Your average beer without being your regular beer. Good flavor. Good to just drink at social functions. Not pretentious.

Bottle, thanks to my bro. Hazed gold, small cream. Ok hop profile and a sweeter malt backing. Solid.

Draft at The Flying Saucer, Nashville. Pale amber with a white head. Heavy lacing. Aroma of lemon, citrus, and caramel malt. Similar taste. Has a solid malty base. Okay.

Wolfenkopf (185) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2016
There’s not too much to the aroma, though it does seem crisp. The head is thready and white, thinning quickly, but not disappearing completely. The body is slightly foggy and flowery-yellow. The taste is the best thing about it. It’s reminiscent of Half Acres’ Daisy Cutter, though a bit more citrus in nature. Quite good. The palate is stung with carbonation, though not too much, and a thin oiliness is left behind. This would make a great session beer.

Bottle, low foam, no lacing to speak of. Good example of the style. Worthy if not exemplary.

rentonj7 (140) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2016
Nice orangey medium copper with haze and suspended particulates. Aroma of biscuit malts, slight pine, grass, and a little dank (just a touch of cat pee.) Refreshing mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Pretty light malt bill with some orange and hints of pepper on finish.

Ktwse (3403) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Pours clear amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of light honey, tropical fruit, hints of citrus. Taste is mild bitter with a light fruit backbone. Body is light and sticky with average carbonation.

Love the golden color though the finish leaves me wanting a little bit more. Finished just a touch flat ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

njnut (402) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Pours a hazy gold with tons of white head and lace. Aroma was grassy, light pine trees with some malt. Taste was grass, lemon, slightly spicey. I got more malt sweetness than others but there was a light pine hop presence. Pretty good, would love this in the summer.

BJCP CATEGORY 18B: AMERICAN PALE ALE

APPEARANCE: Slightly hazy gold hue; bubbly. Large white foam with good retention. 3/3

FLAVOR: Huge hop presence of grapefruit and grass. Very bitter, but kinda juicy. Moderate malt presence to give it some balance. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: A bit lighter in body than expected. Somewhat undercarbed. Creamy texture. Smooth. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Very tasty and interesting. Very hoppy for the style; This could pass for an IPA if needed. 8/10
