A nice hop profile for an american pale. Getting a bit of citrus and orange peel in the nose. Flavor is smooth and balanced with a nice grapefruit bitter finish. A decent body and overall very nice drink. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2010
12oz Bottle. Thanks Kevin! Strong floral citrus and pine nose, heavy on the C hops. Pours a clear copper and orange with a nice, super-lacey rim of white. Flavors are crips and rich. Nice strong malt backboned with some carameled nuance. Hops flavors and bitterness are great. Snappy, leafy, and bright. A really great, flavorful pale ale. Balanced. Exemplary for the style, in my opinion. UnDecaf (106) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Very nice floral taste without really any sweetness to it and a medium body. Holtguy (178) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2010 Bottle bought at some convenience store in Avon, NY. Copper pour with white head. Decent lacing. This is a crisp pale ale, with fresh citrusey flavor and aroma, with a bit of bitterness but not a whole lot. Excellent malt balance. I really, really, really, really, really enjoyed this brew. One of the best Pale Ales I’ve ever had. It’s not an IPA masquerading as a PA or anything. This would be my go-to Pale Ale if they sold it in stores near me.

draft @ Coles, Buffalo, NY. deep copper color with pleasant hopped filled aroma. taste is full of balanced hop bitterness initially but just drops off into a mild finish. solid flavor, good bitterness. good APA JFGrind (2066) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2010
No real hop nose, malts dominate the aroma, grapefruit hop flavor comes out in the body. Description suggests sweet malts...my palate missed that. There is a balance of hop & malt, decent lacing and a bit of pepper thrown in the flavor too. williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2010
2007: Light and clear orange-amber color. Decent stubborn finger of foamy head. Quite clear. Leaves just a bit of lace.
Pleasant pale malt. Hoppier than most pales, quite nice, though nothing remarkable; it’s good enough.
Flowery, estery *mild* hops. Dry, biscuity malt. It’s very ordinary, but a pretty good value.
A nice, dry, slightly bubbly pale. Ordinary, pale as it should be, competent. A good deal overall.

What a pale ale should be. A good balance of medium bodied sweet malt flavor which blends into a slight bitter hop ending. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2010
There is the subtle aroma of wheat and hops, but not much. The hops come at the end with some bitterness no sweetness at all. It pours a little darker, more amber than golden. It’s okay, but not great.
