Pours dark golden with a nice white head. Lots of carbonation. Earthy aroma. NIcely hoped and decent malt. A well made pale ale, but nothing too spectacular.

Dark gold color. Clear. Light head but good lace. Mostly malty aroma; lots of caramel malt flavor. The flavor has a modest hop spice that lasts through the swallow. Neutral body and carbonation.

Had it on my trip to columbia. Rather low priced for a micro brew but this one was not an outstanding example of the APA, good but not grat

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a copper-orange with a fluffy white head if your agressive with it. I like to be agressice in the pour sometimes to release the aroma. Smell of citrius and a little piney spice. Taste is very nice with some caramel, spice, and pine. Nice little bite to finish on the way down. I like this beer but then again I like hops.

On tap at 82 Queen in Charleston, SC, on 10/22/08. Amber in color. Light hoppy aroma. Taste of earthy grassy hops with some malt. Had notes of mineral water as well.

Bottle. Pours an orange-amber color with a frothyheap. Aroma of hops, pine and grapefruit. The flavor is slightly more aggressive, but not much. Citricly hoppy but tight, with a nice melodic balance. Nice tarty edge defines this beer.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2004 Thanks to the generosity of Ross I’m able to sample beer from a state I spent allot of time in when I was too young to consume it. Very Nice APA!!! Hoppy, bitter, faint hint of sweet tea behind the potent hops. Smooth and very drinkable. Great beer, First beer of Ross’ shipment I think I chose a good one to start of with. If you haven’t had this beer, maybe you should.

A preety nice representation of a pale ale from Palmetto. Has the standard hoppiness with a nice finish as well.

Bottled. Poured a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head. This one has very little flavor - I wish it had more hop flavor and some more malts so that it could remotely compete with Sierra Nevada. A good crisp pale.
