Nice caramel malt back drop, citrus and pine hops, moderate bitterness, clean finish. A bit thin, but I enjoyed this, very drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Wonderful IPA with slightly sweet taste and crisp finish. There is a resounding floral presence and the hoppy bitters are extrordinarily mild and simply unoffensive. It drinks easily and is light on the intake with ample carbonation. I had this in a bottle in quaint Harbortown bar/hotel in St. Michael’s, MD with a few colleagues. We all had round after round of this brew after maxing some crabs. This is a good party beer for the norm and even for thise who prefer craft brews with a nice approach!

Pours a hazy golden amber with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of citrus, spicy hops, bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, citrus, a little herbal and grapefruit/

On tap @ the Brewery-Clear golden color w/a slight white head. Floral hop aroma. Mild pine hop flavor w/traces of grass & some good carbonation. Very easy drinking session brew, not complicated, but very tasty. This is their "transition brew" for the BMC drinkers, but it is very tasty. Got a growler to go, which kept very well til the next weekend-which I’m drinking now w/adding these ratings! Not overly hopped like some pale ales. Long, smooth hop finish.

auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On tap at the Red Roost - Winterhaven, MD. Aroma is a light salt of hop leaf, lemon sugar, and general alcohol. Clean, floral and light. Nice aroma. Pours a darker golden, with a soapy head in whitish. Flavor is a milder version of the ESB. A generic hop leaf and resin citrus over plain pale malt. Bright. Fresh. Clean. Extremely drinkable. Nice and solid, but nothing too crazy.

Bottle picked up at SL. Poured into a sam adams specialty glass. Weak golden yellow color, small head. Decent aroma of some lights hops and corn? For a pale ale its not bad at all. Light hops, little earthiness to it. Light in texture. Overall good for its style but I would rather have an IPA/DIPA.... 12-7-1941.... Drank this one for the troops!

light gold with moderate white head. nose of herbal hops with a touch of oxidation. firm bitterness for the style prior to herbal hop notes with perhaps a touch of munich malt, but very little malt component with a touch of yeast esters. a very dry finish, with the oxidation making it somewhat acrid feel. an aggressive version of the style and not bad

Reviewed from notes. Pours a dark golden color with a white head. The nose combines pine, floral, and citrus hops quite nicely. The taste furthers that, with a nice bitterness level and some citrus hops standing out. Good body and nice bitter balance. Drinks well--I’m looking forward to trying their other hoppy beers as well. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-10-2010

A nice hoppy pale ale. It reminds almost of a two hearted light, though nothing really match two hearted. Light sweetness. Floral hops. Some tropical fruit. Nice and easy to drink.

Bottled. Poured clear, bright orange with a short, easily-resuscitated off-white head. The aroma picked up caramel and biscuity malts with light citrus and floral hop accents.. simple and well-balanced. The flavor found biscuity and pale malts, with light peppery pine and a touch of citrus bitterness around.. dry and grainy on the edges.. some tanginess too, especially on the crisp, refreshing finish. Lighter-bodied and well-balanced on the palate.. clean feel with good transitions.. very good drinker.
