NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 10, 2006
Aroma carries floral, orange blossom laden hops that are only slightly piney. Almost nutty caramel malt aromas as well. Color is an orange/yellow an the large head diminshes slowly. Fore is fruity and fat with bready/sweet malts. Finish is slightly hoppy, but mostly smooth malts. Very tasty brew.

SinH4 (3729) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2017
Can on a flight from Seattle to Amsterdam. Hazy copper color with eggshell head. Aroma is piney hops, grapefruit, toasted malts, caramel. Taste is piney, grapefruit, toffee, toasted malts, earthy. Bitter finish, oily mouthfeely full-bodied. Better than expected, this is quite a classic West Coast Pale Ale.

Decent, but not great, it's easy drinking but lacks anything special. Less hops coming through than most pale ales.

944play (409) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Draft at Gordon Biersch ATL. Foggy gold with medium size off-white foam. Really exceptional minty tangerine aroma. Kind of flat in the flavor department with just some low sweetness, vague greenery, and a not-super-pleasant powdery note. Finishes with prodigious bitterness that doesnt get resinous. Gets the job done and scratches the same itches that 1500 and Pale 31 do.

Listigovers (1023) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2016
Very lright gold and clear, lots of bright sparkle. Smells of floral hop, tastes very clean and light malts with a bit of floral hop. Crisp and simple.

jjsint (2595) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Can in-flight LHR-JFK (Delta). Mid-gold, almost (but not quite) clear. Tiny white head. Enticing tangerine aroma, with grassy and tropical fruit hints. Pleasant but muted bittersweet taste, leading to a short finish with only a bit of residual fruity hop in the aftertaste. A pale ale by numbers: very drinkable but nothing to get all too excited about.

Clear golden color with white head. Medium body. light hoppy aroma and maybe something grassy. Bitter taste with a hint of malt in the after taste. Not bad.

KevinReddirt (77) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Served a one pint glass from the tap at a local pub. Appearance is a yellow giving way to a slight amber with a light off-white head. First smell is grass and citrus. The taste tends toward lemon, pine, herbs and a touch of sweetness at the end. A little hoppy. Pleasant enough, glad i tried it. It is just that IPAs hold more allure.

puboflyons (3238) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 12, 2016
From the 12 fl oz can with a stamped date of 11-23-16. Light amber and very heady white foamy pour. Lacing. Nice aroma of pine and floral elements with a background of toasted white bread. The body is near medium. The taste brings our a delightfully happy bitterness balanced with a mild sweetness. Nice beer.

NikkTwist (2900) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2016 Draft at Misconduct. Faintly hazy orange amber pour with egg-shell white foam. Wet lace. Easy-going earthy tropical fruit pale ale with only modest hints of dank. Orange pineapple. Mild woody resins. Lemongrass. Papaya. Yams. Figs. Sulfured apricots. Caffeine. Interesting but not the billed brew.
