Bottle. Smells fruity and a little woody. Pours translucent golden with a thin off white head. Taste follows the more grassy, woody part of the smell but is very mild and agreeable. Overall I find this pale ale very enjoyable, although I expected a little more complexity on the palate.

A good go to pale ale. I always end up with this at mellow mushroom. Pairs great with pizza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gription79 (2614) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to homer321. There is a firm caramel malt aroma, a nice citrus and pine hop nose. The flavor is malty with a balancing hop character. Light spicy note, peppery.

chinchill (2995) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2015
served in pint glass (from notes). A - clear amber with ample off-white head Aroma of mild piney hops. Tastes a bit better than it smells. Some malt sweetness hits the tongue initially, but there’s plenty of hop bitterness right after and in aftertaste. M= crisp; medium body and carbonation.

Nice piney, citrus, and hoppy aroma. Tingling feeling on the tongue as it goes in and smooth as it goes down.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy, amber in color, nice foamy head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus fruit and caramel. Earthy taste, malty, bitter and hoppy. Drinkable and enjoyable; pretty decent.

pkbites (718) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Slightly hazy yellow pour. Thick off white head sticky as glue lasts the duration. Some pretty good lacing. Clean malt & bakery nose. Very bitter upfront. Slight citrus and grapefruit on the palate. Hoppy aftertaste lasts a good long time. Not too shabby!!! Can @ "Noshville" Deli, Nashville Airport.

Not a big fan. Then again I thought I was getting an IPA. For an American ale I guess it's good. Just not enough bite and the finish is hardly there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1265) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Amber brew with white head. Light aroma. Taste is sweet light malt at the start with prominent floral hops emerging at the finish . Never quite loses the sweetness and ends with some odd malty notes. Sort of like a hopped up bitter, a style not big on bitterness despite its name. An average APA.
