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.

Thanks Kramer. The beer pours a completely clear very orange copper color with a small head. Aroma is a very banal tea and citrus hops. Taste is actually like a very watered down version of that and ends up tasting like carbonated floral iced tea. Very light, almost feels like it is missing something. Maybe its the difference between the hoppy aroma and empty flavor, weird. Low bitterness and a watered down hops aftertaste. Very forgettable.
22oz bottle, Southampton shaker glass.

Courtesy boboski. Slightly cloudy yellow-amber with a thin, sparse soapy head. Light grassy hops, toasty malt aroma. Lightly carbonated. A bit light on the hops, but still gives a nice grassy flavors that compliments the malts. Tasty.

Thanks Bobo. Poured an absoltely crystalline amber color. Aroma is toasted malt and some citrus hoppiness. Flavor is a bit more forward than the aroma indicates. Great toasted malt flavor, there is a nice hoppy bitterness on the finish. Great with my steak.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle: Put of drinking this until after OSU decimated Penn State. Then we felt it was safe to crack open. Pours a clear amber color with a loose off white head. Aroma, citrus, pale malts, floral notes. Flavor, grapefruit, citrus notes, a juicy quality, pale malts, but finished thin and metallic.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a brassy orange color with small ivory head. The aroma is sweet bread, some grapefruit and orange, and a little bit of toast and mango. The flavor is mango and some dry toast, some grapefruit, and a grassy dryness in finish. A slight detergent note sneaks through once in a while, but all in all pretty good.

Pours a clear golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of faint citrus hops, wheat and nuts. Taste is dry yet slightly hoppy with a small citrus presence and a moldy feel. Not bad.

On tap at Medlar Field. Prickling through the long evening light grapefruit zest, woody husk and bright herbal spice alight. Fresh and alive with hops and clamoring malt structure. Pours in the golden hue of distant hills, bronzed with air pollution. Pillows of erupting cranberry tinted cream foam spill over the edges of the 20oz plastic cup. Tastes of the most pleasant English hops on earth, fresh and bubbly on the tongue. Spicy Fuggles dance with those longing bitter Goldings in a harmonic convergence of hop use. Delicious. The malt plays no quiet second fiddle, instead a moderate and enjoyable candied lemon peel, cane syrup and bread crust. Mellow, earthy, spicy and rounded. Drinkably dry, yet complex enough to sip. Finishes on herbal notes. Excellent.
