Draft. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.

A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light floral hops with catty notes, light malt. In mouth, a thin IPA with light floral hops, lightly lactic, unabalanced and a bit boring. On tap at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, Oct. 22 2011.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Terminal. Poured clear lighter golden with a short white head. The aroma picked up softer grapefruit and pine notes over plain pale malts.. more edge from the hops as it warmed.. excellent balance. The flavor found nondescript pale malts topped by moderate pine and lesser grapefruit bitterness.. sharp at the end, lacking direction. Medium-bodied, dry, and bitter on the palate.. scratchy on the back-end.. OK flow.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the 2010 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Orange, thin ring of foam. Smells great - Grapefruit and other citrus, some subtle malt in the background. First sip brings more citrusy hop goodness, subtle malt, and a dryish, stoney finish. I had to have a few samples of this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Served up a well-hazed, orange-hued body with a full inch of near-white foam.
Smell: Well, it most definitely smells hoppy. I’ll give it that. Sharp notes of shimmering resin and moist lemon pith fill the nose. Supporting, background hint of lightly toasted, bready malts.
Taste: Lightly sweet pale malts quickly transition into a citric, pithy, resinous hop character and staunch bitterness. Drying finish filled with plenty of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Slight heft of oiliness to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: One for the hopheads. If you’re in the mood for a boldly bitter brew while stopping in at the Terminal BrewHouse, then this is one to reach for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An orange pour with a slightly off white head and lace. Nice aroma of grapefruit and evergreen. A rich sweet caramel maltiness with a very nice finishing bitter and a bit of earthy undertones. Medium bodied with nice carbonation.
