2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I tried my best to get any aroma out of this beer to no avail. The most I could get was a bit of malt. The flavor is not bad, slightly bitter with a dry feel. A little thin going down. Just a bland beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ the Brewery-Brown pour w/a moderate white head. Some hop aroma. Had a bit of a hop bite, some malt, some caramel....not a whole lot going on here. Pretty boring actually, and as others have said, this is definatly not an APA, more like a brown ale or Amber.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not an APA but rather pleasant. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz can this beer poured a medium brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that faded and left some lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, molasses, somewhat vegetal malts and moderate notes of cherry, fruity hops and cola. The flavor was bitter and tart with cherry, molasses, caramel, pineapple, grapefruit, nut bread and cola elements blending nicely. Medium finish. Medium body. Interesting.
