12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber/golden with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and slightly citrusy hops plus a good amount of pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty solid pale ale, better than I was expecting.
Bottle courtesy of Adam and his dad, thanks gentlemen! Cloudy golden amber color, bright white head. Aroma of fresh tropical fruit and lemon lime. Taste is more bitter than fruity. LilBeerDoctor (3931) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, floral hops, pale bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, caramel malt, light fruits. Very malty pale ale, but enjoyable.

A 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. A gift from my principal (nice guy). Upon cracking open the bottle, there is a moderately pungent hop aroma with a hint of malt sweetness. Pours a clear amber color with a thick, light volume, off-white head that lasts throughout the pint. The strong hop aroma is unrealized with the sip as the hop notes in this beer are subtle and flat. The malts provide a mellow sweetness with notes of cola, spice and bread. While this beer lacks in flavor, there is a nice residual spiciness that lingers on the tip of the tongue. Considering that the ABV of this beer is on the average side, this residual spiciness is thanks to something more crafty than pure alcohol. Despite this tongue-tickle, this drinks like a pale ale for those who want to pound beers. Since SBC is known for their sub-par beers, this offering is one of their better ones.

Moderate malt and hop aroma. Clear golden color with a small white head. Moderate bitter beginning that fades slowly in the finish. Tastes darker than it looks. malrubius (2901) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 2, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Mo’s. Bright pale copper with lasting head and lace. Woody minty leafy hop aroma with some citrus and some malt. Toasted malty backbone with very subdued fruit and very dry medium assertive slightly herbal finish. Nice effervescent carbo accentuates the hops. Medium light body. Very good. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Draft at Southport. Pour has a copper color with a thin coating of white head. Darker than expected for a pale ale. Aroma has some malt, dull bitter side hops, and caramel. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation low. Flavor has a decent bit of malt, caramel, low side bitterness, and a light bit of pine.

pretty solid american pale ale. hoppier than expected. dry. grassy, pine, and grapefruit hops. a bit of doughy caramal. easily my favorite beer of the six i tried from the sampler. so i got a nice big glass which tasted even better for some reason. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 10, 2009
on tap at the Southport location. A light copper hue with a thin white head that totally lacked any serious retention. Aroma was of dull malt notes and some grassy notes, some hops to it. Flavor seemed to have a nice hop presence to it but it was overall a malty APA. Finish was smooth and light. Not impressive but not horrid either.
