2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a light note of diacetyl.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Very little aroma, which includes some butter. Pretty thin, watery, and stark in the mouth...almost seems diluted. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it flavorless, as there is ample bitterness, but yeah...it’s surprisingly weak.

10/24/10. 16oz can. Clear golden color that hints at orange - pretty light - with a small fluffy off-white head that lasts and laces a bit. Really nice fresh hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and definitely pine - quite nice. Smooth but light flavor that is a little thin but does pack a bitter punch and some nice hop character as well.

Can thanks to Sixthglass. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thick white head. A sweet biscuit nose with abundant pine and citrus hops. The flavor is a super smooth Pale with lemon zest, oranges, light bitterness, smooth biscuit balances it out. Some lingering bitterness. Nice. Akin to Daisy Cutter. I expect some high ratings of this brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a nice darker muted golden hue, small whitish head that dies to a film that clings to the edges. A faint haze. Aromas are freshcut grass and floral hops, a touch stinky, almost dank, with crisp pale malts providing a light malty sweetness. Initial is heavier side of light bodied, clean with some decent floral and soapy hop character. Fresh cut grass mingling with bready pale malts, finish leaves a lingering floral and soapy bitterness on the palate. A very drinkable pale ale that is fairly clean, does the job. However, it does lack the flourish that many American brewers are putting on their APAs nowadays to distinguish them.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of pale malt and C hops. Not all that original and interesting, but it smells nice and pleasant. Pours off golden, not much in the way of head or lace. Flavors of pale malts, a touch of grain and bread, and floral, citrus and earthy hops with a slight spiciness in the finish. Easy enough to drink, well done. Its and APA.
