Pours copper-gold, white frothy head. Aroma is faint in general, - grapefruit citrus, with a shortbread undertone. Taste follows suit, with a nice warm, malt framework for a clean hop-bitter finish. It has a bit more substance to the mouthfeel than most APA. Not particularly complex, but the balance hits my preferences very well - clean, refreshing, with a lttle substance. I don’t know but the water may play a part in this - never considered that before.
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 0,33 litre Bottle from Total Wine Bocca Park. Clear Golden with big white head. Hoppy aroma and taste. evie_snyder55 (1) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2017 does not count
The aroma is wheat bread and sweet caramel malts. The flavor has some bitterness up front from the hops but finishes sweet from the malts. I would try this again :) Unde (1181) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Golden yellow beer with smallish head on top. Aroma has sweet fruits, grapefruit and citrus hops, slight caramel note. Taste has same sweet tropical fruits in the beginning, then grapefruit and citrus bitterness comes and ending is slightly bitter but more in the sweet side. Medium body and medium carbonation.

clear amber color; very nice citrusy hop aroma with some pine and bready malt notes; flavor is pretty well balanced - citrusy hops with some light pine notes and medium bodied, bready malt drsordr (2926) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle enjoyed on our verandah of the Celebrity Millennium in Juneau so I’msure that influenced the rating. Nose tropical fruit, mango, light pale malt. Taste light bitter up front, then some fruit hop. Light grainy late. Mid palate sweet malt.

Deep golden color out of the bottle with a quickly shrinking white head. Grapefruit citrus hops in the nose. Caramel sweetness with bitter grapefruit, a harsh grass and a little tropical fruit in the finish. Nice hoppy pale ale. brandon1989 (712) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 9, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a nice thick two finger head. There is plenty of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is some pine with some citrus juice mixed in there. The aroma is much stronger than the actual flavor. The pine is faint and the flavor is more on the citrusy side. There is some white bread in the flavor as well. smaynard6000 (1268) - Apopka, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a golden color with a small tan head. Citrusy aroma. Hoppy bitter flavor with strong citrus notes. Light-to-medium bodied with a crisp bitter finish. Pretty tasty.
