4 pack from Keg Liquors. Golden color. Nice floral aroma. Good hop profile with some minor apple sweetness. Nice. JaBier (8235) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2010
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. BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 1, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 Can thanks to LtDan. Pours with a clear golden body and a large, off-white head. Aroma of grass, earth, pine and caramel. Light citrus and some tea. Flavors of pine, earth, gelatin, dust, bitter, soil. A bit metallic. Very light sweetness in the finish of the second sip. Medium bubbles, decently dry and lastingly bitter finish.

Pint at Fresh Craft. Pours with a clear golden-orange hued body with a foamy white head. Aromas are citrusy, flowery, floral, low caramel and some tamarind. Flavors are clean, grainy, low bitterness and mild esters. Tangerine, pine and grapefruit. Medium caramel and toasty malt. Fuller carbonation with a lower body.
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. AirForceHops (7793) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 21, 2012
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.

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. JStax (7171) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft. Pours a translucent copper with a white head of foam. Pine, and bitter grapefruit peel come through in the aroma. Mildly bitter. Finishes sweeter. Dry as well. 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. ajnepple (7052) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap at Euclid Hall. Orange and clear appearance with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, spicy hops and light floral notes. Similar flavor, with mild bitterness and light sweetness. Average body with a crisp feel and ample carbonation. Solid, refreshing pale ale.
