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.

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.

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.

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.

Appearance: 1” fluffy white head, cloudy golden color with significant carbonation. Large amount of lacing as well.
Aroma: Citrus dominates – tangerine and orange. Some biscuit malt as well and a bit of yeasty bread.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied and somewhat sticky, noticeable carbonation in the swallow with a dry finish.
Flavor: toasted bread, a bit of raisin, tangerine. Flavor is more balanced than the aroma.
Overall: I found this brew enjoyable and drinkable. A nice session ale.

The color of sweet tea, appropriate for a Southern beer. Fairly hoppy, but nice malty finish.
