COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American pale ale brewed with Centennial hops and hopbacked with Cascade, it's a real refresher that has a spicy, citrus aroma and a slightly nutty malt flavor.

MrBunn (2528) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bomber. Pours a coppery amber with a frothy finger of head. Aromas are decent, but a little subtle... grass and citrus provide some edginess, but not much else is going on. Similarly, flavor is a bit washed out... even more so than the nose. There is a little bit of caramel and apple juice in terms of malt and a little edge of citrus hops to the finish, but this is pretty plain.

On draft at Otto’s. Aroma of citrus, grassy notes, hops, and pine. Nice clear dark orange colour. Tastes of hops and citrus. Good for a pale ale.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Draft at Otts. Pours a redish amber with a small white head. Has a good aroma of pine and light citrus hops. The taste is good. Crisp and refreshing but not too hoppy. Very good carbination and mouthfeel. A nice finish. This was a well blended beer. A light body. Went great with the food. I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Pours a golden body with a light white head. Sweet citrus vapors, a light spiciness, a bit bready with nutty notes. Good esp for a PA.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Orange color with a bright aroma of citrus hops and some mild malt. Flavor is dominated by citrusy "C" hops that contribute a nice sweetness with malt that doesn;t overwhelm. Best new APA I’ve had in awhile.

CapnJazz (52) - Binghamton, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2008
22 oz bottle from the brewery. Assertive hop presence, nice pine aromas coming through. Not as bold as the DD. Flavor is not really an explosion of hops but is nicely balanced and refreshing. Malts are pretty pronounced in this one, giving it that balance from the hops.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops, caramel and toasted malts, as well as some pine. Poured amber in color with a small, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tasted of citrus, hops, caramel malts, pine, grapefruit, and some pine. Medium body. Smooth and well balanced with a slick texture. Average carbonation. Malty, sweet, hop finish.

Sammy (9280) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2008
Decent American style pale, brought back the bottle from the brewpub. C-hop aroma and in taste. A bit drying and a cut under average mouthfeel. Some orangey taste. Most drinkable.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle (22oz). via trade with sirpsycho. Found this little beauty in the fridge - I love surprises! Poured very cloudy deep amber with an average lasting foamy light tan head. Lush aroma - very full bodied; caramel cereal malt and pungent soft floral bitterness, some pine duff and cedar. The taste - follows right on - very cereal-malty, dryer than I expected, just the right pine/floral bitterness to balance the citrus juicy malt .... fairly thick-bodied, delicately astringent, lightly carbonated, the bitterness and fruity/citrus malt fade off the palate at the same (moderate) pace and leave a dry, slightly floral aftertaste. Wow, this was pretty solid, considering I traded for it about 10 months ago!!!

hopdog (9580) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2008
On tap at Capones. Poured a deeper golden color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of floral green hops, pine, and citrus. Nice and hoppy and on the aromas alone, I would have pegged this as an IPA. Tastes of citrus, floral, and light caramel. A very nice surprise.
