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.

Bottle. Caramel malt and weedy grass/alcohol aroma. Hazy golden yelllow with moderate head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter herbal grass flavor. Alcoholic finish. Rough.

BrettTaylor (637) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Poured as a taster - will re-rate once/if I have a full serving. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma - mostly malty with some hop notes underneath; caramel really obvious. Taste - alcohol is there and a bit peppery, some citrus/more resin notes from the hops, and malty sweetness underneath. This was okay, but wasn’t something I’d probably go out and buy again.

On tap Taco Mac Cumming. Hazy light ambernwoth a thin foamy ivory head. Aroma of sweet sugars, caramel, and pine. Huge hop bitterness upfront. Boozy on the finish. Definitely warms you up. Nice sweet malt, burnt sugars, and caramel in between.

Imported by bob from South Carolina. Nice. Hazy cider color. Rich toffee and tea nose. Syrupy. Sweet palate. Hefty caramel. Just enough hops and booze to balance. Very nice.

Hazy filmy amber. Aroma of pine, booze, and caramel. Taste is big sweetness, toffee and caramel. Boozy. Strangely Spritzy for being a big heavy beer. Meh.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 Pours a cloudy brownish yellow, some lacing. Bready malts, hints of citrus on the nose. Malts, brown sugar on the tip of the tongue; big bitter flavors at the back. Nothing special.

boxofrane (2441) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a medium sized khaki colored head that has solid retention. The aroma has some pine, floral notes, a bit of a caramel malt, some candied sugar, a mix of a lot of things. The taste is really sweet, brown sugar, really off aftertaste. Sorry, bad.
