Thanks to lurchingbeast for sending this to me recently.
Pours a slightly hazy bright golden orange color with a frothy, pillowy two finger white head that slowly settles into a thick lasting cap. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy, floral hop aroma with hints of pine, earthy grass and a ton of citrus fruit. Hints of grapefruit, orange peel and pineapple. Nice pale malt presence with some biscuit notes.
Full bodied especially for the style with a blast of dry, earthy hops up front that give off a nice lingering bitterness. Lots of pine needle/earthy flavor along with a decent amount of light and citrus fruit. Not as sweet or citrusy as aroma suggests with mostly grapefruit and pineapple. There’s a nice pale malt backbone underneath that makes itself know without taking away from the hops at all. Biscuity with a subtle grainy Graham character. Well balanced and complex. Very flavorful and easy to drink. jcr (2784) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Draft. Clear deep golden body. Off-white, frothy head. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Flavor leans toward the sweet side for an APA, but there is enough hop presence of grapefruit and pine to keep the malts in check and leave a bitter aftertaste. This doesn’t grab your attention, but it gets points for being solid and an easy drinker. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Tasted on 2/11/12 from a 16oz can given to me by Matt Leff, big thanks. Pours clear, bright orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace, leaving some sticky lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is full of citrus hops, with notes of resin and some toasted bread malt. The flavor is lightly sweet toasted bread malt up front, moving to pleasantly bitter citrus peel hops. The body is fairly light with average carbonation, and a long bitter citrus hops finish. pivo (2689) - 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. ryanfolty (2655) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Tap at Scottys on January 17, 2012. Clear golden pour with nice head and lacing. Aroma was citrus with some spice. Taste seemed to be opposite with more spice and less citrus. Fairly smooth, kinda creamy and thin bodied.

Light Amber colored with a medium fizzy head. Light malt and hop nose. Malt, long lasting medium bodied. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pounder? I barely know her! Can. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head and decent retention. The aroma is a bit muted but has plenty of floral notes. The taste has a nice hop punch, a nice grpefruit citrus backbone.. and some sweet caramel maltiness on the finish. Very well balanced and solid offering. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 2, 2013
can shared before fest of ales. poured hazy yellow with white head. sold aroma of malt and hops. the hops were more citrus than anything else. the flavor was pretty decent. nice spicey citrus punch of hops with solid malt base. overall decent apa. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Can thanks to funkybrewster. Really nice pale ale. Very drinkable. Light and biscuity up front with some sharp clean citrus finishing with medium bitterness, very clean. Certainly one I could find myself knocking back all day and several of. Palate is light, but not too thin or watery, carbonation seems to play nice as well.
