Draught at the brewery. Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of resin, spice, some earthy hints, peppery. Tastes spicy and bitter with a resiny finish. drpenny (1) - Braintree, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2013 does not count
Unique, clean, refreshing taste. Great balance and flavor. Nice clean finish / pop of flavor tfontana (1014) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Can poured into pint glass from Signal Variety, Plaistow NH. Aroma is strong lemony sweetness (almost like Pledge furniture spray--but in a good way) over malty bread. Appearance is hazy yellow-orange brown with no sparkle and frothy two-finger-width off-white head with attractive lacing. Taste is assertive moderate malty sweet with fruity taste 1st half and mildly bitter second half and dry finish including the citrus from the aroma. Palate is medium bodied with silky smoothness that slides down the throat like teflon. Carbonation adds to the character and calls brief attention to itself with a light zing to the top of the tongue without distracting from the rest. Overall, this exceeded expectations and distinguishes itself in almost every way (appearance is not as unique as other aspects). Am looking forward to my next sip and the other three cans! goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 25, 2002
On tap at the brewery: A good pale ale. Deep golden pour, small white head that laces a little. Aroma is a little citrus, pine, and hops. A well balanced drink, with an initial malty goodness, followed by a nice hop bitterness that lingers on for a bit. johnnnniee (4346) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Newly available in 24 oz cans, very cool.
Pours a deep golden color with a good sized fluffy white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of citrus, grapefruit, lightly toasted malt, a little bready maybe a hint of earthy. Smells like a nicely balanced pale ale. Crisp bitterness right up front followed by some grapefruit and a bit of biscuit. Leaves a long lingering citric tartness after every sip. Very nicely balanced brew. Medium level of carbonation and body. Great little pale ale, I could see lots of these easy drinkers in my future. Now if you could just bring down the price of the Imperial Stouts that you bottled....

GBBF Day 1. Cask. After a frustrating 3 hour wait - the US bar finally opens and is immediately swamped! Clear gold beer, good white head. Sweeitish pale malts. Great juicy tropical fruits. Mild citrus. Modest citric peel bitterness. Great tropicals in this one. First US beer of the day and already the hopping levels are a league above.
Growler. Deep gold/light amber in color with a white head. Aroma of rich bready malt,fruit and citrus hops. Flavor is well balanced between the rich maltiness and the hops. Clean,dry finish and refreshing. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Big can shared 3 ways on brew day. Notes only. Nice floral aroma, good body. Citrus, pine, well balanced. Nice surprise.

Taken from my BA account, reviewed 3/4/12
Massive can into .75L stein thanks to caguiar (Thanks Chris!!)
Appearance; pours a slightly hazy orange copper color, with three fingers of straw colored head... Retention is good, taking several minutes to fall, and lacing is outstanding.
Smell; Peaches, honey and hints of grapefruit
Taste; quite similar to the smell with a bit of a bready quality to balance everything out, just a slight amount of bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel; on the full side of light bodied, with mellow carbonation, goes down fairly smooth, this is a very easy drinkin beer...
Overall; this is an exceptionally easy drinkin beer, i can definitely envision myself drinking this one all day at a party or some similar event, and the low ABV makes it a perfect candidate for doing so. Absolutely would seek this one out again!! davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 8, 2013
24 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber body with two fingers of fluffy white foam. Aroma is heavy on the English hop varietals, floral and sweet caramel malts. Taste is similar with some pine and floral hops and a large caramel malt backbone. Lightly sweet and bitter. Mouth feel is light to medium and easy drinking, which is great given the large size of the can. Probably less of an APA and more of an English style IPA. Overall this was pretty decent.
