Had this one on draught as part of a sampler from the brewpub in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. Dark reddish-brown pour with a thin, off-white head. Fruity, citrusy nose with a huge grapefruit and spicy hops presence in the flavor, finish is softer and nice and balanced. I liked this one a lot!

Draft pint at Bearden Beer Market. Clear orange-amber with a lasting head. Slight nose of caramel, citrus and resin. Flavor is a very nice blend of the same, with a nice toasted pecan note as well. Light-medium body is a bit hop-tingly, and smoothly carbonated.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottled. Absolutely hit my need for a drinkable, hoppy, ale for working on a hot day...not light by any means thou. Strong but sweet hops give a crisp clean snap.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Trader Joe in Nashville on my trip there. Wow... huge off-white head, very long-lasting and creating patchy lacing all over. Pretty hoppy nose with some other fruits (apples, grapefruits, oranges). Colour is golden-amber with lots of carbonation. Very bitter start to the flavours with the hop being right in your face and then going through clementines. The hoppy bitterness stays the whole way through and into the long lasting aftertaste. I would have to say, this is a powerful American Pale Ale, well-balancing the bitter hop and the sweet fruits.
