16 ounce pint - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Arrived at the table a light copper body with a good, filtered clarity and sporting a thin, somewhat fizzy-looking, white head. Very thin lacing on the way down.
Smell: Not a particularly potent nose, but notes of mildly bready malts, dried leaves, and lemon peels are present. Also, a bit of additional fruitiness perks up as it begins to warm, though, like the other scents, it's a tad light.
Taste: Light bready malt character and hint of grain with a small amount of caramel candy sweetness. Leafy, citrusy hops with a touch of lemon oil. Medium bitterness. The tastes of leaves and lemon dominate the latter half. Finishes dry, relatively crisp, and clean with just a bit of lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: A very simple, though light and easily drinkable beer that would pair with a wide range of food due to it's relative lightness -- let's just leave it at that.
Serving type: on-tap

Pint glass on tap at the New Orleans Hilton Airport.
Hazy golden colour with a thin white head leaving lacing down the sides.
Piney herbal hops in the nose.
Same thing on the palate. Long lasting after taste.
A little thin and could use some malt backbone. Decent and worth a try

Pour from bottle into Kuhnhenn IPA glass:
A: Clear pour with healthy cap of foam that quickly fades to a thin layer.
S: Very nice for an APA. Lots of grapefruit and spice.
T: Hops, hops, hops. Pine and grapefruit with a bitter finish.
M: Heavy carbonation with a slight hop syrup finish.
O: The bouquet promises more than the flavor delivers, which is probably the main problem with this Pale Ale, which is quite drinkable. The finish is a little too bitter for the style.
