The employee favorite! One of my favorites there as well. Copper color, crisp and easy drinking with a very nice malt/hop balance but this is pretty well hopped for a Pale Ale, grapefruit and floral notes come to mind. Good beer and light enough to be a strong session choice.

@HopfestNC-pours a dissipating white head and yellow color. Aroma is mild citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops-some bitter, secondary medium malt. Comes across as also having German Perle hops or being an English PA even if brewer notes says cascade. OK carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub 2/1/08: Pours a transparent dark bronze copper with a full-lacing froth of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet crystal malts and some mild orange hoppy presence. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramely malt with a light grapefruity hoppy balance finishing crisp and bittersweet. A pretty good APA.

Slightly cloudy gold/orange. Nice head. Cheerios and peppery aroma (better than that sounds). Decent hop flavor throughout. Rather one dimensiona, but a still a good session ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Greenville. Dark orange pour - initial rocky white head that dissipates after a while. Decent floral aroma with hints of mint. Flavor has a nice subtle underlying bitterness with just the right amount of citrus. First sip - I immiediately sadi to myself - SNPA clone. Thickish, clean mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 Date: 12/23/2006
hazy copper, fine dirty white head, lots of lace,
light sweet caramel malt aroma with nice citrus,
lots of great grapefruit hop flavor, just enought slightly sweet caramel malts to provide the amount of balance needed to make this a great hop delivery system,
Score: 3.6 to 3.4
picking up some dyactyl in both the aroma and flavor that along with a reduction in hops gives it an English character,
Score: 3.4 to 3.2
dyactyl is still present but more hops hides it pretty well and brings it back to the American side, touch of astrengency in the bitterness
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 8/10; Overall: 12/20
