I drank this beer at the Augusta Bottoms Beer Festival I did not acquire the ABV while I was there and there was virtually no information bout their beers on the web site.

It had a great orange/brass colored body with a nice white head and lace. The aroma was very hoppy with a small amount of malt sweetness. The taste was good and complex. There were a lot of esters affiliated with hops, citrus floral and a fresh fruit vegetable taste but you could tell that some care went into preserving the other flavors as well. There was a mild sweetness that reduced the pucker factor and made this a refreshing beer. I enjoyed it a lot and if I ever make it to their brewery I would like to have it again.

I had a 4 oz taster of this earlier this evening at the Buckner Brewery (The only place you can get the beers). I have repeatedly forgotten to get an ABV for this beer (and their others).

Appearance: This beer was a bright, crisp amber with an almost greenish hue peeking from somewhere within the refraction. The lacing was beautiful with about two fingers of fresh, white suds.

Smell: Hoppy. There are a ton of floral notes here that are almost dominated by a citrusy backbone. Really fresh. This isn't surprising considering that I was drinking the beer 20 ft. from where it was made.

Taste: Wow! They packed a lot of hops into this one for a regular Pale Ale. This should be an IPA. Bright, crisp citrus dominates with floral undertones coming through. Almost like chrysanthemum.

Mouthfeel: Very light, The carbonation from the tap helps here and makes it a bit thicker than it actually is. The worst quality of this beer but still decent.
