Very organic taste. Fresh, yet subsided by the stuff that makes things organic. It seems this brew was a solid pale ale at first but then went through a clarifying process that dumbed it down some. Its still solid, yet lacks the hop bite and forcefullness that would make it a super pale ale. Bronzed copper in color, a head the digs deep at first and then simmers down to a flat striaght while always there. Organic wheat and soli mix the smell with tangerine and citrus running in the background. Very fresh taste, very likeable brew. A solid, though less than stellar, pale ale. 12oz bottle poured into a Cabin 2011 Pilsner glass. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2011
(12oz bottle best by Jul 18, 2011 thanks to Dixonian) clear orange-ish with a ring of white bubbles. Nose of umami, orange/grapefruit, pine, a bit candied citrus, and bread. Taste of bread, candied citrus, spicy, and rye. An oily body with a nice linger. hellbilly (3248) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2011

Strong grapefruit aroma. Light colored. Lots of grapefruit and resin. Oily mouthfeel. Moderate level of bitterness. Should be good, but didn’t speak that much to me. Voodoo (675) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Pours a deep golden color with a fair head. A well built pale with heavy hop presence and a slight bitter aftertaste. Hops have that piney, floral notes of possibly Cascade. With a manageable alcohol content a quite refreshing pale.

A nice crisp refreshing pale ale with lots of flavor. A good beer when it’s way too hot for hop devil. Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Overall a really good pale ale. There’s not really anything else to say. Victory is awesome. drjay44 (3740) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2012
12 oz.bottle. Pours a thin, short duration white head, over a clear, light amber (SRM7) body....nose is citrus, pine, toffee....taste is pine, grapefruit peel, light toffee.caramel, touch of cereal, finishing with a medium resin layer....mouth feel medium, carbonation high. This is a fairly typical APA. It has a nice hop bite, balanced by the malts, finishing clean and crisp. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7 MrBeerFanatic (1064) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Medium amber with orange hues and a big puffed up white head. Big pure/zesty aromas of fruity citrus and some floral hops with just a hint of caramel. Flavors big on apricot, with an overall fruit/floral hop zest. Light resin with a bitter finish. A solid pale that is mostly like an ipa but the apricot flavor stands out more so than most of the other flavors of hops. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2012
This one pours a crystal clear light red to deep orange and head is off white and lasting. Nose lend emmense toasty, biscuity, bready and earthy malts. Hop nose is mostly citrus, fruits and light resins. Flavor is some earthy hood then come in with toasted and biscuit malts and finishes out with mixed citrus hops. Medium body and crisp mouthfeel. easy to drink. Earthy hop and malt forefront. Not bad. not life changing.
