Poured as a 4 oz taster in Greensboro - hoppy, refreshing, bitter but balanced with caramel notes at end.

Sampled on tap at Natty Greene’s in Raleigh. Pours a copper color with white head. Citrus, orange, grassy, hoppy aromas. Grassy, citrus, bitter flavors. A really nice balanced pale ale.

2/24/14. Draft at Carolina Theatre. Solid pale ale. Light nose and thin lacing. Strong hop mouthfeel. Darker hop notes than W Coast style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DialSquare (2316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2014
12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory. Gold pour with a huge white head that eventually subsides leaving sparse stick. Aroma of floral, citrus and bread. Tastes are along the same lines with a little peppery spice in the mix. Lightly bitter. Not bad, but not particularly noteworthy either. 6.6

unclemattie (4036) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
12oz bottle, green label (S). Pale color, lots of floaties. Aroma of pale cereal grains, light hops nose. Smells bready. Well balanced. Tastes of pale malts, nice citrus hops. My favorite out of the Natty Greene beers I picked up at Trader Joes. (3925)

hershiser2 (1175) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours slightly hazy amber with a small off white head. Smells of citrus hops and earth. Taste is an immediate funk of wet Lipton tea bags... some sour notes and bitter peel.

scotchzombie (289) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Drunk from the bottle so no visuals. Seems yellow gold from the bit I spilled. The Aroma is floral and mild citrus. This batch seems way too carbonated. Taste is quite floral with some orange citrus hop flavor and mild bitterness resultant. Bitter finish and floral notes stay with you. If the next one is less belch-inducing, this is a good-tasting, very drinkable pale ale that grows on you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beechner224 (420) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Poured from the bottle. Not much to speak of in terms of aroma. Just hints of both malt and hops. Nothing significant. Taste is mostly pale malt with minor op bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and drinks pretty smooth. ok for a basic pale ale.

Yellow gold color with a short lived foamy white head. Nose of wet grains and oranges. Some sugar cookie topped with orange zest flavors. Easy drinking pale ale.
