4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale orange pour. Not much head from the gentle pour. Aroma is apricot, tangerine. Juicy peach, citrus flavor. Serious bitterness in the back of the mouth. Malt is very quiet, giving precedence to the hops. Soft mouthfeel runs into rocky bitterness. This is exactly what I'm looking for in an APA. Tons of flavor, malt is underplayed, drinkable all day. I see myself drinking lots of this in the future.
Brought by a New England friend on a summer visit. Lovely orange color. Light head. Light nose, light flavor and light palate. Meh. Nice to have a free beer.

Suitably hoppy aroma. Foamy light brown head and colour. Quite bitter and longlasting taste. tfontana (1087) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Can pour into taster cup at One Stop Market 30th Anniversary. Appearance is a dark yellowish brown with effervescent sparkle, small ring of head, minimal lacing. Aroma is more malts than hops, a little musty (but not necessarily in a bad way). Taste is malt dominant with sweet caramel, biscuit and cracker dominating over bitter. Palate is medium bodied with lively carbonation and sweet caramel over bitter finish. Overall, a pale ale that comes down more on the sweet caramel malt side than hoppy bitter. asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
On tap at Black Cow, Newburyport. Classic grapefruit/pine/strawberry hops aroma with a little pale ale malt backbone. Hazy copper under a lasting, off-white sheet that leaves lace. Juicy grapefruit and strawberry hops flavour with medium malt sweetness balanced by a medium, crispifying bitterness that is clean. Notes of strawberry and stone fruit. Medium body, medium carbonation, crisp. drfabulous (8473) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2016
12 ounce can thanks to Chalumeaux. Mildly hoppy fruit forward pale that is decent.

On draft at Anchor Pizza, NBPT. Standard pale ale that had its hop bitterness and malt flavor collapse into each other and create a non-deScript muddle. Slightly sweet and not bitter or hoppy enough for my tastes. Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Can at home in CT. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy, off-white head. The nose holds some crackery pale malts, light tangerine, melon. Light-medium sweet flavor with notes of fruity gummy candies, more melon, peach, bitter citrus rind. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with mellow piney bitterness, dry and lightly crackery pale malts, hay, melon, tangerine. Pretty drinkable pale ale. hayduke (5619) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass amber with a dingy white head. Nose of citrus hops. Medium body. Flavor is again citrus. Bitter finish. Nice APA. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Can thanks to WillRunForBeer. Aroma is citrus peel, toast, and flowers. Tastes very dry. Mild bitterness. Toasted malt and citrus peel mostly. Hops come off a bit stale. Medium body. Easy to drink pale ale. halfonit (1392) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a cloudy amber color. Aroma is of hops, some citrus, some metallic, dusty, and a little pine. Flavor is the same. I little dry but decent stuff.
