Tasted On: 06-15-2012
Freshness: Unknown
Packaging: Growler
Glassware: Tulip pint
Purchased: Filled at Whole Foods, Nashville

A: Clear and bright, with a light copper coloring. The head is 2 fingers high, white and frothy. Head retention is good, as is the lacing.

S: Aromas are primarily hop-based, showing citrus, grapefruit and floral notes. Some malt presence with biscuit and light caramel smells.

T/M: As with the aroma, the taste is dominated by the hops. Clean, with a medium body, with flavors of citrus and grapefruit-like hop bitterness. Carbonation is medium to high. The aftertaste is bitter and moderately acidic.

O: I thought this was an average pale ale that seemed a bit lacking in flavor depth.

Just had this beer this weekend during a fund raiser event. Can not get this beer in the PHL area.

Found the beer to be refreashing and very enjoyable.
Great color and great mouth feel. Really enjoy an IPA and found this one to be of great flavor but not bitter.

Great summer beer, nice bit but not overwhelming.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Standard copperish gold, finger head recedes pretty fast.

S: Some hops. Sort of biscuity. Not a lot going on with the smell

T: Hoppy, sort of earthy. Drinks more like an IPA.

M: Though it reminds me of an IPA, it's pretty light.

Overall: It's an ok beer. Not worth almost $10 for a sixer at the grocery store near me. It's bitter like an IPA but not much else...no citrus or resin that I typically enjoy.

Poured into a glass at Brent's Drugs, Jackson, MS during a play reading. Not bad for $2.

A: rust colored with a half finger head that dissipates pretty quick. Leaves a thin white circle of head around the glass. Light lacing.

S: Piney resins dominate with a pinch of malt thrown in.

T: Hops come through with a real flourish, then begin to diminish. Slightly bitter finish, but not overpowering. Crisp and clean. Floral and citrus notes from the dry hopping.

M: light to medium; low carbination.

O: Very smooth. Drinks more like an IPA. Hopheads will cheer for this one.

Brew was drank at the Lazy Magnolia Brew House in the Gulfport-Biloxi airport on-tap.

Appearance - A nice copper hue with a decent head, goes away swiftly. Good lacing on the glass, pretty transparent

Smell - Mild spices, a little biscuity, some light citrus notes. Not much to speak of, honestly.

Taste - The hop bitterness in this beer is pretty haphazard. It hits you up front and on the finish. There is vague references to floral and citrus flavors, but not much.

Mouthfeel - I like the crisp, clean, bitter finish! There is just a collision of flavors that don't transition smoothly.

Overall - This ain't a bad brew. I love pale ale, and they got the bitterness down, but not much else. If they invented the "Southern Pale Ale" style like they say, I think it'd be a good idea to work on the recipe a little to bring it more cohesion. Not too bad, nut had a lot better.

Dry hopped with whole leaf Cascade. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a golden color with a two-finger head with good retention.
Aromas of hops, citrus and pine.

Opens with hop bomb bitterness that tips the balance on malt. Taste profile moves into a subtle touch of pine and hint of grapefruit. Crisp and light bodied. Finishes dry with a sustained graininess.

DSPA tastes like an aggressively hopped American IPA with a trace of wheat character. Me likey.

12oz brown ale with no freshness date.

LOOK: Big froth, shiny golden

SMELL: Spicy, floral, orange zest, hint of pine, biscuity, yeast, faint esters

TASTE: Bitter, vegtal, thin graininess, orange peel, leafy, earthy, grainy, dry, chalky yeast

Assertive with a lot going on, a bit chaotic as the hoppiness runs a bit astray and there is not much there to tame it. One and done.

16 ounce pint - $4.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Served a light copper body, quite clear, and topped with an eighth of an inch of whitish foam.

Smell: Forward notes of caramel, pale malts, and a bit of basic breadiness ahead of the citrus (quietly pithy) and lowly resinous florals.

Taste: Sugar-toned pale malts with a bit of pils, too. Faint florals and citrus fruitiness. Medium-light bitterness. A minor hint of light-colored caramel joins the party with some warmth, though later and lighter than expected from the nose. Closes out lightly bitter and dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Works as a nice little slender, sleek, food-friendly ale.

Pours a light gold, reminds me of your everyday pilsner. Slight lacing and a light fluffy head.

Smells of light hops and maybe a mild citrus. There's also a soapiness to it, although I didn't mind it.

Tastes very pale indeed. Not much going on but certainly better than what your dad drank. I think this would be a good starter beer to get someone familiar with the bitterness of a decently hopped beer. The more I drank it, the more the hops stayed with me. It left that good high pitched bitter aftertaste but unfortunately it fades quickly. Fairly light bodied and refreshing. I would call this a good tailgater.
