4.13/5  rDev +3.3%

On-tap at Vineyard 55, Bluffton, SC

A: The beer is relatively clear light amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin layer of bubbles across the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of tropical fruits and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of tangerines and tropical fruits. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a very easy drinking and flavorful pale ale. It has the flavor profile of a good IPA but Isn't nearly as bitter.

A: Poured from a growler to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a hazy texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A pretty good aroma of hops, malt, and a little citrus.

T: Tasted of hops (more than you expect from an APA), some malt, pine, and citrus. Though it won't win awards for originality, this beer has a well-rounded flavor and is easy to drink.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, tasty beer. Very much drinkable.

Not sure of abv

Poured a wonderful honey orangish hue that boasts a huge fluffy snow white head that left sheets of lacing down glass.

VERY Bright hop citrus goodness with a solid piney base. Wonderful aromas with a creamsicle citrus goodness.A touch of light toasty malt lingering in the back.

The taste absolutely follows the nose, with nice BIG hop presence and a very citrus type lime and grapefruit goodness. A touch of toasty malt supports.

A medium mouth feel on a wonderful brew.

This roughneck yells seek and drink as I will hunt this out and consume mass quantities.

4.18/5  rDev +4.5%

A - slight haze, nice golden hue, white head with decent lacing.

S - piney, grapefruit, mild malt, clean, no off notes

T - grapefruit, somewhat one dimensional

M - declent body, slight tartness stemming from the predominant grapefruit notes

O - overall a decent APA but needs a little something else in there to keep me coming back.
