12oz bottle-pours a thick light tan head that laces with copper color. Aroma is lively hops, sweet, malt. Taste initially starts out thin, then mild caramel malt followed by nice biting medium hops. Medium/light body. Improved with the second one.

Poured a lightly hazed amber color with a thin off-white head. Light citrus hop aroma with big malt and an earthy finish. The flavor was citrusy and mildly acidic from the hops. Caramel malt flavors. Decent hop finish.

Light yellow orange body with a white head. Cascade like citrus lemon and wet rubber nose. I don’t care for the aroma. Light orange and lime sweet flavor. Clean thin finish.

12 oz bottle at Jim & Nick’s Bar-B-Q in Charleston, SC. Huge lasting fine-bubbled tan head atop a nice rustic amber body....very spicy, hoppy aroma with orange-peel, lemon juice and lots of dried pine needles for a vital aromatic experience....smooth, clean, fairly sweet front with touches of molasses and lightly toasted malts....rather dry and bitter finish, somewhat watery and a bit too thin, nevertheless a reasonably solid, respectable pale ale.

Pours a clean golen orange with a good head and nice lacing. A nice not to grassy hops and malt aroma. Beer had a smooth creamy palate with good smooth carbonation not fizzy at all. A good taste of malt and hops with a lingering bitter that I like much. A really good beer for the style.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Low intensity grassy hop aroma. Orange body holds a two finger thick, mostly lasting, white head. Citrus tinged hoppy fore. The malt also is citrus tinged, but also has lots of sweeter white fruit notes like apple. Finish is mildly bitter and the aftertaste is lush and fruit laden.

12 oz bottle. Clear golden-orange color with thin white head. Prominent grassy hop aroma with a hint of hay. Like putting your nose in a bag of hop leaves. Tangy up front and slightly sweet with a healthy smack of those grassy hops again. No hop bitterness.
