UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a finger and a half of a white head that dissipates to a nice thick lacing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. How a pale ale should look. Smells of tons of floral notes, some resinous, dank qualities, grapefruit, a soapy quality to it, some juicy fruits like pineapple. Do get some bread and grain as well from the malt. Taste starts with some resinous, yet juicy qualities from the hops such as grapefruit, just tons of floral, almost a perfume-like flavor. Then the middle brings some balance with wheat notes, grain, and carmel. Get some qualities here that may suggest some to say it is "watered down," but I disagree. The finish is more of the prominent floral qualities of the hops, as well as some pine, grass, pineapple, grapefruit, carmel. Crisp, light body with a creamy and thin mouthfeel. This is not on the Alpha King or Zombiedust level for apa’s, but it is definitely a quality, hoppy pale ale that I would gladly have anytime I can get my hands on some.

Lightly hazy orange pour with a nice white head and good lacing. Aroma us citrus, toffee, and some pine. Taste citrus rind, caramel, grass, and pine. Nice clean bitterness with some malt sweetness. Dry finish. Easy to drink.

michaelinwa (627) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Can from trade with jtjager. Pours a moderate head, dense, with nice lacing. Aroma is indistinct and bland. Very little in the way of hop bitterness; this is a pale ale to me, not an American pale ale.

Berard (417) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Can. Pours deep yellow with medium head that lingers. Medium carbonation over balanced hop malt aroma. What a great hop forward pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at Bottlefork in Chicago. Well balanced, fragrant, dry, and light. Lots of stonefruit, grapefruit, fresh grassy hops. Bitter hoppy finish.

Clownoisseur (344) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Can, poured into pint glass. Vibrant golden-honey color, off-white head that settles into fine lacing. Lively carbonation up the glass! Aromas of fresh cut flowers, onion, pepper and mild notes of breads. Taste is bitter upfront, settling into a nice crisp floral/grassy hop finish. Solid stuff and crushable at the abv!

2/5/15 Finley Dunnes (Draft) - Really enjoyed the taste of this IPA. Somewhat strong, but not overpowering, the beer went down easy and smooth. I liked the distinct taste, and will definitely order down the road.
