4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hoppy on the smell. Smooth. Looks great. Good head. Nice red amber color. Taste is a little hoppy. A little malty. A little light and water on the palate. Finish is smooth.
I had low expectations looking at the other beers but this was an amazing beer. Exactly what a pale ale should be.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company (Merrimon Ave), 1/3/15
Aroma: This one has a mild nose of pale malts, and some light hops
Appearance: Pours a clear orange, with an off white head, and medium-plus lace
Flavor: It has a light hop flavor, is also light sweet, with some spice notes
Palate: It has a fairly light body, and closes with a long, somewhat dry finish
I thought this was a pretty decent one, but nothing too exciting or memorable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at the Coxe Ave brewpub. Looks decent; malty though. A transparent copper with off-white head. Smells malty too; sweet pale malt and some hops. Getting close to cloying on the nose. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as sweet. Average on the palate. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Comes out of the tap a dark amber with a respectable pale tan head. Malty aroma has a strong hoppy note that pushes it towards an IPA. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, somewhat bitter, rather IPA-ish. Texture is fizzy and smooth, if not firm. 828 is Asheville’s area code - I got your number right here!
