COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber colored pale ale was the first beer we brewed together, so it was only fitting to name it FIRST BITE. Generous additions of American hops, light body and a dry.finish give it plenty of flavor and aroma while still remaining highly drinkable. YOU GOT BITTEN

12oz bottle: pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hop nose with a touch of perfume and lightly toasted pale malts. Starts with good fullness and carbonation and light malty sweetness with a touch of honey and lots of fresh piny hop flavor and clean bitter balance before a drier bittersweet finish. Very drinkable and true to style.

jbruner (2285) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Growler shared at RBWG! Pours a translucent copper with fluffy off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of fresh hoppy resins and a good caramel and crystal malt back. Taste follows, really hoppy and resinous, fresh and clean with a good bitter finish. If it weren’t for the low alcohol I would call this a solid IPA.
