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 (3249) - 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 (667) - 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 (3710) - 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 zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2012
Pours amber-orange with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is subtle, of hops, pine, citrus, and floral notes with a dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable, lighter brew, not bad. Dorwart (2590) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2012
Nice strong bright white head of dense bubbles. Bit o cream on top. Initial slight skunkiness which dissipates to a plethora of citrus aromas, lemon, grapefruit and light grassy malts. Color is a mdium brownish orange. Substantial bitterness up front along with some light roasted grains and grapefruit pith. Little bit of dry chalkyness late swallow and lingering full on bitterness. A pretty good APA.
