Aroma: The nose has lots of pine citrus, and resiny hops with some toasty caramel
Appearance: A mostly clear orange-copper color with a bubbly white head
Flavor: Taste has a mild sweetness up-front, but is overpowered by the strong bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium with a somewhat dry and sticky mouthfeel
Overall, this is a very nice example of the APA style. The taste is decent, but the nose is really quite nice, and make the beer in my opinion. I really liked what I was getting even before taking a sip of this one. A nice;y done beer, here.
Location: From Rozi’s Wine and Beer, Lakewood, Ohio

Palate: Midly fizzy aftertaste.
Overall Impression: This beer was recommended to me while I was looking for local beers at Rozi’s Beer and WIne. Solid beer.
Golden color with a big thick beige head and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and sweet malts. Flavor of citrus hops and a little caramel malt. Finish is pretty hoppy and bitter. Nephilium (1817) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Nice clean hoppy aroma. Pours a clear amber, with a lot of visible carbonation, and a large white head. Caramel malts are the predominant flavor, with just a bit of hop bitterness coming through, with a touch of pine in the finish. Very drinkable, with a nice balance.

A good, solid pale ale. The pour is a clear amber and the aroma is fresh and full of hops. The flavor is malty with piney hops and some spice. A very easy drinking, good pale ale.

draft at TBK- damn fine pale ale- the hops were a bit muted, but very appropriate for the style- citrus domination- with slight resin- nicely done. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Enough with the pales, oh alright. This was my second. This one has more hops and a good amount of juicyness. Some malts to balance the flavor, good body. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Ringneck 4 cs pale ale sweetish aroma caramel with good amounts of c hops toast too. Amber wqith golden hints and great head like all their beers so far. Sweet initiqally with toast caramel and good medium bitterness that cleanses palate. Went nicely with fajitas.
