3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep golden color full tan head. Nice floral and pine aroma from the cascade hops. Also a touch of citrus. Flavor has a mild caramel sweetness. Medium-light body, good malty feel to go along with the medium bitter finish. Overall a surprising solid ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle via DecaturoStevo(thanks!). Pours a hazy amber orange with a VERY SMALL white head. Nose is floral and has notes of grapefruit, grass, pine. Tastes like it smells and is quite hoppy gor a Pale Ale. Malts are there for a second but are pretty subdued. Crisp clean grapefruit finish with a touch of lemon in the aftertaste. Very nice hoppy refreshing beer.

A very decent APA. Drank from a bottle at the NAC in Columbia. Hoppy, orange in color, and crisp. Very nice for out on the balcony with some new friends.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This dark gold brew sports a bold citrusy aroma and flavor. It's got plenty of bitterness but there's enough malt for support.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2004 Off-white head. Loose lace. Sweet tea best describes the color. The aroma is floral and of hops. The taste follows all the way. The malts are hidden, slightly due to a lemon/cirtus linger. A very good beer and slightly under-rated.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 12 oz bottle - maybe this pale ale tasted so good because it was enjoyed while on vacation in the beautiful city of Charleston - aroma of citrus, malt, hops and pine. Taste was nice and hoppy (almost an IPA in my opinion) along with apricots, peach, pine and caramel sweetness. Lots of lacing. Very refreshing brew on a hot, humid day in S.C.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrusy aroma with a great bitter, hoppy finish. The color was super clear, contrary to an earlier comment. I got this beer on tap at Noisy Oyster in Charleston.
