Pour is a yellowish gold color with a small white head. Nose is of citrus and grass for the most part. Taste is pretty much all hops, though nothing overpowering, still rather light and refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a nice Orangeish golden color. The aroma is big citrus, grapefruit. Just fantastic! The taste is a perfect bitterness up front with big citrus flavors. The back end has a perfectly balanced maltyness to smooth it all out. Just a perfect example of a Pale Ale. If it was a blind taste test, I would have thought it was IPA. F’ing great beer.

drpimento (2316) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Good beer but heavy in the grapefruit department. Poured with a huge foamy, frothy, off white head that lasted a while and lots of lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber. Aroma is hop, malt, fresh cut grass, wet grain. caramel. Flavor’s the same along with carbonic tang that accents the hop. Finish is like flavor, has lots of length, and is satisfying. Good stuff.

Auction. Hazed / golden pour with aromas of citrus, grassy hop. A nice crisp hoppy and citrus taste. A well -balanced brew.

12oz bottle .. . Pours a deep yellow gold .. medium foam .. great lacing .. . lots of flowers, citrus, and fresh pine .. . clean mouth .. . a great assertive pale .. . . If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason..

bottle thanks to secret santa poured a light amber in color with a thin covering of off white head. aroma has citrus, pines, caramel malt, and some resins. mouth feel coats well and there is good carbonation to push this across. flavor has medium bitterness, citrus, some caramel malt, and a finish that is good and drying. an ipa. in my eyes and certainly showcases the hops well but does not get juicy like I had hoped.

thome50 (1140) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottle via kbutler1, thanks for this awesome extra! Pours an orange to dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, more on the orange side than lemon or grapefruit. This stuff smells like heaven. Taste is off the charts for a pale ale. Crisp hops with more balanced malt/bitterness. Some more orange/citrus notes and just an awesome beer to drink. How I wish I could have access to this stuff off the shelf and fresh.

piscator34 (2021) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of orange, sour peach, and grass, along with both grainy pale and light caramel mats. The hops translate to more of a white grapefruit and green grape combo in the mouth, backed my crispy pale malt. Medium to light bodied with a finish that is both bitter and grainy. An enjoyable pale ale, but not the total hop bomb I was expecting.

Bottle many thanks to ICEatALAMO. Clear golden copper pour, with a nice foamy off-white head. Beautiful hoppy, fruity nose. Same nice hoppy flavor, pine, citrus, caramel, and sweet fruit. Lightly grassy. Light on the palate, very refreshing. Very glad to try this!
