12oz. Pours lighter golden with a nice foamy white head. Aromas of light citrus rind, grass, and some floral notes. This is very light bodied and drinks very easy. Light hop presence with light grapfruit, grass, and some herbal notes. Decent at best but nothing to write home about....

PorterPounder (5472) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Atlanta, Ga - Hop City - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly fading off-white head. Aroma has a slight spruce bent to it, bit not well pronounced. Flavor is standard pale ale, some light citrus bitterness, a touch of brief cake mix, some white grape juice. Mouthfeel has a decent crispness to it. Decent session material.

Bork (131) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bitter, piney hops completely dominate this pale ale. Neither body nor malt manages to balance it properly.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Poured a deep yellow color from the 16 ounce can, with aromas of light citrus, malt and some resin. Flavors were floral hops with some light citrus and some malt. Light overall.

Dr_Fellini (393) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Draft. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with a large offwhite head. Aroma is a faint citrus, resiny hop character with a touch of pale malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit bland, with light malty sweetness. Very light in body. Goes down easily. An OK pale, but nothing extraordinary.

Dacrza (508) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2014
DATE REVIEWED: July 12, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: return from a great day at Point Pleasant--tired but thirsty...APPEARANCE: pours a bright, almost completely clear orange-yellow with crisscross effervescence; white head flames up the glass after thinning out efficiently; little lacing... AROMA: melon and bubblegum invade the nostrils; flowery hints of springtime and perfume--an attractive start... PALATE: a bit hard at the start, forcing expectations to more of an IPA--but thin at the end, with a lagerish aftertaste...in essence, a slightly uncomfortable mouthfeel... TASTE: dishwasher lemon zest comes through most prominently with some hay mown in; an odd, lagerish malty quality hovers at the edge of each sip; slightly sour ... OVERALLL: the "grateful" appellation suggests to me that something is owing to the Deadís legacy, musical or otherwise, but this ale offers a slightly disjointed flavor profile, with enough syrupy, candied sweetness to challenge the drinker towards the next sip--not the goal of a pale ale...

12 ounce bottle. Bright yellow gold with a large foamy white head. Fresh citrus, pine hop aroma. Light toasted malt nose, as well. Light toasted malt flavor with a slight metallic note. Grassy hops with a slight citrus twang. Dry hop finish. Ordinary, at best.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Clear, golden pour with a decent sized, creamy white head. Aroma isnít very strong, primarily grapefruit. Medium bodied, pleasant amount of carbonation. Grapefruit and orange flavor. Malt profile is solid - very well balanced for a low abv brew with this much hoppiness. Nothing very unique about it though. Maybe a bit too citrusy.

trapped (756) - New York City, TURKEY - JUN 20, 2014
Drought. Pours bright yellow with white foamy head, yeast aroma, bitter yeasty taste, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Quite a forgettable experience.

A true session beer. Citrus hops, pale malts, light citrus really dominate this APA. Hop dominant in the forefront. Then a bit sweet before turning just a bit bitter. It just didnít hit it out of the park. Too cliche. Enjoyable though.
