On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear light amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and caramel. Taste is tropical fruits and caramel malt. Uncomplicated but very tasty!
Pint on tap. Mostly clear orange-copper with a lasting film of bubbles. Nose is resin, green herb and orange. Tastes the same with some metallic notes. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a decent balance. deyholla (12590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a grayish head that dissipates completely. Aroma has an earthy combination of earthy pine and grass with a solid grain backbone. Flavor has a nice earthy pine with some underlying nice sweet grain. jcr (2784) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Draft. Cloudy deep gold/orange. Dense, off-white head. Aroma of orange, citrus, raw hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Earthy, raw hop flavor. Taste of citrus, orange, dough. Standard fare. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - APR 21, 2013
Growler. Consumed same day. This would be a decent hoppy pale ale, except for the fact that it is virtually flat.

Pours a mostly translucent copper with a smaller white head. Aroma of citrus, mango and light caramel malt. Flavor is dry and hoppy. Really well done pale ale. The citrusy and tropical fruit hop notes shine. Some bready malt poking through. mdntklrmth (34) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Ah, Free State. I'm proud to have you in my back yard. This beer is nice. Simple. Damn simple. Not a lot of malts thrown at you and not a lot of hops. And the simplicity works. Light straw-amber in color and brilliantly clear, this beer goes down great after a mountain bike ride. Clean tasting and some slightly fruity hop character, this beer is not too bitter. It's refreshing. I'd call it a pale ale even though it's classified as an IPA. ads135 (5215) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 22, 2012
Very good pale ale. I wish this was available more often. Pungent hop aroma. Pours golden yellow. Tangy and delightful. LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of floral hops and bready malt. Flavor is very very bready with a bitter hops finish. Pleasantly drinkable and an interesting pale ale.

Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Caramel cereal grain and earthy hops aroma and taste with a pungent bitterness.
