Little bit darker beer than I typically like very happy good lacing some citrusy notes but not too overpowering the happiness overtakes just about everything though if you like that good for you

Really enjoyed this pale ale. It’s everything you’d expect, moderate hops. Clean finish, overall a great beer!

On tap in Greenville SC.

Pour is clear amber with a large, foamy off-white head that is durable and leaves sheets of lacing.
Aroma: fruity, herbal and piney hops.

Flavor: moderate-mild bitterness. Mosaic hops? Subtle bready grains in the background.

Overall: a clean and crisp, mainstream APA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nice hazy golden color with an off white head that settles into a sparse cap but with nice webby lacing.

The aroma is bready, touch of honey. The hops are not distinct, slightly fruity.

The taste is of a grassy and pine hop. Some onion. Big bready malt.

The feel is moderate with fizzy carbonation. Sweet on the palate to start but finishes quite bitter. Bit chalky in the finish.

A hop forward APA. A bit dank and heavy for my liking.

Good, not great. Nothing on the nose but the grain bill, but the hops are more than obvious on the taste and feel...oxymorhopit?

Very good APA. Poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass. Big frothy head, with excellent retention. Thick rings of frothy lacing. Aroma and taste are mild hops and bready malt with a little lemon. Taste is nicely balanced between bready malt and mild citrus hops. Tasty and understated. Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly bitter and rich. A good Pale Ale, not trying to be an IPA hop bomb.

The medium yellow tap pour has 1 cm of foam and a very flowery, bright hop aroma. The body is light but fully flavored. Lemony hop notes and a clean finish would make this a weekly quaff if I was near the brewer's locale.
