12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/19/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon/orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale ale. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering. Drake (13724) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2015

Cloudy medium tan with a creamy head. Vanilla and citrus on the nose. Strong grapefruit and orange up front with dry hops that follow and linger. A very good beer.

Keg @ Beer Run, Charlottesville. Brilliant gold pour with a creamy white head. Attractive beer. Aroma is fairly light, summery. Fresh lemon, a bit of shortbread and dried grass. Easy going pale malt. Lightly sweet. Dry grassy bitter balance. Pretty straightforward, little development. Light body, fine carbonation. Totally solid stuff. zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Aromas of light fresh hops and some minor citrus and veggie notes. Light beige head and light orange body. Spicy hop bitterness and some flavors of orange rind and earthy undertones. Crisp on the palate.

Light piney aromas, subtle bread. Clear burnt orange with a mostly lasting white head. Dry, very well balanced. Light bodied, very crisp. beer-yum (1703) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 15, 2015
Impressive citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance and a sustained fruity/bitter finish makes it a great introduction to the more aggressive West Coast IPAs. rollinsr (745) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 13, 2015
Pours Amber with thin filmy head. Aroma is earthy pine citrus with crisp fruit character. Sticky hops but smooth and sweet nutty caramel character off the palate.

Pours a light apple juice color with a thick frothy cap that settles to 1 finger. Aromas of fruity (apricots)and citrusy hops up front with some floral notes behind that, some light caramel maltiness as well. Flavor is a bit maltier, with some caramel sweetness up front to go along with the fruity and floral hop notes. A light sweetness continues into the finish. Overall its a nice, balanced APA that is easy to drink. " demitriustown (1192) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2015
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice floral citrus hop note with a light sticky pine resin note to it. There is not a lot of malt in this one, but we’ll see in the taste. Appearance is a clear golden with a thick white head that lingers around for quite a while. Taste has got a nice pungent hop note upfront with a resin like mouth fell and a really nice overall taste to it. Palate is medium to low carbonation with a nice after taste. Overall, good stuff. Cheers!
