16oz can thanks to RobertDale! Pours a hazy, glowing, full orange with a massive, dense, buttermilk head. Big retention and spotty/webby lacing. Nose is dusty, mild butterscotch, ground walnuts. Taste is woody, dusty, chalky, small cantaloupe. Palate nearly astringent, but very minerally, big slate. chalk. Interesting. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2012
Shared can at Papsoe’s summer tasting. Pours a shimmering bright gold, topped by a low blond head. Light fruity hop aroma; Tropical, oranges and faint lemon. Medium malt body, lightly toasted with a caramel note. Clean fruity bitterness. Balanced malty/bitter ending. A decent, straightforward pale ale.

16 oz. can. It pours a bright orange color with a nice white head. The aroma has some dry grainy malts with some orange, spicy hops, and a touch of florals. Not really that strong on the aroma. The flavor is pretty much the same with stronger bitterness than I expected. Good hop flavor with noticeable, floral and orange with some citrus rind in the finish. Dry grainy malts come through. Dry finish. I was surprised there were Galaxy hops in here, as I didn’t pick up much tropical fruit. Just the orange. Overall, this was a nice enjoyable APA. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2012

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Hazy gold,heady from a can,good lacing.
Kind of a dry toasty,hoppy aroma with fruit/floral,spice,slight funk almost but with subtle melon/bubblegum,not picking up the tropical much.
Taste is foamy/soft but dry toasty/hoppy with a very dry finish,mildly grassy but almost strong citrus bitter.Some sweetness. Real dry and woody-seems oxidized maybe.Foamy but dry and light tasting with strong hoppiness.Not bad. Good for a lighter type pale ale. LiMuBai (222) - - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 Big fat foamy head, nice lacing down the glass. A cloudy, light/golden amber. Hoppy Aroma. The finish is a bit on the harsh side. nielsedd (79) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Can. Pours a hazy light orange color with big fluffy white head that diminishes quickly and stays at about half a finger. I don’t get a lot in the nose so it must not be the freshest, but I’ve had before so rating from what I remember as well. Smells of biscuit and citrus. Similar in the taste with a very strong grapefruit present at the end. Overall a very nice pale ale. 1pintatatime (162) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Nice foamy head. Crisp and creamy at the same time with a grapefruit finish.

Can thanks to 17thfloor. Awesome can by the way. Pours a bright slightly hazy golden orange with a small lingering white head. Aroma is floral and a bit grassy, nice soft malt backbone. Flavor has plenty of grassiness with some sweet bready and honey notes. Finishes with some citrus and light bitterness. Medium body and a sharp carbonation.
