Have had this from a 12oz bottle and on tap at the brewpub. A nice drinkable American pale. jredmond (8508) - New York, New York, USA - APR 2, 2011

From flight at The Ginger Man, NYC, 18/12/11. Hazy orange heaped with head and condition. Grapefruit, maybe guava, green stems aroma. Sherbety tingle, lemon zest hop, biscuit linger. An underplayed, tangy wine gum character; some botanical, almost Belgian impressions. Very pleasant. PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 Rerate Very refreshing on a hot day spent in downtown Cleveland - up a notch or two. Much smoother this time around. Original 3.2 Medium orange pour, slightly sparkling with a soft, lilting, dissipating quickly white head. Faint aroma - pick up hints of pepper, ripening fruit, pleasant. Flavor has a good subtle bitterness to it with touches of citrus and some sweet biscuity malty notes. Cluttered finish - left me thirsty. A pleasant change of pace from the west coast over-hopped APAs but not overly exciting. Thanks to Aurelius for saving this out of his Ale-in-the-Mail shipment.

Sampled at the Two Brothers tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 5/21/09. Clear amber color with a big khaki head. Grainy malt aroma with honey and some hop. Grainy malt flavor with somewhat of a bitter finish.

This one came to me in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bronze color with large orange-white head. The aroma was fairly strong sour grapefruit and pine. The flavor was sour nutty malts and strong grapefruit and pine. There is an interestingly complex sweet and tart nature to this beer. I am surprised it is not rated higher. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2006
12-ounce bottle. Copper color, fairly well headless and the lace looks more like trub. Has a bready nose with not much else going on...and a little hop finish with not much else going on. Maybe this is what happens when people brew a style out of a sense of *having* to have it on the roster? It doesn’t seem like it was brewed by anyone who really likes pale ales much in the first place, let alone wanted to make one that stands out. Well-enough made but uninspired.

12 fl. oz bottle, thanks to BA richgo6. 12.5 degrees Plato, 36 IBU. ABV is 5.1%.
Amber coloured beer, decent off-white head. Very nice aroma of fruity hops, notes of grapefruit, rambutan and blackcurrant leaves, hints of toffee and resin too. The flavour is maltier and less hoppy than the aroma made me expect, but the hops are still noticeable. Moderate resiny notes, some sweetness, quiet finish. Not bad.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy light amber. Aroma is moderately hoppy (resin, pine), lightly malty (toasted bread). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Whoa nelly, that's a bitter brew. Not a fan of this resinous, piney hop style, though. larsga (7625) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2007
Thin offwhite head. Orange body with yeast particles. Sweetish mango hop aroma with sharpish catty hop notes. Some straw as well. Dry straw and malt taste with citric mango hop notes. A bit watery, but still nice. (0.355l bottle at RBNAG’07.)
