A good pale ale, with plenty of flavor. Golden, clear with moderate carbonation. Aroma is not too strong, taste is full and complex for a pale and a good finish.

Petkus331 (213) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2010
This pale ale is more like an IPA, I was pleasantly surprised when I was expecting a simple pale ale and got this "gentle" IPA. It could be more bitter, but the nose was very nice with a hoppy, very floral, and lightly citrus scent. The beer was of a light bitterness, iím guessing 40-60 IBUs, which was lightened by the sweet floral nose. The flavor was mostly hoppy with a citrus hint. this was a tasty beer, but take my rating with a grain of salt, Iím a lover of Imperial/Double IPAs. This beer was more of an IPA than many beers that pretend to be an IPA.

I agree with other raters who say this beer seems more like an IPA than a pale ale; a bit hoppier for a pale ale, Iíd say. Nonetheless, good beer, nice long lasting head, good color, GREAT nose. Happily surprised by this brew.

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber gold with white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma is a bit malty with sweet grain and a nice citrus undertone. Flavor is sweet with malts and light citrus and a bit of spice. Pretty basic overall.
