Draught. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a thin white head. The aroma was citrus and light pine hops. Flavor was citrus and light pine hops with a medium sweet malt base. Dry finish. This is a solid yet unspectacular APA.

Always a good brew to have aroun home. Nice light copper color and fresh hoppy aroma. The maltiness is just in balance with the hops.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2007
12oz bottle, BBE 1/1/08. Pours a crystal clear bright golden color, stark white foam with subpar retention and almost no retention. Aroma is restrained Cascade hops and little hints of pale malts. Very easy to drink, slight notes of hops, decent malt backbone, a good but not great beer.

Perhaps more bitter than most other pale ales, but the flavor is very distinct and unique.

Bottle from my friends from Georgia. Pretty decent APA, but frankly I found this a bit too grassy for my tastes (I suppose thatís the whole gimmick though). Very crisp and had a good citrus and floral hop flavor to it as well.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Really good beer. I havenít had many Pale Ales but it reminded my of the Dogfish head 60min IPA. Good flavor and aroma. I drank this out of a shaker.

On draft at ATL airport. The darn IPA was empty. So this is what I had. They poured it into a big Ďole tumbler glass. It looks clear copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma is light with malty sweetness and what seems like a combination of citrus and floral hops. The taste comes off as crisp and fresh with mild malt sweetness thatís broken apart by floral hop bitterness and hints of citrus grapefruit hops.
