22oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a light reddish hue and a small (1 finger or less) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, eventually receding down to a thin film and possessed some good spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).
The taste was lightly malty and bitter sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, progressing with a mild citrus sweetness and a bitter hop finish. The flavor lasted an average duration with a fruity hoppy taste settling in on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body, watery and a tad dry in texture with a lively carbonation.
Overall a very good Pale Ale, which possessed a decent hoppiness that was set off slightly by a mild citrus sweetness...
Dunkles gelb schöner schaum, harzig fruchtiger geruch, im Geschmack kräftig leichte trockenfrüchte etwas dunkler honig harzig herb, ein kräftiges Pale ale.

Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a creamy beige head. Tastes like tropical fruit, citrus and pine hops, and biscuit. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like tropical fruit, citrus hops, biscuit malt, and grapefruit. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear light copper body with a small off-white head. Light floral hops, some husky malt, a little toasty. The flavor is just very lightly bitter, a little grainy on the finish. Fairly thin and watery. Meh. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Draft @ Coaster’s Pub. Pours a light amber with a small puffy white head. Mildly hoppy aroma. Not a whole lot of hoppiness in the flavor, less than expected for an APA, with too much doughy sweetness. Not bad but kind of off-style.

Nothing overly offensive. I would say its more like a bitter traditional pale. Definitely falls flat if going for a traditional "American" pale ale. Aroma very dead. With the maltiness comes the hop bitterness which is the only attribute of the hop displayed. Harsher bitterness. I'd like to see more life to it. Some personality in the aroma. Gosh darn it this is an APA! Instead it smells like its been brewed in a sink. Tastualy(it's a word) I'd like to see there be a friendship between hops and malts with the hops being the better friend and a more pleasant bitterness. It was cold and I have wanted to try them my last couple visits to cocoa. But this local doesn't come close to what's available from cigar city or sweetwater or terrapin or etc etc etc so it's time to deliver if support is desired. I think they can do it. And maybe a slight redo on the labels. But start with the beer. We want you to nail this! I'll see u next year and desire improvement!

22 oz bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, orange citrus, hops seem to be faded, sweeter malts. This is ok, but not sure of the age. jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with thin cap of lacy white head. Aroma is pale malt, fresh bready grain, and slight citrus hops. Taste is pretty much all the bready grain, with a hint of bitter. Nice when it’s fresh. Suttree (6484) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Secret Santa - thanks! Copper, nice loose white head. Smells caramel, tobacco and grass. Taste is smooth, velevety. I get flavors of caramel, prune, and then citrusy hops. Pretty tasty.
