Served on-tap at the brewery on March 26th, 2013
A - Cloudy orange with two fingers of off white head, thick lacing.
S - Grassy, and very earthy hops, rye, pepper, biscuit, smells very spicy.
T - Earthy spicy hop resin, bread malt, light floral notes, kinda bland.
M - Medium feel, typical pale.
O - Really disappointing, not sure why, because I've heard good things about this plenty of times prior. Hopefully my review will change once bottles come out.

Appears a brilliant copper slight ruby hue to it nice caramel malts came to play, with a whole lot of hops.
Aroma bright citrus notes with big tropical fruit hanging around with each sniff including papaya, mango, a bit of passionfruit in there as well. This is well made pale ale, it’s as hoppy as most IPAs but more flavorful with a moderate level of bitterness only 55 IBUs but it’s kickin’ ass.
Flavor has a strong malt presence some nice caramelization, complemented with big expressive hop notes again with the tropical fruit citrus and herbaceous pine notes in the backend. I could drink this in number without effort, glad to also see it on tap in the Burgh...cans can be found at Fat Head’s in the Southside intermittently that’s where I sourced my six pack.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied even carbonation slick oily hop textures on the palate pretty great tasting beer. Full on lingering hop finish, very nice pleasant experience with each sip.
Overall, I’m down with this beer…quintessentially one of the best pale ales I’ve ever had hands down!

Wife brought this gem home from a recent visit to Ohio. The beer poured a cloudy copper with thin white head that laced. The scent was mostly malt with hints of subtle pine. The taste was decent balance between malt and bitter hops....orange peel was present throughout. The mouthfeel medium body with good carbonation. Overall a solid sessionable Pale Ale.

This poured a bronze to light copper with a dense highly retentive white head.
The scent was all hops with bountiful floral and citrus aromas. I caught gragefruit, lemon, pine needle, cannabis and resin.
Pale Ale my ass! This has so much hop character that it revivals any DIPA. I actually get no malt character at all but grapefruit, tangerines, lemon, pine, leafy cannabis and floral hop cone.
The feel is a tad too astringent and leaves a resinous metallic aftertaste. Otherwise, it moves smoothly across the palate and is easy through and through.
