3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a can into a narrow glass to drink. The beer had a somewhat hazy deep copper-orange color with a good-sized foamy off-white head with good retention, but lighter cling and lacing. Its aroma had subtle notes of pine and citrus along with a bit of grainy hops and yest, but was a bit underdeveloped overall. The taste was modestly bitter with notes of citrus and grain, some floral components and had a slight sour touch. It was a fairly lively beer with good carbonation and a dry mouthfeel with average thickness.

7/26/15. Can. Pours hazy light orange with a nice head. Ctitrus fruit nose with a touch of biscuit. Very solid APA with great malt hop alcohol balance. Wish it was available in NC.

A nice fairly average beer that is easily drinkable. Decent dark orange pour w/ a white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is subtle w/ some sweetness & hops coming through. The taste is sweet upfront & finishes a bit bitter. Has a good soft mouthfeel. Not bad!

Great color and build, with less oomph than I can appreciate because of my palate

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a clear light copper body under a small frothy off-white head that left a bit of sticky lacing. The nose is rather light on the hops, there’s just a minimal floral note over the toasty and caramel maltiness. The flavor is a little light on the hops as well, just a little floral hop flavor and minimal bitterness. More toasty and caramel malt flavor than hops in this one. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft fizzy carbonation. A little below average for the style I’d say.

This is a great local beer and I can’t believe I haven’t rated it already. It’s a solid, mild pale ale that must be enjoyed fresh/cold since it is non-pasteurized. Taste is very well balanced between sweet caramel malts and cascade hops. The challenge I have run into with this beer is that, depending on the time of the year, if it isn’t fresh and hasn’t been stored 100
% cold by the retailer, the beer is ruined.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours great with a nice orange, reddish hue to it, it has an amazing off white head that lingers on and on and great lacing on the glass. (EDIT: The beer stil had head going after I completed this review, 5 minutes later). The smell is decent with a nice blend of malt and hops that blends nicely together and a hint of citrus on the back end. The taste is much the same with the malty taste, followed by the hops that hangs around on the back end with a mild resin flavor. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean, and well cabonated. Overall, when I had got this beer, I didnt give it much of a chance but that changed after having tried it. Highly recommended.
