12oz bottle from Akron area ACME FreshMarket. Pours coppery with a creamy, foamy head. Malt and hops dominate, both in taste and aroma, with a bit of pine, cereal and caramel flavors, and a hint of something floral I can’t pick out. The hop bitterness is nice but not overwhelming. Very nice and well balanced.
Aroma is caramel and malt with pine and fruit (strawberries). Malty and medium bitter beer. Good palate and texture and balance but where is the flavor? PorterPounder (8170) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Boardman, OH - Vintage Estate Beer and Wine - 12 oz bottle. Slight haze to the light copper pour, long lasting bone colored head that leaves a light film of lacing. Orange marmalade in the aroma, some light cake mix batter. Flavor has some underlying subtle bitterness, some spearmint spiciness, some bready cake mix sweetness, Decently thick mouthfeel. ganache (6005) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Bottle. Nose pine and caramel, woodsy-herbal, touch of mint, resin; pour rich deep (and hazy) golden with some darker orange/copper undertones, a rocky cream head. Clean but lightly rubbery strong bitterness, above-mentioned tones plus newfound lemony citrus, resin and wood backed way off. Moderately dry but with the threat of sweetness starting with the hops, malt is flat and the medium-full body a touch watery at times. Fine.

Appearance: Hazy medium honey amber. Finger of white foam.
Nose: Decent citrus zest. A little floral. A little white pepper.
Taste: sweeter malt blending with floral hops with a good amount of citrus to provide bite
Body: medium and lively.
Parting thoughts: A decent IPA. Perhaps a bit too floral for my tastes.

Simple, straightforward and citrus-y pale ale. Nothing to write home about, but sticky and lengthy finish, some pepper and some soapy aromas. A good hoppy pale.

, from Heinen’s, Cleveland, USA. Light/medium bit artificial, sweet but fresh aroma with berries, mango and citrus. Dark orange color with medium, slightly creamy head and hazy liquid. Medium taste with slightly parfymic fruits, pine, some citrus and a hint of malts. Bitterness and sweetness are nicely balanced. Averagely balanced with medium taste spectrum and long/medium aftertaste with slightly hoppy fruits and malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, fresh and still not too simple. Has a distinctive citrus flavor.
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a fear burnished gold with an off white head. Grassy nose. Flavors of citrus and pine. BItter finish. Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate citrus, grapefruit, pine, fruit, and a touch of caramel. It’s a transparent amber with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some good amount of thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus and light fruit. There is a hint of caramel in the background. The finish has mild grapefruit and pine. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Evolutionary (509) - Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle at Ty's house. Nose is hop but not too strong. Balanced and very clean. Weak citrus notes and full bodied for style. Decent but not amazing. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
On tap at Progressive Field. Pale bronze in colour with a nice white head. There are a variety of juicy citrus flavours from the hops, and a touch of resin as well. Interesting and very drinkable pale ale.
