3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the can. Clear amber with a light, wispy, white head. No lace. Nose is very lithgt citrusy hops, grapefruit, light lemons and very faint caramel malts. Nose seems completely clean and absent of esters and complexity. Flavor is dry and again medium light hop character and little to no malt character. Bitter crisp finish. Seems true to style.

Had this at Sun King and also picked up a growler. Hoppy/ yeasty aroma. Amber pour with a malty sweet taste and hoppy finish. Definitely a stronger and more flavorful pale ale.

Had this at the brewery and also in a tall boy can. Pours a nice copper orange color. Aroma of citrus, hops, and pine. Really nice pale ale, smooth and refreshing.

Pours clear and bright. Nice head. Not a strong nose. Good citrus hoppiness for a pale ale. A good lawnmower beer!

Tall boy can from sherm1016...thanks. Pours a rich, hazy orange....but doesn’t quite live up to its hype from there....some hops but not really a ’punch’....a pleasant beer for a spring evening....

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one from a tallboy can, I was responsible and didn’t rate the samples from the brewery. Huge hoppy nose, piny with citrus and especially grapefruit, resin heading toward soapiness. Bright coppery orange body with steady carbonation and a frothy beige head. Light body closer to IPA-level bitterness, really cleanses the palate and leaves a bready residue, though it’s pushing close to that threshhold for resiny astringency. Just bone dry. A good, potentially great summer beer, dry hopping has done wonders and it has that perfect hamburger and hot dog pairing potential.

Can from Stfun. Poured a golden color with medium nice head. Aroma was grassy and citrus. Taste was much more bitter than i was expecting which was a plus in my book. Pretty solid pale ale.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pint in a can provided by Sean, drank from a perfect pint glass... The beer pours a light watery copper with orange notes, looks ok but light. The head is off white watery, but good retention and lacing... The aroma is really nice, great fresh citrus notes, a hint of caramel then a perfect amount of hops. Just great... The taste is equally as nice, an easy to drink flavorful pale ale. Would love to get this and crush it 4 can packs of daisy cutter.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 Poured from growler a coppery, very clear color with a white head and lots of lacing from an aggressive pour. Aroma of citrus but not real strong. Light body with some bitterness and I can taste the hoppiness, but again, not real strong. Beer is a little thin with some bitterness. Thing is, I kinda like the taste and I think this would be a good beer to drink all day long by the pool, as I did today, minus the pool.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. Can - Pours golden orange/yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is spicy/citrusy hops. Taste is slightly malty, a bit bready and ends with spicy/bitter hops. Not spectacular, but decently hoppy and quite drinkable.
