Think of a hoppier Fat Tire but a lighter body. Not as malty or nutty. Very good. Very drinkable. I would have preferred just a bit more hoppy. Nice aroma like Fat Tire. TheShark (18) - Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
By far my favorite Pale Ale that I have tried thus far. On my Top 10 list for beers that I drink on a regular basis. humann_brewing (22) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2010

Pours well with a nice head. The appearance is clear. The flavor is good with a stong Cascade influence. Definately worth a try! sickboy79 (66) - USA - FEB 4, 2011
Bottle. This is one of my new recent favorites. I was excited to try it after being a big fan of Ranger and Fat Tire. This is a very nice Pale Ale. Has a nice hop aroma with a mix of citrus and sweetness on the head, and finishes with a nice malty character with some hoppy aftertaste. Very nice. I liked it so much the first time, I bought 3 more 6 packs over the past few weeks. Ranger is hoppier/more bitter. This has a sweeter and maltier quality to it. Highly recommended.

Aroma floral and hoppy. Clear light amber good head very fine foam and a good moustache. Flavor a bit bitter and dry hops. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours hazy amber/orange into the glass with white head. Lots of citrus and floral hops on the nose. Taste has a crisp start and a crisp finish. Lots of floral and citrus hop character as well. One of the most well-balanced hoppy brews I’ve had with the hops not overpowering the malt character. This would be a great brew for someone just getting into hoppy beer. superspak (5669) - Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, best before 5/11/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with plenty of bright hop notes with moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor complexity of bright citrus hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a nice malt/hop flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of bright citrus hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pour form a 12oz bottle. Medium amber bodied ale with a thin but persistent off white head. Fine aroma dominated by aromatic hops. Excellent flavor with mellow malitness offset with a complex but pronounced hoppiness. Relatively light in body but with active carbonation to create a satisfying palate. Fine, fine brew, more complex than many a straight pale ale.. wlajwl (6866) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 30, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Label true to its word that it has a hint of honey. Slightly resinous hops that gives a dry edge, not that thick but still very balanced in that the bitterness doesn’t overpower it.
