Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep-amber/copper colored brew with a big white head. The head is billowy and fades over a few minutes to leave some decent lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is largest of a strong bready aroma. Mixed with this aroma are some aromas of a grapefruit hop as well as a lighter pine smell. Rather nice.
Taste – The taste starts with a bready flavor mixed with a light caramel sweetness and some grapefruit hop. The grapefruit grows stronger and is accompanied by some more floral hop tastes. As these come to light, the sweetness begins to fade. As the taste advances more toward the end, a pine taste then comes to the tongue. In the end a slightly bitter and bready flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average side in its thickness with a carbonation level that is rather low. The body is decent for the flavors and the session style of the brew, but a higher level of carbonation would have made it more “session” like.
Overall – A pretty tasty brew. It had a good hop taste profile with a decent balance of the taste, as there was a lighter sweetness and some bready flavors mixed with the hop.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Easy drinking pale. Slightly sweet but with enough hop bitterness to balance it out. A good dinner beer. robforbes (2282) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2013

Pours clear brown, rotten fruit aroma..taste is hopps and hints of caramel and grass... Not bad at all Arayaga2 (2224) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Caramel brown with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet citrusy hops and graham crackery malt. Taste is the same, and the carbonation is mild (I’d like just a bit more), but this is a very flavorful and drinkable session beer, though I’m sure that some will object to calling it that. $2/12oz

Bottle pours murky brown with a thin tan head and massive amounts of carbonation causing a gusher. Smells and tastes old and infected. Citrus butter bomb. Not pleasant. shadey (2174) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy melon orange with a quickly diminishing head of tight white bubbles. A small cake of head is all that remains inside of a ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma is floral and piney. Flavors are spicy bitterness from front to back. Not bad. mcox90 (2169) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 29, 2013
12 oz bottle from jcwattsrugger, thanks John. Pours to the darker side of amber/orange with a thin white head. Nice floral hop aroma. Touch of rye in the flavor, but mostly more floral hop with a bit of bready malt. Medium bodied with a quick bitter finish. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
I think this was one of the smoothest and enjoyable Pale Ales that i have had. Nice in color and pour with a great head that laced well. Aroma was of floral hops and taste was semi sweet malt with a great hop balance. Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Bottle pour. Aroma is fruity, sweet and known maltiness. Taste is very clean fruitiness, some citrus with a 50/50 malt presence. Ok.
