Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a very faint musty berry note with a hint of earthy grain. Flavor has a good amount of berry with just a hint of citrus and a bread backbone.

Draft to taster at Bell’s. Looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with off-white lacing. Smells of citrus and sweet malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry finish. Enjoyable.

Mild berrylike aroma. Sweet flavor, hops arent up front but rather subtle, nothing noteworthy.

At Eccentric, golden orange pour, very subtle flavors, citrus stands out with a little floral thrown in. It is smooth and tasty.

ekoerper (588) - Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Tap.. Aroma is more subtle than I had expected - some citrus and tropical fruit. Golden to slightly orange pour, white head with good retention and lacing. Flavor focuses on the hops, obviously, with grapefruit and a bit of mango up front, also some resin. A touch of toasty malt is there for balance, slight sweetness.

On tap at Bells. Great bite, strong hints of citrus. Interesting, good. Nothing I would have on a regular basis ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Probably the most pleasantly drinkable APA I’ve come across. Sweet citrus hops caress the nose and palate. Nothing extraordinary stands out, but nothing detracts either. Sessionable goodness

Tap. Deep amber with small head. Floral and citrus hops. Fruity. Mild and very drinkable.

On tap 10/24/12 at Bells. The aroma is a bit off putting of stagnant old beer at first, but the taste is wonderful. Piney with a tropical fruit presence. Something such as mango or peach... Not that peach is tropical. Smooth clean finish. Very good and likely the best in the series for me.
