a pretty bitter taste, made with a lot of different hops, with a medium amber colored body.

From old tasting notes. Brassy yellow gold color. Bubbly beige head. Fragrant hop bouquet. Tangy toasted malt flavor hints at fruit and nuts splendid citrus hop finish. Very good.

A bit light and watery, but with a thin hoppish finish. Grassy, earthy, with a buttery aspect as well. Not bad, but not a standout pale ale.

24-ounce can graciously shared by yourefragile in line at the BA Sexual Chocolate release. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a pale yellow color that is mostly clear. Thin white head and a few spots of lacing as it falls to a thin cap. The nose brings some very light floral hops alongside some grainy, tannic malt. The flavor really falls down and carries almost no hop presence, mostly consisting of straight pre-mash grain and some tannins. Light body and no real bitterness, except from the grain. Not a fan. Serving type: can

Mild in flavor, with the typical citrus and slightly bitter hops, it was a decent APA but not great.

2.7
Leafs93 (2305) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours yellow out of oil can. Aroma is light citrus. Taste is sweet with slight bitters, but much more sweet. Very light, much better then the Cold Spring wheat I drank prior. Again $1 for the can made me give it a shot.

2.4
Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2010
Bottle. Pours more of an amber body with a mild white creamy head. Bittering dry, dusty hop tones, pencil shavings, lead, a bit of brown paper bags. Hops seem either really bitter or really old, neither one changes the fact that its somewhat unpleasant. More oxidation like soap tones as it gets warmer, fortunately the malt bill kept these at bay but overall this was really lackluster.

3.2
Qubert (62) - USA - APR 11, 2010
pours a hazey orange color with half inch of white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Flavor is bitter hops and sweet malt. Pleasantly surprised by this one.

2.8
IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Bottle. Pour is light to medium golden with a light white head. Aroma is slightly bitter with some citrus. Light malt with a little biscuit character. Ok brew, but definitely not a good pale blend-wise.

3.2
jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2009
32oz can-pours an off white head and slightly hazy yellow color. Aroma is mild/slightly sweet citrus hops. Tasetis sweet citrus hops, secondary light malt-caramel.

3.3
JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - OCT 22, 2009
32 oz can. Poured a orangish hazy color with very tiny head. Soapy aroma with some faint hops. Citrus notes, mild hop flavor. Medium pallet. Overall not that great.
