At first sip it is tart and grainy but as you go it opens up. A pleasant bitterness lies underneath grain, tart but citrusy hops, and some spiciness. GnarlyGnome (673) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Nice, drinkable but still citrusy. It’s a nice warm weather drinker... Well done pale. jsquire (4622) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Deep golden color out of the can with a thin white head. Nice grapefruit hop nose. Big citrus rind flavors with candied grapefruit rind and orange juice. Long citrus finish. This is a really good pale ale. pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Clear golden color, wispy white ring with lacing. Mango, papaya, spice, and a touch of caramel in the nose. Light bodied, lasting finish, very drinkable. Big hop flavor, good balance with an assertive bitterness but malt to back it up. Very refreshing and enjoyable. Would gladly have another! GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2012

16oz can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a crystal clear, deeper gold colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of soapy lacing. Aroma is grass and citruses with a grainy pale malt backing. Some soft florals, a bit of an earthy resin, and grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Slightly bready pale malts with a nice grapefruit and grassy citrus. More soft florals, a bit of a resiny pine, and a light earthiness before this finishes dry and slightly resiny with a light-medium, grassy, somewhat citrusy bitterness balanced well with a lightly sweetened bready pale malt. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, but a very smooth body with a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a well done pale ale. Nice pale malt backing with some breadiness and a solid, grassy, citrusy hop backing. Very easy drinking and enjoyable. pantanap (3367) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Osiris. 16oz can purchased from sun king... Pours a mostly NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2012
transparentorange hue and topped with a frothy thin milky white
head... Straighforward citrusy hop base some bready malt presents
itself as a backbone. Standard but decent... Flavors follow suit with
an assertive citrus hop focus, earthy bitterness surfaces late. Lively
carbonation with a lighter side if medium body. Drinks pretty good but
nothing all that unique but sometimes that is all you need
Can from 21st Amendent Liquor in Indy. Pours a nice looking gold with hints of copper. Frothy and sticky white head. Nose is woody and resiny, lots of pine, citrus and apricot. Faint biscuity malts. On tasting, hint of caramel, a strong bitterness that quenches. Lots more of that citrus and resin coming through, along with a sturdy back bone. Pretty awesome APA, up there with Daisy Cutter. italarican (1606) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Can thanks to JoePeesie! Clear amber pour with moderate eggshell head. Aroma is full of pine and earthy hops backed by plenty of caramel malt and bread. Flavor is hop dominant of spruce, orange peel, and dirt backed by caramel malt. Some lemon in the finish with moderate rush of hops. Really good! jcos (1855) - Maryland, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Location/Date:Can on July 10th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours an orange copper.
Aroma: Light pine, citrus.
Taste: Medium bitterness, piney, some grapefruit.
Palate:Light body, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: First off, thanks Dave for getting the beer! This beer has a lot of flavor, especially for 5.6%. Something in the taste is just slightly short of greatness to me, and that’s why I give this a very good but not great rating. Maybe it’s bordering on IPA land and so I want more.
