3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Balanced malty and hoppy flavors leading to a somewhat bitter ending. Missing some punch, some citrus. Not bad, but a bit bland.

hazy orange pour. Nose is light citrus and fruity hops with some malty undertones. Flavor is similar. medium body with a light lingering bitter finish.
Decent. Not one thing jumps out at me about this beer. Can’t pick out any pronounced hop aromas or flavors just a little muddled overall but ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, light golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some light citrus with some earthy notes. It has a light body with watery texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly bittersweet, but only for second before it quickly finishes smooth and easy.

Most people don’t realise that the south is well known for its PA’s and IPA’s. North Carolina is probably best known but do not overlook Tennessee.
