3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at the brewery. Pours a clear gold color with a small white ring for a head. Very clean- fresh, hoppy, and light. Florals, citrus, pale malts, and straw. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Good pale ale, would be nice on a warm day. Guess I liked this a lot more than others did.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
on tap @ Wedge Brewing --- Clear, light amber, vthick rim head, wide bands of lace. Taste is watery malt with a quick, but light infusion of hops. All moves to a finish that is mostly slightly sour carbonation. Thin, uninteresting, not a keeper.

really easy to drink if not all that interesting. much prefer the iron rail but this is well balanced with some interest in the finish. pours a bit lighter than my "ideal" apa and somewhat hazy. taste is refreshing- guess I was expecting more with canadian malt being involved........Not bad, not great.

Beer #21 Asheville trip. Pale orange, slight haze. Nice aroma, grapefruit, slight pine, touch of biscuit malt. Flavor is a match. A very well done APA. Bit of a spicy note comes through as it warms - I now see that it used some rye, so that might explain this. Really liked this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the brewer, this pours a deep straw orange into the glass, with a fully dissipating fluff head that ends leaving trace lace. The nose is of hay, straw and country silage, nice. Citrus and nice bitters to the tongue, mingling with pale malts, everything in harmony. A touch of saison farmhouse notes in there, closing on a lightly peppering bitter finish. Somewhat medium bodied, yet lively on the palate, it makes for a great afternoon summer quaff.

Barnyard, grassy aroma. Light gold color. Thin body, yeast and hops in the flavor. Smells hoppier than it tastes.
