12 oz. bottle. Poured a light copper tone with soapy lacing. Sweet malts, caramel, earthy notes up front then light citrus and pine notes. Lively carb. Nothing flashy, just a solid APA.

Keg at the brewery, Asheville, 17/02/15. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malt, melon, tangerine, straw. Taste comprises orange, melon, straw, toasted bread. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so APA, lacks hop presence.

A run of the mill American pale delivering appropriate piny and grapefruit notes. Medium to light bodied. Light crackery malt background. Ends with a bitter earthy whack that needs some grub to keep it from taking control. Nice 2 finger sticky head though.

HourGlass13 (229) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is light pine, biscuit, light citrus. Not exactly a hop bomb, but plenty hoppy for me. Flavor is a balance, a little on the biscuity malt side but not too sweet.

ben4321 (4539) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, 1/2/15

Aroma: The nose is light and hoppy, herbal notes, a little citrus, and some earth
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a frothy off-white head and spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, with a clean light bitterness and a light sweetness
Palate: Light-medium bodied, easy drinking, a hint thin, soft carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: Well the stupid hotel fridge half froze this beer, so I only had about 8 ounces. Thanks hotel fridge. Really, thanks. Anyway, this is a pretty decent, clean APA. It isn’t super sweet or super hoppy. Very balanced. A little thin, but otherwise pretty decent.

10:28/14. Bottle. Pours hazy light copper. Frothy but thin head that dissipates fast. Light pine nose. Sharp carbonation and a nice hop edge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
