Rating #1617 - CBC2015 Beer #2 - On tap in the Seattle Airport. Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet lemony, mild grassiness.Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a decent punch of Centennial bitterness. A decent APA.

Some light citrus and a lot of copper in this. Pours golden amber with great head and lacing. Light tangy finish. Really more like an English style pale. Tap at Alaska Lodge at SEATAC.

Tried this on tap at the Alaska Lodge (Sea-Tac Airport) . Great smooth flavor with just enough hops to give it a nice edge. Nice beer to kill 3 hours while waiting for my next flight.

rgf001 (277) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Bottle from Costco. Clear light amber with neat head that goes down at a normal rate. Med low aroma of citrus and tropical fruit hops with a low malt aroma. Taste also of malt and tropical fruit hops. Bitterness is too low, making the beer seem watery. Thin palate with no other sensations. Dry finish with no significant aftertaste.

Pours a clear, bright orange with minimal lace. Aroma is of fresh hops and vibrant citrus. Tastes of citrus with strong bitterness at the front end. Overall, this is a very solid, fresh APA.

jbruner (3550) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pours a chill hazed golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lace. Aroma of citrus hop notes and biscuit malt. Taste follows, clean and crisp, easy drinker. Really nice for what it is.

Nice Hoppy aroma, with slightly darker golden color. Excellent hops with subtle malt flavor. This is currently my #1 favorite drinking beer. (Not a fan of the term "session" beer, It makes beer drinking sound too structured - "my friends and I have scheduled a beer session for 2 weeks from Friday"....) Anyway, this is a great and very drinkable beer - can be a little hard to find in Colorado. One more reason to move to Alaska.
