Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium golden amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that had good retention and left behind some spotty residue that produced some nice sketchy lacing. The aroma was a little on the weak side with some citrus and floral hops, grain and straw malts and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, orange and grapefruit. The taste was lightly sweet and a tad acidic with a hint of caramel and maybe some orange from the onset but quickly became very hoppy and bitter with a strong crisp citrus finish. The flavor only lasted a short while after the swallow and the taste mostly consisted of a hopped up grapefruit. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet dry in texture with a medium carbonation. Overall a nice light refreshing Pale Ale with a big dose of citrus. Most definitely could/would drink a few of these.

The body has deep, slightly orange golden with a very slight haze. Its head is off white and tall. Its retention is very good and as I drink it makes lots of cool lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet and summery with a juicy lemon citrus and grassy/floral hop over pale sweet biscuity/bready malt. There is a light base of bready malt with a touch of honey like sweetness mixed with juicy citrus hops. The hops have a lemonade like sweetness up front then floral and pine notes move in and add mellow bitterness. It finishes with a mild hop linger. The palate has nice lively carbonation and a very drinkable medium body.

Poured into a pint glass on tap: Pours golden (slight amber) with a thich white head. Aroma of lemon grass, soap, and malt.. Taste is much lighter than I would have guessed from the aroma., Light hops, a bit sweet, but overall a nice sessionable IPA. Light body, light carbonation. Not bad.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Somewhat low on aromas but palate and flavors are excellent with an expertly balanced bitterness and a smooth, refreshing mouthfeel.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Pint mug From: Total Wine in Ballantyne (Charlotte), N.C. Price: $15.99 for a variety 12-pack Purchased: July 30, 2014 Consumed: July 30, 2014 Misc.: Enjoy by Sept. 25, 2014 Poured a caramel, orange clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy off-white head. Below average spots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Below average retention on the top all the way down. Really had to work for the smell, but got moldy wet hops, light orange rind, floral hops, citrus hops, orange zest and caramel wheat. Tasted a bit better than the nose. Got tangerine rind, orange zest, floral hops, citrus hops, grass hops, caramel and some unknown spices. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. Definitely more EPA than APA, but still just OK.

Voodoo (315) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a clear medium golden with a fluffy white head which lingers......aroma of sweet malt, touch of pine, yeast.......taste is very thin in the mouthfeel which diminishes the experience,touch of biscuittiness, bitterness and little flavor time hops. Not so much a west coast pale as just a pale but short on body.
