Taster. Pale golden hue with white head. Nicely balanced hop and malt profile. Citrus and floras... Tasty. arminjewell (9676) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, grain, orange and pine into a bit of grassy note with a touch of caramel. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, some orange into some pine, slight caramel, finishing fairly bitter. A bit light, but pretty decent.

From file last updated 2010. Bottle. Pour dark gold/white head. Roast malt aroma with hop. Bitter. Good. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a clear gold body that supports a booming billowing off white head. Uh oh. Not a good start to this rate. The aroma offers up lemon and lime tartness as well as sweeter citrus and malty notes. It doesn’t taste as messed up as it looks. I get bitter grapefruit and lemon citrus flowing quickly into malt sweetened tangelo. Amid the bitter citrus it gets a tad juicy even just as the pale ale almost biscuit maltiness bubbles to the surface. This is pretty nice even in poor shape as this is. SNL (791) - - MAY 31, 2014
Served in bottle.
Nose with a lot of citrus, taste a hoppy with flowery notes. Surprised by the fruity flavour. Long bitter finish. Very IPA like.
Average carbonation, medium body. ben4321 (6514) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 3/3/14, as Doc’s Pale Ale

Aroma: The aroma is mild but solid, some citrus, pine, and floral hop notes
Appearance: The pour is a clear orange-gold color with a small head and good lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, light sweet, with a clean medium hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, clean and drinkable, with a nice, dry finish
This is a solid, enjoyable, balanced example of the style. Not a standout, just a nice beer. Certainly worth trying.
On tap at Oak Creek. Pours clear yellow with a small white head. Nose is citrus, caramel, malt. Flavor is balanced malt and hops, but not much else going on. Light bodied.
