Service Brwing Co. Ground Pounder Pale Ale

I have grown a like to pale ales over a few years. They are a nice balance between hoppy and malted sweet flavors. But pale ales sometime are overshadowed by IPAs and they big popularity. Service Brewing Co. out of Savanna Georgia, named for Military service, brews Ground Pounder Pale Ale, 4.6% ABV. Ground Pounder takes it name from the oldest part of the military. Ground Pounder pours a deep orange color with a two and half finger white head that leaves decent lacing behind. There are nice amounts of light coming through with good carbonation.  The aroma is big with citrus orange and some earthy notes. This beer has a smell like both an IPA and Pale Ale in my opinion. Ground Pounder has nice big orange flavor up front with a bit of a little earthy pine and malted flavor in the middle with a hoppy bite towards the end. The mouth feel is medium with a nice hoppy finish and a hop orange after taste that lingers for just a moment of enjoyment then fades before your next sip. I thought this beer was good but it could have been just a little bit better, so this Ground Pounder pale ale is a B. The finish was just a little hoppy for what I like, but the rest was good. If you like a nice pale ale then Service Brewing Co. Ground Pounder Pale Ale should be tried. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
