4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can.
Nice piney hop aroma.
Appearance is orange gold with big lacing head.
Tasting plenty of piney and floral hops with a good semi sweet malt base. Bordering on IPA here. Grass, yeast and pepper also.
Palate is crisp and smooth - nice drinkability.
Overall, I enjoyed the hell out of this one on this hot SC afternoon.
12 oz can from SC.
Pours with a hazy amber body topped with a durable head.
Moderately strong and hoppy aroma but the flavor is bold for style, leaning towards IPA. solidfunk (9944) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2017

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear gold color with a large white head. The aroma is a ton of citrus hops. The taste matches the nose. DialSquare (5230) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2017
12oz can from Whole Foods in Greenville SC: hazy gold, medium off-white. aroma of orange, bready malts. tastes are herbal, grassy, citrus peel, light pepper spice, grain. long light bitter finish. oobawa (2012) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Solid pale ale, good mix of pine, citrus, and caramel, nothing out-of-the-ordinary but enjoyable all the same. Good mango-malt nose, some mango-orange hops to mix with the earthy, sweet malts, and the texture’s nice and silky. Highly drinkable, if not altogether memorable.

Can. Pours a clear, orange Color with a nice three finger head. Aroma is a citrusy, hoppy smell. Taste is also citrusy and hoppy with a nice malt balance. A nice pale ale. NachlamSie (3664) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Can at Tupelo Honey. It’s about what I expected from these guys. It’s on the hoppier end of the style without treading into IPA territory. Nose is kind of grassy with straightforward citrusy notes. The use of caramel malt is generous here. Combined with the hop character, it has that rubber hose kind of flavor. Esters are pretty low and finish is neither strongly dry nor sweet. aracauna (3754) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Very solid APA. Cracker malt and almost enough hops to be an IPA. Pretty good beer. geologyguy (1699) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Light citrus hops smell, taste is smooth hops, but one dimentional, unoriginal, finishes too bitter for me
