This is the kind of blond ale that comes off as a lighter version of an APA. This isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but I happen to quite like lighter American ales so it works quite well for my tastes. This is a pale orange beer w/ a short lived head of big, soapy-looking bubbles. Aroma and taste are sort of light and lager-ish but w/ a hint of ale like fruitiness. Hopping is bright and refreshing. It seems to me to be a mix of American and noble hops, combining some citric notes w/ a bit of herbal complexity. Perhaps it might be American grown noble varieties, which taste similar. Texture is light and dry but there is a bit of viscosity w/o there being any stickiness. This is a really well done beer. CamdenD (1204) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 7, 2012
Crisp, nearly seltzer like. Hops very noticeable. Drinks pretty much like a session IPA. Great summer. Gets a bit drying after a while. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to mikem409: Poured a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is slight hoppiness and floral. Taste is nice refreshing grain and sweet corn with a nice hops bite to finish off a great summer beer.

Bottle. Poured golden with a white head. Aroma of grass, floral hop, and hints of spices. The flavor found floral hop with a light backing of spices and malt. Light body, crisp, and a mild hop throughout. Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 1, 2012

Bottle at Pizza Port. Catpiss, grass, and citrus aroma with some biscuity malts. Hoppy flavor, light malts, too much catpiss for me, but maybe that’s age? A bit harsh on the hops, though nicely refreshing and tasty.

12 oz. Bottle. Lemon zest, light hop aroma. Deep golden, coppery pour with a half inch white head and decent lacing. The palate was a little lighter than medium with a crisp finish. Floral, perfume hop fronted taste with a citrus note in the middle and a hint of a malt finish.
