22 oz bottle.
Looks good, with a deep, clear amber body topped by a large and durable off-white head. Patterned, sticky lacing gets left on the glass.
Aroma: I realize this is made with American hops, but the hoppy aroma is earthy and dank, suggesting European hops, albeit with a distinct fruity note.
Flavor: piney and grassy with faint citrus.
Feel: prickly medium carbonation with medium+ body.

Had this on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Hickory, pours an effervescent golden honey with a 1 finger of of ivory colored head. Above average lacing & average head retention

Herbal & piney hops, plus some biscuitty malt

Herbal & piney hops front and center along with biscuitty malt & caramel, Pineyness dominates as this warms along with a little lemon & dryness. Finishes crisp, slighlty sweet & with a touch pear. Perhaps a bit too hoppy for the style, but I still liked it

MF: Medium bodied, smooth carbonation & great balance

This drank so easy, a nice offering from these guys

Surprised to find at a convince store on tap in Birmingham Alabama. Love the malt and hop balance. True to pale ale style though with nice dry finish with out any pucker.
Hot day and is nice beer after cutting the grass.

On draft at Carolina Ale House, Charlotte, NC.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and very good lacing.

The smell featured a soft citrus hop and light caramel.

The taste tipped toward the hop side with a solid caramel malt supporting the spicy pine and citrus notes.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side if the style.

Overall a tasty hop driven pale ale.

Pours a copper/golden color with a small bar pour white head. Leaves some decent lace behind.

Aroma is light caramel malts with light fruity hop notes.

Taste is caramel malts lightly toasted, with good fruity notes lots if pear Belgian like notes even though is it a Belgian IPA kind of has that kick to it. Hops are fruity then lots of lingering herbal notes, decent hop kick for a pale ale.

Mouthfeel is light side of medium with medium level of CO2.

Overall not a bad tasting brew blind try on server recommend other wise probably of had it.

Appearance: orange in color with a short 1/4" head that falls to a spotty surface covering.

Smell: a light amount of orange and a hint of earthiness creates a mild aroma.

Taste: caramel, orange, and an earthy bitterness make up a mildly flavored pale ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp at the finish.

Overall: a so-so beer, nothing to overly excite you here. Just an easy to drink mild pale ale.
