Pours a clear, light orange with a good-sized head. Floral hops with a bit of spice and some caramel malt character on the nose as well. Biscuit and toffee. Nice medium-high carbonation. Grassy, bitter finish. A very nice pale, and I’m not the biggest fan of most. Evolutionary (542) - Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle from Ty. Nose is dry as well as taste. Some malt feel to balance hop bitterness. Not much sweetness. Good with spicy food.

Straight from the bottle at a wedding reception. Fairly typical pale ale--medium body, good carbonation, floral hoppy finish but not too overpowering. Solid overall. Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Dark brassy color with a standard pale ale fragrance. Hoppy yet sweet at the same time. Clean finish with little aftertaste. Not bad at all. Furseth (2165) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2006

Dark yellow body, with a medium white foam.Lots of hops in the aroma. Lots of dry hops mouth feeling, and a long bitter finish. Full body. A werry nice beer!!

12 oz bottle. Poured a really beautiful medium dark amber with a big white head, mostly diminishing. Floral hoppy nose with dry herbs, green apple, honey. Some malted waffle and sweet butter. Initial flavor is a pleaant light bitterness. Some light sweetness and faint maltiness. Light to medium bodied with a creamy texture. Medium carbonation; bitter, metallic finish. Really good.

Pours deep amber. Aroma of hops and apple. Opens with a malty sweetness in a well-rounded body. Quite pronounced floral hops in the finish. This is my new favorite pale ale. I agree with the other reviewers, this is definitely an APA, not an EPA. HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2006
As soon as I poured this one I thought it smelled like Sierra Nevada with its floral hop aroma. It has a real nice balance of hops followed by malty sweetness and a dry hop bitterness at the finish leaving the palate tingling with hoppiness for a few minutes. I thought the taste was more piney than citrus making this beer a perfect match for the style. Very enjoyable, like every other beer these guys make. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a nice copper amber color, with a light tan head of about half an inch. The foam dies back in a little while, leaving just a ring. Not too much in the way of lacing. Medium malty and slightly floral hops in the aroma.
Nice mild caramel in the malt, balanced by some citrus and floral hoppiness. Very smooth, medium bodied, tasty, and moderately carbonated. Long dry rye, sweet malt, and tangy hops aftertaste is very pleasant. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2007
On tap at HDG. Deep orange hazy in color with a nice medium sized off white head. Hoppy citrusy nutty aroma. Caramel malty notes. Grassy, earthy hops. Malty hoppy flavor. Medium bodied. Bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing. Nice beer.
