UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 Draft at Irish Pol. Hazy amber pour with soft white foam. Malty, earthy, and floral. Mandarins. Autumn leaves. Barley bread. Grape vines. Lots of woody tannins. Solid use of Cascade hops. UPDATE: The more I have had it, the more I feel the need to mention that older kegs of this beer have an awful aftertaste. italianjohn (3251) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On tap at the Hulmeville poured an amber color with off white head left some lacing lots of floral aroma and you get the initial citrus sweet taste even some caramel then the nice piney hop after and slight spice very sessionable not that heavy really enjoyed this one a good APA merc7186 (3160) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2013
The beer pours great with a nice orange, reddish hue to it, it has an amazing off white head that lingers on and on and great lacing on the glass. (EDIT: The beer stil had head going after I completed this review, 5 minutes later). The smell is decent with a nice blend of malt and hops that blends nicely together and a hint of citrus on the back end. The taste is much the same with the malty taste, followed by the hops that hangs around on the back end with a mild resin flavor. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and well cabonated. Overall, when I had got this beer, I didnt give it much of a chance but that changed after having tried it. Highly recommended. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2013
A very nice beer. Pours a hazy light amber with a foamy head. The aroma was loaded with citrus and pine. The flavor was nice with a malt beginning and lots of hops at the end. User37895 (3085) - - MAY 11, 2007
On draft at The Six Paupers. Pour was an orangey golden color with an ok initial head, weak retention, ok lacing. The aroma was orangey, some other citurs and floral notes. The flavor was orangey malty, followed by orangey citrus notes, very light floral, and a fairly zingy spicey hoppy finish. Mouthfeel was full bodied, average carbonation, substantial malty presence. A nice beer.

Medium sized, rocky white head with god retention and a surprisingly nice lace. Clear copper orange hued ale, nice lookin. Nose is ripe with peppery hops, citrusy, fruity and hint tropical. Body is lightly medium, nice carbo level. Nice orangey flavors with a lightly sweet caramel malt backing, spicey and fruity, little lemon and faint pine. Dry, citrusy finish, even a little juicey. Nice APA! Can from Suburbinliquorstore, newark DE. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draft at North Star on 5/20/11.
Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a one finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a thin lasting ring. Streaks of spay lacing left behind.
Earthy aroma with lots of piny hops and citrus along with a caramel malt presence. More hop forward in the nose than expected with hints of pine needle, pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel. Looks and smells pretty good.
Medium bodied but lighter than expected and less hoppy than the aroma suggests. Subtle crisp hop bite up front with earthy pine and very faint citrus but I was really let down at how weak the hops were given the nose. Slight lactic creaminess and a prominent malt backbone.
Overall this beer wasn’t bad. It looked and smelled pretty nice but the flavor was a bit of a let down. Quaffable and refreshing in this warm weather but sort of bland.

Pours a copper color with a foamy off white head. Watery mouth feel. Biscuits, brown sugar, and citrus. Bit bland. Slipstream (2702) - USA - DEC 31, 2014
This is a pretty smooth & sweet pale ale. I tasted caramel and a dash of yeast, It is well balanced and not aggressively hopped. A good brew. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Draft. Pours orange with a small head and minimal lacing. Taste is light, crisp and has some sweetness. The finish is a bit on the yeasty side with some mild bitterness. This is okay, nothing too exciting.
