Obviously a hoppy beer but it seems to favor the acidic, bitter elements of hops. Its not as effervescent as I would like but is rather heavy, slightly soapy. This sounds all negative but I still like this beer and will continue to buy it.

sebletitje (9554) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2010
orange, off-white head piney hops with plenty of citrus undertones, lush and floral dominance, light caramel malts with a mild bitter profile. at 5.5% this one has plenty to offer on the hop side, light and tasty.

Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2010
On tap at the brewery, pours clear with a nice head, floral hops aroma. Taste is floral hops, citrus, nectar. There is a mellowness in the finish, where the nectar appears. Floral hops dominate, but its well balanced. Great Pale Ale.

cazort (560) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2010
I loved this...eminently fruity hops (citrusy, with some other fruit tones as well), very aromatic without ever being harsh. Medium bitterness, medium-bodied brew, not too heavy, just the right alcohol content to go with the hop profile. Very pleasing to drink. I could handle more bitterness but it was great as-is.

tmoreau (3848) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Pint served at the brewpub bar the day before the GTOM with a clear, amber/gold color, modest, off white head foam, and web-like lacing. The aroma was perfumey citrus, esp. grapefruit, some sweet fruit, and a bit of resin. The flavor added a nice balance of smooth malt and medium-full hop bitterness that lasted well into the finish. A nicely hopped and sessionable Pale.

thetomG (246) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Clearish golden yellow pour. Decent head with spotty lacing left around the glass. Aroma is excellent - slightly fruity, slightly hoppy. Flavor follows the nose, but is more intense with just the slightest twinge of bitterness finishing things off nicely. Feels just a tad overcarbonated, but other than that is an easy drinker. Not too bitter considering the generous amounts of hops used, this is a beer I could easily have several of in a session. Tasty, and something I would definitely drink again.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Poured from bottle, has an unclear amber color with white head, has a great aroma that is full of hops and it tastes just like it smells! Very good beer, one of my favorites in Madison, WI!

12oz bottle, courtesy of CaptainCougar. Medium off-white head atop hazy amber body. Aroma is moderately orange/grapefruit, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some grapefruit/orange. Light-medium body, quite drinkable.

pkbites (885) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with a frothy white head. Very nice floral aroma. A "thick" feel of melted caramel on the palate. Hoppy, but not as bitter as expected. I would prefer this a little more bitter, but this IS quite good. If you want hoppy beer with only medium bitterness, this is your brew!
