The pour is a clear, orangey, golden color with a fairly small, white, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing. The nose is very floral, some resins, orangey citrus, and some biscuits. The flavor is decidedly more passive with more biscuity notes, the citrus becoming almost limey, and slight resins. The palate is lively, light to medium, lightly crisp, and drying slightly. The finish carries a moderate bitterness, a limey citrus, and biscuits still. A fairly easy drinking, hop forward, session pale. The hop notes were pleasant but simple and the biscuit notes were a bit too overwhelming. Not bad for a <5% pale but fairly pedestrian.

Nice floral hop aroma. Pours a golden yellow, white head. Satisfyingly hoppy, with a nice bitter finish. A good pale.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - MAR 23, 2006
had this on the beach in PB. surprised by the golden color that it had as much hoppy character. sligt citrus nose carries through to the palate with more fresh hops. balanced well. better then i thought it would be. served a little too warm in a plastic cup that looked like glass??

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, bready malt and some tropical fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal hops, pale malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Very good overall.

On draft. Clear golden color with one finger white head. Floral aroma. Floral and a little citrus on the taste. Ends dry. A pretty good beer.

Thisis12ptfont (1129) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Strong hops on the nose with some crisp bread-like malts behind it. Light gold in color with a fast dissipating foam. Assertive hops greet the palate followed by a steady caramel and biscuit malt flavor. Overall, this is a well done pale ale. Simple yet, assertive and balanced. Id give this a B rating.

agl108 (1125) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2009
12 oz. bottle at TJs. Poured hazy gold. Extremely smooth and light, crisp citrus hoppiness. More characteristic of an extra pale ale. Was expecting a little bit more from these guys but this one is very sessionable at least.

Hangover (1123) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Clear amber color, with no lasting head. Very fresh and hoppy aroma with a nice whiff of oranges. More orange in the taste, as well as a few floral notes. Active carbonation on the tongue, with some maltiness towards the finish, along with the advertised vanilla, albeit barely discernable. Fantastic finish. Very clean, very nice. I would actually recommend seeking this out if you are a fan of pale ales... probably one fo the best session beers I have yet to drink. Incredibly quaffable.
