Sampled on draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of butter notes and leafy hops. The taste is earthy hops, butter, caramel and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Too much butter... hopefully this is a bad batch. BeerandBlues2 (13323) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 14, 2013

Draft at Jackie-O’s. Pours a pale, clear gold with a small white head. Notes of pale malts, light orange citrus, florals, and grass. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, lightly bitter mouthfeel. Very light, simple pale ale. Nice. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 Golden-orange appearance, light to decent head. Nice hops aroma, but more watery tasting than I prefer. Nice crisp texture, though. Short aftertaste. JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Re-rate on 4/10/2012: On tap. Mildly hazy yellow-orange color. Good, thin white head, leaving good lace. Great light bitter taste. Awesome satisfying hops here. Nice crisp carbonation, dry texture.

Update rate, 10/21/15: On tap at Dutch’s. Keg filled 9/9. Hazy orange color. Bigger off-white head. Awesome balance of citrusy, mild peppery hop, and bready malt. Hoppy, but not too bitter, assertive, or biting like some hoppy pale ales can be. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, mild dry finish. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Great, perfectly balanced, satisfying smooth and easy-drinking pale ale.
