COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic American Pale Ale is is floral to the nose and flavorful to the mouth. 2 - row, 5 specialty malts, and just the slap right amount of Cascade hops makes our pale ale just a shade short of perfect. Grab some and tell us what you think. Surely to be one of your new favorites.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

benself (11) - gardendale, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2009
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.

Peterlemonjelo (42) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 28, 2009
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. Nice APA.

On tap at hotel bar. Pours hazy orangish copper with off-white head. Aromas of citrus hops and caramel malts. Flavors of some grapefruit citrus, caramel malts, and fair amount of hop bitterness. Nice lacing. Pretty solid APA and first Alabama tick.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2013
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.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 16, 2010
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! Original rate: 3.1

Honey, dandelion, and barley malt bouquet. Clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Dandelion flavor, sufficiently bitter, with a grassier end. Perhaps a touch too dry, but the malt and hop balance is good.

Sample at Music City. Yes I turned around and got right back in line so I could make it through all of these guys’ beers. Pour is clear dark yellow almost orange color. Grassy hop aroma with an herbal somewhat spice finish.
