gsteph (323) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Pours hazy copper with a one finger, quickly dissipating, white head. Some sticky lacing. Subdued nose of citrus, and fresh greenery. Not the hop profile I was hoping for. Flavor is a lightly sweet orange-apricot, bready, with a slight touch of hiding bitterness. The flavor is smooth, clean and crisp. The overall palate is good...but would be better if the flavors were more pronounced and the IBUs were a lot higher.

On-tap at the brewpub in Atlanta. Creamy soapy head on a light grapefruit colour. Hoppy and cramy maltiness, and good lace. Freshness.

May 2006 - Thanks to eaglefan538 for ticking another state off my list. Beer poured crystal clear light yellowish color with little head and lacing. My first taste impression was a citrusy lemon taste. As it warmed, though, a touch of caramel and some bready malt flavors also came forth. The mouthfeel was really smooth and although mildly hoppy, the bitterness wasnt really there. This is one super drinkable beer...the mouthfeel was really the highlight.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Tap @ Flying Saucer Nashville, TN. Pours a clear deep golden with a one finger lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pale malt and light citrus hops. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

Good bitterness, nice amber color and easy drinking. Its wide availability on tap in the south has made it one of my new favorites.

jtw (1153) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2008
bottle thanks to jrob_21. clear light amber color, and a neutrally-fermented aroma of pale malt and west coast hops. not what i would consider bitingly hoppy but certainly nicely bitter. somewhat softer in the body than in the aroma; clean and hoppy with a mild woody aftertaste thats neither sweet nor dry. thanks jonathan!

Draught, Atlanta Georgia Airport, what a treat from a long flight! Poured into a pint glass with clear amber colour and small white head. Nose of floral hops that are vibrant with touches of caramel and fruits. Initial is of grapefruit hops with a small splash of sweet malts. Mid palate is earthy. Finishing with a bitter hops and mild grassiness. Medium Body. Good head retention and lacing of the glass. Enjoyable!

brigg (623) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2008
(bottle) Big, creamy head, and clear amber body. Clean, very floral hop aroma with an underlying malt and sweet fruit. Medium bodied and slightly sticky or oily. Flavor is sweet but refreshing up front, then the dry hops surface with a bitter finish and aftertaste. Some citrus, earthy (wood, grass) notes present as well.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2011 Very good beer. A lot of taste, good body and palate. Still refreshing and it is not heavy at all. You can have several of this one if you get hooked. I had this one on draft. Pours amber with light beige head. Hopy and fruity aroma. Medium sweetness and lightly bitter in the taste. Average carbonation. Medium after taste. Recommended

On tap during a layover in atlanta. This was a pleasant surprise reminding me of sierra nevada harvest ale. Unfortunately mine was served in a frosted mug practically as an ice cube. What I did manage to glean from this illfated encounter may be misrepresentative of the pale ales true being. I for one, would like to revisit at first chance.
