Bottle. Cloudy light copper, half-inch snowy head. Amazing juicy, fruity, resiny, and barely dank hop aroma, against a backdrop of breadcrust and honey. Dry and flavorless except for disappointingly metallic and plastic tastes. I would have guessed it is organic from the overall dirty, pithy character. The beer suffers from harsh, rough bitterness befitting a maltier backbone. Stats would indicate an FG of ~1.014 (3.5P), yet the mouthfeel is thin, chalky and gritty. Hairspray and yellow grapefruit aftertaste. It smells great, but everything else really, really sucks. How the hell did they fuck up plain ol’ pale ale??

Very smooth pale ale. Found this to be incredibly drinkable on a warm summer eventing.

Light body with a neutral mouthfeel. Fairly bitter, but with a good, smooth, short lasting aftertaste.

From bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with decent tan head. Aroma was sweet with a floral hops. Taste was caramel and an unbalanced sweetness. Has bittering but was way too sweet.

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.

Sample at brewfest. Pours a light orange. Citrus/grapefruit on the tongue, really a nice beer.

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.
