Hoppy hoppy is the way to describe this pale ale. A little too malty in my opinion but still very good. Pours copper in color with a tan head. Had a draft in myrtle beach ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pretty tame aroma. Lightly hoppy. Flavor is also pretty mild for a 8% beer. Well balanced with mild citrus hops and caramel malt. Alcohol well hidden. I would certainly drink it again.

JStax (3438) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a pretty hazy copper with a thin head of beige foam. The aroma has a lot of wood and pine character. Somewhat resinous. The taste is pine bitterness. Not awful, but really not good either. Bigger body, thick mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

jsquire (3669) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Amber color with a short off white head. Nose of grapefruit rind and alcohol. There is a lot of caramel sweetness in this balance with a pretty raw hop juice grapefruit/pine flavor. The alcohol is omnipresent and gets a little aggressive as it warms.

rustbucket0873 (287) - Krikville, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Pours a hazy golden to amber color with little head. The aroma is grapefruit and pine, with malt and caramel. The flavor is much yhe same, masks the hogh alcohol very well. Palate is sweet with a bitter finish. And warming on the way down. Very well balanced beer.

Bought a six pack in Spartansberg, SC. Liked the description. Going to stick my neck out a bit, but I think its one of the better Double Pale Ales I’ve had over the years. Love the light amber & hazy color. Of course it has a thin, foamy head due to the 8% gravity. Has sweet aroma of caramel & pine (as they say, "a swift flavor combo of bitter hops & sweets malts) with a hoppy bitterness upfront and a sweeter finish of burnt sugars with caramel in between. Enjoy!

Bottle. Grass notes and does have a bite. Can’t really figure if I like this one or not, but see it being comparable to Sweetwater 420.
