Had on tap at gastro pub in Charlotte, November 2017

Delicious, new era Pale Ale; fruity, well balanced, slightly hoppy; would call this a cousin of creature comforts Automatic- worth seeking out, would love to have again!

Crowler filled 12/29/16

Hazy glowing orange with a sticky, soapy white head. Light hoppy aromas of grape and stone fruit over a nice bed a biscuit malts. Mild, balanced flavor...soft peachy pine, tea, and floral hops with a solid base of grain. Pretty light with low carbonation. A pale ale that isn't trying to be anything else...I like it.

Pours a golden copper with not much head, but plenty of lacing. Smells of pine with some hops, and tastes similar. Very well balanced, there are hops, pine, and malt all present. It has a medium body with medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Came in a standard pint a dull light to medium golden with a thinner white head atop.Some nice floral and citric notes in the nose,very fresh smelling.Hoppy fruitiness on the palate but not bitter just deep ripe tropical fruits,mild caramel/biscuit sweetness underneath.Alot of nice things packed into this "smaller"APA,well made.

Super solid Pale ale from the best place putting them out in Charlotte now.

This version a tropical fruit bomb. Slightly hazy, sweet on the tongue with perfect bitterness. Really easy drinker.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

Pours is slightly hazy, yellow-gold in color, and topped with a good head that leaves patterned lacing.

The aroma is not strong but is dominated by hops. Suggestions of citrus and soft ripe fruits.

Flavor: moderately strong. Hoppy with near medium (for style) bitterness.

Medium-light body; medium carbonation.

From pint glass at the brewery.

A great, well-balanced pale, bordering on IPA status as far as bitterness is concerned. Overall, I was impressed with this one.
