Thanks to Badgerben for sharing. Pours a medium colored amber. Nice toffee and floral hops. Kinda waxy flavor with a light toffee flavor. Not very impressive.

This is a pleasant brew that is a good summer thirst-quencher. Starts somewhat tart.

Rated 7/30/07. Amber-gold color with a small, patchy white film that leaves behind minimal lacing. Very nice citrus and herbal hop aroma. I picked up mostly oranges and fresh cut grass. The hoppy flavors are the same, but a decent toffee malt background emerges as the beer warms. I wish the malts were more prominent, as that would balance things out quite nicely. Decent session brew, but nothing out of this world.

Thanks to Suttree for trading this to me. Pours a medium clean gold with a small white head. Good carbonation. Tiny bubbles shower to the top from start to finish. Aroma is quite hoppy with a nice mix of light malts and citrus. Flavor was very smooth. The malts seem to get kicked up a notch but there is still decent hop, mild citrus & floral flavors. The finish is refreshing with a light bitterness. Very good overall. Thanks again Phil.

Pours a clear golden yellow orange with a small white head. Aroma of faint floral hops with a hint of malt. Taste is slightly hoppy with a bit of a floral finish. Average Pale Ale.

12 oz. bottle from CaptainCougar. Pour is crystal clear yellow - golden with a head that starts medium, but goes away quickly. Aroma is hop floral aroma. Taste is very smooth, with a nice floral hoppiness. Nothing extraordinary, but very drinkable.

Pretty good, but a little fizzy and carbonated. Hoppiness is not balanced by a strong malt flavor. A very crisp and bitter finish. Light bodied and drinkable.

unusually hoppy for a pale ale, really this is a lesser ipa, with sweetwater ipa overwhelming with citrus sweetness. Not bad, i guess it’s nice to have local.
