3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very tasty PA. Lots of pine, citrus on the nose. Very very hopped. Pours a dark yellow with a medium soft head. Lots of lacing. Taste is a heavily hopped malt blend that goes down smooth.
Tumbles from the bottle as all head of white and slowly melts into a clear medium yellow.
Light hop aroma.
The flavor is lightly bitter with a dry finish. Not bad, but I’d rather have a SNPA. thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Pour is a hazy golden with a average white head. Aroma is kind of sugary with a faint whiff of hops. Flavor is more bitter then hoppy. If fact any trace of hops are hard to com by here. This brewer does make some solid beers this was not one of them. Really bland and just a very small trace of hops. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. I was a little disappointed in this one. Loved the fancy packaging but the beer inside was not so good. Orange in color with a very then head, Aroma was a weak, grass, hay slight citrus smell. The taste was extremely weak with hints of grass, hay, watery finish.

Pours a pale gold with an off white head. Aroma is piny with a freshness to it. Taste is pretty good albeit a tad bland with some citrus and a pine punch on the bqckend. Bif (2245) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2015
On tap. Served a nice golden color with a foamy head that fades to good lacing. Aroma of lemon, citrus and some malt sweetness. Taste of citrus with malt sweetness and bit of grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a nice malty feel. Nice beer that goes down easy.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Light orange amber, aroma of capsicum, green hops. Light sweet malts, grassy peppery hops, moderate bitterness. Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Orange, clear, thin head. Smells grassy and a little corny. Taste is sweet, some oniony bitterness, and a dry woody finish. nearbeer (5419) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
12 oz. pours lightly hazy copper and has a film of foam. Nose is caramel, resin, darkish bread and a touch of citrus. Tastes of earthy tea, toffee, resin, toasted pecan, bitter wood, sourish orange and overripe apple. Near medium body has medium carbonation and a long wooden/cardboard finish that’s the least pleasant thing about this otherwise tasty ale. Frank (4194) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2015
At six percent alcohol, I might just go ahead and call this an IPA but, whatever, it is a tasty, hoppy ale that is pale in color one way or the other. For some reason the faux painted glass of Carson’s beers made me think they’d be crappy but they have all been really tasty so far and this is no exception. It is bright orange in color and its head is made of even-sized medium bubbles and is quite long lasting. There is a fruity white grape character to the hops in this that I quite enjoy along w/ the more typical citrus/grapefruit character you come to expect. A slight touch of sweetness and bready malt character brings out some juicy orange character once you taste it and it all comes together very nicely. This is a medium to full bodied beer w/ fine but vigorous carbonation to keep things nice and drinkable. It finishes w/ a firm citrus rind bitterness and a light touch of caramel sweetness. This is a really done beer whatever style you might want to call it. It is not breaking any new territory but there is something to be said for just making a style everyone likes and making it really well. rubbishystuff (2538) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 From BandC. Perfectly acceptable not extraordinary APA. In addition to the grapefruit the hops were a big peppery. Serving: Bottle
