Big thanks to AgentZero for sending this awesome extra my way A: Pours a hazy bright orange color with a frothy white cap. Retention is pretty nice...looks hoppy S: Big resin and pine notes come through followed by a subdued caramel sweetness. Lots of citrus (orange and lemon) are apparent as it warms T: The taste is strikingly similar to Sculpin in a few ways. Resin, pine, citrus with a big bitterness, especially for the style. Malts do a good job of balancing and provide a little sweetness and caramel as well as bread. MF/O: The body seems a little thin at times, carbonation is mild and a little prickly. The finish is bitter resin/pine and that unique yeast that reminds me of Sculpin Awesome Pale Ale, really drinkable...wish this was distributed in my area

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2012
(Bottle) Pours cloudy deep golden with an off white head. The aroma holds green hop notes of passion fruit, strawberry jam, green mango, apricot, soft pine, subtle herbs, light flowers and touch of grass. Malty tones of doughy bread and a whisper of light toasted caramel. Clean, juicy and bright on the nose. The flavour is light sweet t dry, medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of green, citric, fruity, floral, resinous and sweaty hops alongside slim and bready malt. Touch of honey. The mouthfeel is super soft and light watery with a light carbonation. Light astringent, tea-like afterbitterness. Light bodied.

440 ml can received as an extra in a trade. Thanks pandableh! Pours hazy vibrant orange with a frothy and slightly fizzy offwhite head that is rather slow to dissipate while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is hoppy fresh, fruity, floral and tiny herbal with passion fruit, slightly dry grass, strawberry jam, unripe mango, bread, lemon balm, pine, dried flowers, orange peal, dew and hints of caramel and parsley. Taste is bitter, herbal, slightly floral and tiny fruity with grapefruit juice, moist grass, lemon balm, dill, bread, unripe strawberries and raspberries, pine needles, unripe rock hard peaches, mineral rich spring water, orange peal and and gooseberries. Mouthfeel is soft, slightly watery, slightly dry, tiny astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter and herbal with grapefruit rinds, lemon balm, dill, freshly cut grass, parsley, crackers, unripe tropical fruits and hints of wet stone. Great hoppy fresh smell supported by a very light slightly lacking body.

Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - SEP 13, 2012
Can pours slightlt cloudy light orange with bubbly white head. Pleasant aroma of citrus and pine. Taste slight citrus and sweetness followed by moderate hops. Hoppy but not overbearing finish. Medium tingly palate with carbonation. Alcohol not noticeable.

Expected more hops but this is really pretty easy-drinking beer.

nsquishee (641) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Very solid, hoppy pale ale. Crisp, grassy hops linger with citrus notes and sweet, medium intensity malts. I would drink this as a go to beer.

Pours cloudy yellow. Aromas of underbrush, grass, and patchouli. Very big, very hoppy palate with robust earthy flavors and a strong finish.

Had this on tap at Millers Pub in Chicago. Full, tangy, cloudy, smooth, nicely balanced, good hops, very tasty. Bought some at Binnys to bring home -- 4-pack 16-oz. cans ... Good, but not as good as the draught. Still, good stuff.
