On tap at the Canal Street location. Clear dark amber colour. Lasting off-white head. A clean and refreshing APA with restrained hop presence. Quite dry with a fairly bitter finish. More malty than the average APA. Nice drinking.

jrob21 (3366) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2009
On tap at fenway location. Pour is dark orange, almost auburn color. A little bit of nut and caramel character to this. Soapy hop flavor and finish.

alobar (3408) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Very disappointing Amber color with no head. Slight aroma of hops. Weak flavor with toasted malts and some hop bitterness at the close. Seemed watered down.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Cask at the brewpub. poured a clear medium orange color with an off white head. Well balanced aromas of malty caramel and citrusy hops. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with lowish carbonation from the cask. There was mild to moderate bitterness and the flavor profile included the likes of flower blossom, citrus fruits (lemon, orange), and caramel. Nice, especially from the cask.

nimbleprop (7088) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2009
Got a chance to sip this side by side with the Back Bay IPA at the Fenway location. Doesn’t come close to the Back Bay. Pours a copper, amber with a very faint, wispy white head. Aroma is mild, grapefruits and lemons and crackers. Flavor is similar. Dry finish.

zapprentice (314) - East Setauket, New York, USA - APR 5, 2009
Ehh, nothing great, boring. Barely any nose, hoppiness and some minor fruits. Dry bitter taste with no redeeming qualities.

Lubiere (12553) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2009
An orange amber ale with a thin white head. Light c-hops in aroma with notes of grapefruits. In mouth, a nicely balanced malt, floral hops, with light grapefruit astringence. Light to medium bodied. Honest APA. On tap at Fenway brewpub, Oct. 12 2008.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Draft at Logan, Pier C. Amber ot copper in color. Citric aromas dominate, yet some light grains and malt do seem to creep through at times. Toasted to nutty malt is quickly replaced with citric hops. An APA, what can I say. Malt and hops with enough sweetness and backbone to take this beyond an amber.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - NOV 29, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 Draft at the Fenway location - sampled 10/5/08 - Poured a light amber in color with a small whitish head that did not stick around. Aroma was quite malty and sweet with a hint of hops. Flavor was also, initially, mildly malty sweet with a medium hop bitterness. No that distinguished, but an easy drinking beer.
