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.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Hazy pale golden color. Thick rocky white head. Nice lace. Smells perfect. Nice deep pale malts. Flavor has lots of citrus hops. Gigantic malt body. Perfectly balanced. Smooth and creamy. Delicious.

Nice golden hue, very pretty lacing down the side of the glass. Head sticks around for a while. Very balanced malt and hop characteristics, very cascade. Not a dry pale ale, but not at all sweet; just enough to quench your thirst.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice beer served on tap at J. Clyde.
Pours a dark yellow with a touch of amber. Nice head with plenty of lacing.
Smell is hop dominant....citrus and floral.
Taste is hoppy of center with citrus esters. Not overly dry but nothing sweet about the finish.
Mouthfeel is appropriate for style.
Very drinkable APA. Hoppier than some but and easily sessionable beer.

On tap at Bonnaroo, Brooers Tent. Really a perfect summer festival beer. Light and easy to drink in the hot sun yet still flavorful.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Draft sample. Orange/copper in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma: mild citrus hops & malt. Taste: mild citrus hops, malt, maybe some pine... all a little watered down. Light body, not much depth. Overall: average... but, to be fair, I am not really a fan of this style of beer.
Re-rate: I had a new batch of this last night - on tap, poured in a mason jar. Much, much better this time: Poured a dense, cloudy orange/ gold with a medium off-white head. Aroma: citrus, hops, malt. Taste carried out the aroma - still a little watery but for a Pale Ale not so much. This batch had some depth to it. Finally found a Pale Ale I can drink!
