3/19/14. Growler from Whole Foods. Pours frothy with a nice two finger head that gives way to thick lacing. Strong hop nose for a pale. Good flavor and balance for a lighter (almost session) pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to pint. Looks solid; a slightly cloudy deeper orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells solid; a fairly bitter hop profile with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

11/27/13. On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown Asheville. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Surprisingly bland aroma, muted citrus and earthy hops, plenty of maltiness. Same on the flavor - I was hoping for more hop out of these guys. Caramel, bread, biscuit, light citrus and earthy hops. Disappointed.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is a little hoppy with some light floral notes. Taste is a tad bitter, but clean and crisp. Not bad at all.

Emeister84 (753) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Aromas of biscuit and earthy hops. Gold with a decently lasting, white head. Dry, biscuity, and with a snappy hop bitterness. Light body, refreshing carbonation, and a clean finish.

From bottle. Pours golden in color with nice head. Aroma was floral and sweet. Taste followed with roasted malt, caramel and hops. Slight bitterness. Very good.
