Tap at The Shed BBQ. I was slightly hungover but couldnít pass up chance for Alabama tick. Pours orange with big white head. Nose of citrusy hops. Tastes of lemon, grass, bready, orange, earth, and some malt. Not too shabby

There isnít much aroma to speak of, but perhaps a bit of nail polish. Perhaps this batch is off. The beer is fairly cloudy, has limited head and thin lacing. This is a pretty typical American pale ale, but isnít outstanding by any means.

From a can, which is nice. Coppery orange, nice white head. Bready, toasty aromas, mixed with a good deal of citrus. Crisp and clean. Nice crackery malts supporting a citrusy hops. Simple and tasty.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big plus for the thick pour in a Pale Ale. Giant foamy white head with exceptional lacing. Orange and slightly unfiltered appearance. Mild citrus and malt aroma. Smooth, mild hop taste with naval orange aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full. Really nice job GP. Excellent job making a beer that could have been dull, but is far from boring.

Tap. Pours clear light amber, medium off-white head, great lacing. Aroma of very light pine, caramel. Flavor is the same, light flavor as well, minimal sweetness, light bitterness, piney. Light body. Uninteresting.

On tap at Halftime Sports Bar in Auburn. A bit more hoppy than I thought it would be, although it was a little thin in the palate for my taste, especially for an ale. Easy-drinking, but nothing special.
