I had passed this up several times and decided to try it. I was surprisied. Orange color, great fruity hop aroma, nice malt and biscuit flavor. A great APA and brewed up the road at Thomas Creek!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured an amber with a nice two fingered head. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Flavor is hoppy with a slight bitterness. Nothing extraordinary here, but a well brewed beer. An average pale ale, nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a dark copper/amber (almost opaque) with a small off-white head. Aroma: tea, sweet malts (caramel maybe), fruit, pine & citrus hops. Taste carried out everything in the aroma; malt more of big backbone now. Medium mouthfeel (almost sticky). Nice bitter finish. Overall a very good beer... but not a Pale Ale (IMO); closer to a mild DIPA. This tastes very much like a Thomas Creek IPA.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On Draft at the fridge, Lancaster. Much higher ABV and darker than most pale ales, but neither unusual attribute does much to improve things, as the hop presence is diminished by the malt backbone - a decent pale ale, but much better ones out there.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours brownish amber with a light tan head that lingered a little. A subtle, brief aroma of malts and maple syrup with pine and citrus. Medium bodied, aggressively carbonated and has full, smooth mouthfeel. Flavor starts with sweet malt, maple syrup and biscuits and is well balanced w/ battering hops. Overall, a good brew though a bit sweet for the style.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Flavor was disappointing. Standard hoppy pale ale taste, citrus,hops. However, the flavor was not strong and the beer ended up being bland.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice copper hue, a nice white head which dissapates quickly. Attack is nice a malty, which fades to a nice hoppy flavor. Finishes with a nice, almost bitter flavor with some spice. Kind of like a spicy, more hopppy Fat Tire without as much biscuit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is honey with some bitter notes. Appearance is a lite caramel with decent lacing. Taste is malty caramel backbone but with a strong bitterness. Palate is crisp and clean! Another nice (although not incredibly exciting) beer from this promising new brewery.

Darker than i imagined for a pale ale. Tasty, but i will not die if I can not find it again.
