3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color with a tall, dense, beige head. Fairly light in scent, but mild caramel, grapefruit and slightly floral aromas. Woody malt and light citric notes. Fair balanced. Goldenrod notes in the finish and linger. Seems to have an english malt flair with an american buttress.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light hazy amber color with little white head. Aroma is light pine hops and some light caramel malt. Taste is much the same with some off-taste (diacetyl?) in the background. Not horrible, but definitely not good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy orange color with a light frothy white head. Aroma is very light, a little caramel malts and a bit piney hops. Taste is about the same. Some weird citrus in the background and medium bitterness. Balanced and highly-drinkable, but not very memorable.

On Tap at the Great Lakes Brewfest. Amber with no head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and fruit. Taste of citrus, caramel, floral hops and some sweet malt. Mild bitter after taste that citrusy and for some odd reason I taste noodles in here too.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma not as hoppy as the name would indicate, slight mix of grassy and citrus hop, flavor was interesting,an unusual mix of crystal and Munich malt,and a difinite indication of diacetyl,which in this case did not seem to ruin the flavor,different enough to be tried again,not ballsy enough to be memorable

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 On tap at Great Lakes Brew Fest. Pours a deep orange with a medium sized white head. Aroma is medium sweet, light citrus, biscuity and a very faint fruit. Butterscotch is also detected. Flavor is heavy butterscotch (diacetyl) which detracts from and overpowers the other flavors. Light to medium bodied, creamy thin texture. Finishes abrupt and bitter.

Not your typical pale ale is all i can say about this one. Aroma is earthy, floral- a decent orange colour with a medium sized white head. But taste is very unique. Enjoyable, but stretching it. grapefruit notes otherwise noticeably hoppy in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2011 Bottle via Skyview. The beer pours to a hazy amber body with a thin white head. The aroma is strongly crystal malts and a moderate Munich. Grainy cereal. The flavor is very cereal like and seems to taste like wort instead of a finished beer. Not many hops. Very average beer 6, 3, 4, 3, 11 = 2.7. 4/24/2008
So, this company has gotten a lot better IMO. I had some beers at a tasting last night and they’re stellar. Lots of hop aroma in this one met with a very nice clean pale ale flavor.
