With a very complex blend of citric fruitness and floral overtones, this beer has a pleasing dry hop taste tht enhances its already stellar drinkability. A favorite among many whom appreciate the finer Pale Ales. Brewed at Sudwerk for ReaperAle.

This one pours a red-orange with a small white head. Aroma is light citrusy hops. The taste is more citrus but leaning towards orange moreso than grapefruit. The malt comes through as well and sweetens out whatever bitterness there was. Nicely balanced. Finish is bittersweet. Mouthfeel is a little thin but it does not diminish this beer. Good stuff!

Draught at The Liar’s Club - San Diego: Nice earthy grassy hops, ruby color. Nice balanced caramel malts on the finish. The flavor is balanced and chewy. Nice finish, a balanced delicate, earthy pale ale. I like a solid pale ale in the lineup.

Nice gush of foam upon opening - Not really nice i suppose, actually a little messy. Anyway, Surprisingly sweet aroma - More butterscotch and caramel than I expected, mixed in with plenty of grapefruity hops. Hops are more pronounced in the flavor, but still plenty of malty goodness. Nice, easy drinking APA. Thanks to fordest for the trade!

22 oz bottle. Pours a orange color. Aroma is hoppy, with citrus (mainly grapefruit), with caramel malts. Flavor is mellow hops, with a nice malt balance. A very easy to drink beer that has a nice alcohol percentage.

There is a nice hop bite throughout this beer. Nice Pale Ale. Very drinkable.Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 This is the first that I have tried a beer from this line. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bronze color with a huge tan head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with light spicy hops and definite grapefruit and pine elements. The flavor sadly does not live up to the promise of the appearance and aroma. The flavor is sour and nutty with dry floral and fruity hops. Far dryer than I had expected given the aroma. The mouthfeel was moderately thick.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange copper with a medium white head. Sweet malt aroma with a hop balance. Hop flavor up front, but very acidic. Some yeast character as well.

I found a bomber of this at Benz Beverage Depot in Cedar Rapids, IA. They also had some other different west coast brews. The beer poured with a medium copper body and a thick white colored head. The aroma was strong grapefruit with some caramel. There was also some toast and a little bit of flowers. The taste was caramel with some toasted almonds. There were also some grapefruit rinds. The soft mouthfeel made this very easy to drink. A very good APA.

Foamer bottle, orange with a cream head. Nose is stale, old hops, definitely not good.
