3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Three fingers of head. Fairly clear, medium straw colored body.
Aroma is a pleasant pine, citrus and floral smell.
A strong bitter taste, pine mostly. A dry effect.
Crisp texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
A solid APA, strong on the bitterness.

huge lacing for a APA.. slightly hazy lite golden brew... surprising... lacing dries to a crusty bubble mess. :)
American C’s hops are front of the aroma... citrus and piney.. pretty warm at this point.. only a trace of malt aroma.
Good bitterness is braced by a balanced caramel sweetness... pine and citrus rind are known very well mid palate.. Lingering toasted malts and a touch of gun metal. Lower than expected body that does not diminish the overall quality.

Bottle from BevMo, Arden. The initial pour was all foam. Once it subsided, I discovered a cloudy pale color with a bready aroma. There is a thin pale malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish.

"pretty clean. maybe a little heavier in body and malt content than i prefer in an apa, but it’s well put together. sweet malt and spicy hops in about equal share."

Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22 at his house on the epic two man tasting day. Lovely weather, good bbq, good music, nice greenery. Good times. Copper gold with an almost white medium head. Aroma of malts and a little spice. Flavour is more malts and caramel, good malt flavours. Not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dusky amber with a persistent finger of light toasted cream foam. Smells faintly of amber malts and english hops. Tea character. Flavor is cardboard oxidation and some sweet malt. Some muted bitterness. Pretty severer oxidation. Medium bodied with moderate carb and off dry finish. I feel like this one is old, but it’s hard to tell sans date system....

Bottle, De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Hazy golden pour with a small white head. Flavour and nose was caramel malts, citrus hop and a touch of wood. Some building bitterness. Lacking any real complexity but a solid offering overall.

At first I didn’t enjoy the flavor, but after I got double digit ounces into the beer, it really was rather good.
