UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 16oz can poured into a shaker. Pleasant notes of grapefruit, orange, and their respective peels, toasted bread, and some caramel hit the nose. It pours an oily, light copper / orange color topped with a puffy off-white head. There?s a good amount of lace and the fluffy head recedes slowly, eventually reducing to a medium thick ring with a surface haze. The taste is a high/medium-high bitter with a medium sweet backbone. It has an oily texture with an average amount of somewhat soft, but fizzy head. The finish is grapefruit and caramel with a spice quality to it. The spice and grapefruit linger for a while with a citrus note appearing too. mp_lane (98) - Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours slightly hazy amber with nice head retention. Aroma is orange or citrus. Taste is tilted more to bitter with good malt backbone. Not too bitter on the palate. Very good pale. awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Tap at Ale Emporium. Pours cloudy dark orange with thick foamy white head. Nose is sharp citrus hops. Taste is crisp citrus hops with a spicy salt and pepper feel to it. Pretty dry, yet very refreshing. Nice taste, very different than most pales. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2010

Can: The aroma consists of caramel, light citrus hops, and a touch of grass. It pours a mostly transparent golden-orange with a touch of haze and a small white head. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel. The finish has moderate grapefruit hops. Light-medium bodied with lively (at times prickly) carbonation.
10/24/10. 16oz can. Clear golden color that hints at orange - pretty light - with a small fluffy off-white head that lasts and laces a bit. Really nice fresh hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and definitely pine - quite nice. Smooth but light flavor that is a little thin but does pack a bitter punch and some nice hop character as well.

The aroma is a bit light, some citrus and crisp zest. The beer pours golden amber with an awesome creamy white head. The flavoris crisp grapefruit citrus with a bit too much of a dry finish. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - APR 5, 2011
Can from Stfun. Poured a golden color with medium nice head. Aroma was grassy and citrus. Taste was much more bitter than i was expecting which was a plus in my book. Pretty solid pale ale. ganache (5896) - New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2011
This one from a tallboy can, I was responsible and didn’t rate the samples from the brewery. Huge hoppy nose, piny with citrus and especially grapefruit, resin heading toward soapiness. Bright coppery orange body with steady carbonation and a frothy beige head. Light body closer to IPA-level bitterness, really cleanses the palate and leaves a bready residue, though it’s pushing close to that threshhold for resiny astringency. Just bone dry. A good, potentially great summer beer, dry hopping has done wonders and it has that perfect hamburger and hot dog pairing potential. drfabulous (7941) - 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.
