Pours a golden amber color with a team has. The smell is caramel, toasted malt, citrus. The taste is as it smells ending fruity, citrusy, dry and a touch bitter. Light body with fine carbonation.

From bomber (thanks Schaefer) Pours a murky orangish color. Two fingers if white head. Orange hints in the taste and aftertaste. Hops and caramel are there, too. Not bad. Not great, but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy glowing orange. Smell is fruity orange candy. Taste is smooth creamy sweet orange slice candy light bitterness. Creamy body, medium carbonation. Pretty tasty but a touch of booze in there. Like a tamed dreadnaught maybe.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/17/2014. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale ale. Good complexity and balance of citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

tap at Three Fires - Pours clear copper colored with an off-white, lingering head that laces well. It smells mainly of citrus hops with a hint of pine. The flavor is moderately bitter with caramel and pale malt and a slight earthy characteristic. Very good.

thedm (4928) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 12, 2014
This draft brew from a restaurant poured an extremely small sized head of foamy, finely sized, white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy orange colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The semi-flat mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The odd tasting flavor contained notes of mild citrus, breads and hops. It is an OK brew, just nothing special. Kind of a let down from one of my favorite breweries.

jkwood04 (3804) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 12, 2014
22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy and sort of fruity hops, pale and caramel malts, and light dough with hints of bubblegum. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A solid pale ale, but not the best of the style.

fattybladdy (507) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Dark orange amber in color. Grassy aroma. Taste is grassy hops and light citrus. Fairly mellow for 3F but still pretty drinkable.

tmoreau (2325) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a lightly hazed, amber/copper color, with a modest layer of soft white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose started with a dry, rye spice, and pumpernickel-like breadiness, more malt presence than esters, but a touch of the latter. A bit washed out, texture-wise, with a little less than medium body, fair carbonation, moderate hop bitterness, malt, and a touch of fruit as the aroma. Okay, but by no means awed..
