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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Mostly clear copper color with a small white head. Not much aroma really, just some caramel malt and citrusy hops. Slightly sweet caramel malt base with citrusy resinous hops and some cereal grains. Dry and crisp with a bitter finish. Decent pale ale but not a highlight among all the beers here.

on draft at the brewery. poured pale orangish color with white head that lingered for awhile. lots and lots of carbonation in this glass. aroma is of citrus and a touch of pine resins. the flavor follows suit with the easy going citrus pleasant flavor and nice beer for just sit back and sip. middle of the road pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the source... Pours a vibrant orangey tint and topped with a thin soapy white head...dull grassy and orange aromas. No all that interesting overall... Flavors of orange peel and more akin to a witbier with a slice of orange. A touch of pithy bitterness surfaces late. Medium bodied for a lighter ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden from tap with a thin white head. Building upon the theme of the day big citrus notes on the nose. Slight hoppiness on the tongue. A bit of a fruity finish. Solid but not spectacular.
