Pours a nice orangy-yellow with a pale head. Citrusy and hoppy aroma with a nice clean pale ale taste. Just a touch of lingering bitterness. Overall, a very nice pale ale from a local brewery.

Pours orange yellow with a little bit of white head. Slight citrus to the odor. Its got the crisp taste of most pale ales, but with a nice citrus hop aftertaste. One of the better American Pales Ive had.

At the brewery. Straight up pale ale. Crisp. Clean. Nicely done. While not exciting, not bad at all. Drinkable.

Poured yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus. Pretty good hop presence in this one. Light and watery finish. Good session brew.

Bottle from BeastieFan2k (aka Peter Parker aka Spiderman aka Webslinger aka That Russian Jew). Not that pale, if you ask me. Certainly not Extra Pale. More like a light auburn, or a dirty gold. Foam is fleeting, sitting only lightly upon the top of the beer, like spit in an ocean. Light does pass through, but minorly so. Through the bottom of the glass this appears as honey, yet leaves no legs with vigorous swirling. MaLtY oUt.

Bottle thanks to ucusty. Pours a golden color with a white head. Very little aroma and has a decent body. Not enough flavor for me though. Decent beer for the style.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2008
From bottle : Pours a clear carbonated medium gold color, with a finger of white foamy head, with nice lacing. My nose is a tad bit stuffy right now, but i can still smell tons of big citrus hops coming out of this thing. Some malt backbone. Taste is nice, hoppy with a balance of malt. It gets a little thin a watery toward the end, that would be my only complaint. Medium body through the first part, with a sticky palate, and a faint hop aftertaste. Decent APA.

asedzie (813) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Tap at ATL airport brewpub. Pours copper with moderate tan head, lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, pine, light toffee, overall quite pungent. There is a bit of herbal-type skunkiness my gf said maybe thats why its 420. Flavor is sticky caramel maltiness, lightly sweet fruitiness, piney resin. Moderate lingering bitterness and pine needle flavor in the finish. Palate is creamy, lightly oily.

This is by far one of the better american pale ales out there. I had two in Georgia and i was impressed. The aftertaste was mute and made it a very session-able beer.
