4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler fill. Made with the help of Charlie Schroeder from Trap Rock. Hazy golden (unfiltered), nice white head. Grapefruity citrus aroma, nothing overpowering. Malty flavor with nice hop flavor and bitterness for balance. A well balanced brew, for sure. Hoppy finish. Nice mouth feel. Very nice brew from a suprising source. Look for more suprises from Greg and Charlie in the future!

Pours a slightly cloudy amber gold. Slight hop nose. Flavor is a smooth, slightly hopped character. Kind of piney sweet tone to it. Mild woody taste that’s there, but at the same time, it isn’t. Feel is a bit thick on the liquid with a nice carbonation to it. Overall very smooth. Just a bit thick on the liquid is the only thing I have to say. Absolutely worth trying and definitely well made.

At the 2005 Garden State Brewfest. A decent example of a pale ale. I wish that they would do more things like this. A great session beer that will not disappoint any drinker. I will be looking for this one again.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
sampled at the brewery, thanks Greg. Light orange. medium carbonation. Aroma not very pronounced but I detected some light citrus and piney hops and some malt. Taste is sweet citrus and light pale malts, with an assertive piney bitterness that lingers throughout the finish. This one came in at 5.5 % abv and had a medium body. good!

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2008 Keggerator. Aroma and flavor are more geared towards a heavy herbal german hop in the newer batches and less citrus. Northern Brewer for bittering and Perle for aroma. All scores about the same. Nice new style here- the german pale ale!
On tap at the brewery. Pours a moslty clear golden with a fluffly lasting white head. Aroma is the traditionaly cascade hops, perhaps blended with some german hops- hallertauer? Light pale malt profile- crisp light dough, cookie, and citrus hops all around. Nice clean bitterness in the finihs. Nice easy drinking pale ale. I would want more hops, but this is good.

On tap at Andy’s Springfest. Color was hard to tell as it was in a colored glass. Huge fluffy white head. Very mild aroma
and flavor. Mainly malt at first with some citrusy hops after. Very smooth and very drinkable.

A pretty nice American Pale Ale, poured with a nice initial head, good lacing on the way down. The aroma was citrus and fruity esters. The flavor was grapefruits first along with light fruits, grapes seemed to be present at times. A nice drinkable APA, refreshing and quite crisp.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 The first time I ever had this, I was not impressed. It poured a giant white head, but was much too pale, and not very hoppy. Well, Greg worked on improving it from batch to batch, and it damn well shows...........it still pours the same golden yellow color with the same big white foamy head. It’s still unfiltered, and still unique in the sea of APAs out there, but the overall flavor and drinkability has improved markedly. Hops now come shining through (both in terms of flavor and aroma) at a level that could almost be at the beginning of the IPA spectrum. If you haven’t had this in a couple of years, I suggest giving it a second chance. I’m glad I did.

6/25/05 Garden State Brewfest. Who knew High Point could brew something other than wheats, and have it actually be half decent? Thirst-quenching and smooth on a hot summer’s day.
