3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-2-12-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The brew is served a deep golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave only a very light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is very light. There is a light bready aroma mixed with faint notes of a lemon, herbal and grassy smells.
Taste – It starts out with a biscuit taste mixed with a light lemon flavor. As the taste advances, some floral tastes and a light pine flavor come to the tongue. These flavors seem to be lost relatively fast however due to flavors of an earthy and grapefruit nature coming in. These flavors take the taste to the end and leave bitter-biscuity flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. A decent feel for the moderate hop and bready flavors of the brew.
Overall – It was a decent brew, although with the more bitter hop finish, the taste was slightly off at the end. Alright, but nothing I would really go for on any real occasion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance has a fairly clear burnt golden orange color body with a white one finger head. There was some light lacing that slid right on into the body.
The smell had some light floral with just a touch spicy with underlying tropical notes.
The taste was mild with a light bittersweet floral to spicy to grasp a light pine hovering over a some light toasty biscuit. There was a fairly decent lingering biscuit aftertaste that lead into a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light but also showed a decent aspect to make me think it could have sat at medium on the body. I’d say this was fairly sessionable and did have a decent carbonation to it.
Overall, in my opinion, this is a good APA worthy of having again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Nearly clear, burnt golden body with a stark-white head; super chunky & nearly still sitting on top, lasting forever with lots of chunky lacing left behind. Aroma is a little floral, just a touch spicy with underlying tropical notes. mild tangerine, maybe a bit of white grape, & a notable dankness throughout. Taste is mild, but follows the aroma closely. A touch of pine, a bigger white grape taste that almost grows towards tart/vinous at times, but is held in check with herbal & mildly earthy undertones. Lingering white grape in the finish with a touch of white pepper spice. Mild malt foundation all around, a hint of toasty biscuit. I love this hop; it seems more tame in this beer than most, but this is a pretty tasty & super easy-drinker as a result.

Vierte color amarillo oro, media capa de espuma que permanece una fina capa, aromas a malta, lúpulo, hierba y citronela, en boca entrada fuerte y con mucho amargor que se disipa al rato, cuerpo medio y carbónico ligero, cerveza compleja que deja un pos gusto largo y seco.
