MaltOne (301) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2013
Pours copper-gold, white frothy head. Aroma is faint in general, - grapefruit citrus, with a shortbread undertone. Taste follows suit, with a nice warm, malt framework for a clean hop-bitter finish. It has a bit more substance to the mouthfeel than most APA. Not particularly complex, but the balance hits my preferences very well - clean, refreshing, with a lttle substance. I don’t know but the water may play a part in this - never considered that before.

Bottle at Champs DTW. Hazy deep orange with a small off white head leaving sparse lace. Lots of citrus with a subdued caramel backing. Moderately bitter. Medium slick mouth with average carbonation and a long bitter finish.

drpimento (2883) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2016
It’s not bad - nothing to write home about, but not bad. Nice appearance with decent head and some lace. Aroma is malt and hops. Flavor’s similar to nose, sweet at first, then the hops, finishes with wet grain. Slight medicinal character there too.
