3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Rancho Dr brewpub. This brew pours a clear golden-amber color with a thin white head that diminishes steadily. Thin stringy lacing. Light hops and citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied with weak citrusy hops, caramel and malt flavor. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Forgettable overall.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale light gold color with a mild hop aroma. Medium hop flavor, but still light even for an APA. Nothing special, but very drinkable and crisp bubbly carbonation. Didn’t get a lot of interesting flavors out of this one.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
20 oct 07, draft at BD Cafe & Casino, LV. Clear, light amber colored. Sweet malt flavors and heavenly hop florals. Flavor is of a nice malt body backed up by a big hop bitterness. I’ve had IPAs that were not as bitter as this APA. Very Good.
