Tasted 5/13/08. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Clinging off-white head. Caramel bready aromas. Touch orange and grassy hops. Medium bodied and nutty. Tangy and tart. Dry rye bitterness. Solid pale ale style. Caramel and slight fudgy note. Woody earthy hops. Good balance and palate.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Caramlly orange color with creamy ivory he3ad, mild lacing. Lemony citrus hop aroma. Flavor is mildly bitter, citrussy, medium graininess throws it off a bit. Finishes somewhat plasticy for me.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Aroma was very malty/grainy with some sweet fruity notes. Deep orange in color. Nice smooth wheat flavor in the start and some hop bitterness comes through in the finish of this medium bodied pale ale. Like Peakís otherís, surprisingly good, but not the best.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Pours golden with a fluffy off-white sudsy head. Sweet grainy aroma. Flavor is artificial sweet malts with medium bitterness, quite grainy. Average palate, medium light with sparkly corse carbonation. Has flavor, however it is not a very coherent brew.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Amber color with a moderate, fairly lasting light khaki colored Head. Interesting aromas of light grapefruit, caraway and rye. Iím suddenly wanting tar-tar. Hints of peat float in and out. Sweet husky malt and a bit of citric zest. This has more light brown flavors than any APA that I can remember. Really not much that I am embracing in this one.

mephisto (1285) - TAIWAN - APR 28, 2008
a smooth brew that is not nearly as overpowering as the usual apa. the appearance is amber hued with a large beige head. mildly sweet aroma with just a hint of citrus and a bit caramelly. the flavor is fruity and properly hoppy; it finishes slightly bitter.

Pretty great ale. Light orange in color. Beautiful head. Nice amount of hops. Good bitter finish. From a sampler pack and enjoyed in a friendís backyard on a cool but sunny day.

jason (1819) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle. Poured a hazy orange body with thin head. aroma is malt, vegatable. Flavor is light citrus, sweet malt and an orange candy taste. Really nice mouthfeel and a pleasure to drink on a hot day. Quite impressive...

I remain unimpressed with the organically-produced beers Iíve rated. This "pale ale" was more reminiscent of a witbier to me than a hoppy-styled beer. This beer poured a slightly hazy orange color, with a Sprite-like head that faded to a puffy cloud-like head after a few minutes. Aroma was really strange for a pale ale - I got a lot of coriander and (not very pale ale-like) citrus-ness. In other words, its aroma was very much like a witbier rather than a pale ale. Flavor was similarly confusing - a bit hoppy but with some other witbier - like flavors. Mouthfeel was unremarkable. I canít say Iíd recommend this beer. I bought it as a single-serve bottle at Woodmanís in Oak Creek, WI.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2008
Bottle - Poured a dark golden amber in color with a slightly foamy white head. Some nice lacing. Aroma is a nicely balanced mix of malts and floral hops. Flavor is medium hoppy with a mild amount of bitterness. A just OK pale ale, but easy drinking...
