Sampled at the taproom. Golden pour, some hints of rust throughout. Medium sized white head, decent lacing. Aroma is comprised of honey, malts, floral hops and some grassy notes. Doesn’t smell bad. Taste is pretty similar, hops and malts dominant. Could stand being a bit more hoppy, but honestly it’s not bad. Medium bodied, oily palate. Finish is medium length and spicy, then sweet. Their second best beer by a good margin, but still just pretty average in the grand scheme. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draft at Fiddler’s Green. Pours a clear, medium golden body with high carbonation. Large, foamy white head with decent retention. Sheet lacing. The aroma is fairly standard, showing pale caramel malts, lightly toasted grains and mild floral hops. The flavor falls along those same lines, with a fairly good amount of balance. The medium body added to what was actually a pretty smooth, easy drinking beer. Better than I was expecting, but lacking originality. A little boring, but quite drinkable.

Draft. Pours transparent golden with a soapy white head. Subtle aroma of malts and a bit of herbal hops. Smooth, watery taste that is nicely balanced. Minor hop flavor and some bitterness. Pretty mediocre but smooth and easy to drink. elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours clear golden color. Medium bodied. Full of hops. Pretty tasty for a IPA. Bought a keg of this for a party, then returned the keg 6 months later and charged me 120 dollars. My bad. jcwattsrugger (12579) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2006
on tap-pours a white head and gold color. Aroma is funky, yeasty, medium citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops, medium malt, crisp. OK carbonation. Had these (this one and others) at the brewery, something amiss. 3.1-.3 aroma. 2.8 Next day had this one at Sarasota Brewery, although it seemed a bit stale, at least they didn’t have an issue with funkiness off their tap system. Would give this one a 3.3, but will keep the rating from the beer I had at the brewery where this was actually made.

AN almost perfectally average Pale Ale. The malts whle not spectuaclar were decent and the hops brought enough bitter to the beer. nick76 (4404) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 The appearance is pale gold with an average head. The aroma is hoppy in a grassy way with some malt to balance. The taste is like the aroma with plenty of hops giving it a bitter taste. The palate is thin and makes this beer seem weaker than maybe it should be. I guess mark this one as a good session beer. This beer is pretty good overall and is one of the better beers from this brewery with only a slight corn taste keeping it from getting a higher score.

On tap at the Tampa Brewing Company Tampa, Fl. Light copper pour with a light white head. Not much of an aroma, perhaps, some fresh lake water coming through. Brief hints of hoppines, with some citrus undertones. Quaffable, middle of the road pale ale, nothing offensive yet nothing really jumps out. Smooth, clean mouthfeel, turns a bit stinging near the end and then fades away.
