3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - cloudy gold with a small head. Has a piney hop aroma and some orange zest on the taste. The body seems a little thin but itís definitely refreshing. One of the better Alaskan beers in my opinion.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma is primarily citrus from the Citra, but also has some piney notes. Flavor has a nice malt base with a good blend of hops. Medium bodied with light astringency. Overall a very solid APA.

Pours a golden-coppper with smallish head. Aroma of floral hops. Flavor a bit on the tangy side, favoring the bitter pine flavor of the hops, with some malt sweetness underneath. Light, clean mouthfeel and bitter finish aftertaste. Not bad.

Well now, I was originally rating this beer as an IPA. Hops are of the battering variety mostly but itís pretty tasty.

Somewhat hazy golden copper pour. Medium stone white head with lots of lacing. Aroma is piney, juniper, and some citrus. Pretty light flavor. Hop characteristics mirror the aroma. Refreshing but not amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a well-retained, sticky whitish head.. quite a bit of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up earth and orangey hops over soft pale and bready notes.. a hint of metallic character on the back of the nose. The flavor found sweet caramel and bready malts at the core, with pine resin, black pepper, and orange zesty bitterness around.. tangy and bitter on the long, mostly citrusy finish. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated.. a tad sharp at times, but otherwise tasty and very drinkable.

Signs of unfilteredness decorate a dirty golden-colored beer with a frothy, off-white head. This really has a great, fresh, hop-forward aroma with noticeable, but light, caramel malts. Pine and light citrus define a delicious hop bouquet thatís modestly.bold in the nose. Itís so fruity in the mouth that it almost reminds me of a tropical fruit punch. It really is delicious for an APA, and its fruity character makes this seem a slightly out of the norm. Still, on the better end of the spectrum for the style in my opinion.
Itís clean, fresh, and refreshing, much like a watered-down Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, softer and lighter, but still packing a tasty hop flavor with an earthy, slightly caramel flavor and a strong finish of fresh hay. This beer is perfect for working outdoors in the Texas summer heat.
