KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a clear copper brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fluffy head that had great retention and possessed really good sheets of streaky lacing. The aroma was of a sweet biscuit malt, spruce and cascade hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of citrus (orange), caramel and a pronounced dark fruit (plum) presence. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a note of caramel and a strong fruity presence in the beginning, and then became somewhat hoppy with a nice creamy bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow with a wonderful sweet hoppiness left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a creamy dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall this was a very well balanced Pale Ale, with just the right amount of bitterness to go along with the mild fruity sweetness...

delnoche (452) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - NOV 15, 2014
12fl oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Deep amber with ample offwhite head. Aroma is flowery hops and oddly enough, cream cheese frosting. This beer is like a creamy hops festival in my mouth. Full body, lots of carbonation. Lengthy finish of hops and alcohol. Such a good beer. Wow! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

baraciisch (1966) - California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle courtesy of douce... Burnt orange in color... Aroma of citrus, caramel, toffee, light pine... Flavor is citrus hops, lots of caramel up front, lingering pine and citrus hop dryness on finish, some grapefruit, sticky hop resins... Well balanced, enjoyable... Deceivingly drier than you'd expect by looking at it... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours very clear amber, light tan head that stands up. Aroma is malt balanced with citrus note. Can really taste the English pale malt structure. Very nice pale!

wihlan (305) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
Fat mikkeller and friends - kopparfärgad, något grumlig. Fin maltsmak med en hint av karamell, tydlig men angenäm beska.

Väldigt mycket sötma i aromen, humlig. Riktigt fin balans i arom och kropp.

SotallyTober (19) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Has a amber pour, with a thick off white head that left lacing throughout. A citrus, fruits, and pine aroma. There is an orange, grapefruit, pine, and floral taste. Mildly bitter finish that sticks around on the palate. Overall, this is a solid refreshing brew.
