Quite a lovely beer. I feel like saying Hey baby, nice hops! from what I can tell, alcohol is added to this beverage during the "brewing" process, which makes it even better.
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a rocky white head and amazing lacing. Fruity malt nose hints at Valencia oranges. Some light caramel as well. Crisp, tangy malt notes. Hints of orange and brioche. Light dry hop finish has grassy hop notes. Well balanced ad easy drinking. rfm3 (10) - - SEP 3, 2017
An adequate beer not as hoppy as one would assume
Stll goes down fine and the price is right

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 Draft at Macs. Very fizzy orange gold pour with a white head. Soft pale malts. Navel oranges. Honey herbal cough drops. Hint of rotted peaches. Bit soapy. Nothing really special. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a soft copper color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising at a good pace. Just a cap of a little white foamy swiftly dies off. Stringy lace.
The aroma had some soupy sweet fruity hops, slightly bitter, but having a balancing malt bill.
The flavor was moderately sweet through the blend. Caramel malts sturdy themselves a bit further down the lane to follow through on the aftertaste and ride into the finish.
The palate was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, pretty good APA, a bit old school, but I’d have again.

Floral pale ale. Not too bitter, mild flavor, a good hot summer day beer. March madness 2017

A nice malty beer with a little bit of hop bite. The aroma is week but everything else about this beer is quite enjoyable. Very nice and buttery texture. There is some nice caramel flavor from the malt and there is balance. Just because the hops doesn’t hit you in the face, doesn’t mean it’s a bad beer.

(12oz bottle) AROMA: malt, caramel/toffee, some hops but malt notes dominate, hint of perfume and fermented fruit.. APPEARANCE: medium golden with a little Amber/orange, touch of haziness, light head that fizzes away pretty quick, minimal residual, slight oily film. TASTE: malt driven flavors, smokey sweetness, honey, toast, touch of dark chocolate, not too bitter. PALATE: medium body, round/smooth, relatively soft on the palate, dry finish, OVERALL: quite drinkable, not too heavy, some nice nuances from the malt side of things, not overly hopped, nothing stands out as exceptional, but solid across all parameters. an above average ale.

12 oz bottle. Darker golden color with a dense white head. Aroma is white bread dough and light citrus. Simple malts, navel orange, grass, just a little hoppy profile. tsd08460 (1223) - Marshall, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2016
