Bottle at the bar on Shem Creek. Better than the amber, but not much. Good thing the scene was really good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.0 A: Well hazed medium orange color. Didnít get much of a head to form.
2.75 S: Hops are primarily citrusy orange and piney. Secondarily earthy and grassy. Neutral malt backbone with caramel sweetness. Simple and unfortunately underwhelming.
2.75 T: Mild bitterness. Again orangy and piney hop flavors. Malts arenít quite clean as Iím picking up hints of vegetal flavor. Otherwise a touch biscuit with caramel flavor.
3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess, but otherwise okay.
2.5 D: Donít really care for this much. Itís boring at itís baseline and has a problem with vegetal flavor.

A golden ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, treacle notes, classic. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, light mineral notes, a bit light but nice. Bottle at Nacho Hippo, MYR.

Pours hazy copper with a thin, white head. Grassy aromas but not strong. Typical pale ale taste, and drinkable. Not a bad offering, but also nothing too memorable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Palmetto, May 2015. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
A rather caustic, raw grapefruit-resin bomb.

Hmm not a bad American pale ale but I didn't enjoy this as much as Palmetto's other offerings I've sampled. From a fresh bottle, pours a slightly hazy orange copper appearance, good frothy head. Malt and mango citrus hops on the nose. Taste is some malt but primarily subdued earthy yet fruity pacific hoppy notes- grapefruit stickiness in the finish. Hoppiness is pleasantly solid, pairs well with meat and potatoes. Could have a better body to it, the palate struck me as unpleasantly thin and slick. Flavor intensity could be stronger too, malty contrast is weak. Just a decent craft beer.
