UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Orange-amber pour with no real head nor lace of which to speak. The nose is grassy. This is at first reminiscent of an ESB with pale malt and biscuits. The finish is dry and hopped with biscuit notes still available. This APA cleanses the palate very well, even with heavier American food (burgers, clubs, cheeses, etc.). Its lengthy finish, dry-hopped, is quite indicative of style, and makes for a great example of an APA.

This pale ale seems like every other at first but let it ramble through your mouth and you’ll notice a caramel-smoky flavor that makes it a very unique but still veryu authentic pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2007 On draft at the Piedmont Ale House in Burlington. Clear deep gold under a medium white head with very good staying power. Pine and citrus on the nose, just like the description promises. Medium body and carbonation, mildly resinous palate, but pretty clean. Honey like sweetness countered by a grapefruit bitterness that leads to a long dry finish. Not bad at all.

Cask at the Durham World Beer Festival. Murky gold with a small off white head. Mild grapefruit and light pine nose. Fruity, light flavors, more grapefruit and pine. Not bad.

This is a well balanced, quaffable American pale ale. Golden bodied with a creamy, good lacing head, the aroma of this ale is sweet malt with sturdy grapefruit and pine hop scents. The malts are somewhat toasty in the flavor, still quite sweet, with the hop bitterness remaining strong and lasting long into the finish. Good stuff.

Draught at the Brewpub in Greensboro 3/25/06: Clear golden yellow-amber body with a small white head. The aroma has some light citrus and fresh bitter hops with hints of light malt. The taste has dry bitter hops, pale malts, and a bit of grassy bitterness. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated, feels very crisp on the palate. Finishes with some lightly bitter dried citrus hops.

From the tap, pours a clear orange-ish color with a small white head. Nothing in the nose, bland. Just a bitter grassy hops taste. Meh. Tastes like a homebrew kit pale ale.

Had a small taste of this when I was deciding what to fill my growler jug with in G-boro yesterday afternoon. The porter won, but just barely. This was a very pale, very fruity sweet pale. The palate was medium carbonated, medium bodied. The hops definitely left a little something to be desired. This is definitely a beer, I’d try again, but certainly not my favorite local pale ale.
