3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 (On tap) I think this beer has changed since it was first released, and I like it now better than it did the first time I tasted it. The first time it was bland overall, especially for an American Pale Ale. Subsequent times though, I’ve found it to be extremely fruity, not very bitter up front, but with an almost overpowering aftertaste. It’s not exactly a balanced beer, but I like it.

Aroma was nicely hoppy but had plenty of malt in the backround. poured amber in color with white head. flavor was really nice... hoppy but well balanced with a great biscuity note in the backround. medium bodied. Really nice.

Sampled @ Tucson Tasteing. Good frutiy aroma on the nose. Golden body color with decent head. Good mix of malty sweetener and some hop bitter. Good refreshing palate cleanser.

A blond ambition light style lager. It is stronger than Harp and has a longer lasting palate. It is sweet on the taste buds but too low in percent (6.5%) for me to give it a higher rating.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
wow... bonus points for the creepy story. thanks to machfive55 for the bottle. pours a slightly hazed pale copper color with a small whitish head and spots of nonuniform lace. the aroma is heavy on fruity hops... orange/grapefruit/citrus mixes with caramel maltiness, earth, grass and brown sugar. the flavor follows the aroma... candied citrus, caramel, crystal malts? and a spicy hoppy finish. the body is not medium but it is not quite full. creamy texture from the carbonation. solid...

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2008 12 oz. bottle. Poured clear amber with poor head retention. Enjoyable citrus hop bite without an overwhelmingly bitter finish. This would make for a spectacular session beer. Solid effort for an aspiring brewer.

I really enjoyed this beer it is not an over the top IPA. Very balanced with a nice hoppiness that compliments the malt profile. Excellent color and carbonation.
I tried this on tap at the brewery and also had it in bottles. Both were excellent.

(USA) From a Devonshire tasting !! Hazy orange color with a thin white head. Nice hoppy aroma with slight pine needle / grapefruit taste. It was on the mild side for a pale ale. But other then that it was pretty good stuff. Oh, And the story was creepy.!!! LOL

On tap at Trio’s in Silver Springs PA- Poured a gold amber with white head. Aroma of hops, Hops in front no question though not over the top. Found this to be very well blended with Hops, bread malts and a little hop kick that made me feel a little giddy - no shit! Went well with my surf and turf burger, dry finish. A great craft beer, looking forward to more from these guys.
