Can. Pours light gold with a fluffy white head that dissipates to about an inch. Medium carbonation. Aromas of abundant citrus and pine. Flavors are sweet malt, cut grass, pine, citrus and a bit of biscuit. Crisp and hoppy. Lively mouthfeel. Almost too hoppy for a pale ale. This leans more toward an IPA. Otherwise, very nice. kaser (6209) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bright orange pour from a can at O malleys. White head. Mild hops and fruity. Good shit. FROTHINGSLOSH (7667) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a bright yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweet with lemon and catbox. The flavor was tart with cactus and catbox. Long catbox finish. Light body. Not good. riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Solid nose of assertive bittering hops and pale malts a touch of toast and dust. Citrus floral perfume soft pepper. Gold pour with some haze. Oh man the haze - fuck off. Head retention is solid. Flavor is soft bread toasted malts herbal medium citrus forward bitterness dry leafy finish. Mild sweetness. Solid drinkable whatever the hell style it is. Would be better if it were more murk juicy.... Chazz top Brent bottom....

12 ounce can, canned on 08-03-16. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about an inch frothy white head that stayed around for a while with a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrus (lemon) and grassy hops, along with some bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes mainly like citrusy (lemon, grapefruit) and grassy/earthy hops, with a bit of bready malt noticeable. There’s also a lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating with a good amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good enough brew, it’s easy and enjoyable to drink. I won’t have any problems finishing this 6-pack!

12 oz can. I’m finishing up a paper and watching the Olympics. A guy can really work up a thirst watching other people run fast. Clear pale pour with huge rocky head. Good lacing and retention. Aroma: citrus, dust, toast. Taste: light sweetness, assertive bitterness. Palate: light body, average carbonation, oily texture. Overall: refreshing solid light bodied bitter APA. Sorta odd how these styles work. I’d call this a session IPA, but then 5+ % ABV seems a little high for that, so instead of bumping it up to an IPA it goes back into an APA -- but, you know, a hoppy APA. Whatever, still drinks good; would make a fine regular fridge beer. beastiefan2k (3900) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2016
12 ounce can gifted by Chris. Dated August 3rd 2016, which is gosh darn fresh, awesome job Chris. Now, I know that the name Ohio pale ale doesn’t sound very appetizing, which may explain the low ratings, ut it’s pretty damn decent beer. Pours yellow a small head that kind of last around for a while. Aroma is mild beer with very understareted hoppiness - a little green, a little grass, and even a little fruit. nice mix. Flavor is again pretty mild and lightly hoppy it’s like a light golden ale with a hop character that’s not offending but yet very distinct and fun. Short finish and almost no bitterness to speak up pretty damn quaffable if you ask me. This really is a hoppy golden ale and not a pale ale. drsordr (2630) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Draft to taster at Jungle Jim pour light yellow with thin white head. Nose seems off, slight skunky, crystal malt, and light dank hop. Taste some grassy hop, then again, some light funk, like a generic pale lager. Maybe a bad sample, or a miss from otherwise strong brewery. DialSquare (4962) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2015
On tap at Local Cantina in Clintonville: gold pour with white head. hoppy, floral, dank aroma. tastes are pine, grass, soapy. good, straightforward.
