3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at hoppy monk
pours bright orange with a small sudsy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is citric lots of grapefruit and some minty qualities. Flavors show the minty notes actually. Sort of herbal and medicinal aspirin like flavors. Hmm not all that great. Has some decent minty bitterness. Decent yet over hyped for this style

Pours gold into a tulip. White head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Sourdough aromas. Dry with sour, stale caramel and rancid hop finish. What?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at VBGB’s in Charlotte, NC. Got the plastic cup blues on this one so I can’t really judge the appearance accurately. Definitely a solid pale ale from what I’ve gotten so far. Really drinkable, not overly hoppy, and slight malty sweetness to keep it interesting. Solid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a combination of sweet citrus and light grapefruit with a light grain backbone. Flavor has more grapefruit up front with growing sweet citrus and just a bit of bread backing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Parry's. Pours a light orange color and a thin, white head that doesn't stuck around. Smells of hops and citrus. Taste is a bit in the light side in the hops department. A good, but not great ale.

650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium white head that has good retention. The aroma features grapefruit, melons and some toffee. The taste is bitter hops forward with the exact same stuff as the nose. The palate is full and silky with lively carbonation. Finishes long and bitter. Overall: Good APA.

Draft at Falling Rock. Pours a clear, dark orange color with a thin white head. Light grapfruit aroma with a thin, hoppy note in the nose. Smooth taste with dry hops and citrus in the background. A pale ale that seems like an IPA. Good balance. Very nice brew.
