12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a booming billowing off white head. Uh oh. Not a good start to this rate. The aroma offers up lemon and lime tartness as well as sweeter citrus and malty notes. It doesn’t taste as messed up as it looks. I get bitter grapefruit and lemon citrus flowing quickly into malt sweetened tangelo. Amid the bitter citrus it gets a tad juicy even just as the pale ale almost biscuit maltiness bubbles to the surface. This is pretty nice even in poor shape as this is.

Served in bottle. Nose with a lot of citrus, taste a hoppy with flowery notes. Surprised by the fruity flavour. Long bitter finish. Very IPA like. Average carbonation, medium body.

ben4321 (4097) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 3/3/14, as Doc’s Pale Ale

Aroma: The aroma is mild but solid, some citrus, pine, and floral hop notes
Appearance: The pour is a clear orange-gold color with a small head and good lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, light sweet, with a clean medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, clean and drinkable, with a nice, dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a solid, enjoyable, balanced example of the style. Not a standout, just a nice beer. Certainly worth trying.

Bottle from AJ’s Fine Foods Scottsdale. Pours golden with a very thin white head. not much on the nose. kind of grassy sweet on the tongue. Not getting much bitterness or interesting hop flavor. It’s kind of flaccid and limp.

Livendadream (129) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Blt pours clear light amber color with some small particles. Thick off white head that lingers. Lots if lacing. Smells of candy, pine and citrus. Tastes of sweet caramel but not to sweet and bitter citrus hops Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation and dry finish. Well balanced beer with a clean smooth taste. I feel this is oak creeks best beer i have had yet.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden body under a dense off-white head. Pine cones and citrus on the nose, malty hints too. A bit thin on the palate, smooth and semi-dry, with a good bitterness. Pine cones, citrus peel and oranges in the flavor. Long bitter finish. A very decent pale ale. 130818
