Bottle poured a hazy copper with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, light carmel and some fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, bread and a bit o0f fruitiness with a lingering unpleasent bitterness creeping in on the aftertaste. Save your money.

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.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2006
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.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2009
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.

jercraigs (7812) - 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

Bottle. Orange malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and mild orange peel flavor. Pretty good.

Ughsmash (7137) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottled. Poured medium ambery-golden with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up toasty pale malts with accents of honey, pine, and a touch of cardboard. The flavor was a little tart on the fore with fruity character and piney bitterness present.. pale, rather generic base to it.. spicy and bitter again on the back-end, showcasing pine and earthy hoppage. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. nice and bitter for an APA, but not all that enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (6420) - 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.
