Pale golden pour. The nose is fruity and citrusy with grapefruit and a touch of soft spice. Dry, but perceptible malt flavour rounding out the back of the palate. A little bit of moderate clean bitterness and some lingering spice. Crackery and delicious. A great APA

Draft at Commercial Taphouse. Poured an almost clear golden yellow orange. Big nose of citic hop. Slight biscuit malt backbone followed by a shot of grapefruit and pineapple citrus, balancing bitterness. Really we’ll done, teetering into IPA territory.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
On tap at Beer Republic during SF Beer Week, what a week! Pours copper with gold edges and near white head. The aroma has modest levels of spicy hops, a touch of citrus and then some floral at the aromatic periphery. The taste is nice and crisp and fresh with spicy hops and then it gets sort of floral with bittering floral hops and then a light amount of floral flavor hops. Yummers.
