The folks at the brewery (thanks, Chris) told me this is a seasonal right now, but if it gets more hype and people keep drinking it, it may become a year-round brew.

Appearance: A copper amber color with nice soapy lacing rimming the imperial pint glass, good head retention throughout, a lot of carbonation shooting toward the top of the glass.

Smell: A nice balance between husk and earthy notes, fruit and berries, some sour cherries, and some citrus tones from the hops.

Taste: I would've guessed this was more than 4.0% ABV, but alas, it's not. I could see this being a monster imperial pale ale, as the flavors here are extremely balanced, with the fruit and citrus dominating, and the earthy husk notes giving a nice backbone, all with a nicely lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Lighter-bodied even though the color's darker, but still remains crisp and not too carbonated, which I was worried about at first from the appearance.

Drinkability: Highly sessionable, with the flavors balanced, the alcohol fairly low, and the flavors better as they warm. I could probably drink this stuff all day, but unfortunately I don't live in Savannah. Try it if you get the chance. It won't blow your mind, but it's a very solid brew, and once I could drink a lot of. (1,275 characters)

Poured into a Moon River Mug.

Poured a hazy orange-amber with a thin white haze. Nice, crisp aromas of pungent hops : pineapple, pine resin, and grapefruit. Very clean and dank smelling. Taste follows the nose nicely, the hop profile is fresh and pungent, with more pineapple and grapefruit. Crisp and sessionable with a medium-thin mouth-feel and sharp carbonation. Overall a solid APA, I'm upset I've been missing out on it all this time! (441 characters)

From the menu: "Copper colored with a mild hop"

Lightly hazy; dark gold color. Nice Belgian lace on the sides of the glass

Nice floral aroma

Strong, raw hop plug flavor up front. This grows stronger at the swallow and leaves a long aftertaste. The body is rich. One of the better APA's I've had--good enough to order a pint after I completed the tasting. (357 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: clear orange in color. 2" fluffy head lasts a while. Some moderate lacing paints the glass during the session.

Smell: floral bitterness and orange citrus comes through the glass easily.

Taste: caramel, floral hops, orange slices, and a bit of fruit sweetness make a nice sessionable pale ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp throughout. Very short aftertaste.

Drinkability: great session pale ale here. Another one of those nice plastic cups beers for walking around town with. (501 characters)
