Pours a darker amber color with white head. Grass, floral notes, pine, and some caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes bitter. Medium bodied. mar (5437) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Copper with an off white head. Pine, caramel, citrus, and light florals. Thin palate, caramel, faint hops, bitter and smooth finish. achtungpv (271) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2014
mild nose, strong grapefruit taste with nice even hops throughout. It’s good to have a beer that doesn’t think hops need to pummel you unconscious. Good beer. Concealer (1265) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Can. Clear orange copper with a foamy off white head. Aromas of pine, spice, biscuits and light citrus. Flavor is spice, pine, light citrus and malt. Medium bodied, bitter end. Lingering pine. outofmehead (1) - - MAY 7, 2014 does not count
From a can, poured into a 12 oz. glass. Pours a medium off-white head two fingers deep, some fruity hop aromas mixed with sweet malt notes. Taste is some NW hop fruitiness with a firm, lingering crystally sweet malt backbone. A well balanced, somewhat sessionable, infinitely enjoyable American amber (or possibly a more aggressive English pale?) ale. Was recommended by a total stranger while at the Majestic Mobil in Flagstaff.

Reviewed from notes. From my AZ trip.
The appearance had a hazy pale brown to orange color. one finger white foamy head that dies to have a moderate filmy lacing trying to stick to the sides of the glass.
The smell had a nicely dosed amount of bitter somewhat piney hops to an equal amount of pale malts to allow a decent blend to permeate my nose.
The taste was quite a flavorful through the nice allocation of malts to hops - blended very nicely. Dry somewhat malty aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on body - more likely probably closer to medium, but still having a decent sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation is good fo the style and for me as there’s a decent amount of harshness for an APA, but nothing overbearing.
Overbearing, it was a good APA that would be well welcomed if I could find in my distro as a regular in my fridge brodie5775 (6) - san tan, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2014 does not count
this to me tastes like a mix of an IPA and an amber. i really enjoy this beer although it is definitely not the same out of a can as it is on tap. i also usually drink this at the brewery mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2014
It’s not a bad beer. But there’s nothing exciting going on here either. Not overly hoppy. Not overly malty. Kinda session like. Ferris (16301) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Can - Grassy and citrus hops. Clear gold with a thin white head. Citrus hops with a decent sweetness and a bitter grassy finish. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 26, 2014
12oz can in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, a lot of pale, caramel, and cereal malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best pale ale, looks too dark and is not hoppy enough.
