Can 355ml @ Motel Room, Motel 6, Kingman, AZDMLINAZ (332) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and pine. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and citrus fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
From a can or on draft, this is one of my favorite pale ales, on par in my opinion with Oskar Blues Dales Pale Ale. It has a wonderful hoppy, citrus aroma. Flavor is hops, citrus; well balanced. Mouthfeel is crisp, strong, full-bodied. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2013
This was pretty decent. Orange in color, but with some hops in the body. I’d call this a pale ale (labeled under some local bar’s name). Pretty easy to drink. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUL 24, 2013
December 2011. From can. Pours light amber color with a white head. Hoppy aromas with some pine and citrus. Medium carbonation and a nice smooth finish. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Medium amber. Fair white head, some lace. Hoppy. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, caramel. Smooth but lasting bitterness. Nice balance.

This is pretty much the same as their IPA but a bit more citrus then pine and less of it. Again, a decent beer but really lacks a kick to get me excited. wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Same hoppy profile in Hopshock. Not as strong, but definitely that same piney, citrusy northwestern hop profile. Subtler hop profile, and a little bit stronger malt.
Appearance: Clear dark amber. White-ish head quickly dissipates.
Taste: Delicious balance between those hops and the malt. The arrival is citrusy, piney hops. The finish is some nice, sweet malts. The in-between is where the magic happens.
Palate: Medium body, short-medium finish.
Overall: Great beer for getting people off of AB InBev and miller-coors swill. A nice introduction into craft brews. However, it also stands well on its own. Quite good. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Deep orange pour, very slightly murky. Off-white head with a little lacing. Lots of caramel and earthy malts in this - hops are there, pretty good balance, but I would say the malts are slightly more up-front than the hops. Decent brew.

Can from Total Wine enjoyed for breakfast by the Wigwam pool, with a fresh orange to make it a complete breakfast. I thought this was really tasty and refreshing with lots of citrus hops and a strong malt backbone. Plus the canning is a bonus for the pool. olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2013
12 oz bottle pours light amber with small white head. Malt and grapefruit aroma. Pine and caramel hop taste.
