Had this on tap at the airport in Charleston. Poured a "roasted orange" color with a rocky, sticky off-white head that coats the glass nicely. Aromas are somewhat muted, with a good dose of earthy, grassy hops dominating. Flavor initially was nice on the ol' palate, but the finish is something else entirely. Good balance gives way to a strange aftertaste...very metallic and unpleasant. Bitter finish, combined with the metallic taste made this one rather difficult to finish. Mouthfeel is above average and well on the creamy side. Drinkability takes a hit as a result of the not-very-nice finishing taste. Pretty average in my book.

Serving type: on-tap

I see a half inch of white foam on the top of this beer and a nice golden hue. Brussels lacing. I get a nose of amber malt, barley, and pine like aroma hops. The body is fairly carbonated and somewhat salty and dry. I get an instant bit of gentle pine like hop bitterness very closely followed by a light and clean malt backbone.

12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a somewhat hazy, golden orange with 1 fingers width of white head. Head dissipates down fairly quickly to a thin film which remains throughout the drink and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Citrus rind, pine, dish soap, sweet malts, lemon/lime.

T: Sweet malts upfront with piney bitterness on the finish. Citrus rind.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the higher side, somewhat drying, good drinkability.

O: Solid American Pale from top to bottom. Not outstanding but well above average.
