12 oz--Thanks Kawabomber..its cloudy golden with an off white slightly fluffed head...drippy lacing forming and sticking...a delicate hop aroma...mmmm citrus whiffs...light yummy malts on the first sip followed by a bitter citrus--grapefruit and lemon---its light in every way but drinkable in every way....bitter left in my mouth after, but that’s light too...a bit un-balanced in the way of bitter consumed all the other subtleties that may have been there fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2010
bottle thanks to Cavie, pours dark orange with a tall frothy white head. Aroma is nice biscuit malt and a toasted nuts with a mild pine hop note. Flavor is bittersweet hay and celery with a nicely balanced pepper and pine hop finish. I like this one. DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 11, 2010
Tasty hoppy brew that looks like an ale but has sediment like a Hefe-Weizen. This is a strongly hoppy beer that will turn some away. I like it fairly well though. I wouldn’t seek it out again probably just because it’s not too distinct or above average, but you know, it’s good. HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - APR 10, 2010
Not a bad pale ale... nice and hoppy. But I was really disappointed with the appearance... it had that muddy water wheat beer look... what the heck? IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle. Pour was light to medium golden. Aroma was of slight cascade hops and a little malt and breadiness. Flavors were pretty well balanced and more on the malty side than bitter. Not to complex or exciting.

12oz bottle at the DC local tasting. Pours a hazy orange amber with a creamy, white head. Metallic aroma, malty, bread made from whole grains. Flavor is sweet, sugary, more whole grain bread. Finish is medium bodied. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 8, 2010
12oz bottle, thanks nimbleprop. Hazy amber body topped by small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, orange, some grapefruit, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some bread, grapefruit. Light-medium body, light acidity. Solid APA. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Rather watery and fizzy, just a touch of malt character, but they clearly use Briess pale ale malt, nothing else is that bland. Rather dry, decent hops. Nothing great, but not offense. brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy golden color with a finger of so of white head.
S: The nose is a bit disappointing (not that I had incredible expectations to begin with). Very mild aromas of citrus and floral hops with a slightly stronger malt presence.
T: The flavor is a bit more impressive than the nose is. The same floral and citrus hop components are more pronounced here, with a mild bitterness. The caramel malt gives the beer some needed body.
M: Nothing out of the ordinary in terms of body or aroma, both being in the middle of the scale.
D: A decent enough pale ale. I would have liked a little more hop character, but there was a fair amount to make it a palatable APA. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2010
amber pour with a small lasting white head. good example a american pale ale. great cascade hop aroma and flavors.
