Sample at brewfest. Nice APA actually, surprised by that. Good hoppiness to it, very clean and not at all stale tasting. Very solid.

scooterbub (849) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 13, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours an unclear gold with a large off white head. Taste is of hops, pine, citrus, resin, grapefruit and some malt. Similar pine and citrus aroma. Has a decent, light body that is bitter in the end. Enjoyable and easy to drink, but kind of one note.

mbgrayson (550) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pours a golden color, with lots of white head. Aroma of grass and hops. Taste is hoppy, with a long lasting palate. Iím not a big fan of this style, but this is still quite drinkable. Thumbs up.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, slightly dark orange appearance with a cream colored head and nice lacing. Slightly floral/herbal, citrusy, grapefruity, a bit toasty malty aroma. Cracker, biscuity malty, bitter, orange citrusy, herbal hoppy flavor with a fair amount of bitterness on the finish. Overall ok.

backdaft (227) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Bottle. Hazy copper pour with a foamy white head. Wonderful tropical, floral citrus hop aroma. Taste is similar with a biscuity malt presence to round things out. Medium bodied & well balanced. Finishes crisp, clean, and dry. Very Nice!

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2013
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear copper and amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates to a white ring and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of Cascade and Citra hops, a hint of caramel malt and some grapefruit zest. Taste is medium bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of light citrus hops, caramel, dried apricots and light spice. Finish is balanced with a hint of dry hop presence. Aroma is more distinct than its flavor.

alexanderj (3331) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle; poured a fairly vibrant orange color with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus and cascade; NW hops. Earth and fruit. Aroma more boisterous than the flavor, which was more mild and had more of a bread backbone.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2013
bottle pours orange amber with sustaining finger of off white froth. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, orange, apricot, white cake. Flavor is a first citrusy hops with a cake-like / biscuit malt finish, ending balanced. Bitterness is on the front end. Medium bodied. Overall a nice, balanced APA, pretty much exemplifies what the style should be.

The aroma is a strong citrus scent, the flavor is decent but itís all way too toned down, citrus notes are the most prevalent, after that I get a very light caramelly malty flavor. Not a bad beer by any means but average. Worth putting in a build your own 6er.
