Poured copper color. Smelled like floral hops, also got some citrus/grapefruit. Naturally, it is quite bitter and left a bitter aftertaste. Quite a bit of carbonation and light body.

Citrus Grapefruit hops to begin and finishes bitter, sort of like the rind of that same grapefruit. Pale in color (as the name implies). Not the best ipa out there, but it will do.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small, frothy, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has notes on tangerine, peach, lychee. Taste is minimally biting hoppy, slightly metallic, a grainy touch, unspecific fruity undertones. Too mainstreamed and "filtered" in the literal sense IMO.

Bottle to pint. Looks decent; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells alright, but definitely malt-forward for an IPA. Tastes like it smells, but thin and unbalanced, with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Nope.

Used to love picking up the 12 beers of Christmas at Peter’s and icing this one down right away. Tastes slightly better than the pale ale. Brings back some great memories.

pours a semi-cloudy amber-orange with a very small off-white head, and some lacing.
smell is faint, hops, floral, caramel, and roasted malt.
taste is a bit watery, hoppy, some citrus, some caramel, and a little malt in the back. ends a little bitter. not as bitter as i would expect from an IPA.

Thin and watery. Almost no aroma to speak of. Taste had no complexity, just straight pine. Disappointing.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 Draught at Antenna America. Malty nose, ok but not much going on. Light citrus and sweet. Dark gold with a fine head. Sweet flavor of oranges and metal. Typical but not distinctive. Passable.

Bottle. Copper pour. Grapefruit, pine, caramel, light but bitter finish. Not a bad IPA.
