On tap at Johnnyís Pizza in Cartersville. Hazy orange color. Strong aroma of pink grapefruit....so Iím happy about that. The flavor doesnít disappoint. Tons of grapefruit. Not quite enough malt to back it up, but still, I love it. The carbonation isnít overwhelming either. Almost like a real ale.

5/8/14. On tap at Bleu Pub. Almost clear light amber orange pour with a small khaki head. Actually very surprised by this beer. Dank hop aroma, bright at first, gets more dank with warmth, touches of acidic lemon peel. Nice flavor, but not mind blowing. Dank, some citrus, a bit malty, pale malts and caramel popping through. Not bad at all.

On draft at the brewery, poured a dark orange - amber color with aromas of light fruit, oranges and banana, with some citrus hops added. Flavors were the same as the aromas with some light bitterness or orange peel in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Decatur Craft Beer Fest. Pours gold, with a big, white head. The aroma leaps out with hop notes of citrus, honeysuckle, and light pine. Behind the hops lie some notes of whole grain bread. The hop bitterness is quite assertive, with only a little, mellow sweetness to balance it. Medium body, with a sticky and astringent mouthfeel. The wonderful aroma is the highlight of this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer was on and off at Brick Store for a week and I kept managing to miss it. Finally, got a taste last Friday. Damn glad I did. Pours a hazy light amber with white head. Scent is of light fruit and grain. The word "refreshing" repeatedly popped into my head whilst drinking this brew. Instead of having a sweet/bitter front or end, the Pale Ale stayed bitter and sweet throughout. Body is light medium and fizzy. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Opaque orange pour with tight white head and lace. Aroma of sour apples and light citrus hops. Orange zest, earthy tones, a light breadiness. A tad thin and watery.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Robust, malty aroma is quite hoppy, more at an IPA than a regular pale ale. Pours a somewhat hazy, slightly dark amber with a rather thick and persistent off-white head. Mouth-filling flavor has a malty core with a strong hoppy overtone that is scarcely bitter and a hearty, slightly sweet fruity note. Smooth texture has OK body and fizz, and leaves a satisfying hoppy finish. Drinks more like an IPA, and so what - itís great! Give it a spin!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz growler, kegged November 28, 2012. Served at around 45F.
Pours slightly hazy amber with a two finger white head that leaves impressive rings of clumpy lacing and holds a good cap.
Aroma is mandarin oranges, melons, fruity, citrus, a bit of banana, belgian yeast character, unique. Very good strength.
Flavor is more mandarin orange, citrus, belgian yeast, banana, melons, bready malt with a bit of caramel, mild alcohol, moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little sticky, somewhat creamy, good carbonation.
Very nice Pale Ale, very unique. Is this fermented with Belgian yeast or just a very fruity example of the style? Dunno, but itís good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from growler. Hazy orange pour with white head that diminishes rather slowly, spotty lacing. Smell is light sweet grains, light citrus, delicate fruity hops. Taste is more fruitiness (fruity esters /infection?), medium lingering bitterness, citrus, sweet light grains. Some of the fruitiness appears to be from some noticeable yeast. Not bad just just different and I am not sure intentional with noticeable esters.
