3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of my Piggly Wiggly mixed six from North Charleston. Deep bronze pour with a fluffy head. Nose was papery as fuck, so I reckon this one had been in the pig’s bowels a while. Notes of lemon and toffee in the nose too, but the taste is - whether by design or age at this point - mostly washed out and grassy.

I don’t usually trust APAs. There are too many weak-flavored wheat beers. This was a good risk. I could definitely take more hops, but this contains a good amount of resiny hops flavor. Good balance of sweetness. Full mouthfeel. Recommended for fans of IPAs.

Draft pour. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head. Aroma was weak hops, some light malt sweetness, some watery fruit character. Flavor was light caramel malts, not a whole lot of hop character. Not very good, keg may have been off. Bummer.

On tap at the Federal Bar, pours an opaque orange with a small white head. Aroma of mild floral hops, a bit of fruitiness, and some caramel biscuity malt. Flavour of floral hops, some herbal hops, and biscuity malts. Full flavoured, especially for a pale ale. Great stuff.
