Pint on tap. Clear amber with a lasting ring of foam. Nose is orange caramel and a bit of resin. Taste is the same. Light medium body is balanced and has medium carbonation.

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. pours a medium orange with a nice tight white head. Faint floral like aroma with a touch of spruce. Flavor has some nice subtle bitter citrusy undertones, a hint of mint and some nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thickish and clean. Does in a pinch

Nothing exciting but pretty drinkable. Simcoe hops give a nice variety of flavors- pine, citrus, earthy, melon with decent malt backbone for balance. Could have a bit more hop presence for me, but as mellow, crisp, clean pale ales go....not bad.

Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear amber color with a tan head. The aroma was earthy, herbal hops and some caramel malts. The taste was of citrus, earthy, herbal hops and caramel malts. Decent.

Draft. Pretty good thing here. Nice beer here. Pretty solid beer here. Pat Mcrory sucks.

b3shine (5192) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Draft to taster at Hi-Wire. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with foamy white head. Smells solid; hoppy and mildly sweet with some soft grain notes. Tastes like it smells with a solid medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

zizzybalubba (1387) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville, NC. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Very nice aroma of citrus and piney hops. The initial taste is more bitter than most pale ales with a generous amount of grapefruit, lemon, and grassy hops but is quickly met on the back end with enough malt to help balance the overall experience. Well done.

On draft. Faint lemony aroma. Flavor is summer in a glass: Lemon zest and citrus hops. Crisp finish. Summer heaven!

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Clear gold body with a tall, sticky white head. Light citrus hop aroma. The flavor is clean and well balanced with bitterness in a long lasting finish.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Cybercat (3223) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Pours a nice clear golden with a decent ivory head. Malty aroma has a decided hoppy component. Malty flavor has a strong note of hay and woody hops. Texture is fairly firm and fairly fizzy. A pale ale ready for prime time.
