Appearance: Served a clear, light copper-orange body with a scant, wispy white head and some steady if sporadic effervescence. Sheet-like lacing on the way down. shadey (2166) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Smell: Modest nose scented of lightly toasted bread, caramel, spicy rye, citrus fruits, and wet, soggy grains.
Taste: Lightly bready malts, lightly sweet and with some touches of grain, caramel, and zestful rye malt. Lightly earthy hops also delivering some fruity touches of oranges and lemons. Sufficiently bitter. A skosh more lemon on the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Well-balanced and keenly drinkable, without ever giving too much or too little maltiness or aimlessly wandering into being an IPA with excessive bitterness. A good replacement of Jackman’s. Good-bye and good riddance, Jack.
12oz bottle. Bright gold pour with no head. Aroma is sweet and citrus with bright fruit notes. Flavors are much the same. A really interesting and tasty pale. Delicious and under-rated. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013

On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy gold/amber with a small creamy white head. Very interesting sweet fruity and flowery hop aroma with some green apples as well. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter fruity hops, reminds me of the good british ipa, nothing over the top, just good all over.

Mild floral citrus aroma. A mild hazy yellow with a touch of amber.Citrus and bitter taste that finishes off clean and dry. Has a pepper rye feeling in the middle. Hint of malt sweetness. A little different than is typical for this style. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2012

12oz bottle poured into a Shaker at 41°. Color is bright gold with light carbonation and a very thin head. Aroma is a nice fruity hop scent. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor of mild roasted malt and caramel, then some floral hops show with a mild bitterness. In the after taste the bitterness hangs on with a fruity hop taste coming out. Overall its a very good American Pale Ale.
