2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is a bit biscuity with hints of soap, fruit, and funk. The appearance is pale gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with both good malts and not so good ones. The hops are there but the bitterness is odd. The palate is thin. I like only the biscuit taste not much else.
Bottle, Total Wine, West Richmond. Pours clear golden with a small off-white head. Aroma is browning leaves, black tea. Flavor is light vanilla, light chocolate, browning leaves, caramel sweetness. Not great, but a little on the interesting side. Larry_Duffman (552) - - FEB 26, 2017
I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours golden with a white head. The aroma is floral hops and fruit. The taste is hops, citrus, and bread. This is nice and drinkable. It doesn’t really stand out. It’s solid though. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-burnt orange/copper color. Finger’s worth of white foamy head. Messy lace.
The aroma starts off with some sweet orange zest, some lemon peel and then some grassy hops. Caramel and toffee malts play with the balance along with some breadiness.
The flavor leans malty sweet with a nice clean taste upon my tongue. Well balanced in the aftertaste and leads well into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine as it is.
Overall, good American pale ale that I could come back to if given the chance. ffaoe (796) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2016

12 oz. bottle dated best by 5/17/16 so assumed to be 6 months old.
Into a tulip
A: Poured mostly clear orange tinted gold with a small tight head. Nice retention and lace. Little carbonation visible.
S: Simple malty roast bread smell. Not much else.
T: A bit of citrus (orange zest?) is quickly overwhelmed by pine. Well balanced light flavors.
M: Light bodied with a slightly resinous short finish. Lightly crisp carbonation.
O: Not much to this but certainly not bad. Typical pale ale flavors with nothing overdone. Overall though, underwhelming.

Pours a clear golden with a fair white head which lingers and laces......aroma of malt, touch of corn, lighter note of sweet malt.....taste is clean start, earthy bittering, tailing off into a slightly rough finish. Fairly nice excepting the finish. yespr (45869) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 13, 2016
From tap. Pours clear ans golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light greasy, pine and grapefruit hoppy. Mild fruity, slight herbal. Bitter, light toasted. Medium dry and slight pine to grapefruity hops finish. phillybass (116) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Terrible aftertaste. Would not order again. At least it's kind of refreshing.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is mostly bready malt with a touch of hops. Medium-light body, taste is a good balance of malt and hops. Finish is fairly clean. Not bad! OnTheTrail (518) - USA - AUG 23, 2015
