IndianaRed (2501) - 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 (8237) - 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.

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 (13693) - 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

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 (1289) - 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

StefanSD (2149) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 6, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a murky amber-copper color with a medium white head that slowly recedes to a splotchy film. The aroma is kinda nice with grapefruit, oranges and a bit of sweet malts. The taste is a good bready malt base nicely accentuated by light citrus hops. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bready malts. Overall: Not stellar, but decent and tasty.

Tap - fair size foamy head, nice medium amber color, citrus & pine hops aroma and flavor, fairly good malt balance - pretty good overall

Btl pours clear golden copper color with a fluffy white head that lingers for a while leaving good lace on glass. Smells of sweet oranges, pine and grapefruit. Taste of light sweet malt and grapefruit. Light body, sticky texture,lively carbonation with nice bitterness. Good, drinkable session pale ale.
