COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boasting the essence of grapefruit and citrus, aromatic Citra hops make this ale dangerously drinkable on a warm day, but always a good choice year round.

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Strong aroma of bitter grapefruit and malt. Nearly clear medium / light amber with an out-of control white head (you could eat it with a big spoon!), bulging lace bands. I canít explain the head, maybe itís getting old. Taste is highly carbonated malt that adds mild citrus hops as it moves through a relatively short finish. Simple and drinkable,....except for that head.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, peach, orange zest, light pine, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, peach, orange zest, pine, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, pineapple, peach, orange zest, pine, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness. lightly increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Sample from a bottle. Kind of spicy, mild citrusy hop. Some plain bready watery malt. Clear orange color. Good thin white head, good bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter, kind of soft carbonation. Mild spicy bite in the end. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Kind of a strange pale ale.

cheap (5216) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle, slightly cooler than room temp. Pillowy head. Mild hop perfume olfactory. A little less bitter than stronger IPA, but ipa ish none the less. Yes, quite hoppy bitter. Barely any co2. Sometimes I canít tell the difference between a stronger pale ale and a session ipa, go figger.

Had it out of a bottle. Pours a golden clear hue (pilsner like) and a thin white head. Bland hop taste, with soft hints of citra, the aroma is non-existent.

Draft at the brewpub. Gold pour with a small head that fades to a ring. Aroma is sweet cereal, grass, and light citrus. Tastes grassy and spicy with some sweet cereal grain malt. Light grapefruit in the finish. Decent pale ale.
