hainer (20) - New York, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Very well executed color (copper amber), lacing, aroma and texture. Pours with an exemplary head and immediately reeks of fine, quality ingredients. The taste starts citrusy with hints of caramel, but the hops soon take over, in a welcome, lasting rush of nicely calibrated bitterness. A very fine pale ale whose quality far exceeds the shoddy design and print job of the can from which it was poured.

Draft at O'Malley's Pub in Virginia for the Cap One refresh. This is a top notch APA. Bitter enough to be classified as an IPA. Lots of citrus, stone fruits, pine, and grassy hops. Clean, fruity, dry finish.

downender (9008) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Bottle from Total Wines. Amber in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Citrus hops, pineapple and tangerine fruits, crisp malts and a dryish finish. Good.

shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Bottle. Orange, caramel malt, and orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large eggshell white head. Moderately sweet orange, caramel malt, and moderately bitter earthy grapefruit peel/dry grass flavor. Decent body. Interesting hops.

jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Pleasant bitterness, citrus and pine aromas. Just a solid IPA, nothing fancy, bitter and quenching, lemony with a light roast on the finish.

kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at Miller’s Charlottesville, VA, 9.5.16. Clear amber. Faint grapefruit and wine aroma with some onion. Bitter oniony and leafy taste. Medium body, long, bitter and leafy finish.

malvrich (364) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Can dated best by 11/23/16 into an IPA glass. A: Poured roughly to a huge off-white foamy head. Pale, slightly hazy burnt orange body. Great head retention and prolific lace. S: Light scent overall with orange/grapfruit notes out front. Faint caramel. T: Bitter and roasty at first. Some orange and zest then join but hops seem muted. M: Dry finish with soft carbonation. Medium body is pretty drinkable. O: Average to good overall. Certainly nothing to complain about and well worth a try.

PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Newport News, Va - Total Wine & More - 12 oz can, Dark orange pour has a slight haze to it with a silky snow white head that sticks around a while. Light spruce to the aroma, a touch of nuttiness. Solid flavor, light citrus bitterness, some, light pineapple fruitiness, a touch of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Enjoyable,
