Sampled at Tyranena Brewery. Rather light in color. This is not a bad beer, but I am not a fan of Pale Ales, including this one. Too bitter for me.
A nice solid average pale ale. Malty with a light hop. Thin fading head. Not much hop aroma. Easy drinking clear amber with a cloud after sitting. Nice tastey bready berw. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 29, 2014
The beer is clear and light golden with a thick, white head. Aromas of muted floral hops, biscuit, malt, a hint of citrus. Bready malts with a touch of earth and subtle floral and hop notes. Thin body with light bitterness. Middle of the road pale ale. vtafro (7451) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2014
(Backlog) Bottle at fantasy tasting at Paul’s. Light pour with white head. Spice, citrus hop aromas. Flavors are sessionable but not lacking, fresh hop tones. Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Interesting sourness in a pale ale, but still plenty of hops. Taste is somewhat harmed by its mad effervescence. hotstuff (5281) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Rated on 6-02-2010 - This bottled beer pours a medium sized fizzy white head with a short retention, transparent yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, grassy, pine, and grapefruit hops. The taste is lightly bitter, malty and pine hops. The palate is tingly and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is easy to drink, but lacks any WOW factor. This is a beer that I probably will not seek out again.

From a bottle. Medium golden color with a fairly thin white head. Fairly minimal carbonation. Bread, yeast, and a bit of fruit (I want to say almost tangerine) dominate the aroma. No real hop aromas to speak of. Has a bit more of a zing to it than I expected with a bit more earthiness and cloves coming through, followed by a nice dry, just slightly bitter finish that quickly has you reaching for your glass again. If you want to step away from hugely hopped beers this is a solid, classic pale ale. RobertDale (6985) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 30, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Comes golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, pine, malt, and grass. Pretty good. akoeninger (776) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Golden colored thin white head. Smells like pine and grass. Tastes like citrus and malt. A good simple APA. Crisp and refreshing.

Pours a light, clear copper with a small white head and nice lacing. Clean, crisp citrus with traditional pine, grassy notes. A basic but well done APA.

Fresh and clear. Nice golden amber. Small creamy white head, some lasting. Light citrus, light toffee, some grass. Hoppy citrus fruity sweet. Clean and tasty. Dry bitter finish. Not bad, but nothing special.
