Can - Acquired in a trade with lb4lb. Cheers! Pours amber and cloudy. Fluffy head rises quickly. Nose is lots of pine and citrus. Almost candy like citrus. Mouthfeel is full slightly creamy. Flavor is overly bready with little citrus or hops showing at all. Slighly thin with very little finish. Not bad, but far from transcendent.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 23, 2009
Thanks to weebeillin. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of floral and light citrus notes, tobacco and caramel malt. Flavor of caramel malt, nuts and toffe. Citrusy hop notes and a touch of hop bitterness. I think this beer was getting a bit old.

tpseabird (29) - Dickinson, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours a clear gold. Aroma is light, but has a light apricot note. Light body, average carbonation, and light bitter finish. Not a Pale Ale favorite, but worth another drink.

Beerman6686 (4302) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2011
This poured a amber color with a white head. Aroma was light stale grassy citrsuy hops with a good bit or caramel malt. Flavor was very disappointing considering what i had heard about this brew. Light hops, but not even very noticable at all, mainlt dominated by 2 row and caramel malt. Not good.

hbmason (1087) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2011
16 ounce can. Amber color with a white head. Very bitter for a pale ale. Not much to start and ends up bitter.

GT2 (8372) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 16, 2011
16oz can thanks to blutt59. Pours a full hazy blood orange...looks deep murky brownish. Big yellow head with big bubbles. Nice sheen, rockiness. Spotty, suddy lace. Nose is flowers, orange blossom, caramel, maple. Taste is a bit soapy, mild caramel, fairly bland though but no off flavors. Decent richness. More like an amber ale. No really hop forward. Wrong SRM.

rubbishystuff (1830) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2012
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

16oz in weizen glass. Cloudy amber with thick, rocky head. Abundant lacing. Pleasant floral aroma, hints of chocolate and pine. Flavor is totally schizophrenic - dry, resinous, roasty, light caramel, and this totally weird artificial-fruitiness all fight it out. Bizarre and disappointing on a bad day, I guess, novel and inspired on a good one. Burps taste more like that nice aroma.
