ozarkspops (368) - - APR 22, 2013
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. ---Rated via iPhone

loubar (51) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Aroma is floral and hoppy with some yeast. The hops come through first here. But the distinctive floral, light pine and grapefruit flavors are offset nicely with a caramel, bready malt base that makes for a lingering bitterness that is not over powering. The result is a smooth, refreshing and drinkable brew. This style is getting more common out there. Nevertheless, well crafted...

Obfuscate (65) - Minneapolis, - NOV 18, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 These types of beers when done right, like this one is are really tasty. Hoppy, crisp, refreshing, session able. Solid beer if you like APA’s.

Christpuncher (1335) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Somewhat malty and hoppy start with a bitter hoppy finish. Not much aroma on this one. One of the first needs I have had from Alaskan. Pours orange with a thick tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slowrunner77 (6031) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2014
good combo of hops in here. not quite as much of them as I’d prefer as it’s a little too malt heavy, but a decent sessionable pale.
