opaque orange, wispy white head, fresh citrus hop aroma with a light floral quality, a bit thin, lots of hop flavor leads to a long bitter finish, slightly sweet malt tries to add balance but falls short to allow the hops to be the whole show,

picking up a nice sweet grapefruit to the aroma, caramel sweetness does a better job balancing the hops

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a golden color with an average white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Good balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Good bittersweet flavor with a good bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Worth having twice.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Clear light copper color with a thin off-white head. Soft faintly hopped aroma with some pale malt. Body has a viscous caramely mouthfeel but is lacking in hop presence. Semi-sweet thoughout with lightly bitter finish. Could be a little cleaner tasting.

Ughsmash (7003) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
On tap at Water Street - Delafield. Poured a clear medium amber with a 1" creamy beige head. Aroma picked up sweet caramel and floral notes with pine resin and a touch of herbal hoppage.. rather faint overall. The flavor was carried by pine resin and grapefruit bitterness which paired well with the sweet caramel base.. higher bitterness with a sweet resiny finish.. tasty. Nice balance with the bitterness a little sharp at points.. a tad abrasive at the finish. This would make a solid session brew.

crossovert (6344) - Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Could be waaay hoppier. It isn’t a bad hop flavor but it is a pretty weak brew.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
On tap @ the brewery. Hazy dull gold-amber. Aroma is weak peachy hops, light sweet malts. The palate delivers the same, with an earthy unpleasant undertone. Just not very good.

deyholla (5968) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at the Delafield location. Pours a clear gold with the slightest orange hue and a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has some earthy grassy hops with backing grains and a bit of sweetness in the finish. Flavor begins with some earthy grains but also hs some earthy pine and grassy hops.

arminjewell (5716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Pours hazy yellow/orange with white head, aroma is nice pine, caramel, touch of citrus. Taste up front is bitter pine, leading into sweet citrus and caramel, finishing nice and bitter. Nice surprisingly hoppy pale ale!

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Draft at the brew pub. Murky, rusty orange. Presents a nice, fruity aroma. Drinks with an almost smoky malt swirl right up front and then comes the sweet, melon-fruity salad. (#5144, 7/5/2013)
