Draft at the source. Clear golden amber. Aroma of floralblemongrass. Taste is bitter lemon and flowers. bluejacket74 (1991) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2016
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!

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. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2009

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. kaser (6216) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bright orange pour from a can at O malleys. White head. Mild hops and fruity. Good shit. 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. MrBunn (2807) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2014
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. Definitely an excellent batch of OPA (it can vary). Palate score adjusted from 3 to 4. Overall score adjusted from 13 to 14. 6/4/7/4/14
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.
On tap at Jackie O’s. Pours a slightly hazy light orange with a thin head and nice tropical and resiny hops on the nose. Flavor is light and hoppy with a nice little punch of tropical fruit. Refreshing. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2016
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.
