Growler... Cloudy dirty-orange pour with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The nose offers spicy, citrusy and tropical galaxy hops flanked by a light note of funky armpit musk from ridiculously heavy dry-hopping. Even cascade hops smell more like body odor than grapefruit and pine when dry-hopped too heavily. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor and finish are both bitter and dry. Enjoyable overall. Fresh growler shipped my way by BriceNice! swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Draft at coles, buffalo. Very solid pale ale. Medium bodied. Flavorful pale, juicy bitterness, citrusy, light grass. Well done ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Draught at the brewery, 6/4/16. egajdzis (6777) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Gentle, but thoroughly hazy golden body has a strong peach-apricot hue and a big white head that is well-retained.
Huge nectarine-orange aromatics are juicy and there’s a touch of grapefruit pith to keep it balanced. Very minor honey with a touch of biscuit from the malts easily balance the hop character, and it feels incredibly fresh, lush and with a floral-spice character not often found with this hop. Tangerine juice-like finish with modest acidity and no alcohol or flaw.
Pillowy malts belie the low gravity and tickle the palate as the hop-infused liquid goes down. Moderate bitterness balances and there’s a wonderfully gentle peach-nectarine character with stronger tangerine/orange juice components. One of the "softest" textures I’ve seen in a beer, which isn’t always easy for such a low gravity beer. No resin and perfectly balanced and juicy. Like a NE IPA-lite. Very memorable.
Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruits, some citrus, floral, and pine. Taste of juicy citrus, pine, resin, lighter malts, and a hoppy finish. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Growler from the brewery. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, melon, honeydew, some light ginger hints. Tastes of dry malt, some floral hints, grassy, earthy with a touch of bitter citrus on the finish. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 32oz growler poured into a tulip. Pours cloudy amber/golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops, plus a nice light caramel/pale maltiness. Flavor the same with a lot of galaxy hops and the perfect maltiness to balance it out. Average texture. A good pale ale. Ron (4219) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2013
EDIT 4/7/14: Still hazy copperish. Aroma of a lot of fruity hops and light malts. Very nice.
On tap at the Old Toad. Great hoppy/citrus aroma and a nice crisp dry and lightly bittered pale ale with a lot of hop character like a IPA. koleminer20 (4091) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2016
On draft at NEBCO. The pour is a hazy light gold color with a light white head that leaves some solid soapy lace behind. The aroma is nice and citrusy. There is a great bright grassy hop happening that I really like. Light bitter and sweet fruit on the back end. The flavor is similar. Great citric grassiness up front with a lingering sweet hop. It’s crisp and clean. I’m a fan. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a great carbonation and a lingeringly bitter, very juicy fruit hop on the back. Nicely done.

Growler shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.
The beer is golden with a mild haze and a thin white head. The aroma offers dank citrus, grapefruit, oranges. Citrus up front with some delicate bitterness in the back. Dry and clean finish. Tangy with a mild tartness. Very tasty.
