Can thanks to Sixthglass. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thick white head. A sweet biscuit nose with abundant pine and citrus hops. The flavor is a super smooth Pale with lemon zest, oranges, light bitterness, smooth biscuit balances it out. Some lingering bitterness. Nice. Akin to Daisy Cutter. I expect some high ratings of this brew. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Can. Pour is gold with a nice white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of grapefruit hops, bread, caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/citrus hops, bready malt. Palate is dry, soft, oily, with a nicely bitter finish. Drinks closer to an IPA, nicely dry and bitter. johnnnniee (4285) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours just shy of clear with a golden amber color and a creamy white head that never gets too large or distant. Nice grapefruit and apricot aroma mixed with a hint of pine and hints of bready malt somewhere in the mix. Taste is a nice mix of bready biscuity malt with plenty of earthy pine and citrus hop flavor to keep me interested. Medium to light body with a fairly dry finish, moderate level of carbonation and a resinous creamy watery mouthfeel. Nice pale ale with huge amounts of hop aroma. I wouldn’t mind a touch more body here, but I could also see myself cutting the lawn with one of these too. PapaMick (43) - Jacksonville, Arkansas, USA - JAN 13, 2012
From can poured into Sam glass. Medium amber, moderate head with decent lacing. Thin mouthfeel. Citrus essence with a crisp flavor. Some residual bitterness but not unpleasant. Suggested by staff of a package store in downtown Indy. Wish I had opportunity to try more FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Can. Pours bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is citric and clean, nice floral character, bright and hoppy, a touch grassy. Flavor is much the same, excellent bright citric character, not too over the top in bitterness, refreshing light and a touch spicy. Finishes grassy and clean. medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice beer

Can. Pours a clear, medium copper color with a fluffy white head. Some lacing as the head settles. Nice aroma of malty caramel and fruity citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nice slight sweet start that has a building level of citrus rind bitterness. The dry hopping really shows in both the aroma and taste. Ends with a lingering bitterness. Pretty tasty.

Received this from pantanap. Thanks!
A - slighty piney with floral and grassy notes.
A - pours a golden wheat-like yellow. Average lacing that sticks around nicely as you drink it.
T - first taste is bitter that lingers on the palate. Touch of orange sweetness which makes it very quaffable.
P - medium carbonation that is perfect for a pale ale. Mouthfeel is prickly with a light oily, resin finish.
O - A better than average pale ale with a nice hop bite. Wish the hop flavors and aromas were a bit more integrated to balance out the bitterness. geeklimit (291) - USA - MAY 4, 2012
Very nice malt aroma. Pours with a good bubbly head and a cloudy darker golden body. Palate is clean, bubbly and slightly sticky. Taste is a pleasing higher-than-usual hop load for a pale ale. Slightly bitter finish. Jabic (564) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Ar: Resin, lemon, and a touch of pine - orange notes, too.
Ap: Crystal-clear amber-orange - large off-white head with very good retention and a beautiful pattern of lacing.
T: Lemon, pine, and bitter orange up front, very light sweetness with a bit of toasty malt - medium-high bitterness, with a minty edge - finish is some lingering orange and spice.
P: Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Nice, bright, and tasty pale ale - great hop character - lots of flavor and refreshing.

Very pleasant session beer and a good example of an american pale. Light, drinkable with a decent malt backbone, but hops dominate. It’s moderately bitter and heavy on the citrus. Finish is crisp, clean and refreshing.
