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. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 Sample from can at the Beer ’N Rock Band tasting on 08/27/2010: The beer is a clear golden color with a medium fluffy off-white head that recedes slowly. Thin sheet of lacing at the top of the glass with spots underneath. Hoppy aroma with primarily citrus notes, along with a touch of malt. Medium body with hops and zesty citrus flavors along with malty notes. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Straightforward, decent Pale Ale overall. slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
"91st percentile on RB...gotta admit, I’m not feeling that. This was an average pale at best. Did absolutely nothing to stand out and even seemed like it was dirty malty enough to not be suoer fresh. Decent bittering and floral hops, but no follow through."

On tap at the Bloomington Beer Festival. Poured a clear dark gold with a white head. Aroma was full of citrus notes (orange) with underlying piney notes. There were more malts present in the flavor leading to a musty pine flavor with a touch of orange.

Can. Sweet orange/grapefruit/pine hops and light malt aroma. Golden yellow color with large head. Sweet orange malt initially with moderately bitter grapefruit/pine hops finish. Solid APA. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Amber pour, off white head. Nice pale! Good citrus hops up front, some toffee notes, yeast, lemon zest. Flavor has a great kick of hops balanced perfectly by some caramel malt notes. I enjoyed this one. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Can shared by Bob - thanks! Citrus and pine resin aroma. Clean palate although a bit light / watery - not bad though. Fairly rich taste. Nice. hopscotch (11246) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Can… Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Lengthy retention. The nose is of biscuit and moderately toasted grains flanked by musky and citrusy hops – lemon peel stands out. Medium to full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is of medium bitter, spicy, peppery hops. Lengthy, moderately bitter, dry finish. Thanks to MI2CA for providing this brew! alexsdad06 (10821) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Can shared by shigadeyo. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that becomes a thin ring. The aroma is crisp citrus, floral, pale malt, and grass. The flavor has some citrus notes mingling with dry, grassy and floral hops and bready pale malt. There is a mild to moderate level of bitterness. Light to medium bodied drinkable APA.
