UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 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 6/18/15 Way better than I remember. Nice citrus at the end and super crisp. Still drinks on the lighter side, but perfect for summer. Pitcher went down easily.

Draft at the brewery. Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was light tropical notes, some pine. Flavor was similar, light crisp notes, tasty fruit and tropical citrus notes. Tasty.

Pours clear golden with a nice eggshell head. Aroma has a note of slightly charred hops - not much else. Flavor has malty and hoppy tones, that’s it. Texture has OK body and little fizz. Fine to slake one’s thirst in this climate-change heat.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Tasted on 7/28/12 on draft at the brewpub with Erika. Pours clear orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is hoppy orange peel with a floral note and a touch of bread malt. The flavor is nicely bitter, with the same bready malt, no real orange note, but nice herbal and floral hops. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter resin hops finish.

My Bottom Line:
This dank Pale Ale works with earthy and citrusy hop resins to give an impression of freshness and brightness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam decorates the misty golden veil.
-Drinkability is high.
-This was great with a chile taco from the Korean(?!) food truck at the brewery.
-Carbonation is soft and the body is slender.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Draught at the Wedge, Asheville, NC. Slightly cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head. Sweet fruity hoppy aroma with maltiness. The flavour is tropical fruits, citrus, mild hoppy bitterness, sweetness and malt. Highly drinkable. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg @ Wedge. Gold pour with a small white head. Pretty mellow and unassuming nose. Honeyed grassy meadow, a bit of pear and cantaloupe. The taste is similar. Moderate bristle of herbal hops. General green biomass. Soft honeyed fruit. Light and easy to drink. Solid effort.
