Big, coarse, white head; clear, copper-yellow body. Faint aroma of citrusy hops. Taste is clean and light, dominated by the citrus hops, with a a clear, bitter finish. An okay ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of floral hops, sweet orange. Appears a crystal clear golden color, with noticeable effervescence of medium-sized bubbles, and with an orange head that dissipates. Flavor is sweet malt and grain with strong notes of orange, followed by an assertively hoppy finish. Palate is medium-light, refreshing. Overall, a very tasty brew, and a bit more than the sum of its parts.

Not bad.. Poured a nice golden color with a very thin white head. Aroma of floral hops. Taste is crisp and hoppy with just a touch of bitterness. Not a big fan of pales but this wasn’t bad. I can see why it’s their most popular beer.

medium body, lively, long finish, medium bitterness, I got to have this beer on Jam Cruise 4 onboard a Carribbean cruise.
I sampled this on day one and wound up sticking with it through most of the trip.
I drank from the bottle and regret never pouring into a glass to admire it’s looks.
Let’s get this one into Florida please.

Pours orangeish amber, with thin white head. Nose is spicey and floral hops with sweet malty goodness. Flavor is the nose, but on the tongue. Yummy, nothin’ great but yummy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well rounded american pale ale. Average carbonation, balanced hoppy bitte flavor. Quality throughout. Those who favor the big beers will find it a bit mild flavored.

Good stuff. On tap and out of the bottle. Nice and crisp flavor. Could drink multiples here. Certainly not the best pale ale, but it’s great to have it so close to Atlanta.

Wow! How can I explain it?
This is the most full-flavored, smoothe, aftertaste-free beer you will ever drink!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A healthy aroma of hops introduces this beer. The glass is filled with a Venetian gold liquid tat settles under a small white head.
The taste is a bitter hoppy one that lingers well.
