Deep, ruddy oak color, light lacy head. Tangy, slightly candied, light tannic aroma. Mellow, quality malting. Woody, prominent hopping. Lightly sweet and Fuggles-y. Long, mild bitter finish. Medium body. A very nice UK/Am PA. On tap, Hunter Gatherer.

Copper redish beer that is too bitter (seems to be their thing) good thick aroma...tastes more like an IPA than a pale ale

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From brewery tap. Pours a hazy orange with no head. Aroma was citrus hops. Taste was flat and mild. Not carbed enough and needs more bitters.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the World Famous Hunter Gatherer Columbia, South Carolina. Unfiltered orange-brown body, thin beige-tan head. Straightforward APA, not so impressive, watery, some light chewy malt tones and some soapy, bitter orange hops. Hop forward enough to make it tolerable, either way not so inspired or cohesive of an effort. Straightforward, bland, leans toward the West. A 3 seems awfully generous.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Brewpub in SC. 100+ degrees outside and I was an Oregonian in trouble. A very mild and weak Pale Ale. Not a bad beer, just needs more of everything. Was suprised that their India Pale Ale was a seasonal and not offered.

Draft at brewery. Cloudy golden color. Aroma slight with a bit of citrus and hops. Mouth feel was about average or a little weak. Very little head that quickly dissipated. Overall I thought it disappointing. Bitter with no other flavors.

Draft at pub. Hazy copper with a thin white head. Scent is caramel and a hint of hops. Taste is more on the malt side....earthy bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Ok hopping, very light malt, light flavor all around, really. Ok, but not really interesting, could use more hops and malt. Easy drinking, though, and decent.

deep orange amber colour with a touch of white foam. Being a classic American Pale Ale, can you guess what the nose was? Yes, citrusy, grapefruity hoppiness - which is exactly what I want and expect from an American Pale. Drinking the beer was an exercise of sweet caramel malts providing a nice counterbalance to the zingy, orangey bite of the hops. Clean and very easy to drink.

Orange-amber--dark for a Pale Ale. Almost no nose but a little musty. Nicely balanced palate--slightly creamy malt with balanced hops. Really good for the style.
