Can. Pours a clear, medium copper color with a fluffy white head. Some lacing as the head settles. Nice aroma of malty caramel and fruity citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nice slight sweet start that has a building level of citrus rind bitterness. The dry hopping really shows in both the aroma and taste. Ends with a lingering bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Can. Pours bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is citric and clean, nice floral character, bright and hoppy, a touch grassy. Flavor is much the same, excellent bright citric character, not too over the top in bitterness, refreshing light and a touch spicy. Finishes grassy and clean. medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice beer

Can thanks to funkybrewster. Really nice pale ale. Very drinkable. Light and biscuity up front with some sharp clean citrus finishing with medium bitterness, very clean. Certainly one I could find myself knocking back all day and several of. Palate is light, but not too thin or watery, carbonation seems to play nice as well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This starts with a strong grapefruit hop aroma, surprisingly strong for a pale ale. Pours a clear light amber, with an ample white head. This beer truly showcases hops, with a big punch of citrus, fading to a mild bitter finish. There’s not much malt noticeable, just a touch of biscuit in the center. This is an outstanding Pale Ale, if you like hops.

Tap at Scottys on January 17, 2012. Clear golden pour with nice head and lacing. Aroma was citrus with some spice. Taste seemed to be opposite with more spice and less citrus. Fairly smooth, kinda creamy and thin bodied.

From can poured into Sam glass. Medium amber, moderate head with decent lacing. Thin mouthfeel. Citrus essence with a crisp flavor. Some residual bitterness but not unpleasant. Suggested by staff of a package store in downtown Indy. Wish I had opportunity to try more

Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours just shy of clear with a golden amber color and a creamy white head that never gets too large or distant. Nice grapefruit and apricot aroma mixed with a hint of pine and hints of bready malt somewhere in the mix. Taste is a nice mix of bready biscuity malt with plenty of earthy pine and citrus hop flavor to keep me interested. Medium to light body with a fairly dry finish, moderate level of carbonation and a resinous creamy watery mouthfeel. Nice pale ale with huge amounts of hop aroma. I wouldn’t mind a touch more body here, but I could also see myself cutting the lawn with one of these too.

Can. Pour is gold with a nice white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of grapefruit hops, bread, caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/citrus hops, bready malt. Palate is dry, soft, oily, with a nicely bitter finish. Drinks closer to an IPA, nicely dry and bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid pale ale. Hoppy, yet not excessively bitter. Very balanced, actually. Malt side has elements of bread, caramel and biscuits -- without being overly sweet. Hops are citrusy and slightly grassy with a fitting bite of bitterness. Great session beer.

Draught. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet floral hops, tropical fruits, citrus. Flavor is a nice balance of citrus hops, bitter hops, and bready malt. Great pale ale and so easy to drink. 8/4/8/4/14 (3.8/5)
