3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, copper appearance with a large, creamy, off white head and very good lacing. Appealing aroma of resinous hops. Taste is balanced; citrus and piney hops are prominent but do not overwhelm the caramel malts. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel, with a dry, bitter, lingering finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very solid, flavorful American Pale Ale. Lots of hop aroma, deep gold color, tall white head. Recommend this as a good choice for a pale with some character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My friends Tom and Jen brought this one up from North Carolina. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was dry, floral and had a gritty herbal hop presence. The flavor was dryish with moderate floral and herbal hops and a light nutty undertone. The finish was medium length floral and herbal hops. Medium body. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Bottle. A great pale ale! I think some lower raters are comparing this to an IPA. As a pale ale, this is a fine brew. Burnt orange/bronze pour with a frothy white head and thick lacing. Sweet citrus hop scent, grapefruit with a spoonful of sugar, and a hint of pine in the finish. Light/medium bodied (a low point for me), sticky texture. If it were a little fuller in the mouthfeel, I’d have rated it higher. Hop taste right up front, citrus, and a tangy middle that reminded me of fruit loops! Bitter finish. Excellent!

On tap at West 94th Street Pub, Durham. Yeah, this is a pretty damn average APA and sadly short on the piney, hoppy, and citrus qualities advertised. This is hardly a craft beer destination, and it could just be that this keg is well past its prime. However, papery and malty in extremis.
