A copper apperance with a white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy with some grapefruit, oranges, and peaches. Millions of peaches, peaches for me! The flavor has a nice malt presence with some caramel, orange, and pine. A good session APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Appearance: Vaguely hazy ambery body with a foamy, white head.
Smell: Caramel malt mixed with fruity notes of grapefruit and melon. Somewhat woody.
Taste: Though the hops lead the way in the aroma, they’re mostly mild and light in the taste, with the caramel malt sweetness picking up the slack. Still, the hops bring flavors of grapefruit and citrus. Again, there’s that forest-like woodsiness. The sweetness and bitterness cancel each other out for a fairly light, neutral finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Mild carbonation.
Drinkability: A solid, delightful, easy-drinking APA.

The aroma was earthy with a bit of citrus and a floral note. Some light malt character was notable and a smidge of lemon. The beer was clear amber golden with a white rocky head which worked well on the glass. The flavor was heading on the downslide due to the age of the growler but contained a nice light citrus, some grass and an earthy presence of hop flavor and bittering. The bittering was well balanced with the caramel malt. Medium bodied with a creamy character in the mouthfeel. Overall much fresher on tap than in the growler, but still a solid pale ale. Growler purchased at Earth Fare in Asheville.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 toast, earthy, golden, cloudy, frothy, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, soft carbonation; my current "everyday" beer. I also love the fact that its certified USDA Organic. Pisgah Brewing company opens their doors to the public in order to buy fresh growlers on Thursdays 4-7 pm. Check website to get directions.

On tap at Barleys in Asheville. I love this beer. It was so good. Not too hoppy and not too bitter, Just right. One of my favorite beers so far. I could drink this one everyday if Pisgah would start making bottles.
