Had this beer apart of a sampler flight at the brewery.

A: Amber/Red in color. Pours a medium to heavy white/creamy head.
S: Sweet caramel with some earthiness to it.
T: Some caramel, slight citrus flavor. Malty but not overpowering.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Chrisp, average carbonation.

Good flavor but nothing separating it from your normal Red Ale, however, it was still an enjoyable beer.

Brought home a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans directly from Nashville.
Reddish amber color, with a slightly off white head. Good retention, thin lace strings.
Smell of sweet caramel malt, some earthy/leafy hopiness.
Taste starts with the same caramel sweetness, some slight pine flavor but not overly hoppy. Malt base, but not overpowering sweetness.
Medium mouth feel, crisp, average carbonation.
Good flavor, enjoyable, drinkable. Pretty average Red Ale.

On tap.
I admit I am a bit of a hop head. That said...
Pours a nice clear copper with almost no head.
Smells of floural hoppiness and some malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel is pretty smooth. Not overly carbonated. Sufficient thickness to prevent a watery feel, but not thick or syrupy.
Flavor is pretty hop forward with some citrus/floral hops. No pine.
Crisp dry finish is not overly bitter.
Makes you want another drink.
A very good example of an APA. One of the better I have had lately.
