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.

Crisp, malty aroma has a note of sour apple. It pours a nice bubbly almost clear amber with a very thick and fluffy white head. The sample I got fizzed like crazy, so open with care! Flavor is quite satisfying, malty with a slightly sour fruity note and an earthy, hop-bitter undertone. Smooth texture has above-average body and a firm, persistent fizz. A truly satisfying and enjoyable ale.

Bottle thanks to badnloose. Pours a slightly dark amber color. Small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is hoppy, with notes of pine and citrus. Flavor is citrus, with some floral notes. I really liked this one as it’s a very solid APA.

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!

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.
