tap at the brewery - Pours hazy copper with an off-white, lacing head. The aroma has some citrus hops. The flavor has good hops intensity with slight citrus undertones. Iím looking for a bit more malt profile to complement it though.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear gold with a thin white head. Weird perfumy aroma with some floral hops and some sweet malty toffee/caramel undertones. Flavor was the same with some sweet caramel/toffee tones with some nice moderate bitterness and a lovely citric/floral hop flavor. Pretty nice.

Surprised by the so so reviews. Thought this was awesome. Super clean happy dry apa. Reminded me of daisy cutter. Refreshing. Sessionable. Great juicy citrus and floral hop character with a pleasant touch of sweet toasted caramel malt backing. Great.

16 oz can purchased at Keg Liquors in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is orange copper, lightly hazed, with a somewhat off white head. The aroma is lemon bitter hops, a bit grassy, along with a toasted bread maltiness. The taste has a nice balance between the resin orange citrus hops and the bready malt. The palate is medium bodied, soft natural carbonation, and a dry bitter mineral finish. Solid Pale Ale.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a moderate pillowy white head. Nose is actually quite hoppy - there are some nice floral elements to it that really come through. Taste isnít too bitter, but has a nice hoppy floral taste to it. Very easy drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I wasnít sure what to expect but since the price was only $3.50 for a pint the risk was minimal. The reward was a solid and flavorful pale ale. Not quite heavy enough to wear down the palate it still had enough depth to keep from being a boring one trick pony. Oh, and it also comes in relatively inexpensive cans if that is your thing.
Aroma / Appearance - The rosy red body glowed with warmth like a dim fire. A pillowy white head remained after a few minutes. Beneath was the smell of cedar, polished bronze, caramel, and dashes of honey. The warm bitterness glues everything together like strands of tree sap.
Flavor / Palate - Light and easy going, the first impression is of oranges and lemons. The transition towards a woody finish brings the hops into focus clearly. Over time it becomes a little predictable. However it is still good enough to keep a four pack around for hot summer afternoons. If you are in central Indiana check it out and support a local brewery.
