On tap at the Pour Taphouse in Asheville.

Pours with a orange-amber body topped with a sudsy semi-durable, off-white head that leaves good lacing

Aroma: appealing and fruity with some faint malts showing through the hops.

Flavor: dominated by fruity hops but nicely balanced; appealing tropical fruit notes. Moderately bitter by the finish.

Feel: the body is near medium and has good, medium+ carbonation.

O: very drinkable and relatively fruity version of the style.

Can > Tulip Glass

A - Clear gold with a nice two finger fluffy white head with some little lacing.
S - Clean and crisp, light grain, pale malt, fresh grass, orange, grapefruit, light pine, nice floral notes.
T - Bright and vibrant floral notes with some light citrus, mild hop bitterness, orange juice, some grapefruit, crackery pale malt, very clean and refreshing!
M - Crisp, on the lighter side in feel, but this is what you want for an APA.
O - Fantastic APA, easily drinkable, low ABV, big on flavor, clean and light, delicious.

An extremely good Pale Ale. What I tried was a limited batch of 10 gallons and they are going to brew a full batch next time. I'll be back for more.

Oured aggressively this clear orange beer has a two finger dense, sticky head that leaves nice bands of lacing. It smells floral and sweet with some grain and orange citrus notes. Tastes sweet and grainy with flowers and citrus. There is a nice bitterness at the end that is is pithy grapefruit and floral. This is a really nice APA.

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium to dark honey orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and moderate golden yellow + copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit and resin/pine hops over the top of cereal grain malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of cereal grain and caramel malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/grapefruit pith, and resin/pine hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A very enjoyable and easy to drink APA with a nice hop profile - resin and citrus. Definitely worth grabbing.
