A deep honey brown appearance with OK head. There is some sediment in this one.. looks like itís about 8 months old judging from the bottle markings =/. A very nice floral malty hoppy smell. Taste is a bit mellow and watery, but not bad. Fruity notes, almost like banana.

The beer pours great with a nice midly hazy straw color, a very frothy white head, and some decent lacing on the glass. The smell is average with some citrus hoppy notes (almost mild citra-hop) but not much else. The taste is average with mildly citrus flavors and some bready, yeasty flavor but mild tastes and negatively bitter. The mouthfeel is somewhat dry and disappointing and the beer was overly carbonated. Overall, this is a mild pale that doesnt offer much in flavor or anything different.

On tap at UJís. Pours nice copper with white head. Almost no flavor at first. Eventually, thereís some weak citrus, pine, floral. Lightly bitter and sweet. Crisp body.

Pours an orange gold color with a bubbly white head that sticks around for bit. The smell is a little hops, nothing aggressive just a touch of citrus. Taste is a bit of citrus and bit bitter but nothing too special or very memorable. Would not have this beer again

Hmm, pretty uninteresting for an American Pale. Average pour with an ok aroma, the taste is just slightly too plain for the style. Itís got some nice character up front but it just kind of washes away and finishes somewhat watery. This makes the beer light and quite drinkable but by no means remarkable!

Primal pale ale has a golden color with a bit of a haze and cloudy appearance. Very little head and barely any aroma. The beer does have a good taste with some earthy hop notes. Not too bitter also. A positive to this brew , it is light and does have a balanced taste. Very easy to drink. Also, not too hoppy. Is recommend you give it a try.

Bottle. Aroma is really nice grass and malt--can smell it from far away. Flavor on this oneís all about grass and straw with a medium dry bitter finish. A good Maryland beer.

Sampled at the brewery. Light amber color with a white head. Pine and citrus aromas with well rounded hoppy flavors. Smooth finish and a nice balance

On tap at the Philly Airport Marriott. Hazy gold pour, looks kind of like a "mid-craft" brew like Samís summer or something like that. Modest floral notes in the nose along with some grain and tea. Mouthfeel is medium, not quite substantial enough. Clean and grassy for the most part, but lacking personality.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Wonderful IPA with slightly sweet taste and crisp finish. There is a resounding floral presence and the hoppy bitters are extrordinarily mild and simply unoffensive. It drinks easily and is light on the intake with ample carbonation. I had this in a bottle in quaint Harbortown bar/hotel in St. Michaelís, MD with a few colleagues. We all had round after round of this brew after maxing some crabs. This is a good party beer for the norm and even for thise who prefer craft brews with a nice approach!
