Clear light golden pour with MASSIVE billowing pillowtop head. Extremely floral nose with just a hint of citrusy/funky yeast. that shows up more on the flavor. Bottle was about 6 months old, but the hops had really faded quite a bit. Really reminds me kinda of an Orval with the funkiness. Not unenjoyable though.

From notes at bier baron in dc. A: straw ale with brilliant clarity. White and sud like foam leave sheets of lacing. S: sweet, lite and with lots of floral notes. I keep sniffing this one. T: again with sweet notes, converge into the ever-present grains and finishes with a good bitter jab at the end. I get jasmine on the finish. Excellent. M: med to lo body (little heavy for the style but I like) and low carb. Slick finish. O: might be my new favorite domestic pils. Really nice beer. Serving type: on-tap 06-23-2011

I must be missing something here, because I taste nothing close to a 95 worthy rating. Extravagant fluffy head, burnt orange color, aroma of pine and earth tones. Not much of a malt presence, nor is the hop flavor that enjoyable. Soapy and thin.

Shanebrews (173) - Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2013
This is good. It is an American IPA, displaying the hop character of a beer from the Pacific Northwest, yet in balance with a discernible malt presence. It is bitter but balanced, refreshing, and pairs with food with great versatility.

rumproasts (2863) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2013
bottle. Deep golden with two finger head. This is intensely hoppy for a pale. I suspect that’s due to the whole cone hops. Light malt body, and nice piney bitterness.

Bottle->shaker. Light amber with huge frothy offwhite head. Very hop-forward with pine and citrus. Lasting bitter finish. Good.

May 2010. I’ve had this beer several times when I can find it around town. Orange amber color with a nice white head. Pine, hops, citrus, spice and floral aromas. Very nice and balanced APA.

Dr_Fellini (393) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a very hazy amber color with a frothy light tan head. Aroma is quite citrusy, almost resembling a lemon pine sol. Flavor is a well balanced light caramel sweetness and citrusy bitterness. Body is light to medium with a light lingering bitterness. Wonderful pale ale.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours a hazy dark gold with a MASSIVE head after gushing and losing close to half the bottle. Aromas are citrus hops, then some cheese like notes and a big dose of soap. Flavors citrus, then smooth caramel, cardboard, soap over a foundation that is equal parts grass and pepper. The palate is very carbonated and almost gives the feeling of heat as the carbonation hits the tongue and agitates; it falls for the massive loss of beer due to gushing and the huge head. Overall, this is still a pretty solid beer, if I didn’t have the gushing and strange pepper and heat notes this would be stellar.
