doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2008
16oz can to imperial pint glass. Pours cloudy amber with a moderate sized white head, some lace. Smells mellow citrusy, slightly bitter, slightly sweet. Tastes malty sweet and caramelly up front with a slow building and lingering hop bitterness. Very nice flavors, solid pale ale, nice hops. Medium body, good carbonation.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Pours a dark copper-amber color with a frothy, well retained, cream colored head. Thick, solid rings of lacing circle the glass. Aromas are heavy on caramel, toffee, and toasty malts, along with a potent grapefruit and orange hop billing. Flavors show excellent balance, with the big, caramelly malts being countered by substantial citrus hop notes. Very creamy. Medium-full bodied, moderately carbonated, and incredibly smooth. Finishes with lingering citrus hops. Very, very similar to its canned brethren, Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale. Nice beer.

pepsican (1451) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2008
cans! I like them. Pour amber with a nice white head. Aroma is strong grapefruit and just a bit of sugar. Similar flavor, some earth and rind in there as well. fInishes a little sour, bitter. Kind of reminds me of boxed grapefruit juice, but I like it.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 29, 2008
Sample @ Flying Saucer Draught Emporium (Houston). Mild sweet malt and floral aroma. Amber body with white head. Flavor of a citrus sticky candy sucker. Also some flavor of cough syrup. Thicker malt blended body with mediun sweetener. Good beer different than most APA’s I’ve had lately.

16oz can, courtesy of CaptainCougar. Thanks, Tom! Pours a clear, bright orange-amber color; off-white head with medium-bubbled lacing. Solid earthiness and citrus bitterness in the aroma; dry, bitter pale ale with a light candy sugar core. Medium mouthfeel: lots of earthy and citrus bitterness; soft edges; lively carbonation; some floral notes and candy sugar present as well; quite drinkable. Medium finish: lingering earthy bitterness, minerals, and candy sugar; dry throughout.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2008
Can. Pours a clear copper-red with an intense white head that is frothy and long-lasting. Nose is fresh pine needles until the head begins to subside, letting forth some more citrus-hop aromas and a candy-like sweetness. Full-flavored hop profile, lots of pine and citrus rind, with mild bitterness, caramel, and a light woodsiness. Sharp palate, smooths out towards the end. A really nicely put together pale ale.
