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.

daknole (10801) - 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.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennanís 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 itís not a big caramely malt sweetness though, itís solidly pale.

j12601 (9286) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft citrus on the nose, crisp and clean. Medium bodied, citrus peeks through again, light and sweet. Slow citrus through the finish, clean and easy drinking.

jercraigs (9253) - 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
