MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Std appearance a light golden pour wit ha small loose white head. Aroma had a hint of lemon zest a touch of spruce tree. Avg palate. Clean crisp hop taste mostly light citrus and lemon zest and a hint of a spice I canít quite place. Overall a sessionable beer, good, but lacking any real substance that defines it uniquely. I could sit and sip this with most anything.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 28, 2013
On tap @ Barrelhouse 101. Orange pour with a white head. Nose is bread, orange peel, floral hops, and toast. Nice sweetness, and a touch of fruits. Flavor is quite sweet. Big toast and bread character. Slight herbal tang. Lots of orange, flowers, and a subtle pine note. Mild bitterness on the finish.

IndianaRed (2323) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a thin off-white head. Faint hoppy aroma and a mild malty flavor. Some bitterness at the end but not very interestingí

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Sample at the Willoughby PBCCP tasting on 11/17/2013: Murky pale amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

northropfrye (2140) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Iíll give this the benefit of the doubt and assume that I got an old bottle or bad batch because this was one of the worst APAs Iíve tried. Orange/amber body frothy white head. Looked nice enough, but the aroma is a faint mineral hops. Taste is only slightly bitter and quite mineral, like licking a pop can. Some slight sweetness. Overall not very good. Iíd like to rerate this with a fresh bottle.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2013
On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a lightly hazy dark golden body and a small, dense off-white head. The aroma has some caramel maltyness, but itís the hops that dominates. Pine cones and some citrus notes. Quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation, medium to full body. Thereís a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and towards the end. Pine cones and some hop pellets. Not bad at all, but itís somehow boring anyway. 131112

markducommun (168) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Marigold with a thin white head. Big, sweet, citrusy nose. Taste is pretty one dimensional, mix of piney and citrusy bitterness without malts balancing it out. Fairly thin bodied, clean and dry palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pours golden blond with a small bright white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, tangerines, with hay, biscuity malt, farm smell, nice. Lean body, some nice malt flavor, toffee, and good bitterness level; there are some pleasant hop qualities, but probably was not stored too well. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel, and a crisp finish
