Imaena (1789) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Growler from Bob. This is a spicy little PA with some decent grassyness. Just not the whole package for me though.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Deep copper brown, with a ring of head. Crisp hop lager nose, with a body that is similar. Barrel wood quality and fruitiness permeate throughout the olfactory senses and the palate.

nearbeer (3586) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Pint on tap. Hazy orange-golden with a lasting film of cream. Mild nose of toffee and crackers. Flavors of lemon zest, caramel, touches of dry grass and resin, and maybe some graham cracker. Light-medium body is balanced but a little too fizzy. This brew is as described: pretty much a muddle that needs to be either more boldly English or American, as the current combo is pretty forgettable.

Criz (66) - - JAN 19, 2014
On Draft poured a deep orange color. Almost a non-existent white head. Aroma of wet soil. Thin palate of copper and earth notes. OK at best but didn’t expect much more from this brewery.

decaturstevo (4869) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Hazy tan pour with frothy off white head. Aroma is light caramel malt and a touch of citrus. Flavor is sweet malt, some earthy tones, and a decent bitter finish. Medium body with good carbonation good beer

mikedevilsfan (131) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Decent lacing, hazy gold color with yeasty pale taste with some hops on the back end. Fairly simple but well done.

jbrana (378) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - APR 30, 2013
Hop forward with nice pine and citrus with a hint of spearmint on the finish. Has a nice crisp and mellow malt body with a biscuity aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edgallow (1859) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2013
16 oz draft pours amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus and a little pine. Taste is the malts and just a hint of bitterness.

2.4
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
mojoman (154) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Tap at ML Rose West Nashville. Aroma hard to tell as it may be influenced by dishwasher. Cloudy (unfiltered) and copper color. No lace. Not floral so I don't get the west coast vibe. Pretty ordinary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Nutty grassy smell. Reminds me of a cross between an english and belgian pale, not west coast. A little sweet on the finish. Murky unfiltered orange, love how it looks. Probably the best part. Average stuff.
