Bottle at The Brickskeller, Washington DCharrisoni (19556) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2010
Hazy blond color. Strange aroma: dirty water, hazelnuts, very light vanilla, light orange peel, yellow grapes; interesting. The mouthfeel is weak, the flavor is poor, quite dry, quite bitter, with a touch of citrus. Below average.
Bottle from GBBF 2010. Gold, haze, thick lasting off white head. Some wild yeast, some decent hop on aroma. Satsuma. Even a bit like a Belgian yeast, a spicy Belgian blond even. Fine, if not overly exciting but I do like the satsuma tangerine flavours. Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2008
Golden, sparkly, with a rich head and nice lacing. Mossy hop aroma - very green. Moderately bitter body with grassy Germanic hop notes. Light straw malts. Clean, brisk and refreshing example. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 13, 2011
A: The beer pours a golden orange color with a soapy white head and some spotty lacing.
S: Starts off with a really intense hop aroma of grapefruit and other citrus fruits. Hints of grass and floral notes are also present. There is a moderate breadiness, but unfortunately also a little bit of butter.
T: Floral hops with a nice grapefruit bite up front. A touch of orange peel which adds to the moderate bitterness of the beer. Toasted malts and bread give a decent amount of sweetness.
M: Medium in body with a moderate to high carbonation.
O: Thought this was a pretty good beer overall. Pretty light and easy to drink pale ale. djd07 (16307) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
On tap at Pour 24. Pours a clear coppet with medium creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel is a smooth hop and light bitter finish. Easy to drink a very good American pale ale from Uinta.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours amberish gold with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and citric. Med body. Flavor is clean, starting a little malty and followed by a decent amount of floral and grapefruit bitter. Very flavorful for the low ABV. Would be a very good session ale. imdownthepub (15526) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2010
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Orange gold with big white head. There is an initial fruity nose with the promise of plenty of hops. This transfers in to the beer, the body is light and crisp, there is a biscuity malt, but the big star is the fruity hop flavours, there is a bitter orange alongside a sharp passion fruit type flavour, refreshing, bitter for an APA, I really liked it and proof, if it were needed, that American beers don’t necessarily have to go big.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Re-rate 5/30/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden. Hoppy aroma full of mango. Dry-ish flavor of fruity hops, a grainy hint and decent bitterness. Medium-bodied with a fluffy mouthfeel. Not bad. 7/3/6/3/14=3.3

Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear deep golden color with a medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma of lots of tropical fruits, some pine and a bit of malt. Flavor starts sweetish and somewhat grainy and finishes with mild (yet lingering) bitter fruity hops. Body’s a bit too light. OK. 7/3/6/2/13=3.1
Bottle. Poured clear amber with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly and produced fair lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of short to moderate duration. Average drinkable brew. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle from Whole Foods Charlottesville. Orange-amber pour with a large head. Decent head retention. Spicy floral hop aroma. Taste is pine and earthy hops with a weak malt backbone. Thin body.
