4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden amber with a fairly frothy white head that leaves nice lacing down the glass. Scent is caramel maltiness with a nice citrusy hop presence. Flavor is sweet and malty with a fairly assertive hop presence at the end. Some carbonation and a bit light on the body. Overall a well balanced pale ale.
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear copper color and a thick white head. Aroma is a little pine, a little malt, and a hint of citrus. Initial taste is pine, floral, rye?, and caramel malt to balance things out. Aftertaste is a light pine bitterness. A creamy medium body with just enough carbonation. A great pale ale that doesn’t go too far. Well-balanced and drinkable. jksipa (956) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
On tap at Great Lakes CLE. Clear medium copper with a small short lived white head leaving patchy lace. Light caramel with some pine and citrus but nothing standing out. Flavour has the light sweet malt base with a medium bitterness. Mouth is medium- and slick with average carbonation and a fading bitter finish. Didn’t quite live up to expectations.

Very pleasant, drinkable pale ale. Smooth enough to go down easy but had just the right amount of flavor and bite. markas101 (2468) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2017

Absolute most satifying beer on the planet. The only way to have it better is to go to the brewry. Delish!!! GenDV138 (7285) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2016
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of malt, citrus. Tastes of big malt, light citrus. Medium body with a dry finish. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Mostly clear orange color with two fingers of white head and great lacing. Aroma is a mix of malt, herbal notes and a hint of citrus. Taste is similar. Malty notes up front with some caramel, then herbal and earthiness from the hops with a mild floral bitterness. Finishes dry with slight lingering bitterness. Medium/full bodied with medium carbonation. Well balanced with a nice hop character that accents flavors other than fruit.
