Bottle from my friends from Georgia. Pretty decent APA, but frankly I found this a bit too grassy for my tastes (I suppose that’s 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 haven’t 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 ‘ole 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 that’s broken apart by floral hop bitterness and hints of citrus grapefruit hops.

It was a decent beer especially for a pale ale. It is dark and similar to the IPA.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours orange with a spotty white lacy head. Aroma of wheat bread, pepper, grass, lemon and orange. Tastes of bread and grass with something tangy about the flavor and the way it lays on the tongue, but it’s not citrusy really. The finish is toasty and has more citrus flavors. Really drinkable, easy going and light. Hits the tongue in a really mild way. Not bad.

DeweyDell (159) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber color. Mild hoppy aroma, nicely balanced with sweet malts. Flavor is the same... mild, balanced. I actually had this on tap last week, and it was more flavorful and fresh... It’s not a huge beer, but it’s good and very drinkable.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours clear, filtered, pale golden with a small bubbly white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is very biscuity with a light touch of sweet malts. Taste is lightly bitter, smooth, malty, kind of tasteless but not in a bad way, if that makes sense. Light to medium bodied. Short finish. This would be a nice session beer. Not very flavorful or anything but a nice easy drinking brew.

A very good American micro-brew. If you can find it on tap even better. It’s a good outdoors beer.
