6 pk of cans bought in Ingles Shelby NC. Pours nice deep amber golden color. Nice aroma of hops to come. Slightly watery on the moth feel - could probably beef up by adding some carapils malt to the kettle. A nice balance of hop flavor and malt, not overbearing. A clean tasting brew with a fleeting taste of malt on the end. Definitely very drinkable and will always have a place in my fridge

On tap at Stone Ridge Tavern in Asheville, NC. Cloudy deep gold color, with off-white head. Initial impression is malty, but it finishes with a nice hop bite. Medium mouthfeel. All in all, a tasty but not remarkable APA.
