Bottle. Pours a transparent copper with a medium-sized head. Aromas are some soapy citrus with a little honey and caramel. Flavor is a great mix of citrus and pine hops with caramel & toffee malt. This balances out fairly nicely for my taste, and I wish I had bought a couple more of these.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 29, 2009
On tap at Brew Kettle. Clear amber color with a medium off-white head. Citrusy and floral hop aroma with a bit of malt. Citrusy and bitter hop flavor that is unforgiving. Not much malt balance here. I can definitely taste the cascades and centennials. Best of theirs I have had.

This poured a nice golden/amber color with a white heasd. Aroma was lots ofpiney and grapefruit hops. Flavor was mainly nice resinous pine and citrus fruits. This is a bit thin, but just by taste standards its is excellent

Thanks to PWoods for sharing from his growler. I have no idea why they call this a pale ale. This is more like a pretty big IPA. And I like it. Plenty of piney and juicy hops all over the place in this one. Plenty of bitterness but still remains very balanced. Decent body and non-cloying. I could drink an awful lot of this. Very well done. I will have to stop in and try some more of their beers.

Poured an amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, caramel malts, and some toast. Taste of caramel, resiny pine, citrus fruits, a bit of tobacco, toasted malts, and finishing quite hoppy. I would have guessed this was an IPA rather than APA as well.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 17, 2008
On tap at the Brew Kettle. Pours a lightly hazy golden/orange with a medium creamy off white head that laced. Aroma was a load of fresh American hops, citrus, a lot of grapefruit and orange with a nice touch of caramel malt. Flavor was also a load of the 4 C hops, lightly toasted malt, floral, pine and mixed citrus.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
In short: An intensely hopped IPA trying to pass as a session Pale Ale. Very tasty.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear dark golden body with a medium white head
In long: Foresty/coniferous nose. Toasted malts with smooth caramel balanced by a lots of tasty coniferous and citrusy hops. Hops flavour is about 2/3 coniferous, 1/3 citrus fruits. The body was soft, the carbonation was medium. The pleasant over-the-top hopping was a lot more akin to an IPA than a PA. A lot more satisfying than the last 4 Cs I had, junior college year report card, too much beer not enough studies.

kramer (4989) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2008
22 oz bottle, via crizay. Pours a copper body with a slight yeast haze under a thin off-white head that quickly faded. Nice bright citrusy hoppy nose with some candy-sweet malt. The flavor is heavily bitter, and maybe a bit harshly so. Well beyond the average APA for sure. A little bit of an ashtray sharpness on the finish. Toasted bready malt base. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slight resiny stickiness and moderate fizzy carbonation. Lingering leafy finish. Overall, plenty of hops in here, but I just don’t think that it was the right mix of them.
