Draft at Blue Monkey, Pours hazy golden with small clearish white head, ok lacing. Notes of bitter lemon rind, melon, dry hops and heavy lemongrass diesel. Finishes super dry with a pleasant hop bite. I could drink a lot of this in a short period of time.

EithCubes (4857) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Growler from JCs. Nose is beautiful fruity/juicy hoppy, expecting some rindy bitterness, theres a little melon, and an intoxicating musk. Sickly pale yellow body with a short white head. Taste is strongly bitter, pretty dry with a bready finish, bitterness a little rubbery, body watery. Palate cleansed by these scrubbing hops, faint spiciness and graininess, and an element of hay/straw. Bright citrus is very nice, especially rindy. The malt bill is in the golden ale style, basically getting out of the way for the hops. Soft and quite repeatable, and I dont know what it is, but this is pale ale that tastes decidedly European to me, perhaps with a bit of English woodiness, which might not resonate with anyone else. Enjoyed, and its a good semi-session, but prefer the sororal Mandarina.

Leafs93 (1671) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pours gold with a medium white head, good lacing. Aroma is melon, citrus and grass. Taste is sweet with melon undertones. Smooth and very refreshing.

jredmond (5315) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Draft at Misconduct with PJ and Pat. Pours a clear golden body with thin white head and nice lacing. Aroma is fresh crisp hop, light melon, maybe some watermelon and pear in addition to a nice fresh hop. Moutfheel is crisp and refreshing, nicely carbonated with notes of melon fruits, grassy hop, light citric hop and lemon. Nice sessionable pale ale.

ReggieDunlap (3056) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium creamy white head...nice creamy lacing. Aroma has some fresh citrus notes and hints of spice and grass. Flavor has lots of grass with a touch of spice and a nice melon accent. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a very dry grassy/spicy finish. Crisp and clean.

patrickfannon (1240) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap at Misconduct Tavern with James and PJ. Pours very pale straw yellow translucent with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma of hay, grass, lemon zest and onion. Taste is very smooth, crisp lemon, grass, and chive. Body is über light and nicely dry. Refreshing as hell and incredibly sessionable. Great pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2013
transparent gold, puffy white head with heavy lacing, pillowy with crater, thick lacing. Nose is surprisingly melon, softly pulpy, urea hints with dough and rind. Flavor equally soft, more grain ad bitterness, ultra balanced through the dry yet sweet fruit-grain end. Stunning, right out of left field. Imagine the brightest Victory pilsner with no C issues, all the grain-bitterness finish, yet heaps of high-attenuated melon balance. Nearly Table Beer or HFs best, lest brightness but more dryness.
