22 oz bottle. Looks good, with a deep, clear amber body topped by a large and durable off-white head. Patterned, sticky lacing gets left on the glass. Aroma: I realize this is made with American hops, but the hoppy aroma is earthy and dank, suggesting European hops, albeit with a distinct fruity note. Flavor: piney and grassy with faint citrus. Feel: prickly medium carbonation with medium+ body.

Foxbush (1968) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2016
12oz can Thanksgiving. The APA poured a slightly hazy Amber color with an off white head and nice lacing down the glass. Aroma of floral hops and pale malts. The taste has blended hop bitterness of tropical fruit and pine resin. The medium body ale has average carbonation. Clean finish with some lingering bitterness.

CMcGraw (24) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Copper color. Citrus taste with mild hoppiness. Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass. First impression was good but toward the end was just ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aggiebob (1047) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Can. It has a copper color with a white head that dissipated to a thin cover. Hoppy aroma with a light sense of orange peel. Taste has some sweetness as well but end slightly bitter.

Fairly straight forward pale ale. Hops are mostly a mild bitterness. Fairly dense malt

malvrich (308) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2016
10 week old can into a tulip. A: Deep orange colored finely hazed pour with a tall yellow/beige frothy head. Great retention and lace. S: Stale brown bread scent and nothing else T: Resinous pine and that familiar bitter orange rind flavor that I associate with some ambers. Not bad but not what I had in mind. More of a malt bomb. M: Light to medium heft and average carbonation with a very slight resin on the finish. O: Again, not bad at all but a slight disappointment as I get no citrus, let alone a truckload. Not a repeat purchase.

Can from Tasty Beverage. Again, bought for the name and cause the can was easy to pack. Not bad, with some citrus and spruce hops atop a firm malt backbone. Favorite of 3 average beers from Catawba.
