3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a slightly hazy golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that had great retention and lasting throughout producing thick sheets of lacing.
The aroma was to say the least nice and hoppy of a pine hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with nice strong notes of citrus and caramel.
The taste was bold and bitter with a hint of caramel at first then became extremely hoppy with a real nice dose of citrus at the end. The flavor lasted a really long time allowing for full enjoyment of this beyond hoppy brew.
Mouthfeel was just a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with a nice prickly carbonation.
Overall this Pale Ale is by far one of the better ones out there. If I did not know any better, I would have taken it for an IPA.

One of their better beers. This is light colored and a lighter beer. Nothing amazing in general but a decent taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An okay IPA. Citrus dominates in body and aroma. Hints of pine are apparent, particularly in the nose. Stale finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rating. Not a fan. Malt and grain base. Little hop flavor. Too sweet. Not light as I'd like in a pale ale.

12oz bottle six pack from Food Lion. $8.99 + tax. Golden hue, hazy clarity with mostly lasting fizzy white head. Lively bubbles and good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit hop, pine and lemon. Strong grapefruit hop up front with more of a tangerine hop and sticky pine finish. Lively carbonation on the palate. I was pleasantly surprised at how good this was. I am glad I tried this one.

bottled - purchased in Roanoke VA - very good hop and citrus aroma and flavor. Has a slight piney aftertaste like the description states. Just needs a bit of sweetness to balance it out.

From site: Medium bodied deep golden ale with distinctive bitter character and hoppy, piney-citrus finish...a true American style.
Nice creamy feel. Not too much in ur face, easy hop aftertaste.
