3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Ram. Cloudy orange-brown pour with a short white head leaving minimal lace. Toast and grapefruit hop nose. Medium body with a solid, roasty-toasty malt body and resinous and lightly citrus hops which add a pleasant bitterness without much complexity. A solid APA and very sessionable.
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 Pours s clear yellow Amber. Good lacing. Taste has a strange note of fresh mint. Maybe celery. Panzuriel (2429) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2017
Appearance: Medium amber. Slightly hazy. Finger of white foam.
Nose: Light hop aroma. Grass, citrus and some floral. Lightly roasted malt.
Taste: mildly bittersweet grass and citrus hops with lightly sweet caramel.
Body: medium to lighter, nitro bubbles.
Parting thoughts: I did have this on the nitro tap. The creamy texture was classic nitro. I feel like it might have detracted a bit from this more subtle ale.

Draft flight at Ram Columbus on June 22, 2017. Medium dark orange/amber hue, sweet somewhat medicinal aroma, somewhat soapy/malty taste with very little hop character. Pass! b3shine (9255) - Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Draft to taster at the Fishers brewpub. Looks decent; a transparent golden orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes of aged fruity and grassy hops with a mildly bittersweet backbone. A touch of spice on the tongue as well. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. An inoffensive but underwhelming example of the style. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Clear dark gold body with a wispy white head. The nose is equal parts citrusy hops and sweet crystal malt, the crystal is a big turnoff for me. The flavor is sweet and under attenuated with a heavy iced tea crystal malt finish. Very light citrusy hoppiness. Light to medium bodied with a sticky residual sweetness and soft fizzy carbonation. This one is not up my alley for the style.

An okay pale ale. Tried this during HILT in Indianapolis in 2016. Mild and citrusy. Well balanced with caramel sweetness. Homer321 (5248) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Aroma is very floral and fruity with light citrus hop notes. Not a bad aroma. Fairly hazy orange with minimal white head. Initially bitter followed by a supporting malt but not caramel sweet. Light bread. Hop flavor is very floral like the nose, roses. Decent enough beer but I don’t care for the hops.

Draft. Pours cloudy orange. Has a watery palate. Not a full body. Light and citrus hops little gratefruit. Kinda poor pale ale. onceblind (10861) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Cloudy deep golden in color with a foamy white head. Lovely fresh hop and leafy hop aromas. Nice smooth hoppy flavor with leafy and grassy tones, a nice bready pale malt backbone, very crisp leafy/fresh/whole cone hop action. ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Sampled at Ram-Rosemont, 10/26/15. Hazy orange. Sweet orange juice aroma. Orange juice flavor as well, with a light bitterness as well. Light and a little thin. Just kinda dull.
