drjay44 (3647) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a very thick, well retained, ivory head with extensive lacing, over a clear, dark amber (SRM 15) body.......nose is toasted malts, with cereal, toast, biscuit, light toffee/caramel, light herbal hops, with citrus hints.....taste is slightly sweet, with toffee/caramel tones, leading to a lightly bitter finish, finishing dry, minimal esters.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, mild acid tingle on the finish. This is a slightly less hoppy APA. It is nicely balanced, and sufficiently nuanced in both aroma and flavor. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

Pershing (556) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Clear amber with a frothy beige head. Hardly no visual carbonation in the form of tiny bubbles. Light floral hop aroma. Medium body with a good amount of hop bitterness to match the style. Finishes a little dry.

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a white head. Easy drinking pale ale verging on ipa. Nothing special here really but its not bad.

chinchill (4824) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2014
12 oz bottle served in a goblet. Pours a dark amber color with excellent clarity and a decent head. Has a nice spicy aromka from the hops, but the flavor is a bit too earthy for my tastes.

jake65 (3579) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 25, 2014
Bottle: Pale golden-orange color with a finger of creamy beige head. Nice lacing throughout. I didnt find this to have much of an aroma, light citrus and forals, but the hops flavor brings a nice blend of citrus and florals. Caramel malt in the background and faintly bready.

rmyurick (7) - USA - APR 23, 2014 does not count
Huge white head which fades to 1/2". Aroma is sickly sweet malt with some unrecognizable grassy hops and soap. Taste is like hops candy--sickly sweet to start, very . very bitter finish. Kind of a metallic tang as well. Not my favorite, obvs. Mouthfeel is good if you can ignore the flavor.

Bottle - light copper/medium orange in color with an average head. Light sweet malt flavor with some hoppiness. Medium body.

Crisp and clear with grapefruit and pine, plus caramel sweetness offsetting the light bitterness. Good but nothing special.

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2014
12oz pour. Poured clear amber, nice white fluffy head, and decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is herbal, citrusy, quite hoppy... some malts in there too. Nice balanced taste; Sweet malts and grain combined with a very nice citrus and hop notes.
