I love the smell of the hops in this beer. It is very well balanced and light but hoppy. colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2012

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Sampled at GABF with Andrew and Moreau. Pours a lightly hazy, bright orange body with light white lacing. Aroma is super fresh citrus hop, light dank herb and incredible pine flavor. Mouthfeel is medium, sessionable and refreshing, the perfect blend of tropical fruits, pine hop,citrus and a cheesy funk dank flavor. Tangerines dance along side nectarines and pomelos! Incredible overall, and perhaps the best of the entire fest for me personally. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap. Pour is a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Nose is tight with light malt caramel and some nice grainy malt. Good hop profile, notes of citrus and strong herbal presence. Taste is balanced, dry finish, tight balance, grain and faint sweet caramel with citrus and herbal hops. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Thanks to hamilton23 for this one. Cheers, Steve! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is grapefruit with intermittent pine. Flavor is grapefruit pith with a nice malt backbone and pine sap. Medium to full in body for the style and a nice hoppiness all over.

50cl Bottle @ RBBSG, Courtesy of Dave. Golden blond coloured beer with a small white head and very little carbonation. Clear hoppy simcoe hoppy hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter hoppy hinted. Not bad for a pale ale! Ratman197 (14692) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2012

On tap at city beer store in the midst of Folsom street fair... Soooo not the most thorough review. Clear golden pour, strong citrus aroma. Taste is extremely hoppy for a pale ale, basically an ipa+, lots of grapefruit bitterness, pretty much hides the pale malt characteristics. Very fresh floral tasting.

On tap at Russian River. Clear golden pour with a tight white froth. Huge dank tropical fruit and evergreen give way to juicy nectar fruit and floral herbals. Dry crisp finish with a creamy body. Superb.
