MaltOne (253) - 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 donít know but the water may play a part in this - never considered that before.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/23/15] Can on Alaska Air flight from San Diego to Portland. Clear deep golden to amber color with an off-white head. Pleasant aroma of citric and tropical fruity hops and mild biscuit malt. Flavor has some sweetish malt, somewhat biscuity, fruity hops and a mild to moderate bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Nice and easy-going.

I got this on an airplane, a mile high tick and a pretty OK APA. Itís orange w/ a foamy head. The nose is pretty mild but the hop character is fresh and fruity--getting a lot of pine needles and peach especially. This isnít sweet but still pretty full bodied though vigorous carbonation keeps things light and creamy. This isnít especially flavorful but itís easy drinking and well-balanced.

Had it in the bottle. So can't really judge aroma or appearance. However it had a clean crisp taste for an ipa. Wasn't as hoppy as I prefer tho. Overall not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoy by 01.22.14. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.28.14. A: Cloudy orange. 1 finger head. S: Grapefruit. Flower. Citrus. T: Grapefruit, malt. Pine on back end. M: Crisp. O: This one is in the middle of the pack as far as hop intensity for APAs. Itís not super hop forward, nor does it have a 1:1 balance of hops and malt like older APAs. Itís a little hop forward with good balance from the malt.

Braudog (5949) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle. Standard-looking amber beer with great head retention. Meaty and malty up front, just a basic ale balance. Quite heavy feeling for a session beer. (#5915, 1/10/2015)

5.3%. From a bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small head, well carbonated, not much aroma, medium hop fruit flavours. Good stuff.
