5/13/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Very clear light orange/golden pour with a decent off-white head that eventually fades to a small ring, but sticks pretty damn well and laces plenty. Faint, light hop aroma, mostly dank, pine, and bitter citrus when it shows through. Light pale malt flavor, biscuity, and similar hop aspects as the aroma led on but with a touch more bitterness. Not bad.

Several bottles recently at The Pig in Chapel Hill. Pours a clean orange amber with a small off white lace. Nose is grassy, light cat pee, very green, light citrus. Flavor is similar--not enough body or hop flavor, grassy green bitterness comes though, fairly dry and crisp but too light and bitter for my tastes. Like the idea and hope they will continue to make more sessionable american pale ales.
