An absolutely beautiful poured glass of beer. Great color and just enough head. A crisp bitter flavor.

Great simple pale ale. Hoppy aroma with a slight grain sense. Not too strong. Light golden color with a thin head. Light weight and clean and crisp. This was like a light IPA. Hops up front that mellow enough to leave you wanting more. Easy to drink with food.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - APR 18, 2014
A hazy light orange beer with a medium white head. The aroma is citrus and slightly resinous hops. The flavor is similar and verges on IPA territory.

I had this at Flying Saucer. Pours dark gold with a white head. Taste bitter, grass, Carmel. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy orange with a copious amount of slowly dissipating stark white head. Very sweet nose- like caramel syrup. Some sweetness in the taste, some caramel that ends with a pretty nice cane sugar laced bitterness. This is an interesting more-sweet-than-bitter beer that’s pretty good.

UncleKorm (1319) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Can poured a hazy orange hue w/ small fizzy fully diminishing white head. Medium fruity and hay aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are hay, orange, honeydew mellon, grass, and lime zest. Medium bodied, balanced mouthfeel, and lasting bitterness in the finish.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Hazy orange pour with average white head. Aroma of fresh citrus, zesty hops, and cut grass. Flavor is also citrusy, persisting bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2016 On tap poured into a shaker. Mellow and light notes of grass and caramel start this one out, but that gives way to more fruity notes, particularly mango, orange, and assorted melon notes. It pours a golden pale color with a touch of orange and haze to it. An abundant, soft white head tops it, and slowly disappears to a thin dishwater layer, but leaves an above average lacing down the glass. The taste is very nicely balanced between medium sweetness and medium bitterness. A slick, smooth texture accompanies the medium body with a soft, yet somewhat fizzy, average level of carbonation. Mostly caramel and sweet citrus greet the tongue with a slight tartness that only appears at the swallow. There’s a zesty citrus and grass hop bitter finish, but it mellows rather quickly leaving behind a light resin and grapefruit aftertaste with some toasty malt quality to it.

Tulip glass. Velvety smooth hops odor. Malty mouth feel. The hops have a nice rich flavor.

Good solid american pale ale. But the can design alone would sell me on this.
