Found at Total Wine in Charleston. Super Bowl brew. Sadly was a bit stale- check the dates Total Wine!- but can see the potential. Pretty light pour for a "pale"- light orange, white head. Hazy. Tons of citrus- dominant flavor. Notes of pine, floral and earth. Super crisp and dry in the finish. Not as much maltiness as I would expect from a pale. More hoppy/ bitter-slightly astrigent, even- and less sweet. Decent stuff. Well balanced. Would love to try on tap and super fresh.

Light haze to a golden pour. Aroma is sweet malt and citrus. Taste is citrus and pepper. Not bad, but not something I would search for.

[Tap] Pours a golden color with a slight haze to it. Soapy head with nice lacing. Nose of spicy hops, lemongrass and pine needles. A crisp hoppiness is featured in the flavor. Citrus, spruce, floral hops, grass and peppercorns also come through. Nice balance. Dry finish is refreshing. Not cheap though!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Capital Ale House This APA poured a clear amber with a white head and very light lacing. The aroma was of pine and some lemon. This is mild pale ale but well balanced. It is an easy drinking pale ale for anytime. The light body ale had average carbonation. The finish was smooth with mild pine bitterness in the last swallow.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp citrus hop aroma with a soft creamy note. Straw colored body with an amber tinge. A quarter inch pillow head that lingers a long time. Citrus hop bitter taste. Has a creamy quality that balances the bitter hop presence.

On tap at Ellynís in Glen Ellyn, IL., and dispensed to a tulip showing a clear & shimmering, golden hue, and fluffy, white foam that lowered itís head just a bit to a frothy layer, with clingy, curtainy rings of lacing. The nose was perfumey & expressive esters as grapefruit, light tropical scent, pineapple, and lemon. The taste was fresh, juicy & citrusy, with just the right mellowing touch of malt & sweetness. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the hop bitterness was dry & lingering, with citrus rind, and a bit of earthiness. Finished clean & crisp. Would gladly choose over many IPAs for bold hop character with a quaffable nature.
