UPDATED: DEC 10, 2010 A hazy golden pour with medium white head. The aroma is a mixture of grassy and citrus hops. The taste has a medium body is soft and begins with a sweet orange flavor. The taste grows in bitterness until it reaches a dry finish. This beer goes down fast.

Bottle. Very nice peach/apricot malt aroma with slight hops. Hazy orange amber with moderate head. Pronounced malt flavor for an APA expertly blended with the piney hops. I really enjoy this beer due to it having a much stronger malt flavor than the average APA. Good stuff.

Barley Island makes some of the best looking/smelling beers I have ever encountered. Luckily they usually taste good as well. This beer is no exception. Very dry and hoppy with a twinge of a sour aftertaste. Good stuff.

Pour is a cloudy brown with a average white head. Aroma is a nice mix of earthy hops and dark malts. Also has a rye aroma to it. Flavor is decent as well. Very much citrus hops with some butterscotch and dark fruit. Never heard of this brewer before but this is pretty darn good.

A good fruity drink with a mild hoppiness throughout. Pours orange and cloudy with a medium creamy head. A short lived tart aftertaste follows as you progress thru your drink. No punches here, its a decent brew.

They must have really reworked this one since BBBMike last had it! Very hoppy nose from a nice light amber color. Malty at first sip, medium body. I went back for a few more smaples to make sure that I was really tasting a wonderfully balanced pale with loads of caramel and even some fruity pale malt hints. Hoppy presence at finish is quite enjoyable. Long tasty finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(22oz bottle) Hazy light amber body topped by medium light beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, strong pine, some lemon, orange. Taste is medium sweet, pine, some lemon, light melon, mint. Clean and watery light-medium body. Very drinkable, and with its relatively low ABV and well-rounded bitterness, this would make a nice session beer.
