Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice light hazy orange color with a decent one finger white foamy head that dies within less than 45 seconds. The lacing left a little bit to be desired. The smell had a nice conglomeration of bittersweet hops to sweet malts. The taste was mainly bittersweet all the way through. On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium and showed a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed right on for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a good American Pale Ale well worthy of having again.

A nice citrusy pale ale. Hazy pale orange in color with a white head and some lacing. Served in a frozen glass. Fuck. Ice on the top. Tastes ok as it warms up.

Bottle pours light clear amber with big white head. Aroma is nice fruity pebbles with pine. Taste is clean fruity hops with a light malt base, and a dry bitter finish.

This is a good middle of the road beer from a good local brewery. Pours very clear, deep straw with medium head. Not a complex brew but interesting enough to be a go to on many restaurant beer lists.

Bottle from Kroger. Amber with an inch of off-white head. Smells of light citrus and some grasses. Has a nice floral taste throughout, but thereís also a cheap lager tinge to it that Iím just not crazy about.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy, still amber-straw color with noticeable sediment and an average-sized foamy off-white head with decent retention and good lacing and cling. Its aroma featured a blend of pine, citrus, and herbal hops with some lighter tones of wheat and yeast, along with a bit of caramel malt. The beer had a fairly bitter grainy-citrus flavor with a strong sour barley grain effect and a touch of sweetish caramel and yeast. It had above average carbonation with a thicker mouthfeel and a fairly dry body.

Bottle - Pretty hoppy flavor on this, not very complex. I must admit this is not a very special beer. Itís not bad, just middle of the road in my opinion.

Bottle - light rust look with a small head. Light sweet malty flavor. Didnít seem hoppy at all. Medium body and a fairly dry finish. I didnít really find it all that appealing.
