MaltOne (231) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours copper-gold, white frothy head. Aroma is faint in general, - grapefruit citrus, with a shortbread undertone. Taste follows suit, with a nice warm, malt framework for a clean hop-bitter finish. It has a bit more substance to the mouthfeel than most APA. Not particularly complex, but the balance hits my preferences very well - clean, refreshing, with a lttle substance. I donít know but the water may play a part in this - never considered that before.

crossovert (7909) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2013
Great tropical citrus aroma. Flavor is malty, hint of butteriness, citrus, low bitterness, easy-dirnking.

TheHOFF43 (1759) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2013
Sample at brewfest. Nice APA actually, surprised by that. Good hoppiness to it, very clean and not at all stale tasting. Very solid.

scooterbub (871) - 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 (560) - 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 (9470) - 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.

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!
