Poured from tap into pint at the brewpub in Radford, Virginia. Nice golden orange with thick creamy head. Fruity sweet and piney hop...some citrus notes with a malt backbone. taste is fruity hop...subtle pine hop and great malt balance. Easy drinker just lots of flavor. Overall, great APA with tons of flavor.

Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Beer pours a clear amber color with a layer of off white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild overall. I'm getting a good amount of malt with a touch of citrus hops. There is a fruity undertone as well.

Taste: There is a bready malt backbone to this beer, but it's not particularly sweet. Citrus peel hops show up as well. Nice balance with a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly, foamy carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I thought this was an easy to drink pale ale. The layers of flavor work well together to keep the drinker interested.

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad.

The beer is dark golden hued with a small white head. Aromas of hops, light pine and floral notes. Some dank hops in the flavor with just a hint of oddness in the finish. Light to medium bodied with light bitterness in the finish. Overall, this was ok.
