Bob picked this up in Charleston, it was a very nice find! Light orange, very very hazy. (clarity is overrated, see above) Thick off white head. Grapefruit and pine nose. Slight hop bite up front, nice.

PorterPounder (7812) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Chattanooga. Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Pours a murky dark orange with a soft white head that clings to the edges. Aroma has some candied fruit sweetness, a touch of pine. Flavor has some caramel accents, some underlying light citrus bitterness, a touch of white grapes. Mouthfeel has a decent stickiness to it. Decent.

A pretty nice pale ale. Hops define this beer. Not too astringent and very piney. Kind of a one trick pony. Bought this in Houston in 2013.

Can from whole foods Chattanooga - pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is big piney hops. Taste is bitter with a watery palate that reads very thin. Overall, solid, flavorful brew.

Can from whole foods Chattanooga. Pours apricot with an inch of white foam. Massive pine on the nose. The Pine is pretty forward on the tongue and it lingers a bit. Its got some stank to it. I like it.

jkwood04 (5443) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Big can. Looks pale/amber. Aroma of a good amount of floral and lightly citrusy hops plus a little bit of pale malts. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops for a pale ale. Average texture. A decent beer.

Heyyy, a little bit of Texas made available in Chicago! Cant complain. Has a great, piney aroma true to the name, with some good zesty citrus and bitter hops to seal the deal. Solid!
