Strong citrus notes in the aroma with a hint of grapefruit dominating the initial nose. Medium body with decent color. Would prefer more hops in this style. Very nice name!

Not too bad. I liked it. Overall it was decent but from others who talked it up I expected more. I was tipsy by the time I had it but it was really just so so.

On cask at Rubicon. I’ve had this before, just never rated... Nice head with lots of lacing. Aroma is really orangey like its got lots of citrus hops. Very low Carbonation, not really all that bitter, but it is a pale ale. This is a really good beer I order when I know its on tap somewhere...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours golden with an off white head. The aroma is fruity with a hint of malt and citrusy hops. The flavor is pretty dry and hoppy with hints of tropical fruit and pine. Very clean in the finish. Nice, but not very exciting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 ounce sample at the brewpub on cask. Aroma has plenty of nice hops--pine and grapefruity Cascades. Lightly floral, too and somewhat sweet. Nicely aromatic. Mildly hazy golden-copper body with a creamy, whitish head. Starts a bit metallic before the piney "C" hops come through. A little astringent. Has some biscuity malts with mild underlying toastiness in the middle. Finishes with moderate bitterness with more metallic notes and a light spiciness.
