deyholla (6595) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle at ABC beer tasting. Poured an amber gold with an off-white head. Aroma consisted of a bit of hops and malts with a sweet edge and some berry notes. Nice well balanced combo of hops and malts and finishes with a malty kick.

johnnyoski (432) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2009
12oz bottle. Slightly cloudy, light amber color with a very small off white head. Decent citrus and light pine aroma. A bitter citrus and hoppy taste from start to finish. Soft carbonation and medium bodied. Crisp and refreshing. Got my sixer directly from the brewpub so I know it was fresh.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Growler from the brewery. Hazy copper pour....with a nice head and very good lacing. Great aroma ofcitrus and grassy notes that is not too over powering. Wow this stuff is really good!!!!! Ridiculously smooth with a very nice hop character. This is one of my new favorites and could be a killer session brew

lumberjack (178) - Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2009
On tap at King...Was told this is over 7%, which I question. Very nice orange color, looks almost like a wheat. Flavor is bitter throughout, with some hop complexity showing coming through. Some caramel notes try to balance it out. Average mouthfeel, average carbonation. Really solid pale ale.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Hazy orangish amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hop and caramel. Body is a bit watery with an oily mouth feel and trends towards medium bitterness at the end. Hops aren’t that abundant but come across with some citrus and pine.

nice aroma and flavor, easy drinking. hops are in front for sure, malt is minimal and fairly unimpressive.

Goblincat (382) - Westland, Michigan, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours a hazy honey color. Very little aroma, but a nice floral and pine flavor in this. I like it overall.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2008
12oz bottle. pours medium amber, with a short off-white head. Aroma of mild hops, along with crystal malt, caramel, and some nutty character. Flavor is sweet malt with a mild amount of grapefruity hops. Long, mildly bitter finish. Drinkable, but unremarkable.
