Had this one on draught at the Logan Airport brewpub in Boston, Massachusetts. Hazy, reddish-brown pour with a wispy tan head, citrusy hoppy nose, a nice caramel malt back, and a clean finish.
Bottle. Nose rich in orange, grapefruit, toast and caramel malts, very sweet. Pour clear, dark amber gradient with a foamy beige head. Taste medium-bitter, lightly sweet, earthy and light woody, faintly astringent but not bad; major component is strong toast. Malt is a little flabby but there’s enough complexity to compensate, unfortunately most of the fruity hop lure has disappeared. Medium body, nicely crisp with subtle brown and amber shades and depths, finding like 15% Altbier ancestry here and larger English influence. Enjoyed.

One of a number of accumulated 12 oz. bottles that made it’s way to the back of my cellar frig, poured to a mug at home showing a hazed, orangey amber color, with some soft white froth, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was a bit of dankness & resin, followed by some fruitiness of citrus & pit variety, with hints of breadiness and caramel sweetness. Ditto on the flavor, a little less than medium bodied, with decent carbonation, and modest citrus & rind bitterness, accompanied by touches of tartness and dryness. An acceptable Pale with some IPA tendencies. AleTamer12 (21) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2016

Some citrus notes. Pours an opaque orange brown with a thin white head. Good lacing. A basic chalky taste with some light sours and leather notes. Good carbonation. Drinkable but not distinctive.

This pale ale poured a golden amber with next to no head even after a vigorous pour. Scents include honey, hay and a little grass. First swig was quite smooth. Initially hoppy with a med bite bitterness. Finish is a little grassy with some caramel. Hoppy bitterness lingers on the palate.

Pours a lightly hazy brown-orange with tan head. A fruity malt and spice aroma. A heavy malt with some fruits, citrus hops, and grains. A sweet malt and lightly dry grain aftertaste. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 27, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting and 12oz bottle. Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. jtclockwork (16444) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2016
