COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Simcoe hops bring a plethora of flavors and aromas from this crisp American Pale Ale. From floral to earthy, citrus to pine, this dry ale is an easy drinker.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks kerenmk. Deep golden. Aroma slightly stale hops, malt, a bit of caramel. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of caramel, and bitterish citric and piney hops with a light stale note. Light to medium-bodied. Decent.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is grapefruit and floral hops. The taste is grapefruit, orange peel, and hops. It’s crisp and refreshing. It’s tasty enough to be interesting and still refreshing and sessionable. This is pretty good.

malvrich (233) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2016
12 oz. bottle with no dating found. A: Poured a huge creamy head in my chalice. Long retention looks like an ice cream float. Rich orange tinted clear gold body. S: Orange zest and brown toast mainly. Amber-esque. T: Fruity and pine flavors meld together then a mild malty sweetness. Hoppy but with nice balance. More orange toward the end. M: Soft creamy carbonation from the still standing head. Longish coating finish. O: Pleasant surprise here. Well priced and widely available means an easily recommended pale ale. Points though for no dating.

Bottle: Bright, intense flavor that mellows out fast. Super drinkable. The opaque honey color makes this beer look gorgeous in a sun-drenched pint.

bytemesis (6588) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Tap. Pours hazy golden Amber, medium beige head, good lacing. Aroma is light, oddly non descript. Hints of bathroom, citrus. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, kinda harsh. Not really much going on. Light plus body, lingering bitterness. Meh...

cheap (5253) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Bot. Short burst of hop perfume when popped. Rather cloudy light orange. Taste is not as rude as expected, actually quite muted. Yes, for a pale ale, it does not get too close to the ipa border. I found this rather decent for an ale change. Bitterness builds to the finish but its never quite in yer face.

kevinsenn (1970) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2016 On tap at Hi-wire. Light fruity aroma; hard to get much out of it. Light peachy and bready taste. Bitter finish. It?s alright but not thrilling.

shigadeyo (3633) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2016
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Foggy golden color with a white crown, toasted maltiness, bittersweet citrus, grassy, mild bitterness, quite drinkable and pretty good overall. 12 fl oz bottle.

Had this from the source in asheville, a really nice and juicy pale ale. Very easy to drink, I had a few!

Dogbrick (11323) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of piney hops, fruit and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
