on tap at Revolution in Charlotte, NC. pours a rich amber color with a single finger of white head that has good retention and leaves minimal lacings.
aroma is of piney hops and caramel malts, little else. fresh in the nose with an inticing aura.
taste is more of the same with a light spice from the rye, along with a finish of residual hops and a bit of bitterness.
mouthfeel is medium bodied and mildly crisp on the palate with a solid hop presence and an aftertaste of little more than some piney hops. nicely composed.
drinkability is good. mellow and easy drinking and a great hop quality without ending up too bitter. the malts work well with the hops, producing a brew so balanced it could be compared to an ESB. cheers!
Serving type: on-tap

Pours copper orange with some creamy head and good lacing.
Smells sweet, soapy and floral with some tropical fruit coming through.
Tropical fruit, peach and citrus up front, with some rye spice following close behind. Pretty full body for the style and more sweetness than is typical in an APA. This is my last bottle of the sixer and I've also noted some bitter, metallic off-notes at times. Sort of coppery. But for the most part it's just pleasantly juicy and hoppy, although a bit big in body to have more than one or two of.

A: Apricot in color, hazy with a few floaties, off white head on top that collapses fairly quickly.
S: Grapefruit coes out first with a nice bread note following. Some orange peel, as well as a little bit of a biscuit note.
T: Hoppy, but not overly bitter. Orange, grapefruit, and lemon balm come out first. The hops are followed by a light bread taste, and the beer finishes out with the bitterness.
M: Medium light body with plenty of carbonation. There is a slight oily feel in the lingering bitterness.
O: Overall a rather lovely pale ale. Good and reliable, this could be a new go to summer bbq pale ale.
