JPDIPSO (5796) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Lightly hazed amber colored liquid. Moderate sized beige head. Decent lace. Nuts, citrus peels and caramel in the aromas. Alcohol is quite evident from the first sip sending a quiver through the body. Flavors of berries, orange peels and toasted malt. Actually the finish is quite malt and enjoyable. A bit unbalance in other areas. 10/11

HighlanderOne (1248) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt. Appearance is cloudy gold. Looks frozen. Tasting pine resin, loads of malt, floral hops, brown sugar, alcohol. Palate is heavy and slightly metallic. Overall, this one did not appeal to me. And what the heck is "double pale ale"?

12 oz bottle The ale a gift from a friend at grandsons birthday in Columbia. The ale poured a hazy light Amber with a small head. The aroma was of light pale malts and pine. The ale had a medium body wth average carbonation. Nice ale with a smooth finish with fruit in the aftertaste.

Hoppy hoppy is the way to describe this pale ale. A little too malty in my opinion but still very good. Pours copper in color with a tan head. Had a draft in myrtle beach ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pretty tame aroma. Lightly hoppy. Flavor is also pretty mild for a 8% beer. Well balanced with mild citrus hops and caramel malt. Alcohol well hidden. I would certainly drink it again.
