Orange with a white head. Powerful hoppy aroma. Citrus, lemon, light orange. Very hoppy with light sweet malts. Flavor is much the same with nice floral hops, too. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable and quite fresh tasting.

Pour from a can gave a golden orange color in the glass. Nice white head. Very tasty lemon and orange rind on the nose along with some bready notes. Prickly carbonation in your mouth. Solid bitter hop punch with balanced light sweet malt. Long finish which is pretty dry. Really good and would not hesitate to drink this again.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2012 Clear golden amber with nice lacing with ok retention.... Big hoppy aroma with more hop than malt, crazy tropical fruit aromas, big hop... Nice hoppy flavor some tropical fruits very very dry finish... Medium body decent beer not as amazing as I had hoped the first time i had it, but the subsequent pints did the trick, worthy of the hype...

On tap at Pinocchio’s. Light pour, frothy head. Sweet aroma of melon and fruit leap from the glass. This one is really low on malt, loads of citrus and pine hops. Not enough actual flavor, malt. But still worth trying.

Pours a hazy yellow/honey color with a huge foamy lt tan head...nice lacing and pillowy head retention. Aroma is super floral and citrusy with mango, orange, and pineapple notes. Flavor has some light bready maltiness followed by a magnificent hop punch that exhibits light tangy citrus and spicy grapefruit...some hoppy earthiness...delectable. mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and slighty bitter. This is a great pale ale!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Pours a hazy light orange with big frothy white head. One whiff of the hop bouquet and I immediately understand why they call this daisy cutter...floral hops all the way. The taste is more of the same and it is literally like drinking pureed flower petals with moderate hop bitterness on the finish. I’ve never had anything quite like it, but it is pretty awesome.

16 oz. can courtesy of a trade with Atom. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate-large somewhat sudsy white head that was gone after a quarter of the glass and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with grapefruit and to a lesser extent pine hops. A bit of orange sweetness in the nose as well. The flavor is decidedly one sided with weak malt followed by what amounts to a hop tea with lots of bitter grapefruit. Light-medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can. Pours a hazy light orange with a 1 finger white, frothy head. Little bit of lace when the head recedes. Rich, floral hop aroma makes itself known as soon as you pop the can. Flavor is a nicely balanced mix of floral/citrus hops & sweet biscuity malt. It all works very well together. Moderate bodied with aggressive carbonation. Bitter finish. This would be a regular if it were available to me.
