Bottle shared by Dogbrick. Pours clear gold with a thick white head. Crisp grassy hop aroma with a bit of malt. Malty flavor up front and finishing with crisp and grassy hops. Fairly simple, but pretty good. drfabulous (7816) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2011
4 pack from Keg Liquors. Golden color. Nice floral aroma. Good hop profile with some minor apple sweetness. Nice. Ernest (7663) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a light note of diacetyl.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Very little aroma, which includes some butter. Pretty thin, watery, and stark in the mouth...almost seems diluted. I wouldn’t go as far as to call it flavorless, as there is ample bitterness, but yeah...it’s surprisingly weak. Strykzone (7308) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pint at MarkOs in Munster. Clear golden. Some white foam becomes a ring. This beer brings spices with citrus and floral hops. Pale or crystal malts. Trical and citrus at the finish. A well brewed APA. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2010
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Indianapolis, IN). Pours a nice darker muted golden hue, small whitish head that dies to a film that clings to the edges. A faint haze. Aromas are freshcut grass and floral hops, a touch stinky, almost dank, with crisp pale malts providing a light malty sweetness. Initial is heavier side of light bodied, clean with some decent floral and soapy hop character. Fresh cut grass mingling with bready pale malts, finish leaves a lingering floral and soapy bitterness on the palate. A very drinkable pale ale that is fairly clean, does the job. However, it does lack the flourish that many American brewers are putting on their APAs nowadays to distinguish them.

16 oz. can from a trade. Lager glass shows me a clear gold colored body with a thick, dense and off-white head which laced until the last drop. The aroma is full of citrus hops, notes of grass and toasted bread malt. Taste is dominated by the hops but has a solid backbone of bread malt. This could be on the borderline of an IPA. The carbonation was perfect giving a light zing on the tongue. Finish is real clean. Super easy to drink and well crafted. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 15, 2014
can, medium bodied orange yellow pour. citrusy bitterness, orange & malty backbone. pretty bitter pale ale. good 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2013
Can:   Vibrant orange, large fluffy white head, nice lacing, light carbonaiton.   Nose of semi-sweet pithiness.   Very much a citrus oriented Pale Ale.   Bright bitterness up front, not caustic, very smooth with a
pithy background.   Decent malt base.   Seems very fresh.   Bitter but not overbearing.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes clean, and what Pale Ales should be, hoppy but not out of balance with the malts.
&nbps Straight forward and solid for a Pale Ale.   Certainly matches up with PNW examples.   Thanks to Brigadier for the cans! Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Poured a medium orange with an off white head. Aroma of cardboard, and grassy and citrus stale hops. Flavor was caramel cardboard with medium bitterness. Definitely old. Patrickctenchi (6560) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours amber with tall tan head.
Aroma is strong,flowery, citrus hops.
Taste is mild bitter hops....rather dull tones in the hops, muted..not much zing compared to the scent.
Still, very nice taste and feel.
A bit watery, but good.
