Reid (2419) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2014
22 oz bomber bought from "lifesource" in Salem OR. $3.69 Pours a clear orange hued ale with a good sized frothy cream coloured head. Nice enough hoppy aromas here. Floral and some citrius..goodish caramel malt backing. Taste si sweeter than first imagined..like sweet clementines. Nice bitter hop in the back of the mouth balances it somewhat but not all the way. Mouth feel is medium but i think the sweetness is a tad overdone and becomes a little cloying but not enought to make this a bad experience. OK APA..would drink again if offered

bigcat03 (296) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours clear amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, pine, and sweet bread. Initial taste is a nice balance of citrus and pine with a huge malt backbone. Aftertaste is big on malt with a little pine. Nice medium body with pleasant carbonation. Excellent beer that is easily drinkable and sessionable. This might be my new go to when I just simply need a good beer.

kevinator (2025) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Great pale ale. Nice bitter aroma and flavor that flirts with the IPA range. Citrus notes. Light malt background that only compliments the hop profile. Good light palate with a crisp bite. Average light copper/golden color.

Pours clear amber orange, head like whipped egg whites. Nose is bready caramel, hint of figgy fruit. Taste is orange, grapefruit, pine, honey biscuit. Basically fresh-squeezed IPA, light version. It all comes together well, light enough to be sessionable.
