look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle.
Pours pale golden in color with a decent head.

Has a fine hoppy aroma with a touch of sweet malts.

Flavor: A typcial APA with an average hop level.

Feel: thin body is too watery.

O: A disappointing offering from a brewery that has some much better beers.

Had this on 2013-09-27 and again on 2014-03-30 in Columbia, PA

A - Fairly clear, golden-yellow with a 3-finger white head and good lacing.

S - Orange, peach, hop floral, tea, very little malt. Mild but nice.

T - Orange tea, peach skin, aspirin, lemon zest and a bit of malt sweetness. Finishes very dry with some fruit and lasting bitterness.

M - Light body and medium carbonation. Crisp, lightly prickly.

O - This is a decent, sessionable brew. It's got a flavor unlike other sessionable pale ales. It's not as fragrant as Founder's All Day IPA and Stone's Go To IPA. Not as much caramel malt as 21st Amendment Bitter American.

Poured this into a Samuel Smith Nonic. The body is light gold--almost as light as your average American lager. The head is white and thin and simmers down to a wee skim.
The aroma is intense with a combo of lemon, peach, raw cigarette tobacco, and white sugar. Nice.
The taste is everything above, finishing with a not so subtle, tiger out of the cage, hop bite.
This is right up there with all the great APA's. I hope this brewery expands to the point that they can market this brew in 12 packs as soon as possible.

Poured from a cask at Duckworth's, Huntersville, NC, into an American pint glass.

Pours cloudy and golden with a viscous head and thick sticky lacing. There's a lot to like here, loads of piney citrus notes from the hops please both the nose and the mouth. There are also notes of bread, green tea and hints of onion. No idea how this compares to the kegged version, but this is a damn nice and creamy brew I could drink all day. I highly recommend you try this if you see it.
