Sammy (11651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2011
Very nice as a pale ale. Neutral aroma, medium golden colour with one and a quarter inch head, lacey. A good bitterness, big in-mouth hops, like a double pale ale. Well malted. Caramel and a decent mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Big grapefruit and sweet malt on the nose. A little sweet and think but enough bitterness as well. Good if not quite a standout.

daknole (10925) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Orange pour with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruity right off the bat, some caramel and the hops dont make themself overly present in the nose. Flavor is much maltier up front but at the finish you get a nice hop bite. Pretty bitter finish. Overall a nice brew.

deyholla (10794) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of pine with with a bit of sweet grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor begins with a good amount of pine that has a bit of resin and mellows to have some sweet grains in the finish.

BVery (9985) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Very slightly hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is pine and tropical fruit hops, but Im getting a bit of aspirin in the nose as well. Wonder if this bottle is a bit old. Moderate palate with good carbonation. Taste is an initial sharp pine and pineapple hop, but its well balanced and finishes clean. Thinking I need to try this a bit fresher.
