3.8/5 rDev +2.2%
On-tap at Mellow Mushroom, Asheville, NC
A: The beer is relatively clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose-orange seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of citrusy hops along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a slight amount of crispness.
O: This is a nice easy drinking APA that is filled with aromas and flavors of citrus. It is a good choice if you are looking a flavorful beer that's very easy to drink.

3.85/5 rDev +3.5%
Served on tap at Foothills Brewing Company in Winston-Salem, NC.
A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper in color with some orange highlights and light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of citrus hops with a lighter amount of pine/resin and earthy hops.
T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of pale and caramel malts with very little sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of pine/resin and citrus/orange rind hops. Just a touch of some earthy hops in there are well. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Pretty enjoyable and easy to drink - sessionable due to the moderate amounts of bitterness and low ABV. Definitely one to get again.

Ont tap at the brewery.
Pours and amber/orange with a small white head that rings. Smell is light grapefruit hops and the unmistakeable crystal malt. Lots of pale/crystal type malt in the taste, med-light body and med carb.
Very similar to the SN Pale Ale but fresher tasting . This isn't too surprising as SN pretty much invented the style.
