Picked up a 6 pack on a recent TN gettaway in a cabin in the smokies. Not too bad. Enough hops to gain the attention of the IPA lover. On the crisp, refreshing, citrusy side. Moderately carbonated and not too bitter. Pretty dry throughout; easy enough to drink.

12 oz bottle. Decent hoppy aromas. Not super hoppy on the flavor, but decent. Pretty good.

Pours an orange body and a white head. Standard apa aroma or light hops, but it honesty it is a pretty weak aroma at least when it is cold. Rather hoppy taste for an APA. Slightly fruity. Gets better warmer and I curse the woman who gave this to me in a frosted mug.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2009 Draft. Peppery nops on the nose and in flavor. Not a strong aroma or flavor, just a watered down pale ale. There’s a little bit of hoppiness in there, and it’s decently refreshing. Not a very interesting beer, but a reasonable session brew.

surlysober (41) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2008
FIRST TRIAL: Pours a beautiful bronze with a wispy white head; aroma is cereal malt, floral hops, and just a bit of old vegetables; taste is more cereal malt, and floral, grassy hops, but the aftertaste is more veggies. Overall, I really liked my first sip of the beer, but as I continued drinking I noticed the aftertaste more and more and got to liking the beer less and less... Not a good omen for a session beer. Big thanks to BeerBelcher who was kind enough to share this with me (which he got from his beer of the month club).

Eh. This seems a tad overrated to me. Crystal clear copper color wtih not much head. Aroma is boring malt and more malt. I think I smell some decent hops. But the 2 do not meet in harmony in this beer. Watery and just a tad off. Oh well.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a medium copper color. Mild hop aroma with light malt & citrus. Flavor is mildly hopped. Expect a little more with the name.Very easy drinking & pretty good

Kevster (344) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2008
On tap @ the Draft House (Atlanta airport): Pours a clear copper with a thin off-white head with nice lacing. Aroma has a mild hoppiness that brings out the citrus. Flavor is citrusy with a crisp dry bitter finish. Refreshing!

On tap, pale copper gold color with thin cream colored head. Subtle hop nose, with a very well balanced flavor and clean finish. Very easy drinking.

Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2008
bit of a sweet malt hop aroma, pale orange color, a bit of a sweet taste, little bit of a hop aftertaste.
