4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2013 Pours a gold yellow with decent head. Aroma is barley and corn husky malt with a mild earthy herbal hops note. Taste follows the aroma perfect. Medium mouth feel. Nice pale ale! Epic malt backbone!

Oh my. Head brewer, Jeremy, poured me a pint right from the storage tanks. Big frothy head with good retention hanging out on a dark golden beer. Almost perfect carbonation. Aroma of grass, faint pine, and sweet citrus. Flavors of apricot, tangerine, caramel. Finishes with just enough bitterness to balance out the sweet flavors. Really well done. I think this will quickly become their most popular beer.

On tap at the brewery. Clear amber golden with a one finger light yellowish white head, creamy and fading to a thick film before long. Ridiculously fruity peach nose that was very unexpected with light orange rinds and a firm biscuit backbone. Flavor still has tons of fruit--i almost swear there’s juice in here. Despite this, not a ton of sweetness going on. As it warms, I do get a little herbal dry hopped characteristic in the flavor, but nose the nose. Dry finish, bitterness at a 3-4. Lowo carbonation with a light to medium body. It’s a good beer anyway, but I like it more for the fact that it’s so different with the hop usage. BTW, Jeremy the Brewer said Simcoe (the juicy peach apricot culprit), Crystal, Cascade, and Warrior hops were used.

22 oz bottle from Frazier Farms. Usually I am not a fan of XPAs but this was a great quaffable brew. Perfect with the BBQ on hit humid day. Well balanced nicely hopped dry brew. Very clear nice head. Nice dry crisp finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: floral hops, toasty malt to balance, some citrus, very nice balance. Slightly hazy golden pour, white head with average retention and thin lacing. Malt and hop flavors blend really well; bready, toasty malts with firm bitterness and a nice crisp hop flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Very nice brew.

Amber pour, mostly white head. Light hops and crackery malts in the nose. Flavor is smooth and light. Fruity hops and malts are light but blend well.

T - Starts off with a mix of pale and caramel malts with some grapefruit, orange, and citrus hops and some bitterness. Through the middle, some pine hops come through with a bit more bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts, citrus and light pine hops, a bit of bitterness, and some lemon zest.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and lightly sweet and bitter finish.

Tap at Blue Palms. Nose is kinda tangy malt and faint hops. Flavors were very unusual: floral notes plus definite apple juice. Light malt, well balanced. Not my fave from ER.
