a cloudy orangeish yellow body with a thin off white head that displays good staying power and average lacing. taste and smell are bready biscuity malts with some citrus hops in the background. mouthfeel is above average for me. extra driness without the overpowering bitterness. maybe a tad on the thin side. overall its nice, but i dont know that i would buy again.

4/5  rDev +13.3%

On tap at Wine 101 in Wake Forest.

Pours a golden orange with little head. The nose is bready, toasty, and has some citrusy hop notes. The flavor is malt forward with a big, bready, biscuity malt character with some underlying notes of burnt toast. The hop character is very citrusy with notes of grapefruit complementing the malts. There is a faint bitterness in the finish, but it's balanced and welcome. The mouthfeel is light bodied, smooth, and crisp.

This is an easy drinking, flavorful, sessionable beer. It's worth trying.

3.35/5  rDev -5.1%

Pours a clear orange with a big, fluffy white head that lingers and laces.

Smells of bready malt, pine, floral hops, and some citrus. Pretty biscuity with a nice, almost spicy hop aroma.

Taste is bready and piney up front with a slight citrus undertone that goes into a slightly astringent middle before ending on a malty pine finish with hints of something....a bit off in the finish, not sure what it is, as it is really subtle.

Lighter body with medium carbonation work well.

I quite like this pale ale actually, really nice, dry, and piney for the abv.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Quarter inch retention that fades in 30 seconds. No lacing to speak of. Pale golden color, moderate clarity. Pretty weak looking.

S- Floral hoppiness with light citrusy touches. Hop oil smell that is somewhat acrid. Not very good.

T- The hop oil is strong, it's not even bitter so much as acidic.

M- Medium bodied, smooth.

O- This is a doozy. Not in a good way. Avoid this badboy.

4/5  rDev +13.3%

A clear lightish orange golden with a white head that quickly escapes, leaving its remnants around the edge. Bubbles keep coming to the surface. A refreshing aroma of grapefruit and malt mixed with some lemon and grass. Very nice. A sweet, citric flavor to this, very little bitterness at all. Nothing fancy or complex but very nice and enjoyable. Thinner body to this, crisp, with some nice activity from the carbonation. A great sessionable beer here, ideal for the upcoming warm sunny spring and summer days and evening. I will definitely enjoy sitting back throwing a few of these back. Only bought a single this time but will definitely pick up a sixer of this.

Thoroughly impressed with this delicious session beer. Pours a honey golden with a slight haze. Big white finger and a half head after a vigorous pour. Strong citrus hop aroma with a nice grassy/lemongrass aroma weaved in. Slight metallic taste lies beneath it all but it's a really good arm-bender. I may be seeking this out in the summer.

A: The beer is clear light copper in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high head that quickly died down leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. It also left a bit of lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of citrus hops in the nose along with some hints of pine resin.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has a good amount of grapefruit flavors from the hops but is only accompanied by a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a bit of crispness. It has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this beer because the relatively light-bodied nature made it easy drinking and it had all of the hop aromas and flavors that you would expect from a West Coast IPA but without the alcohol and bitterness.

Strong aroma is quite hoppy and piney, with a hint of citrus, more like an IPA than a "regular" pale ale. It pours a typical but still appealing clear amber with a decent off-white head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy with a malty undertone and hints of caramel and sour citrus. Texture is smooth and somewhat fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy tingle. You can just about taste the wilderness.

A-Pours pale but not extra pale. The body of the beer is a very light orange hue. Body is also transparent. Head is minimal and quite white. Head leaves decent lacing however.

S-I find the nose to be quite attractive. Nose is predominantly citrus rind hops. Floral hops are noticeable as well. Almost has a sort of green vegetal aroma as well. Pale malts, and some sweet and lightly bready notes as well. I enjoy the nose.

T-The flavor falters a bit but is still more enjoyable than expected. Flavor is akin to the nose but not as hop forward. Still, the balance and individuality of the hop bouquet make this beer an easy-sipping winner in my book.

M-The feel is super-light with plentiful amounts of bubbles the zap the tongue. A light bitterness wraps up and overall pleasant feel and flavor.

O/D-Overall, I enjoyed this one. I am quickly finding an appreciation for APAs (even the mellow ones). I enjoy the hop flavors here and the balance is nice. Not mind-boggling, but flavorful enough to keep this glass in-hand.
