Mini Keg courtesy Degarth. Pours a clear copper with a large off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of floral and earthy hops with notes of biscuits, sweet malt, and caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.

Draft sample at Knoxville Brew Jam. Poured a clear amber color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral sour citrus aroma. Medium body with slick texture. Heavy bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout drinkable brew.

Clear amber, fresh grapefruit aroma, big bitter flavor profile, bigger than most ipa’s, unbalanced, needs sweetness

clear amber, thin fine white head, nice lace, sweet citrus malt aroma, nice big bitter citrus hop flavor, good carmel malt sweetness to back it up

swinging back towards the bitter side,

on tap-pours a white head and amber color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops-some bitter, medium malt. OK carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at the Sunspot in Knoxville, TN. Poured to an orange-red color with thick white head that lasted for most the glass, and left good lacing. Slight fruit aroma, apples mostly, with a hint of hoppy floral. Flavor was a little of the same, although both were muted. What I liked best about this beer was the biting mouthfeel and the strong, bitter finish.

I truly enjoy this beer. I can only find it in one local bar, but I order it every time that I go there. It has a refreshing taste and is not too hoppy. It has a beautiful color. I have only had it on draft, but plan on trying it in the bottle.

Mini-keg at a reception in Knoxville. Poured copper with a nice tan head. Nose is floral and citrus. Plavor is citrusy and malty, with a nice hop bite in the finish. Excellent mouthfeel. A good Pale Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber, an attractive hue. The aroma has fresh citrus and apricot hops. In the flavor they add a bit of pine and a touch of astringency from the hops. This is hoppier than the Warning IPA, but I think I prefer the Warning. Not bad, this one, though.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear orange color with white head that laced the glass. Citrusy hop nose. Tangy and bitter with a hoppy grapefruit flavor. Very good IPA.

draught. Pours a copper shade with a firm, white head atop. The aroma is typical PA: pine, citrus, a little caramel. Flavor is more the same. It definitely satisfied my craving for a good pale ale. I think it resembles an APA a little more than an IPA. The malts could’ve been slightly more rounded for a more savory experience and there were slight buttery off-flavors, but all in all, it was a refreshing, hoppy, sweet brew.
