Bottle best before week 4 of Aug. Poured a clear orange amber color with a nice white head. The aroma found floral and hoppiness. Caramel and citrus was found in the flavor. It was a beautiful balance of malts and hops. Medium body that was very smooth in the mouth. Light bitterness throughout. A very enjoyable APA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle best before 3rd week of May. Poured a nice caramel malt amber color with a v. nice head and great lacing. The aroma was of citrus and light floral hops. The flavor was caramel, bready, and some v. light nut and wood notes. The hop finish was fantastic and very well done for a Pale Ale: nice combination of pine, floral, and citrus notes to balance this thing out. Mouthfeel was perfect, just a flat out drinkable beer, a great session beer if looking for such a thing in the GA area!

Draught at The Bier Garden in Asheville, NC. Clear, dark golden color with lasting, foamy white head that laced the glass. Aroma is reminiscent of light apples and flowery hops. Fruity, hoppy flavor up front. Grainy pilsner note at the end.

Hoppy aroma. Nice mouthfeel with average bitterness. Malty intro. I prefer hoppier beers, but this one is good. Very drinkable.

I had this beer on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Athens Ga. It is a great quaffable drink. Nice smooth taste and not overpowering on the alcohol content. This is a deffinate must try.

Nice clear golden color. Not much head. Has a nice subtle hop character in the nose. The taste is balanced with a slightly...very slightly...bitter aftertaste. This is a great every day beer. If you can find it on tap it is even better.
