Can in the Outer Banks, NC. Yellow orange pour with a one finger head. Aroma pine, malts, and light citrus. Taste is malty for a pale ale with a well balanced, almost dry bitter finish. Notes of pine and citrus. Bitterness lingers. A good Pale ale.

On tap. Soapy aroma. Tart choppiness dominates - more lemon than tangerine - and gives way to an oaky maltiness. Quaffable.

drowland (6579) - Georgia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Light amber pour with a small khaki head. Nice but light aroma, citrus, tropical fruits, pine, and a small but nice malt balance. Really nice flavor... digging this one. Nice bitterness balanced well with bready malts, lots of hop character, citrus, pine, fruity, and more. Nice!

Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Aromas of caramel, sweetness, subtle spiciness, and hop bitterness. Very smooth and a long finish.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 11, 2013

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12oz can. Pours a clear amber color with a one finger dense foamy head that that leaves some lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy, with a hint of citrus. Taste has malt flavors of biscuit and bread that are well balanced with pine, grassy and grapefruit hops. A nice piney bitterness lingers through the finish. Medium bodied and somewhat creamy with moderate carbonation.

Beergeek23322 (2589) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2013
October 2012. One of the better VA pale ales Iíve found. Nice bitter finish from this one. Amber color, malt, citrus, fruity aromas.

Bottle @ Bizou, Cíville. The pourís amber with a small head. The nose is toast, orange peel. A bit of fresh-cut grass. Slightly herbal. Not a massive, expressive nose. A bit faded. The taste is caramel-dipped orange peel. Toasted brown bread. Caramel malt. Mildly bitter on the finish. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, probably not the freshest bottle out there. Iíll have to revisit.
