On draft at the Craft Ale House. This is the beer that got the night started at the CAH, and it was a great start. This APA really satisified and refreshed. It poured a dark golden color with a white head. The head left ample amounts of lacing around the glass. The nose was crisp with lots of hoppy notes, along with some pine, earth and grass. The body was extremely drinkable, with lots of crisp and spicy hoppy notes. The finish was rather dry and spicy. This was an extremely enjoyable APA.

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, pine and earthy. Taste is a mild bittersweet. Light bodied and very smooth. ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 19, 2008
On tap at Six Puapers. There was a white head on top of a dark gold body. It left very nice lacing rings. The nose is full of piney and citrus hops, with a little bready malt. The taste is well balanced, nice piney and citrus hops with a good bready/biscuty malt background. This is a very drinkable beer.

Aroma of iron and pine. Pours orange with a big sticky head. Tastes of pinewood, yeast, and rust. Not a favorite. RedSox2004 (1890) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 18, 2008
On tap at Cromwells. Red/amber color, generous frothy head and very nice lacing. Citrusy hops aroma. Strong orange flavors dominate up front, with roasted malts in the background. Resiny hops win out in the end with a crisp and dry finish. Preferred this to the pilsener.

Appearance: Pours a nice copper.
Aroma: Light hop aroma.
Taste: Light hop taste, decent malt.
Palate:Medium light body, a little slick, abrupt aftertaste
Summary: A solid and fresh pale ale.
A nice fairly average beer that is easily drinkable. Decent dark orange pour w/ a white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is subtle w/ some sweetness & hops coming through. The taste is sweet upfront & finishes a bit bitter. Has a good soft mouthfeel. Not bad! jflopsu (1613) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Pours a dark amber. Has a light malt and hop aomra (closer to an amber ale). Taste is mostly malty, with some hops, caramel, and grains. A mix of a sweet and lightly bitter malt aftertaste. GMCC2181 (1609) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2008 Draft at Washington street Ale house: Nice red amber color. Aroma was a small amount of hops. Flavor was awesome amount of citrus and floral hops, nice bitterness to it. Good texture, pretty smooth. Over all a very enjoybale beer. I wish it wasnt served so cold, it probably would of been more enjoyable.
******UPDATE*****Just had it on draft at the brewery even better! Classic hop flavor, overall a solid beer! Thanks to all the guys at the house! Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 20, 2011
THOUGHTS: Nice and pretty well made, but noting all that special. Decent balance and fairly easy to drink. Packed with flavor for a fairly low ABV beer. Not complex, but pretty well put together. Really hope the start can more of their styles.
TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear at first and then hazy by the bottom of the can, light brownish orange with a large, creamy, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma wasn’t as intense as the flavor. It had very light caramel and grain; moderate citrus hops; and lighter pine hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, moderate to heavily bitter and lightly acidic with an average to long duration. There was citrus hops, ceramel malt, pine hops, grapefruit, lemon and orange hops. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy and sticky on the lips with moderately fizzy carbonation and a dry and lightly metallic finish.
