Bottle. The pour was a hazy copper amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white rocky head that was mostly diminishing but did have excellent spotty and clingy lacing. The aroma was of a straw malt, a strong herbal hop and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (over ripe grapefruit). The taste was bitter and acetic with a mild caramel note in the beginning with the finish being rather bitter, hoppy and pungent with the taste of over ripe fruit. The flavor lasted a decent while after the swallow allowing one to totally get the full effect of the hoppy citrus ending. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice lively carbonation. Overall an average Pale Ale with a twist, it is a brew that is just a tad bit on the harsh side of hoppy...

Cybercat (3223) - Georgia, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Firm aroma is malty and fruity, mainly apple, with a subtle yeasty undertone. It pours a nice clear coppery amber with a fairly thick, fluffy and rather persistent pale golden tan head. Malty flavor has a fruity undertone and a good hint of wood that is just slightly bitter. Smooth texture has about average body and average fizziness. Overall, not spectacular but definitely satisfying.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2011
bottle at the local. Pretty ho-hum pale ale. Light hops, a little overly boozy for the abv. Flavor shows more hop presence but lacks balance. A little messy overall.

bottle. clear orange with a large, foamy white head. herbal tea, floral hops, and a bit of toasted malt in aroma. a mellow APA with the above mentioned ingredients in the flavor. solid but standard. i suppose itís a good choice for a flagship brew.

Braudog (5584) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Pretty standard APA. Unfortunately this has a dirty wash rag aftertaste that put me off. After the Death by Hops this really pales ... But even as I try to enjoy it, it loses credibility. (#4280, 10/4/2011)

Picked up a bottle on a recent NC visit. Not too bad. Light. Not heavily carbonated. Decent hops. Bottle says "floral" but Iím not getting it (but I did burn my tongue on coffee earlier...)

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2011
22oz bomber thanks to Emacgee... pours a really dark bright and clear copper/amber, a watery light tope head... malt, flowers a bit of grass, a touch to malty and the hops arenít assertive, but ok... the taste has more hops than I would have ever imagined, very bitter at first, always show too much alcohol, I really want to like this but this is just so alcoholic without any malt balance... disappointing

Pours from the bottle with a medium amber shade of pale and a modest, creamy off-white head. The aroma features a nice, subtle yet present hop profile, with a combination of lemon, earth, and pine. The flavor has a bit more of an herbal/earthy Noble hop kind of bitterness, but there is also a light malty sweetness to provide some semblance of balance. Although somewhat generously hopped, the texture is only somewhat resinous, with the overall mouthfeel being quite crisp and clean, making this one go down easy.

22 ounce from Weinhaus in Asheville. Strong malt and pine aroma and taste. Crisp. Decent Pale Ale.

A decent pale ale, nothing too exciting about this one. I had a bottle that was a bit old and it showed. On tap this beer tasted significantly better, but was mellow, simple and somewhat unimpressive.
