Rye malts give this pale ale a good dry finish. I enjoyed it from a can and found it quite pleasing to the taste buds. Aroma is malty and not my face but still very good looking and an enjoyable pale ale in a can. Pack n, pack out. hotstuff (5263) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 11-22-2011 (Bottle) The appearance is a large foamy fizzy ivory head with a long retention, hazy orange body, fast rising, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, light rye and pine hops. The flavor is lightly bitter, caramel malt, pine hops, and has a short semi-dry finish. The mouthfeel is semi-lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is not overly hoppy tasting and what hops there are fade rather quickly. This is a so-so APA as it does not have a lot of character and there are better APA’s.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice cloudy copper with white head. Aroma is a little citrus and grass hops with some sweet caramel notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt up from with moderate bitter finish. Not an overly bitter pale ale. Herbal and pine flavors on finish. A little thin overall. Average pale ale.

Bottle. Very light sweet caramel malt aroma. Clear deep copper with a moderate off-white head. Light toasty caramel malt, and grassy/herbal hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation, lightly astringent. GreatDane1632 (1174) - North Dakota, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Received in a trade. Poured into a Prairie tulip glass -- First off I love the bottle art! Very, very, cool stuff there. The aroma is standard for an American Pale, looked nice, the taste, however I was I loved about this beer. I could taste the rye spiciness and a decent helping of bready flavors. Was there a decent amount of Biscuit/Victory malt in the grain bill? The hops complimented the malt flavors and I really thought it balanced well. Reminded me of some of the first Home brews I tried, that were really well done. Would gladly have another.

(tap) clear amber colour with a small off white head; aroma of citrus; balanced flavour with a slight short bitter finish; pleasant mild session ale - far from being a ’hop bomber’ though :-) jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Fresh bottle. Pours Amber with no head. Aroma is interesting - caramel, dough. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, rye. Earthy tones against the sweet flavor of the malt. Quick clean finish. jstonerock24 (142) - Englewood, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours an orange with a white head. Flavor is of caramel mild citrus. Nice bitterness for a pale ale. Overall it has a decent flavor. Shag (3045) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Amber color with a beige head. The aroma contains some citurs, spices, and some vinegar notes? The flavor is not a hop bomb but more of a sour bomb. I get some citrus, caramel, but also some vinegar and sour notes. Is this on purpose? Well it works ok. Overall its pretty good. eelbasher (285) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2014
12oz via local swap. Pours deep golden with a off white head. Aromas of old hops, cardboard, caramel, and bread. Drinks heavy for a pale. Grain, old hops, and a touch of caramel. What’s going on with this? Meh
