3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Pisgah. Looks good; a fairly transparent deep golden orange with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes of hops and pale malt with a touch of grain on the tongue. Average on the palate. A solid no-frills APA.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy honey golden with a fairly thick golden buff head. Rich aroma has equal parts malt and hops, with a hint of honey. Flavor floods the palate with sweet malt, woody and resiny hops, fresh-from-the-hive honey, and pomme fruit - I got a hint of apricot in there. Texture is firm and fizzy, leaving a woody hop finish. If this is not the best pale ale I have ever had the privilege to get on the outside of, it is certainly one of the top five!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2014 Had as part of flight at Juicy Lucy’s. Will make a point to try at source. This is one of the beers that got me into craft beer in the first place. Now it is just a solid pale- nothing special, but really drinkable. Pours nice orange color with decent head. Malt and hops on the palate- not leaning one way or the other. Caramel, grass, citrus, toffee, bread, orange. Pretty balanced if a bit boring. Different hop profile from the usual adds interest. Solid.

Can from wine 101 in wf nc. Great pale ale. Best parts of this beer are it's orange brown appearance and it's straight from the brewery smell. It's smell really makes you think you are sitting at the brewery.

Can. Orange color, tan head. Hops, citrus, grass in the nose. Taste is maltier than i would have expected. Smooth, easy to drink. Thicker than it should be. Nit bad though.

It’s alright, I’ve had better. The malt and hops overpowers the palate. Smooth but has a bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft taster at the brewery. Pours a clear, bright gold with an off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace in the glass. Notes of pale and sweet malts, grass, straw, and light fruits. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Decent, straightforward pale ale.
