Big citrus smell and taste. Hoppy to the core of the beer, and then a big flowery finish. Still a good range of flavors: lemon, grapefruit, grass, potpourri, dry wood, oil. A moderate body gives the hops a distinct, long-lasting sharpness.

12oz bottle. Very cloudy orange with medium slowly diminishing head that laces well. Citrus & floral aroma. Strange floral aftertaste, did I just eat the bouquet of flowers? Long bitter finish with grapefruit or something like it. You wouldn’t think it by the name, but this beer is very hoppy… decent but not stellar.

12oz form a long ago trade, shared with my gf cyn. Pours orange with foamy 2 finger tan head. Nose has light citrus notes. Taste is sweet and light and a bit acidic. Feels a bit turned to me.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a large dense uneven head. A woodsy citrus aroma. Thin body and very dry on the tongue. Fairly unbalanced, it may not be "crazy bitterness" but it is serious and dont call me surely. One dimensional and seems a little more of an IPA.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Translucent and buffed copper in color with a thin, oily foam head capping the top. Aroma is amiable, with ginger, starfruit, toasted grain and tangerines fornicating with caramelized brown bread. A hint of strawberry kiwi sneaks into the secondary. A formidable toasted grain flavor comes in like wheat bran integrated into a loaf a triscuit-esque table bread. Sweet caramel ribbons weave through a Munich backbone. Subtle tangerines and honeyed grapefruit droll moderately with the midline carbonation. Medium bodied and quenching in composition, winding down with seven grain bread and ginger blood oranges basking in a light, honey glaze.

MartiniFiend (104) - Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Vary dark gold in color( almost amber)and cloudy.Strong bold hop aroma and is thick and full bodied to the palate. It has a strong hop taste followed by a mild citrus and ends with a hop flavor mixed with a little maltiness. This is an all around excellent pale ale!

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2008
From the bottle this poured a hazy light amber body with a lot of minute particles in suspension. Nice head & lacing. At the base of the aroma are sweet pale malts, soon displaced by the fresh hop scents of grapefruit, pine, zest, and wildflowers. The fruity hops dominate the flavor, although the beer isn’t seriously bitter. All hops noted in the nose return for the lingering, moderately bitter finish. Quite nice.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - FEB 18, 2008
12 oz bottle via Mys Swap 3.0 (Thanks Monger!) This one is a hazy amber with a large beige head. Nose is mostly floral hops with a touch of citrus and some lemon. Taste starts with orange, then a little pine, and lots of grapefruit with a dash of lemon. This is hoppy yet bittersweet and rides on a good malt backbone. Hops do take center stage though. It almost seems like it was wet-hopped. Body is light. Carbonation is moderate. A nice easy drinking APA with some good hoppy flavor.

Pretty good APA, sampled at Food and Froth. Very hoppy, with some bite and piney flavor.

Had this one on draught at Angelic Brewing Company in Madison, Wisconsin. Hazy, medium orange pour with a thick, bubbly off-white head, rosy, flowery hops in the nose with a strong, bitter taste, clean with flowery hoppiness, and a clean, strong finish. Good.
