Hazy golden orange. Citrusy hop aroma. Syrupy malt stickiness. Hops are taking a bit of a backseat, but citrusy and bitter. Decent, tastes a bit old but just purchased alexsdad06 (10803) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2014
12 oz bottle from Santa shared with the group. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor leans more toward the malt side, some toasted character, mildly sweet cookie malts, some citrus and grassy hops, decent. Tmoney99 (14964) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2014

Bottle with jackl. Clear golden yellow color, big fluffy white head with nice retention and lacing. Aroma of bright qumquat and summer fruit. Taste is bitter fruit and citrus. Light body. DrunkSanta410 (972) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pale copper color with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is piney, grassy hops with a honey and caramel malt backbone. I don’t get the grapefruit I have seen in the other ratings. In aroma or taste. Taste is piney, grassy, slightly earthy hops with caramel and honey malts. Well balanced, moderate bitterness. Palate is medium body, not the best carbonation, feels a bit lacking. Average.

Received as gift from St Regis Deer Valley. Pours a light gold with moderate head - lighter than typical pale ale. Big nose with lemon and grapefruit. Very flavorful with grapefruit and lemon peel up front, followed by some bready malts - not really any bitterness on the finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle from Hazel’s beverage world. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, hops, malts, caramel and peach. Bitter finish with citrus, caramel and peach. Good English style IPA. lb4lb (2632) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a hazy thick attractive orange with medium offwhite head and yeast floaties. Smell is amber ale like crystal malt, tea and hops. Taste is tea and medium hop bitterness with kind of a dull hop flavor. Not particularly fresh, or fruity from the hops, but overall it is decent. Full body and prickly carbonation. Just not my prefered flavor profile. Beaver (1846) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12 oz bottle, best by 7/16/14. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet bready malts with some grassy hops.
The flavor is sweet toasted malts with some grassy bitterness and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, it’s very subdued and sweet and grassy.
