Scipio (900) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Pours a bright, slightly hazy golden with a medium although quickly fading white head. The aroma gives off a citrus impression. Grapefruit and pineapple are what is noticed most. There are elements of grassy hops and some caramel in here as well. The taste is big on pine and lemon. When the initial flavor begins to recede, there are hints of pineapple, caramel, grassy hops, and lemon. Aftertaste is lemon and grass and is rather long lasting. Light in body, a texture that is more thinner, with a good amount of carbonation. This one is refreshing when drinking. Not the best, but its good. Id happily drink it again.

Fine pale ale with nicely cloudy straw colored appearance---due to bottle conditioning. Hop bitterness was minimal. Good fruity hop aroma.

Nejhleader (1504) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2013
A nice brew. gentle citrus hop taste is blended well with the malts with a good mouth filling body with a smooth aftertaste. A really nice brew.

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Smell is very piney at first, but then it settles into a really nice, fresh, citrusy grapefruit. Pale orange color. Average head. Bitterness units make itself known, but there is a restrained character at the end, letting the bready malts shine through. Very good example of the APA style - lighter and more thirst-quenching than an IPA, but still packing a good punch. I thought their old pale was fine, but this is definitely an improvement.

Darwenus (1005) - Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
There is a lot of carbonation in the cloudy, pale orange body, and the medium head leaves a fair amount of lace. There is a lot of hoppiness in the aroma. Big, lemony citrus hops are all over the nose, and they almost dominate the flavor. There is a mildly buttery, bready malt in the background for balance, though. If it were easier to find and a little more affordable, I can see me making this a regular lawnmower beer.

12 oz. bottle shared by Dave. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a small white head. The aroma has citrus, floral and herbal hops with pale malts and a slight tart character. The flavor had much of the same; malts were pale and bready, citrus, herbal and mildly spicy hops with a touch of tartness.

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Floral, fruity aroma. A clear golden pour with a rapidly dissipating white head and no lacing. The taste is grapefruit, pine, hints of biscuit, and a bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Overall, a nice pale ale and while not as hoppy as an IPA, it was hoppyer than I expected.

glennmastrange (2763) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with wood honey and dried peach in the background. Head is average size, white, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is hazy amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is medium, slick with a lively carbonation. Nice balance between malt and hops in this American Pale Ale. This one is top notch.

beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Cloudy dark yellow. Diminishing small white head. Hoppy. Citrus, grapefruit. Medium body. Initially sweet leading to a medium bitter finish. Crisp, balanced and drinkable. Good but not spectacular.

355mL thanks to BrewtopiaofPJ. Murky dark orange, perhaps yeast sediment in APA? Larger off white foam. Webby lacing. Nose is cheesy, fresher honeydew, caramel. Taste has fuller fresh biscuit, mild lemon soap and butter hitting a pretty decent balance. Higher, refreshing carbonation.
