Just didn’t get much nose on this one. Faint citrus and pine. Taste was mellow and had some decent hops back bone. Finish does of fairly quick.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
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. It’s not super hop forward, nor does it have a 1:1 balance of hops and malt like older APAs. It’s a little hop forward with good balance from the malt.

Braudog (5932) - 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)

furthur (278) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, Amber beer, little head oddly. Aroma is spruce and lychee and orange. Taste is orangey grapefruity juicy spruce. Palate light, carbonation moderate. Finish is slightly bitter. Super refreshing!

beerbaaron (1412) - Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Clear light amber with a frothy white head. Light, somewhat watery body, so also quite drinkable. Smooth. mild bitterness. Very tasty and pleasant. This is a session ale.

loubar (114) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Aroma is floral and hoppy with some yeast. Distinctive floral, light pine and grapefruit hop flavors are moderated with a caramel, bready malt base. Very well balanced with a lingering bitterness that is not over powering. A smooth, refreshing and drinkable brew. Well crafted...
