Draft - part of sampler at brewery. Pours an amber/brown color with a normal-sized slightly off-white head. Aroma is malts, grass and citrus. Flavor is much the same. Pretty balanced IMO. Quite drinkable. tjthresh (1875) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 17, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Dark orange or amber with an off white head. Decent citrus aroma and flavor with bisuity malt. Mild bitterness and dry finish. Kind of Dale’s light. User37895 (3042) - - MAY 2, 2008
On draft at the brewpub. A pretty plain and straight forward pale ale. Typical appearance, decent head and lacing. Aroma of grains and citrus/floral hopping. Flavors followed but the malt seemed to have a bit of wheat in there, the finish certainly accentuated by bittering hops too. Overall, the flavor was a bit too weak and the mouthfeel watery/thin (wanted more out of this), but an ok drinker ahead of the Flyers’ game 4 W over Les Habs. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Tap, poured a dark orange color with a medium white head. Initial flavor has a nice bite to it, with a bitterness more akin to an IPA than a regular pale ale. The bitterness dies away and the flavor becomes a bit more subdued. A nice selection that I enjoyed. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Pours an orange-ish with a creme head. Minimal nose. Flavor is nice and hopped. Definitely a hop heads delight. But it’s definitely not a hop bomb though. Just comes at you in a firm fashion. Leaves a lasting impression in the mouth. Very nice drinker.

This beer has a nice burnt orange body topped off with a huge off white headwhich remains through the whole beer. The aroma has the citrus aroma of cascade hops with a bit of lemon, lime, and grapefruit. The flavor has a bit of a floral taste on the front end with orange and an iced tea flavor on the finish.

Pours a clear orange color into the lager glass. Scents of pine and grass dominated the nose. The taste was mostly hoppy with grassy, piney notes and not much of a malt backbone. A decent pale ale on tap. Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft pint at the brewpub. Reddish amber with a thin head. Full-on aroma of piney hops. Drinks with a bit of a soapy quality, the malt not quite full enough to hang on to the hop astringency that gets more and more earthy as it warms. Fun beer.

Clear orange/copper color. Citrus floral aroma. The taste was the same with bitter floral hop finish.
