This is a very nice, above average pale ale. Heavy on the hops, especially those that give it a pleasant pine flavor. Slightly astringent aftertaste.

Draft at Big Lick Tropical Grill: No aroma (smoky bar, frosted mug!). Crystal clear aubuurn, thin head. Weak macroish flavorlessness, mild honey malt notes initially, but finishes a with a pleasant grassy bitterness. Low end craft. Alcohol not noticeable.

Currently drinking whilst typing. Aroma is of sweet caramel malts and floral, citrusy hops, slight honey too. Appears as a clear copper vessel with a fluffy off white head which has a solid retention. Taste is gentle yet flavoursome, with floral, bright and refreshing hops which combine perfectly with the caramel maltiness creating (for me) a perfect pale ale flavour; Suitable bitterness and clean finish too. Smooth and silky on the palate with medium body and a perfect carbonation. Overall; 'tis an outstanding pale ale with a session beer quality that for me makes this beer absolutely priceless. Fantastic stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. The best looking pale ale that I have ever enjoyed. A wonderful orange/copper color with a wonderful creamy, foamy head. I noted some caramel and light fruitiness, some grapefruit -piney hoppyness. The Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light fruitiness, Not quite as good as Dale’s Pale Ale, but just a half a step behind. I could drink this by the case.

Dull orange, hazy, thin white head; attractive tropical aroma of melon, peach; taste is orangey fruit, spice, bitterness, which descends into a short, somewhat harsh finish; an unremarkable pale ale.
