2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. a little too toasty grain and sweet corn. Not digging the malt bill here. Frothy white head. A bit creamy. A little bitter on the finish but still dominated by the toasty grain.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Biltmore Village taproom. The beer pours a hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, herbal hops and malt. Light body with flavors of mild piney hops, fruit and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Creekside Tavern, this pours amber-brown into the glass with a fully diminished head that leaves no lace of which to speak. The nose produces tea, caramel and tannins. Flavors are sweet upfront, of caramel and toffee, but quickly assert a hop peppering presence to close the pull. This is nicely balanced, offering malty notes countered by a bitter back. The mouthfeel is smooth with a medium body, and goes down well any time of the year.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the brewery, 1/1/15
Aroma: This one has a light hop aroma, it is fairly subtle, but decent and clean
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color, with a small head and spotty white lace
Flavor: It has a light sweetness, clean hop flavors, and a fairly bitter finish
Palate: It is fairly light bodied and easy drinking, with a soft carbonation on the mouth
I thought this was a solid, enjoyable APA. The nose is a little dull, but still solid, the hops come out more in the flavor.

Really good low gravity pale ale with a good citrus hop taste no hop aroma. A bit grain in aroma but no hop. Golden color thin head. Of better aroma be phenomenal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Catawba brewing. Not bad- overall just a bit meh. Not really fair to have this after Nose IPA. Pours light slightly hazy gold/ orange- decent white head. Taste is pretty mellow- lots of malt, caramel and pretty sweet upfront. Hops follow with usual citrus and pine notes-nothing too overpowering. Decent balance. Bit of dryness/bitterness to finish. Pretty drinkable, just a bit boring.
