On tap in a pint glass at Lucky's in Dayton on 8/11/12
Cloudy orange and amber. One finger head takes a long time to dissipate and leaves thick patches of lace.
Dry, spicy citrus aroma - tangerine, orange, pineapple. Hints of grass. Sweet like sugar beets and grapefruit as it warms. Sweet cracker. The taste is prickly and roughish. Herbal toughness with citrus zest and grassiness. Sharp grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Some toasted grains, but not too much malt though. Medium body with fluffy, mildly pointed carbonation. Dry finish. Bitterness grows on the finish and becomes harsh.
Overall, this is not a terrible beer, but I like my pale ales to be smoother than this.
Serving type: on-tap

Dark gold almost amber color and nearly clear. Dome like head that lasts. Surprisingly little lace on the glass.
There's a pleasant sweet stone fruit presence to this beer. Apricot? Peach? It's not too strong. I also detect a bit of floral hop, like irises. It works.
Strong grapefruit (almost like sucking a hop pellet) flavor right up front. It's strongest in the swallow which creates a long bitter aftertaste. Rich bodied with a highly elevated carbonation level.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass, bottle isn't for some reason. Pours a light yellow orange with a 2 inch white head that leaves behind some nice lace.
Smell is biscuit, caramel, lemon, pine, papaya, and grapefruit.
Taste follows the nose, a little more bitter than the nose would have you aspect, but some biscuity malt and carmel balances the bitterness.
Body is less than medium, plenty of life, a touch dry, and easy drinking.
Overall this is solid, not worth the $9, but good.
