Clear light amber pour with a white head. Floral hop nose with a light orange peel note. Some sweet bready malt and a hint of toast, maybe a little bit of toffee. The hop profile on the palate is a bit grassy, but still good floral and citrus peel notes. A nice bready malt sweetness, too.

On tap at the Olive location. Since I was on day four of a motorcycle trip, the name caught my eye. I had high hopes. Medium malt, Light, simple bitter hops. Nothing distinctive. Forgetable. On the other hand I was very impressed with their chalkboard special, Big Horn Red IPA .

Draft at brewery. Pours a hazy brass with no head. Aroma of floral hops and some malt. Flavor is hops all the way through with some citrus. Very bitter finish.

hopdog (8824) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with odeed (thanks!). Poured a deeper and clear golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of earthiness, some grains, and floral. Tastes of caramel, citrus (oranges), and floral.

fiver29 (1026) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Irishboy. Pours a slight hazy amber color with a thin white head. Has a nice nose to it with some slightly spicy floral hops. Mouthfeel is light. Tastes like a rough around the edges pale ale with some rough caramel malt blending with some hops that donít seem to be in the right proportion. Overall a nice brew.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 31, 2007
From IrishBoy via trade. Thanks! The pour was clear and light copper with a thin white head that didnít sustain and failed to produce much more than a spot or two of lacing. The aroma was light, sweet malt with some floral hops. The flavor followed suit with the floral, somewhat earthy hops leading the charge as the malt and pine struggled to gain a foothold. The mouthfeel was forgettable but overall it was a drinkable diversion.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Aroma was mostly malt. Sweet caramel. Poured gold more or less. Flavor was sweet and malty with mild hop bite on the finish. This one was definitley a malt heavy APA. I did not get the hops that the previous rater is talking about. Rather light and boring. Not dry or resiny. Nonetheless, a rather average beer. Nothing distinguishes it as special, but nothing distinguishes it as bad.
