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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Food Lion. Pours clear golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates to a white film and leaves a bit of lacing. The aroma has a grassiness, a bit pils-esque. The taste has a light bitterness, a grassy hoppiness, dry finish. No bitterness and little to seperate from an average to slightly below average pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Bubbly gold color, with a medium, frothy, beige head. Lots of lacing. Strong orange juice aroma, and some caramel, sourdough, and straw. Sweet and malty flavor, with a nice, smooth bitterness. Light to medium body, smooth, and a little grainy. This is a very nice, smooth, easy-drinking pale ale. Great hop aroma, and an amazing, well-balanced flavor.

Poured from 12 oz bottle a clear orange/amber forming a soapy white head. Aroma was of floral hops and some slight citrus notes. The taste brings forward some more of the malt. Flavour overall is malty, bitter, citric, piny and a bit fruity.
