Draft. Clear golden color with some lasting head retention. Aroma is bright citrus (lemons, grapefruit) with some good biscuit notes. You can tell how hop forward this is just from the nose, nice!

Flavor starts with citrus followed by a biscuit, toasted grain body. The finish has grassy and a light pine needle flavors. Really crisp mouthfeel. The beer has plenty of malt to provide balance. For such a widely distributed brew this is nice work, highly drinkable and refreshing during the warm summer months. Another nice job from this brewer.

AWISLguy (1170) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from Steveís in Fitchburg. Pours a pale yellowish-orange with a spongey white head leaving a lot of coating of lace. Aroma has light citrus and fruits. Some bready malts. Very light. Taste is of light sweet fruits, some lemon, some breadiness. Very little malt presence, and very light overall. Finishes more sweet than bitter and quite light. Nothing bad, just not much presence of anything there either. 13.4

On tap at friendís house. Pours a clear golden collor with medium white head. Aroma is hop forward with citrus in the front of grapefruit, lemon, and a bit of orange and I got some mango background. Taste followed the nose and this is a very good beer. I honestly feel like itís a lighter version of Zombie Dust. I know most wonít agree with me, but thatís what it reminds me off just lighter and not as in your face with the hops.

rand (1270) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle 355 ml from Bier-Bienne (CH). Golden with a compact white head, laces. Perfume all in citrus on a malted base a little muffled. In the mouth, itís more balanced, the malt has tones bready, there is candi, the hop is very fruity, orange-pineapple, citrus, resin, varnish, hay. Dry and typified.

drsandman (209) - New York, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle @ home. Pours a golden orange with med white head, large bubbles. Aroma is melon, bready malt, citrus, lemon zest. Pretty sweet for a lightish APA, bitter pithy grapefruit and citrus throughout. Gummy bear & melon in the finish along with some bitter hops. Some hints of belgian(y) yeast too. Quite carbonated.

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2014
A pretty usual pale ale with a bit more body due to the yeast and bottle conditioning. It had a somewhat flatter body which was actually pretty nice. It smoothed everything out.

backdaft (201) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Pour is a clear gold. Small sudsy white foam head. It has that very familiar orange, citrus, hop aroma. Taste is nice with some lemon zest & pale malts making their presence as well. Crisp, clean & not overly bitter. Nice APA
