TomTron (409) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Pours hazy orange with a soapy white head. Aromas of some citrus fruits and light malts. Flavor is a bit up front with malts but the hops kick in for the finish. Alcohol isnít very well hidden but it does do what the label says it will, ring your bell. Overall not bad, but thereís so many better ASAs out there.

jsquire (3578) - 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 (279) - 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 Iíve 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. Canít really figure if I like this one or not, but see it being comparable to Sweetwater 420.

shrubber85 (8104) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2014
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 (575) - 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 wasnít something Iíd 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.
