Copper color with a two finger head that sticks around leaving great lacing behind. Aroma of strong citrus notes, dank hops and pure deliciousness! Taste follows the nose bitter but with a decent malt backbone, slightly sweet but very slightly not too much. This is a great pale ale the boarders on ipa. Really showcases the Amarillo hop. Easy and smooth beer, hides alcohol well. I want more!

Draft at the source. Hazy orange color. Aroma of orange peel and white bread. Taste is nice citrus, flowers. Best pale ale I’ve had for a long, long time. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Hazy light amber with a good rich head. Big, weedy amarillo nose. Rich bitterness, very dry with just a slight sweetness late. Very refreshing. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Growler from Seventh Sun. Pours a nice orange copper with a white head. Nose is awesome- I get all manner of piney hops with some wonderful citrus bursts from within. This nose is awesome- I don’t know what happened to the growler the gents rating this before me got, but the nose is the best part of this beer. Flavor is similar- hops recede a bit, so the assault is not as brutal as the nose made it seem, but still very strong. Light to medium in body and a aromatic assault.

Tap at 7venth Sun. Low haze straw pour with webby, white lace. Nose is super rich Amarillo hops, buttery toffee, caramel, fresh and rich dichotomy. Taste is nutty, rich, butterscotch, loads of the elusive "quenching" malty character found in Alesmith IPA, original batch Ballast Point Sculpin, a few others. Oily, rich palate. No astringency, no tannins, no heavy sugar body, no aggressive bitterness. A masterpiece IPA. Really at this abv, it should be moved to IPA from APA.

Several times at the tasting room, nice crisp tasting Pale Ale, can’t believe it’s nearly 7%! Nothing too strong in the aroma, just right for me, the appearance is a golden colour with a nice head, tastes of citrus and hoppy. Great beer overall!!

Pours hazy golden orange with a big off white head and decent lacing. The aroma brings dry light piney hop notes, like dry crushed hop heads. The flavor brings juicy orange hop flavors on a decent body with a solid ending, so nice off tap into the growler. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Draft at brewery. Single hop Amarillo. Pure juicy orange color. A sweet malt profile with an overlay of bright orange peel and juice. The flavors to me are very citrusy, mostly orange. Balanced and drinkable but seems a little on the strong side. Solid.

From notes. Pours a nice copper with a pretty thin white head. Pretty nice lacing.
Nice hoppy aroma, the citrus really shines, I also get some sweet fleshy fruit.
Great taste, getting close to an IPA, nice citrus hops with some tropical fruit, tangirne and orange. Just a little sweetness in there.
Medium body for a pale ale, fairly vibrant carbonation.

Draft at Trinity World of Beer for Tampa Bay Beer Week 2013. Clear golden pour with a thin, dense foam blanket for a head. Very nice sudsy sheet of lacing along the side of the glass. Aroma has a mild piney citrus hop presence. Flavor is clean. Fairly dry mouthfeel with a good hop bite in the finish.
