Aroma of citrus and fruit, amber colour with a short head. A well balanced taste mildly bitter and a mix of dried fruit and citrus. A mildly bitter palate.

For a pale ale this packs a pretty heavy nose full of hop aroma. Beautiful amber color. Taste is solid cascade IPA fare. Honestly this tastes like what a standard cascade brewed IPA should taste like. Which is good, if a little boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge citrus infusion here. Sharp and poignant lemon zest with some sugary malt. Finishes bitter and a little sour. Slightly opaque orange pour with ok head and lacing. Slick on palate. Cask at Churchkey.

Charleston bottle. Nice and easy drinking hoppy brew. Big caramel malt backbone that matches the citrus bitterness very well. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a clear dark gold color with a thick white head that unfortunately dampens any aroma. Balanced taste of malt and hops, pretty average for an APA. Very slight dry finish. Not bad but nothing special.

Decent tropical nose, but way too much malt for a pale ale, especially an american pale. On tap at Buckeye 18 Jan 14

Green can into pint glass, clear amber-golden color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and floral/fruity hops. Taste adds notes of graininess, somewhat herbal and piney hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry, creamy with citrus bitter finish. Pretty tasty APA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. clear light copper pour with a big off white head that seem to last a long time. Caramel, soda, hey, floral, pine. Light to medium body with relatively strong carbonation and bitter but smooth finish. A bit too bitter considering the body and aroma.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent pale ale from Virginia (probably a small town) that has a good backbone and represents a decent pale ale without any kicker or defining hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuty aroma, with some hop notes. Pours a clear amber with a moderate white head. Caramel notes, with hop bitterness running past them. The bitterness lingers for a while, with some pine notes. Just a touch too hoppy to be balanced, but just barely out of balance. Very drinkable, and a decent APA.
