Bottle. Not sure of the age. Poured clear golden brown with small head that faded. Light aroma and flavour. Kind of watery but still really good. I’m really glad I tried this and I recommend a taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tangerine, dank stank, grapefruit, and slight mango aromas filled my nostrils. A soapy white head settled atop the orange gold ale. Sweetness followed by medium bitterness rolled across my tongue. Soft creaminess followed by a rather thin finish, this was pleasant but somewhere between Moon Man and Michelob Pale Ale.

4/18/11. 12oz bottle the wifey picked up randomly! Score! Clear apple-juice colored pour with a fluffy tan head that fades fast. Big aroma of hops and caramel maltiness supporting it nicely. A forward hop presence in the flavor with a lingering almost chocolately malt backbone. Nice!

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz sample on tap at The Ale and the Witch in St. Pete, FL. Really nice orange-citrus-hempy aroma present. Nice sweetness present, too, and pleasantly aromatic. Transparent orange-copper body with a smallish off-white head and fair lacing. Starts with a really strange chewy, dusty, wet cardboardy maltiness. Has moderately bitter herbal hop flavors to finish. Very papery and awkwardly dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011-04-17. Crisp orange body, modest white head. 3+ Modest hoppy aroma highlighted by mild but pleasant citrus character. Flavour is similar, with pleasant citrusy hops, very light resin character and modest bitterness throughout. Average palate. Not as assertive as my preference but this is quite pleasant and eminently drinkable. Bottle shared by Radek

The Biscuit malt tone meets abundant hops but I sense an imbalance here. Our American micros seem to do a fine job at producing bitter pales with coppery like tones but I wish they would focus on overall quality instead of appeasing the hopheads (yes I love IPAs). As for the water, the palate is rather wet to showcase their local watershed.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange and lime peel nose, moderate strength, with grassy hints. Clear amber, thin head. Watery and thin, no malt presence. Hop flavor is there but less strong than the aroma. Disappointing for such a reputable brewery.

Draft @ capones. Clear copper pour with some white head. Light spice, and earthy tones, aroma notes. Flavor has earthy, herbal and spice hop tones, nice session brew.
