Bottle, thanks argo0. Very hazy appearance, small white head. Aroma, is earthy, soap, juniper, citrus--very hoppy. Flavor is very hoppy, grassy aftertaste, nice malty balance with toasted malt, slight caramel. Very tasty, wish I could get it in Raleigh.
Draft at source. Nose is mildly hoppy. Light fruity notes. Taste is lightly bready. Seemingly mild for hops. Lightly sweet. Ok. Good really but not as a pale ale eRock_2013 (461) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Enjoyed this fine craft brew on tap in Asheville. Poured a slightly hazy orange copper, with a steady layer of white foamy head, overall a very appealing display. Starts off a bit mild in the flavor but builds to a slightly resiny hop bitterness. Most interesting however is the surprisingly malty aspect to this otherwise standard pale ale. Lots of fresh grain and caramel malt. Rounded out with a smooth medium bodied texture. An excellent example of the style!

Shaker pint draft at Intermezzo in Charlotte, North Carolina. The pour is a hazed orange copper with a ½ inch light tan head. The aroma is orange and grapefruit citrus, a bit of citrus peel and toasted grain malt. The taste is a nice blend of the softly bitter citrus and the toasted cracker malt. Clean and fresh. The palate is medium to light bodied with active carbonation and a dry mildly bitter finish. Nice Pale Ale. dwm1034 (784) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2016

Tap. Cloudy amber tan color. Aroma of grapefruit. Awesome balance of slight citrus and mild caramel malt. Smooth unfiltered textured. Closest thing to Georgetown Manny’s pale ale I’ve found. jredmond (8204) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2015

Draft pint at Luella’s Bar-B-Que in Asheville, NC; hazy copper-amber color with very light tan head. Aroma notes of citrus/floral hops, some tropical/grapefruit notes with toasty malt balance. Taste adds grass bitterness, some citrus zest, faint dry fruits and grainy malt sweetness. Medium-light body, moderate-low carbonation, dry, tad crisp with some lingering fruity/citrus finish. Overall pretty nice APA, went well with my BBQ platter.
