COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our pale ale is a perfect blend of whole leaf Chinook and Mount Hood hops and rich organic malts. A crisp, clean profile make this beer distinct.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2008
On tap at Asheville Mellow Mushroom. Nice hoppy aroma, with apricot and resin and some grassy quality. A bit of malty sweetness. Amber-dark orange murky liquid, with little head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts fairly dry, with light caramel malt and a bit of brown sugar. Fairly smooth hop bitterness from start, culminating with a medium harsh chalky bitterness at the end. Nutty dry finish with carbonic tang.

Pours very cloudy and sticks to the glass. Looks like apple cider. Smells good. Tastes good, hoppy and good bite. Very good for a pale ale.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2008
Draft at the brewery on 4/17/2008. Deep gold pour with a substantial off white head that showed some staying power. Nice hoppy aromas of pine and citrus, with a hint of spiciness as well. Some honey and light toffee make an appearance, but in the background. Medium body and carbonation with a dry, clean palate. Well balanced between the light maltiness and the citrus rind that lead to a medium-long bitter finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2008
On tap at Ruby’s in Asheville. This beer was quite crisp and just screamed freshness. Really enjoyable. Nice floral hops: citrus and floral flavors were predominate but not over the top; neither soapy nor overly piney/resiny. Enough malt to make me think of an English style pale ale, but definitely American. I really liked this beer.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2008
off-white fizzy head (mostly lasting) into cloudy tea like body. good lacing present. aromas of light grapefruit, light caramel, tough of soapyness, and a peanuty aroma in aftertaste. flavor of light bitterness throughout. long finish duration. actually great for a pale ale as i normally hate them.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours a copper color with a white head. Aroma is caramel and some earthy, citrus hops. Flavor is malty, caramel, toasted malts, and a bitter hoppy finish.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tap @ Barleys Taproom Asheville, NC. Pours a clear copper with a one finger off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of floral hops with a hint of pine and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Very good.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Draught (entered from old notes). Pours gold with white head. The aroma is a touch of sweet malt and planty hops. The flavor is honeyish and sugary malts with some hop bitterness and citrus. In the finish, though, is a slightly offputting botanical note. This has the potential to be tasty and refreshing... I’m guessing a rearrangement of the hop schedule might help it out. Still decent, though.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Growler sampled on 6/30/07: Pours a transparent bright orange bronze with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of slightly citrusy American hops and some grainy pale malt. Body starts a little thinner and grainy with some mild grapefruity hops toward a crisp bittersweet finish. A decent APA.

Draft at Carmel’s in Asheville. Hoped for more hop punch to it. Almost had a skunky taste to it like it was infected.
