I'm trying this at my Bestie's in Charlotte. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of tangerine peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

Pale orange, hazy beer with a finger and a half of fluffy white head that leaves bands of lacing. The aroma is orange and floral components with some bitter pine. There taste is more bitter than sweet and has some citrus and sweet malt followed by a biting bitterness. Pretty nice pale ale.

Can dated 11/2016:
Pretty much a straight up solid pale ale.

Pours a very hazy yellow, almost like a Hefe, with a slight lean towards orange tint. The head doesn't give up the con, large white foam sticks and laces.

Nose is floral with a little wet grain and pineapple, with a hint of citrus.

Flavor is a little muddled up front, generating almost a fruity cereal flavor. The tropical citrus notes come out of it in the end, pineapple and grapefruit. Bitterness is nice for a pale ale - enough but not overwhelming, though it builds. Soft, light carbonation on a medium body.

Aroma - ice citrus aroma, pineapple, mango, passion fruit. A bit of cracker slightly floral

Taste - Very similar to the aroma, lots of citrus, grapefruit, orange and passionfruit. Nice hop flavor as well.

Overall - A really well done plae ale, great flavors and very smooth.

My go-to session beer whenever I'm back in the 843. Crushable, hoppy, crisp and everything in between. Not super balanced but the high carb and lingering hop bite are on attack mode throughout the can. Great pale ale and a solid value at $12/6-pack.

Draft pint at the brewery.
Hazy golden orange, visible carbonation. Compact head of foam, random arcs of lacing in the glass. Bitter orange and grapefruit peel in the aroma and taste, balanced pale malt presence and a moderate hop bitterness. Light enough, on the verge of medium bodied. Overall a nice standard session APA, well made with no flaws.

A 12oz can with a canned on date of 2.10.16, picked up at Total Wine Columbia on a road trip through town on Easter Sunday

L - Hazy orange, no clarity, 2 fingers of creamy head, and lace left all over the top of the brew and side of the glass. Gorgeous

S - Big citrus aroma.

T - Big orange citrus flavor, nice wheat malt balance. This is a GOOD pale ale. So tasty, unlike a lot of pales

F - Medium body, crisp, high carbonation. Smooth

O - I'm blown away by a Pale Ale. Thats hard to do. Well done. This would be a go-to in my arsenal if I could get my hands on it in Atlanta

12 can, dated Feb. 2016, served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours cloudy, pale apricot with a very good head that leaves ample lacing.

Fruity-hoppy aroma and flavor.
The flavor carries a faint fruity tartness, mild-medium bitterness, and a strong hop level for style.

Medium body with very well-set carbonation. Crisp and some dryness in the finish.
