I thought this was a pretty good pale ale...not overly strong like some IPAs and double IPAs, but had a nice mild nose and a good flavor. Thing I really like in a pale ale is it had a good clean refreshing finish! hatchattack (255) - Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Bottle. lighter golden, amber color. aroma of hops and strong citrus. the beer was a little too sweet for my taste, with a good amount of the floral hops coming through to add bitterness. Rlwegner (5) - Whitefish Bay, USA - JAN 13, 2010 does not count

This Pale Ale poured a crystal clear golden yellow colour with a bright, white, smoothly textured head. Scents include floral hopps, grass and a sharp citrus scent. First taste was slightly watery but with decent hopp flavours. Tastes of grass and citrus. Finish is slightly bitter with hopps lingering on the palate...

gold pour with a foamy medium white head.
Aroma is herbal hop, lighter citrus tones.
pale maltiness, grainy grassy flavour, medium grassy bitterness. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 15, 2009
THOUGHTS: I hated the label and thought it was way too hop heavy for an APA. Not enough malt to balance thing out. Nothing special and not something I’ll try again. I love their imperials, but haven’t found many of their regulars that I like.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium yellow with a rather small, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was light biscuit, moderate to heavy piney, resinous and lemony hops. It was a little like lemon Pine Sol, but not in an entirely bad way. The initial flavor was lightly sweet, bitter and slightly acidic; while the finish was rather bitter with a long duration. There was bready, biscuity malt; and piney, citric and then grassy and metallic hops. The light to medium body was a little watery and then rather dry with tingly carbonation and a metallic finish.
