. Lighter on the hop. Some light pine, herbal hop. Little bit of citrus. Moderate sweet taste, light bit of bitterness. OK, kind of sweeter malt-forward pale ale (who knows how old it is). Luckily it’s not a big caramely malt sweetness though, it’s solidly pale.

jercraigs (9041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
2010-07-03. Lightly hazy orange body, small creamy off-white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is modestly bitter throughout, light citrus hops (tropical, hints at floral, lemon), mild lingering tangerine. Mild malt is a bit odd/grainy and does not always play nicely with the hops. Aroma of muted citrus seeds, off-putting overtones that are not quite bile/sweat, more likely an odd variation on resiny/leafy hop character. Average to light palate. Odd. On tap at Hales, Seattle

mabel (7712) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2010
[3096-20100703] Tap. Mild sweaty dog aroma with floral hints. Hazy, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. General grainy floral yeast flavour does not have a lot to it other than some bitter citrus notes. Medium body. Sessionable but not my favourite.
