3.54/5 rDev -1.7%
Served in tulip shaped glass
A: light orange, amber with a thin white head.
S: citric, hoppy with a hint of sugary caramel
The taste is hoppy citric on the front end and piney towards the middle. The aftertaste reminds me of a lager style beer, not my favorite.
The mouthfeel is very thin with very little carbonation
Overall, this is a very light beer in my opinion. This is a perfect morning beer and would work great as a session beer. I am not to crazy about this one. I wouldn't describe this an an American Pale Ale. The hops are hiding in this one and are not cutting through like it should.

Poured into a standard pint glass a dull lighter orange color with a thin white layered head atop.Aromas are light with some biscuit malt and earthy/leafy hops,seems more English in style to me.Flavors of light earthy and leafy hops mixed with lightly sweet biscuit malt,it's on the dryer side.To me this is not American on the palate it's slightly beefed up English in nature.Pretty average.A 33 IBU APA...not really.

Pours with a medium white head that settles into a nice lacing above a clear honey golden colored beer.
Light citrus hops aroma with a touch of pine combines well with a light sweet caramel maltiness.
Light sweet caramel malt with a light bitter citrus hops taste.
A light dry citrusy aftertaste on this medium bodied beer.
A very solid yet light tasting beer, well worth picking up a few of these.

A: Clear golden orange beer with a big white head. Lace forms in wavy sheets that transform into patchy spots. Good retention.
S: Aroma is sweet, clean, crisp, and fruity. Peach, a touch of cantaloupe, faint lemon, and diacetyl, over a light bed of grains.
T: The fresh graininess is upfront in the flavor, followed by pine, soft lemon, grapefruit, and zesty spice. Nicely balanced, pleasant, and refreshing. This is a good representation of an APA.
M: Dry, prickly carbonation, softly slick, with lingering hop bitterness through the finish. Good texture and light-medium body.
O: This beer has good definition, its fresh, and nicely balanced. This would be a delightful session beer.

Attractive deep clear golden, with a rich and foamy head. Superb lattice-style lace, too.
Nose is floral hops, but mild and subtle, rather than overwhelming.
Taste is typical American pale ale -- malty up front, followed by a rush of bitter citrus hops at the finish.
Sturdy and enjoyable!

Bottle: Poured a light orange color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of medium citrus hops with light dry caramel malt notes. Taste is a mix between some light citrus notes with medium level of bitterness originating from the hops with some dry caramel malt presence can also be felt. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Well brewed with nice level of hops presence and not too much malt to distract from the hops.

Pours a slightly hazed pale orange color topped with a small head that comes to rest as a creamy sheet. Soft grapefruit, peach, and flowers over lightly toasted cereal malt in the nose. Mild citrus hops, a bit of pine, tea, and a balancing dose of fresh grain. Classic APA flavor, not over the top. Medium bodied, crisp, and only slightly bitter. Ah, I could drink quite a few of these given the chance. Glad I got the opportunity to pick this up while in TN.

A solid APA - nice bright malt in a mid-amber range, with very fresh citric Cascades hops notes - grapefruit and a touch of floral in the background. At 5.3 abv, this lands well in the session beer realm. Overall, a well done beer that hits all the marks.
