Review from 6/2011 notes. Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a golden yellow amber. Half finger head dissipates to a thin film leaving lacing. Aromatic hops noticeable on opening the bottle; aroma of aromatic hops and citrus, faint malt. Flavor is mild to moderate hops, a light malt body and citrus. Finishes with citrus and a moderate hop kick. Very nicely done. Definitely the nicest pale ale I've had. Bravo

For such a simple beer, made with only pale malt and amarillo hops, there is a lot going on taste wise. This beer has citrus and grassy flavors and a good balance between hops and malt. Effervescent and perfect for a summer day. This is my go-to summer beer. So good!

Pours a light golden color with really nice head and some good lacing. One of my favorite aspects of this beer is the look. In fact, I'm not sure that I've seen a pale ale that looks this good. Smell is pretty mild. I get some floral notes, but it's fairly muted. Tastes great! Slight floral taste, but also a huge citrus taste that dominates - grapefruit, lemon, orange. Fairly pronounced bitterness, but it's very pleasant. I haven't had many pale ales but this is the best tasting one I've had thus far. Really really good stuff.

Appearance. Pours a lightly hazy golden straw with half a finger of white head.

Smell. Nice bright citrus fruits, some toasty light grains, a bit of orange marmalade and pineapple and slightly floral. Smells goood.

Taste. Toasty light grains and citrus fruits. Light bitterness and just a bit of sweetness. Clean and very tasty.

Mouthfeel. Below medium body with below medium carbonation.

Overall. Really nice beer and perfect for the season. The sun is shining and this beer pairs with it fantastically!

Great choice, ArchEnemyBrew! Thank you.
