Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 7, 2009
THOUGHTS: Nice. Not the typical pale ale. Way more acidic and less bitter than most. Nice and fairly sessionable. Nice balance. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a hazy, light orange with an average to large, off-white head that kept a thin sheet and left excellent lacing. The aroma was nice but a little weak. There was light caramel malt, moderate grapefruit and orange citrus hops, earthy hops and lots of fruit. The initial flavor was slightly sweet and rather acidic; while the finish was very acidic, lightly bitter and sour with an average duration. The medium body was dry with soft carbonation and a dry and moderately astringent finish.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a honey body with a white head. Pine y light metallic aroma. Grass pine, and a herbal tea like quality. A hint of honey. A good pale ale.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is sweet with malts, grains, earthiness, grass and pine. The taste is pretty smooth and refreshing with malts and a touch of biscuit to start and then moving toward a tasty thicket of pine, grassy and earthy hops. To midway and finish a tangy yet sweet up welling of citrus and esters joins in to provide added interest and balance. Nice pale ale.

keepersj12 (3062) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Nice citrus pine aroma. Pours amber with a lacing head. Flavor is nicely balanced with malty sweetness up front followed by a hop bitterness. Finish is dry and smooth. Good stuff.

EithCubes (5619) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle. Lovely fruit and heavy pine nose. Lychee, mild grapefruit, some lemon cleaner, and spice. Pour is an orange gradient (rather like some ESBs) which supports a rocky, tiny-bubbled beige head. Taste is bone-dry and lightly bitter with medium-strong tart-/sourness, just imagine super-heavy orange peel. If it had some wheat in the bill, would be a damn good base beer for adding coriander and lacto and getting a bitter Gose. Medium body and a puckering aftertaste. Different and interesting.

12oz bottle-pours a rich light tan head and copper/amber color. Aroma is citrus-orange/some herbal-tea hops, sweet medium malt-honey. Taste isherbal-tea, citrus-orange/resin hops, sweet medium malt-honey, a bit too herbal for my taste. Soft carbonation.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2009
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with ditmier. Pours a very hazy gold with a moderate off-white head that faded to a film after the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of citrus (predominantly grapefruit but not solely) along with some light malt. The flavor is dry malt up front followed by a solid dose of grapefruit hops bitterness. The grapefruit is a combination of fruit and pith. A solid pale ale.

poisoneddwarf (2283) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 3, 2009
12 oz bottle. Average American pale ale. You’ve had one 100 times before and probably will have 100 more that taste exactly like this. Tasty, yet nothing special.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up toffee and caramel maltage with spicy floral, citrus, and light fruity hops accenting.. quasi-sweet overall and well-balanced. The flavor had more of the toffee and some pale bready malts at the core, again with spicy floral and citrusy bitterness around.. warmth brought out mild oxidation.. tacky on the finish with lingering bitterness and warmth. Medium-bodied with OK balance on the palate.. a bit hotter than it should’ve been on the back.. decent one.

On tap at Rick’s Press Room in Meridian, ID, this pours a clear golden color with a slightly citric flavor and aroma.
