OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2009
On tap at the brewpub, 4/24/08. Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting creamy off-white head. Initial ďgreenĒ character is taken over quickly by a bready, fruity, citrus, and woody aroma. Bready malts with a citrus, fruity, and woody bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft, but very nearly flat mouthfeel. Enjoyable pale ale.

on tap at the brewpub. This is very cloudy and on the darker side of IPAís, kind of a murky dark copper. Good head here. I am surprised by the hop definition in the aroma. Itís very bright, sharp with grapefruit and pine with a dash of caramel. Palate is smooth with just enough blatant malt sweetness. Citrus is throughout with a dry, bitter finish and a tiny sour twang. I canít believe what a drinkable beer Iíve stumbled across. Props.

ben4321 (4019) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Location: On tap at the downtown Atlanta location 4/16/09

Flavor: Nice bitterness, decent flavor
Palate: Medium-Light body
Overall Impression: I thought this was a solid APA, Iím not sure if this is a new beer, but from reading the ratings of the Max Pale I have to believe this is a different beer, as it was definitely not an IPA.

on tap-pours a retaining off white head and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is nice citrus/pine hops. Taste is nice citrus/pine hops-some bitter, faint medium malt-some sweet. Semi-dry finish. OK carbonation.

The best beer of the bunch, but the more I had, the less I liked it. I think a lot people may have only had the sampler and thus overrated it. IT truel y got worse as it went on, IMO. It had a nice enough head, which was the only thiing from keeping this a 2 in appearance as it looked almost like a hefe with hazy hues and light colors. Not what an IPA shoudl look like. The aroma wasnít bad. A lot like an American IPA should, citrus, grapefruit, pine, floral. The flavor was good, but like I said seemed to lesen over the pint.

marksahara (79) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2006
On draught at Max Lagerís on P-tree. Nice light golden-amber appearance with virtually no crown and light lacing. Aroma is very prominent with citrus hops, moreso than the Imperial IPA they had on tap. Nice bitterness throughout and nice hoppy finish. Good subtle malt backbone provides a nice balance between the hops. Mildly carbonated and overall a very drinkable and enjoyable beer. It would be great with some white or common fish.

waolsen (1359) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2006
tap at ewery. top ten in atlanta isnít saying much if this is in it. straw color pour. hop and grapefruit. too much fruit. As I found with many of their beers the finish is too tart.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Draft......Very strong citrus-hop aroma, mostly grapefruit. Disappointed in the appearance, light orange, with absolutely no head or lacing, but had a . good taste and finish. Drank this outside in 80 degree weather, a perfect fit for a warm May evening.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2006
Pours a clear pale golden with a frothy, nicely-lacing white head. Earthy, lightly bitter hoppy aroma has some pale malt presence. Grainy semi-sweet flavor has some mild floral bitterness before a dry bittersweet finish. Doesnít have that big fresh hop presence and malty balance I like in IPAs.
