On tap at the brewery. Hazy gold pour, white head with lots of nice lacing. It’s a good, clean pale ale with a hop bite at the end. Kind of classic to the style. Glad to see this place in our old neighborhood. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2015
Can shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, tropical fruit and earthy hop. Malty flavor with tropical fruit accents before a grassy hop finish. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 12, 2015
This was on tap and poured into a mug.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange to amber color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. A light stringy lacing settles around the glass.
The smell had a sweet and lightly spiced semi-peppery aroma running under a sweet maltiness.
The taste pretty much copied the smell and carried a slight spice into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty nice APA that I would definitely have again. mnurda (1285) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2016 Shared 12 oz. cans, poured to snifters showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a presentable head of soft white foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose started with some basement dankness, then earthiness & pulp, with maybe a bit of citrus as orange. Light to medium bodied, the taste provided a very lingering, earthy, rind-like, and dry hop bitterness propelled by lively carbonation. Not enough mellowing malt to take the edge off. So much better on tap, as a recent shaker-full at Pizzeria Pezzo in White Bear Lake, MN.. Lightly hazed, with a sudsy head, fruitier nose as tropical fruit, grapefruit, and pineapple, medium bodied, and pronounced, citrus & rind bitterness that was lingering, but more palate friendly. +.5
