eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2013
12oz. Pours lighter golden with a nice foamy white head. Aromas of light citrus rind, grass, and some floral notes. This is very light bodied and drinks very easy. Light hop presence with light grapfruit, grass, and some herbal notes. Decent at best but nothing to write home about....

ordybill (303) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Had a mix of hops and citrus, pretty good smelling. Appearance- A clear yellow/orange with a small whitehead. Taste- Has that citrus note mixed with hops, and a small biscuit flavor tossed in. Palate- A light to medium bodied brew with medium carbonation. Overall- A good beer, I enjoyed it and would drink it again.

radio_nowhere (958) - Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Draft at Hard Times Cafe in Frederick, MD. Served in a pint glass, ambery-golden color with white head. Aroma of light citrus hops and some bready malt sweetness. Taste adds some pine/herbal notes and some grassy bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, dry with light citrus/pine bitter finish. Nice enough sessionable pale.

skmikeg (1075) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours golden amber with a one finger head with a little lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, herbal and grassy hops, and some light bready hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium finish. Overall, a decent APA that is drinkable for the style.

reberiii (385) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
From can which immediately leaked all over my kitchen. Nicely aromatic, smooth, but an odd ish finish. Maybe it’s heavy pine?

Itzjerm (1450) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2014
An average session beer. Definitely a pale ale with a very light hop bite. Good mouthfeel for abv and little to no head.

EithCubes (5137) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle PKG ON 07/21/14. Nose is strongly citrussy with just-as-heavy pine, lighter spice, medium-strong caramel and a little earth. Pours very, very pale yellow nearing clear with abundant carbonation and a rocky right white head. Taste medium-strong bitter and very soapy, light but lasting resin, good citrus still up the middle, body is watery but cleansing, some of the pine and caramel intensity has been robbed. Off-dry, crisp but somewhat smooth, juicy texture. Solid.

Paincane (170) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Golden body with a frothy white head & nice lace. Citrusy and floral nose. Fruit, malt backbone and pine flavors end moderately hoppy.
