UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Of the 3 pale ales I tried on tap at the brewery, this one is the best. The body is so juicy and thirst quenching! Pours unclear orange amber with a creamy white head. Aroma brings juicy hop sweet hop notes. Flavors are sweet and juicy citrus hops as well on a bigger than expected juicy body. Wow!

Pours a light amber. Taste is Citric and bitter. Perfect for a highly hopped ipa. I like this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at Cigar City. Pours a deep hazy orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is big citrus hops with grapefruit and a hint of pine. Flavor is similar- sessionable-ish and lots of big hops, kind of astringent in the finish, but a hop bomb nonetheless. Light to medium and body and pretty darned good.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a near clear orange gold with a tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus note with a bit of grapefruit bitterness and light grain. Flavor has a good amount of citrus up front with a hint of light grapefruit with a nice grain backing.

Growler from the brewery. Orange-amber pour with an off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing. I pick up grapefruit, grass, a touch of pine, and doughy malt in the aroma. The flavor follows that, showing grapefruit rind, sturdy sweet malt, a touch of resin, and a sharp bitter finish. Very good. In some ways this reminds me of Jai Alai.

On draft at Cigar City, pours a light amber color, aromas oof citrus, lemon zest, light sweet malt, and a touch of caramel. Flavors follow suit, little bitter orange peel in the aftertaste. A solid beer to drink outside.

Pours a copper color with an off-white head. Lacing sticks to my Cigar City snifter like it was painted on. Aromas of grapefruit and pine. Flavor were good and hoppy. Started with a hint of sweetness and finish with a nice hop bite. Medium bodied with a some what dry finish. Overall a nice pale ale featuring a great hop blend!!!

Growler thanks to my loving wife: Poured a copper burnt orange with a frothy off white head. Aroma was hops and fruit. Very juicy wet hops with a nice mix of fruit and sweet balancing malts. Nice lingering taste!

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.
