Refrigerated 1 pint can from JoePeesie poured into a shaker. Pours clear deep golden with big bright fluffy white head. Big bubble fluffy lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly resinous texture, and nice hop aroma. Taste is citrus, some long pine, and slightly bitter finish. Better than expected. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2010

Flavor: Fruity hops (resin, weak tangerine, grapefruit, floral); great level of hoppiness and bitterness (moderate that stick in the throat). Palate: Medium-light, a touch thin. Overall: This is a nice, sessionable Pale Ale.

I wasn’t sure what to expect but since the price was only $3.50 for a pint the risk was minimal. The reward was a solid and flavorful pale ale. Not quite heavy enough to wear down the palate it still had enough depth to keep from being a boring one trick pony. Oh, and it also comes in relatively inexpensive cans if that is your thing.
Aroma / Appearance - The rosy red body glowed with warmth like a dim fire. A pillowy white head remained after a few minutes. Beneath was the smell of cedar, polished bronze, caramel, and dashes of honey. The warm bitterness glues everything together like strands of tree sap.
Flavor / Palate - Light and easy going, the first impression is of oranges and lemons. The transition towards a woody finish brings the hops into focus clearly. Over time it becomes a little predictable. However it is still good enough to keep a four pack around for hot summer afternoons. If you are in central Indiana check it out and support a local brewery.
Can. Floral grapefruit and piney hops aroma. Hazy honey gold with a moderate thick white head. Floral citrus peel hops and caramel malt flavor, with a long, lingering spicy bitter finish. Light to medium body, lively carbonation, and a slightly dry finish.

On tap at Indianapolis airport . Amber body. Pine and resin with a watery finish . Okay ipa Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Solid pale ale. Hoppy, yet not excessively bitter. Very balanced, actually. Malt side has elements of bread, caramel and biscuits -- without being overly sweet. Hops are citrusy and slightly grassy with a fitting bite of bitterness. Great session beer. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
A pint in a can provided by Sean, drank from a perfect pint glass... The beer pours a light watery copper with orange notes, looks ok but light. The head is off white watery, but good retention and lacing... The aroma is really nice, great fresh citrus notes, a hint of caramel then a perfect amount of hops. Just great... The taste is equally as nice, an easy to drink flavorful pale ale. Would love to get this and crush it 4 can packs of daisy cutter.

Pint at Chumley’s then again at Radio Radio while being blown away by the sound of Caspian. What a combination. Anyway, there is not much to really say about this beer if you’ve had dozens of American pale ales. This one is very approachable and textbook with modest grapefruit and citrus with comforting malts. This is very clean and on the lighter side of the style. Fantastic for a session, just don’t expect anything out of the ordinary. Ed5388 (3480) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2013
16oz can. Poured into a Sun King beer can glass. Pours a clear light orange color with a thick pillowy off white head. Aroma of citrus hops, bready malts, and a hint of sour funk. Taste is citrus and pine, toast, and resin. Mild bitterness. My first offering from Sun King and not disappointed! Really enjoying this one!
