Smells of bitter pine. Nice gold clean appearance. Very powerful hops taste. One of my favorite ipas due to the intense hops taste. BeerInHeaven (467) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2014 Re-rating. It deserves an upgrade from my already positive review. Pours a medium, slightly cloudy gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine. The citrus really comes through in the taste. Definite grapefruit character. A fresh bright taste, fruity but not too sweet. Goes down with a pleasant hoppy kick. As with other good pale ales, I really enjoy the hoppy nasal linger. Great beer! My personal favorite from New Glarus. pkbites (970) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 29, 2011
Slightly dark yellow pour with whitish head. Some pretty good lacing on the glass. Nose of grapefruit. Flavor of grapefruit, pine, and floral hops. Nice bitter aftertaste. It tastes much more complex than the average Pale Ale. TimE (6076) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2011
Tasted like Orange Pekoe tea. Light hoppy and refreshing. not to everyone like I think, but found it enjoyable enough. portableparty (2380) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 Bottle to snifter. Pours clear and bright gold orange with a nice white soapy head that dissipates to a spotty film. Aroma is really nice and bright floral and citrus hops with subtle grassy malt. Taste is bitter and dry bread with nice malt and grain grass all around. Palate is thin and clean and finishes chalky and dry. Very nice pale ale.

Killer aroma for an American Pale. Sweet and round and chewy like Orange Slice candy. Nicely balanced in such that it has wonderful hop notes but isn’t biting my tongue like some can. It poured golden with an orange hue and produced a pretty minimal head. I enjoyed this. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
Bottle at Cole’s, from a Maudite glass. Not YY Maudite glass, but one identical to it... in theory. Shared with Cole. Pours clear gold; thin white head, soft lacing. Nose is grapefruit, persimmon, mandarin and navel oranges, peaches, nectarines, and light pine. An absolutely magnificent nose. Flavours of peach, grapefruit, mandarin, and miscellaneous tropical fruits. Phenomenal fruit and balance. A milestone beer for me. Just heart-stopping, fabulous, stuff.

Bottle. Clear gold yellow color, carbonation is strong. Nice floral hop aroma and solid assertive bitter taste. A good full tasting pale ale. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours a deep golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma is rich with citrus fruit and floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt, citrus, floaral hops, pine, earth, and resin. Very hoppy flavor but not overly bitter. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very good Pale Ale.
