Good beer. Golden hue, decent head on pour out of bottle. Balanced dry hopping. Not explosive hops--a rarity with American pale ales these days.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of floral and citrus hops. Flavor is solid malt backbone with some hops shining through in the finish. Not a super hoppy brew, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Would be a great hoppier session beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at Growler’s Craft Beer & Ales in Hilton Head, South Carolina. The pour is a lightly hazed golden orange, with a smallish white head. The aroma is lightly caramel malt, and a faint whisper of citrus hops. As the beer warmed, the caramel found a bit of fruit sweet. The taste was pretty flabby, the caramel, light toast malt followed by a grass mild citrus. The palate is medium to light bodied, soft carbonation, and a sweet dry finish. Tasted a bit more like an English Pale Ale.
