Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper, very slight off-white head - a touch of lace. Aroma is pleasant, a hint of spruce, some apricot fruitiness. Flavor is solid and well balanced with some solid grapefruit bitterness, a touch of yeasty bready notes, some minty side notes. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Nothing unique or special, but a good solid drink. DrunkSanta410 (960) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a bright amber / red. Aroma is mild caramel malts and slight piney hops. Taste is hoppy, pine with a well rounded malt backbone bringing hints of caramel and toast. Fades to a solid bitterness. Palate is creamy, med to high carbonation. Overall a delicious beer. Well rounded. zvikar (6218) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 2, 2014

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours hazy amber with cream colored head. Aroma of citrus. Taste of citrus and beer. Good beer. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a mahogany colored body that leaves a one finger white foamy head that concaves into the body within about twenty seconds.
The smell is based around some citrus and floral yet somewhat sweet hops. Some light malty oatiness comes out as the beer warms.
The taste takes the smells and adds a nice sweet yet somewhat bitterness.
The palate sits about a medium sort of feel indicating a great balance of wateriness to thickness. This is fairly sessionable.
Overall, though the beer has some nice qualities that are different for the style, it is still good for the style and good enough for me to have some more.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a ring of cream colored head. Aroma very citrus up front, especially oranges and peaches. Taste is a more balanced beer with malts joining in the party. Pleasantly surprising beer. beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JAN 24, 2014

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, pear, apple, caramel, biscuit, oats, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, pear, caramel, biscuit, toffee, oats, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, pear, caramel, biscuit, oats, toffee, floral, grass, light pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale. Good balance and complexity of hop and malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
