On tap at the brewpub. Served in a standard shaker glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of white head with decent retention.

Smell: A pretty nice crisp and juicy aroma with hints of citrus and floral hops. Citrus hop hints of orange, grapefruit, melon, and lemon along with the added orange peel. Hints of floral and herbal hops. Soft malt hints of caramel, biscuit, cracker, and yeast. Pretty citrus forward.

Taste: Like it smells, juicy and earthy with some good notes of citrus fruit and herbs. Upfront citrus notes of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, melon, and apricot. Also some floral and grassy hops with some pine. Pale malt notes of caramel, grains, cracker, and yeast. A very solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, clean, and drying.

Overall: A pretty solid citrus forward Pale Ale. Good juicy orange citrus flavor with a moderate body and bitterness.

Had this on 2012-08-16 in Minneaplolis, MN at the brewery (from tasting notes)

A - Orange gold with a 1-finger tan head and decent lacing.

S - Light orange flesh, pale malt and a whiff of hop floral (food odors present).

T - Hop forward, then orange marmelade and oragne zest. Light malt, crushed hop bud grass and tea. Dries quickly with a lightly-lingering citric bitterness and bits of the aforementioned flavors. Tastes great. Not sweet like the name would suggest.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Crisp, refreshing and a little prickly.

O - Definitely one of the top contendors in the sessionable pale ale category.

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.
