A: Golden amber, cloudy, its a gusher with 5 fingers of off white head, great retention and some random chunky lacing. A little visible carbonation.

S: Malt, caramel, grapefruit, candy, floral, daisies. Light red chilly heat.

T: Sweet with floral quality, daisies, honey, light dull hopping on the end A little grapefruit candy.

M: Medium slightly syrupy body, little light bubbled carbonation.

O: Well done. Bought in Asheville, NC, drank in Kunming China Sept 8th, 2014. I really am enjoying this kind of APA on a hot Mid Autumn Festival’s night. Full moon, hot weather, family holiday. Especially nice with the weather.

From variety case, best buy dated 9/14

This was a pretty good pale ale. Nice and orangey/citrusy with a full mouthfeel. The finish was a bit
lacking, but overall drinkable/serviceable and would have again. Decent APA...

This is a very nice pale ale, referred to as a "strong pale ale" by the brewery. It has a very assertive hop aroma on the nose, and a solid, well propotioned malt bill to balance out the beer.

I would definitely have this beer again, and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a nice hop-forward beer. Enjoy.
