Light in color but not in hop presence. The citrusy sweet hop presence makes this beer a gateway to the world of hops.

Dogbrick (11879) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Sample at Liberty Tavern. The beer is a clear golden-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Fruit, hops and malt aroma. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, fruit and malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short fruity hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

PorterPounder (7542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Boardman, OH - Vintage Estate Wine and Beer - 12 oz can. The head has an obnoxious thickness to it that takes a good five minutes to settle down, the color is medium golden and hazy. Aroma has some light spruce accents, some grassiness. Decent pale ale flavor with some light citrus bitterness, some raw cookie dough sweetness, a hint of spearmint spiciness. Nice crispness to the mouthfeel.

EithCubes (5649) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Can. Pour is yellow golden, hazy with a large and uncontrollable foamy off-white head, tons of visible carbonation bubbling up. Nose is mostly citrus, in-mouth confirms a few saison-like elements, grainy and sunny with a little alcohol in with the aggressive carbonation (its hot, actually), white grapes and white wine, medium resin, paper, low caramel and I keep thinking theres wheat here. Sweet, lemon, very grassy (Pils-levels). Yeast is more than a little dirty and the hops are a little raw. Body has a touch of creaminess to it, medium with a hint of chalk. Bold and lively, to be sure. [2016.09.02: 2.9]

Lowe1983 (1530) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pine hops and caramel malts. Slightly watery at first but gives way to the stronger pine hops. Slightly bitter finish.

Shot (477) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Can. Pours hazy gold with a creamy head that dissipates to a thin lace. Good cling. Abundant floral hop aroma, cut grass, citrus. Flavors of sweet malt, citrus, cut grass, biscuit. Resiny hop finish. Dry and crisp. Clean mouthfeel--slightly oily. This leans in the direction of a Pilsner, but with more of a malt backbone. Really very nice.

mambossa (310) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2016
Can. Gently hazy straw gold with mild head. Nose is some sharp, lemony, sour cream grass, bread and paste. Flavor exhibits the same creamy goat-cheese milky tartness with citrus rind and green bell pepper, bit of young spruce and tangerine. Very high-noted and tart-milkiness. Maybe (probably) not a fresh can. Still an alright pale ale, but a lot of cheesy tart notes happening here, mostly on the nose. Flavor exhibits more intentional juicy and piney characteristics which are desirable. Not entirely sure about this one.

RRistow12 (741) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2016
Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma is nice citrus burst. Mouthfeel is too thin and not very bitter. Mild bitterness with moderate sweetness. Flavors of caramel, crackers, citrus fruit. Overall a below average pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
