Had this in a local bar in Mt Pleasant. Great local beer, would drink again, when in Rome...

I enjoyed a six pack of this while on Hilton Head. This was a very nice and enjoyable pale ale. Perhaps a bit thinner than I prefer but I’d definitely drink it again. Nice deep golden color with reddish hints. Good, long-lasting head and nice hoppy flavors that did not disappoint. I’d recommend this out of all of the beers in the Piggly Wiggly cooler, I think I bought the best available on Hilton Head.

This just wasn’t that good. Nothing special. Mediocre at best. A pale ale without much good to say.

Coppery brown/golden color. Smells good and has a smooth taste. I like it. The aftertaste lingers and it tastes better than the first taste.

This dark gold brew sports a bold citrusy aroma and flavor. It's got plenty of bitterness but there's enough malt for support.

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.

Color is reminiscent of a good ipa. Head diminishes quickly hops almost too pronounced for a pale ale. Would have given it a better rating as an ipa. It’s all in the name.... Sitting here in chas though so when in Rome...just a good beer- not great, not bad

on tap in the low country. A golden amber pour with moderate head and good lacing. Mild citrus hop aroma with a surprising amount of brassy bitter flavor. Very respectable APA - I’d equate it to flying dog classic PA. Pleasantly surprised.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2009 Bottled. Poured a slightly frosted orange color with a small white/ slightly off white head. Has very subtle but pleasant flavor. A good crisp pale.
