3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light copper, quite clear, with a thin veneer of a head. Aroma is sharp grapefruit and some biscuit malts. Quite sweet to my surprise, bit of a bite on the grapefruit hop finish. Not bad, but didn't do much for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Yard tasting event in Wayne, PA. Amber colored, huge aroma of hops, citrus, and slight yeast. Tastes extremely hoppy, but well balanced. Finishes very hoppy, but with a final burst of malt, slight sweetness and crispness. A world class pale ale. (It's getting to the point where there are so many really good pale ales, IPAs, and double IPAs that I don't know which ones to drink (and buy) first)). I guess i shouldn't be complaining!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral hop and sweet malt in the aroma. Copper bodied, generous head and "webby" lacing. Fruity caramel and bread malts and a nice dose of orange peel bitterness along with pepper and old brown shoe. Very enjoyable!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good assertive hop aroma with some caramel malt in the background. Poured with a good cream colored head that lasted about normal time. Clear light amber colored beer. Good classic american type cascade flavor with a crisp clean bitterness. Not much caramel malt flavor as it should be in an american pale. A veer good rendition of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orangish yeller in color, this ber has an ample white head. Aroma is a mixture of sweet malts and floral hops. Easily drinkable, this brew is smooth on the palate, somewhat grassy up front, with a good hop bite on the back. Finishes drily. Good example of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Relatively clear orange color body. Sweet floral hop nose. Quick orangy hop taste at first that quickly smooths itself out for a good finish. Great example of an American Pale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 Slight biscuit aroma out of the bottle, mildy floral aroma. Clear copper color. Mildly snappy hop taste with more of a citric aftertaste than flavor. Decently drinkable, but not outstanding.

Not as appetizing as hoped. The exotic aroma and bitter orange aftertaste presents an obstacle to enjoyment.

my favorite brewer with one of their best brews! a copper-brown brew with a strong off-white head. lacing is present and is a great beer to look at. the flavor is strong with hops but not overbearing. feels good to the palate. leaves a good pleasing aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a browned orange with a tall fluffy tan head. The aroma is predictable. Hops, citrus fruits, and light malts. The taste orange and lemon mixed with some pine and a hint of malt. The orange seems dominant. Very citrusy, nonetheless. The finish is bitter but not too mouth puckering. Pretty good IPA.
