rubbishystuff (2215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2015 Hazy dark orange look. Big piney hop aroma and flavor. A little herbalness to the hops too. Slightly burn caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel strange at end of sip. Sort of all over the place both a bold hoppy pale ale but also flavors that are all over the place. Serving: Can

Leighton (17469) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Can in LA - picked up in NOLA. Pours unclear orange-gold with a creamy head. The nose holds crackery malts, light pine, ripe orange. Medium sweet flavour with more crackers, white grape, graham cracker, pale grains, bread, melon, orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. More faded hops in the finish, some grass and pine, lots more crackery charter, ripe and jammy citrus. Definitely faded.

malvrich (191) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2016
Undated 12 oz. can into a tulip. A: Deep orange pour with a short, fading head of fine bubbles. Looks hazy and thick. S: Mildly sweet pine/spruce scent with orange and honey notes. T: Bitter orange and pine suggesting English ales. Malty and a bit roasty but not exactly sweet. Well balanced flavor. M: Medium heavy body with average level of carbonation fighting through. O: Pretty good though a bit stronger than I prefer in a go-to pale. Worth having.

Pours a hazy copper color with a medium sized white head that left some good lacing around the glass. The aroma is hops, some breadiness, and mild pine with possibly some caramel as well. The taste is bready up front then hops kick in with the pine flavor as well. The after taste is pine needles.

Odd the first can was fine, but the last three have all been gushers. At least this last one I was ready with it held over the waste basket. Murky dark amber color. Of course a taller head, but it diminishes rather quickly and leave a ring and fairly dense island of foam in the surface and a nice lace trail. Quite sweet in aroma, with brown sugar, caramelized sugar, toasted malt; citric hops that remind me of oranges placed on the grill, and some aromatic woods. Some interesting things, but not overly enticing. Sweet caramel, toasted marshmallows and grains in the flavors. Light citrus courses throughout. Light brown sugar and lightly toasted malt return in the finish and linger. This one is better if you don’t think about it too much. 2/10

slightly cloudy amber color;a very light pale ale; bready, semi-sweet malt aroma with mild piney hops; light toasted malt with bitter, piney hops, but not a lot of character; rather bland

Best looking beer I’ve had in weeks and pretty damn tasty, too. Tastes like caramel apples in an evergreen forest. More like caramel pine cones, maybe. Caramel bitter orange?

Cloudy Amber pour with a white head that lingers nicely. Caramel malt and piney hops abound on the aroma. The taste is a perfect balance of malt and hop. Bitter bite on the finish, very good pale.

Draft. Pretty clear amber color, medium white head. Nice aroma of mixed citrus and pine forest. Taste is juicy citrus, stick pine. Very tasty.

stxoil (30) - Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Hoppy and piney aroma. Pours a nice amber with decent head. Smooth drinking, medium-bodied pale ale. Hoppy taste, but balanced by malts and not too bitter on the finish. A very nice pale ale.
