Draught at Gingerman NYC. Pours peachy yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus fruits: both orange and huge amoutns of grapefruit. Taste is of a citrus pith but very smooth. Notes of pine and grass. Slightly bitter but excellent finish. Terrific beer.

Cloudy Gold Pour with a white head. A very good hop mix for a pale ale. Some nice fruits, citrus, resin, and a little pine flavor. It is damn good!

Fresh hops assault my nostrils. Mildly sweet & fruity notes from the hops. Crisp, refreshing taste. This particular pour tastes a bit old, but I know from experience that Edward is quite a bit better fresh. This one is quite underrated; totally sessionable and delicious.

6oz pour at Farmhouse Tap and Grill in Burlington. Hazy orange with thin lacing white head. Nose is both musty and juicy, fresh orange peel, orange juice, grapefruit juice, pine tar, pine needles, soap. Flavor is almost exactly the same, grapefruit zest, orange juice, dried pine tar, meyer lemon, lime zest. Dry, lightly bitter, refreshing finish. Superb.

This poured a light orange color with an off white head. Aroma was citrus, light grain, some grass, and some earthy notes. Flavor was much the same, very well balanced between juicy hops and light grain. Great example of the style.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 Sampled at the brewery. Pours cloudy golden. A lot of hops and some malts. Flavor of a lot of citrus and bitter hops. Average texture. A great pale ale. Edit: Many, many growler pours after the original sample. This is the best pale ale in existence.
