3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a quite enjoyable evening at the Blue Ridge Brewing Co. in downtown Greenville, SC yesterday, now to submit my evaluations of their brews. First up was this pale ale, which begins with a clear pale amber color, good lacing but not much head. Has a sweet fresh aroma of fruity hoppiness. The flavor is roasty malt, a little earthy, with a good medium-bodied texture. Maybe a hint of cocoa (?) in the flavor, or maybe I'm misreading a subtle caramel note. Has a unique tropical finish.
Good!!! but not as good as their stout.
Either way I recommend giving this brew-pub a visit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear gold with a large sudsy head. Nice yeasty/citrus aroma. The flavor starts very non-dimemo and finishes with an unpleasant hop flavor that is piney to the point of a soapy flavor. The mouthfeel is thin with heavy carbonation. An unpleasantly off aftertaste follows. Even though I enjoy heavy hops, this beer needs more than just bitterness to be good

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served from tap into a standard pint. Pours a nice amber color with a minimal white head. There was no apparent lacing. The aroma consisted only of malt. The flavor of this beer was not as good as I had expected as it only really consisted of a weak malt with a little bit of spiciness to it. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this one was kind of bland in flavor. It does make up for this in drinkability and is quite drinkable, just not enough for me to order another.
