Pours clear golden with a white head. It has a medium body with semi sharp carbonation. The taste has pineapple, grapefruit spice and light malt. Good. Homer321 (5006) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Can from a trade. Aroma is biscuit malt initially followed by a light cascade and grapefruit hop aroma. hazy orange pour with a decent sized off white head. Taste is initially all bitter then a light dusty malt flavor. After that everything just kind of fall flat and lifeless. Meh at best. djd07 (14358) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2016

Tomas_of_Man (4) - - JUL 28, 2016 does not count
AROMA: Light piney hops; some amber malt notes but no specific character. 7/12
APPEARANCE: Dark amber/orange proper. Fairlt hazy but plenty of CO2 visible. Moderate white foam mostly dissipates. 2/3
FLAVOR: Piney hops throughout, but low on the bitterness. Low to moderate clean grainy-malt character provides balance but is not especially sweet. No off flavors, but palette is a little boring as it’s rather mild. 12/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Crisp, but not refreshing per se. Slightly dry aftertaste. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Nothing wrong with this beer other than being mild and kind of boring. Drinkability is nice at least. 6/10
TOTAL SCORE: 31/50

Goes down smooth finishes clean with slight citrus notes. I'll drink this one again! kathouse (1874) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Golden in color with a sticky foam. I’m mixed about the aroma. Some bread maybe, citrus, not really sure. Not bad just nothing outstanding. Body was under carbonated. Nothing terrific. jtclockwork (16436) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2016

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2016 Pint can from Keg Liquors; dated 5/12/16 (Packaged-on date) Aroma: Moderate citrusy/lightly floral Cascade-like hops and lighter caramel biscuit at about a 60/40 balance. Very SNPA inspired. Appearance: Caramel gold with soft carbonation holding up a foamy white cap that settles into a patchy skin. Flavor: Starts out more malty and gradually builds up momentum hop-wise; the finish is at once semi dry but citrusy and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Good SNPA clone that is solid all around, but is nothing to seek out as an exemplar in the style. pivo (2685) - GERMANY - JUN 24, 2016
Bright hop nose, shimmering pale gold, low tight head. Crisp body with a light malt taste that dissolves quickly into a tight hop bitterness. Thin, and very happy for a PA, it’s more like an IPA.
