Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Dark golden color, a bit cloudy. Slight malty aroma. Good - definitely tastes hoppy but malty too. Good plae ale.

Bottle from Carolina Ale House. Banana colored. Good head and decent retention. Hoppy aroma, notes of pepper. Complex, less bitter than expected. Nice balance of sweetness. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Poured from 12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Cloudy orange/yellow color, firm bittersweet aroma with prominent citrus features, small white head, moderate bittersweet flavor--not bad at all, could see this as a session brew

DialSquare (2599) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2014
12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory. Gold pour with slight off-white head. Aroma is bready malt, earthy, butter. Tastes are grainy malt, pear and citrus hops. Little yeasty in the finish. Strange. Not great.

Not my favorite, but decent ale on tap at the Blowing Rock brewery and brew house

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2013 This ?apa? is of a loose translation on the style. Refreshing aroma, syrupy texture. Taste is wheat, flowers, fruit and cereal. Therefore, it tastes like fruit loops. Well not really, but more like fruity cheerios.

Pours a clear very light amber. Small frothy white head, fairly lasting. Dry earthy hops, little toasty, pilsner malty, light straw, honey. Light body. Light earthy hoppy light bitter finish. Good drinkability. Lawnmower beer.

Good after workout beer. Goes down strong and finishes smooth. Overall a great American pale ale

Steverus0 (158) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Hazy straw topped with a pale, persistent head, this brew is a nice balance between bold American hop character and drinkability. While it doesn't wow, it's a beer you could enjoy a six pack of and not feel as though your taste buds had been assaulted. Citrusy hop character and persistent orange notes leveled off by sweet malt that leaves enough bitterness to satisfy. Acidic, dry finish great for a crisp afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leafs93 (1658) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours copper with an off white(tannish) head. Aroma is caramel, bread and a trace of citrus. Taste is malty sweet with hardly any bitterness. Light bodied with a smooth texture. Not what I would classify as an APA.
