On tap at the Great Dane Brew Pub (Downtown Madison Location). Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of citrus (oranges), and some caramel. Grapefruit finish. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Sopay, viney hop aroma - not bad just bitter as opposed to floral or juicy. The flavor further enhances the dry hop element with grapefruit zest and unripe strawberries. Crisp finish with a mineral dryness. A quenching, crisp pale ale. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
On tap @ the brewpub (downtown): Pours a hazy copper color with a white head. Aroma, oranges and citrus hops, some pale malts. Flavor, citrus hops and caramel/pale lighter malts. Pretty good. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2007
Chicago Trip. Sunday 20:34. Sample tray. Dark amber. Light hop aroma and flavours. Very mild for style. Some lingering hop finish. madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2007
Draft at the Dane County Regional Airport Great Dane. Poured amber with a thin off white head. Good balance in the aroma, citrus hops, some earthiness. Taste is more of the same, a little bit of bitterness. Solid APA.

Draft at the brewpub. Poured a hazy orange brown color. Head was thin, off white, and left some good lace. Attractive aroma of grapefruity hops, toffee, and malty caramel. Subdued hop bitterness up front with buttery caramel, toffee, and grapefruit flavors. This was my favorite of their offerings. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - JAN 7, 2007

Pours a cloudy amber with medium-thin white head and thin lacing. Aroma bursts with caramel suppoted by gentle citrus hops. Citrus is almost absent in the flavor at first, leaving an earthy, chalky, dry piney flavor. The grapefruit/citrus does start to come out as the beer warms but never provides (in my estimation) ideal balance against the bitter dryness. Still, this is a well-crafted beer that goes down with a medium-thick palate.
(Tap) Pours a hazy light amber with almost no head. The well balanced medley of hops really awakens all of the senses. Some light citrus notes, and a underlying malty foundation. A solid APA. I’ll be back for some more of this! SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 22, 2006
#931, On tap at the brewery while on a trip thanks to the University of Wisconsin. Hazy copper with no head, nose is hoppy and crisp. Taste is hoppy and fairly malty. Nice balance. Good. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2006
On-tap the brewpub: A murky peachy orange with a soft medium capping of dirty tanned foam. Lacing is skimmpy and spotty.
Aroma is soft, a slight sweetness of pale orange and some dulled toasted grain and dough.
Slender, smooth taster with a firm roundedness of paled malt with a semi orangey jam mixed with bread dough. Tender and easy going with just a nudge of citrusy hoppyness playing a nice little undertone to it keeping it interesting. Firm, slightly toasty edge with its carbonation at first then fades some as it warms. Simple, low finish with only a whisp of citrus floating about the buds.
Feel is just under a medium body, smooth, easy, tender, and semi fluffy in texture, the hazy color makes me come to the conclusion that its unfiltered, so the texture tends to give that impression as well. Not quite sure though and didn’t ask.
More of an English style taste to it then APA that its labeled. Good either way ya drink it.
