Voodoo (584) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours a vibrant golden color with a white head which stays around quite a whiled. Aroma is pure and clean floral hop. Floral aroma moves right into the taste hitting then clean and crisply with the malt and finishing with a touch of bitterness......a wonderfully well rounded pale with pronounced hop notes. Wonderful rendition of a well built hoppy American pale ale.

Bottle. Very nice pale. Light in color, clear, short white head. Soft hop aroma - prominent but not in your face. Medium body, light finish, lots of hop flavor without all the bitterness. Relatively low alcohol is not evident.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours light golden. Aroma is nice and floral citrus with a strong pine note, also a fair sweet doughy backbone. Flavor is similar, forward hop character, citrus and pine still. Nice soft bitterness in the finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Good beer.

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with light white head. Aroma of sweet malts and floral hops. Taste is smooth and malty up front, with a fruity hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty good overall.

12oz bottle from Antioch Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours a crystal clear, yellow amber color with a white head. Aroma is light, hoppy, pine, some orange citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, toasty, pine hops, with a light, bitter finish. A nice pale ale.

dinkle50 (1384) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Clear amber pour. Single finger head. Lots of lace. Aroma is very light with some fruit. Taste is full of west coast hops. Good bitterness level doesnt wreck your palate. Light mouth and very easy drinking. Great session beer.

dwm1034 (755) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle poured into dollar store tulip. Clear golden yellow with thin head. Some flowery hops but very mild. Crisp and slightly sweet...not your usual Firestone. A little too watery / mild for an APA...good but not great.

bhiner41 (189) - Darien, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2013
There is more to the floral citrus smell and golden hue than actual flavor. It smells great, pine and a back note of citrus but becomes a watered down version of their other pale ales. Good if you are drinking a bunch of these over the course of a day. A bit lacking if you expect a hop note finish, deceptively smooth with no hops lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scipio (852) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is more subtle, but it is enticing. Pine, grapefruit, lemon, and grass. It seems to be more along the line of a mild IPA, only better than your lower grade ones. Taste is quite bitter throughout. Mostly grapefruit with some milder pine. There is a little bit of a soapy taste in there as well, especially at the end. Outside of this, while more simple, its actually pretty tasty. This one is crisp and refreshing. Light in body, with a good amount of lively carbonation. I have to say I enjoyed this. It is mostly straightforward and not very complex, but that is ok. Its a great session beer.
