12 ounce bottle from Wine Warehouse, opened 5/13/14.. Pours a hazy orange color with a large foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big citrus hops and pale malt. The taste is citrus hops, pale malts, a bit of a tropical vibe. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, simple, well balanced.

Sample at Luckys in Dayton. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Short strings of lace on the glass. Aroma of hops and bready malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter citrusy hops character with toasted malt behind it. The finish is floral with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sammy (11498) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Bang on pale ale enjoyed at the Tap Room. Light golden colour, lacey,easy smooth mouthfeel. Citrus orange bitterness. Good drinkability. No astringency at well. This apparently will become their main pale ale. Above average bodied and medium hoppiness.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Orange pour in a sample glass at Fate. This is an overly malty, somewhat off putting beer. Green coffee, not enough hops. Weird.

slowrunner77 (10763) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2014
A solid APA that is a little IPA leaning, but manages a gentle balance that most IPAs do not. Lots of citrus and some pine on the nose. Carmel and bready malt backbone. Lingering bitter finish. 6-packs, too
