This beer arrived a cloudy orange color. The head is half on inch in height, and recedes quickly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit with other citrus notes. The taste is quite bitter for a pale ale with some citrus note. Quite honestly, I thought the bitterness masked the taste of the beer too much for my liking. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a nice beer. However, being that Town Hall makes so many great beers I can't see myself drinking this again.

This was one of the first THB beers I ever tried, way back, and I remember finding its use of Amarillo was great. It has been a while since I've had it...but here goes. Served in a nonic, pours a clear deep dark copper with an almost off-white head with good retention. Hmmm, this is good but I'm not finding it quite as great as I remembered it. Nose and Taste are completely in line with one another: lots of ripe citrus, a little tangerine peel bitterness, and a little earthy spiciness, and a whole lot of caramel bready maltiness. Body is a little heavier than an ideal pale, imo, and though the flavors all come together, with a hoppy bitterness, the body affects the finish. My palate might be affected by Simcoe smash I had before this one, but it isn't quite singing the way I remembered it. Still good, though.

another really tasty hop driven beer from these guys. this one is very much in the english style, hops balanced by a richer crystal malt with a nice caramelized sort of flavor, and it is spiked with orange peel, giving it a clean citrus complexion but also with the grain a nice baked dessert vibe, really pretty layered and complex. a shade lighter than copper in color with a tall white head. smells like oily and bitter orange peel, with a grassy and piney hop profile, the two work really well together. the grain is bready and just a touch sweet, its an awesome base for the more summery flavors in here, and it provides some needed body. nice job with the hops here, very fresh and forward, and balanced just enough. carbonation is higher throughout, which makes me appreciate the larger body even more, big but quick, hearty but also refreshing. these guys have the hoppy stuff on lock and this this definitely another great one. one of the better citrus added pales or ipas i have had in this recent trend.

I had this on-tap at Town Hall Tap. Served in a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a layer of off white head that sticks around quite nicely.

Smell: I'm getting some toasted malt along with a nice citrus hop note. This isn't a very strong smelling beer.

Taste: Nice balance to this beer. Citrus peel hops along with a slightly fruity hop component. The finish is hoppy and rather bitter.

MouthfeeL: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was a really solid pale ale. The hop profile was very well done and it was quite easy to drink. I'd have another.

Draft. Pours a orange/gold color with a slight tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is of hops with slight fruit notes. Initial taste is the orange qickly followed by the hops. Strong hops presence. Lingering bitterness. Medium/Light mouthfeel. Pretty tasty.

On tap at Town Hall in June 2010. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a nice orange-copper color tending toward orange with a nice white head and a good amount of lacing. The nose is really quite nice with a good dose of hops and a lot of orange peel. The taste is a bit bitter with some nice orange...well, marmalade. Feel is nice and bitter with a bit of orange pith. Drinks quite well; nice and sessionable.
