3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Light amber body. This one seems maltier and a bit more pedestrian than their other offerings, including the wonderful weaker ABV but hoppier Napoleon Complex. Solid but nothing remarkable.

Growler into a tulip glass. Funny how because this beer doesnít absolutely floor me that I want to hate on it because Wicked Weed has spoiled my palate with the finest use of hops. Objectively, this is a very good pale ale. Itís light on the palate, refreshingly citrusy with a reasonably complex and immaculate hop presence. Itís highly sessionable and well balanced. Itís a great light-bodied beer which is what I think they were going for here. If I could get 6 packs of cans of this, Iíd drink it all summer long at the pool.

Big orangey hops. Nicely balanced malts. Very solid American pale ale. I like the hops here.

On tap at WW, Asheville. Thanks, Abbie! Nice looking medium orange pour, a touch cloudy, light fluffy head. Brisk and inviting aroma, mostly bright citrus with moderately bitter notes too. Full mouthfeel, light and thirst-quenching at the same time. Flavors a bit understated when compared to the nose, but fairly complex as these beers go and certainly a worth session brew.

A pint consumed at the brewpub with a meal. A nice pale ale, golden-colored, and a light head. Citrus and pine on the nose. A bit of a bitter honey flavor on the palate wrapped up with a grapefruit finish. It was okay, but not exceptional.
