3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Jack of the Wood in Asheville. Amber-bronze with a thin head. Aroma is floral with caramel and a little citrus fruit. The flavors are rather toasty; notes of nut, caramel, and citrus hops. Slightly dry with a touch of finishing bitterness. Nothing special but a solid drinking balanced Pale Ale

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brew pub. Pours clear amber with a small off white head leaving some lace. Aroma is malty, caramel, grass, a bit sweet and a bit piny. Flavor is nice and clean, a bit thin body makes it very drinkable. Malty, toasted, caramel, piny, grapefruits and good bitterness makes thus a perfect session beer together ith the modrate 4,65 ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally reviewed: 10/16/08. Stopped by the brewery itself for lunch and had this brew. Came out a light copper/orange color with about a half-inch head. Pretty good retention with some spotty lacing.
Smell the hops right away. This beer smells good. Some citrus scents in there as well.
First thing I notice about this beer is the nice crisp hop bitterness. A little more bitter than most APAs, but very good nonetheless. Some caramel malt taste tries to balance this one out, but the hop is king here.
This had a good amount of carbonation that gave it a nice crisp feeling. This was a good APA, but not my favorite of their offerings for sure.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out of a growler into a 1L glass mug.
Appearance is a slightly hazy medium copper with a very tiny head.
Nose has plenty of earthy hops along with some caramel and toffee notes from the malt.
Flavor is a bit watery from the start with a quick shot of hoppy bitterness. Some earthyness from the hops quickly follows along with some caramel and biscuit. A pleasant maltyness lingers through the finish.
Overall this isnít a bad beer but the body is lacking. I also feel it is a little more hoppy than it should be and the malt kind of gets buried.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Light citric hoppy aroma with some grassy notes. The flavor has floral and grassy hops, light citric fruity notes, pale clean malty notes, and not much sweetness. Pretty good.
