Slightly milder than standard pale ale but a good choice if there aren't other options. Decent taste just a tad lighter tasting pale ale.

Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. Last three numbers on code on back label say 280, so bottled on the 280th day of the year apparently.

A- Pours a clean medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing slides quickly down the glass.

S- Herbal, earthy hop aroma is just powerful enough to get your attention. Solid malt backing with a hint of caramel.

T- Pretty standard balance of malt to hops. Bitterness is mild and the hop flavor once again earthy. Slight soapy aftertaste isn't sitting well with me.

M- Small bite from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- I would have this again if my other options were limited, but certainly wouldn't seek it out. Their Freedom IPA is so much better.

Pours a golden color with very little head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is of hops and some malt, focusing on hay and grass aromas. A touch of barnyard odor also, if you know what I mean. Taste is ok, hops are decent and the malt is slightly too much. Hops and malt sweetness battle it out in this beer and I am not sure who is winning. Mouthfeel is good with a decent amount of carbonation(could have used a touch more). Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a hint of a metallic flavor.
