BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2009
Enjoyed this one much more than the bottled version; more balanced and less hop bitterness. 24 karat pour with a solid 1-inch foam. Aroma is citrus, spruce, and caramel. The orange zest and grapefruit seems to be offset by a nice honey sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and good carbonation.

Tap@Soho. Golden color, thick head and high carbonation. Aroma has grape, grass and some caramel. Flavors of grape and caramel. Taste is first a bit sweet but it ends with a long bitter aftertaste. Well balanced.

tomer (1697) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Draught, small stable creamy bubbly head, hazy palish orange colour, aroma of lemon grass, orange marmalade and lemon, flavour of citrus, peach and apricot with a malty backbone, noticable but not too strong mellow bitterness. A worthy classic brew.

Transfer from BA review on 12-6-12- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a golden-amber color with a thick one finger white head. The head has a great level of retention, fading slowly over time to give a Smell – The aroma is light overall. It consists of a light caramel and bready smell mixed with a small amount of citrus. Taste – The taste begins with a bready taste with a small amount of caramel sweetness upfront. As the taste advances the bready taste remain with the sweetness fading some. While the sweetness lessens, the bitterness increases as some flavors of a citrus grapefruit hop flavor come to the taste. In the end a slightly bitter, but very smooth bready and hop flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess as well as in terms of carbonation. Both suit the style rather appropriately as they make for a very easy drinking brew. Overall – A tasty and balanced pale ale. A good easy drinker.

Keg at the brewers house
Mid amber full bodied, moderate carbonation, subtle grapefruit aroma, caramel malt and bitterness at first become more obviously hoppy (pine forests) on warming. Fresh and herbal and very easy drinking.

Such a beautifully made pale ale. It’s lightly bitter, juicy citrus, very clean. Flavor is not over the top, somewhat balanced. Overall, a great beer.

On tap at Capones Hayden. Pours clear old gold with a thick cream-colored head with great retention and lace. Aroma is pine, pineapple. Taste is bittersweet, grainy. Medium bodied, somewhat low carbonation. Nice beer. I need to compare it to the bottle now.
