Very easy to drink brew. Poured from the bomber, it has a slightly hazed golden body with a respectable white head that left some spotty lace. The aroma was sweet and grainy with a citusy hoppiness, mostly oranges with a touch of zest. The flavor, too, was malt forward with a balance of citrus fruit and a mild bitterness. Not bad.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2010
A new beer introduction at GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that has some nice retention and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, grassy hops and some green vegetables. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of roasted and dried caramel malt, a hint of tangerine and some grassy hops. Finish has a surprisingly semi-sweet finish with a touch of orange/tangerine zest aftertaste and a mild English style bitterness that slowly disappears. Right in between both American and an English Pale Ale is best to describe this Pale Ale.

Strykzone (4900) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
A ESBLS tasting bottle. This looks like a hefe with that hazy funkiness. A lemon grass aroma. Light tart citrus flavor wit some pepper spice, caramel, and that lemongrass again. A tart acidic finish. A decent pale ale.

Thanks to my bad-ass summer Secret Santa for the bomber! Hazy gold pour with a medium carbonation and a fine silky head. Bitter, tea-like nose initially but then opens up into modest floral notes. Well balanced flavors, with a solid malty base and the bitterness is complemented by some bright fruits the further in you get. Solid.

22oz bomber from Spirits Middletown. Poured a thinner bodied deep honey orange/brown with a smaller to average sized off white foamy long lasting head. Aroma is sweet to start off, notes of honey, grapes, raisin, toast, well done roasted cereal grains and some older citrus fruit rinds that are dried out. Thinner watery mouthfeel with average carbonation and a lingering aftertaste. Favor is basically the same as the aroma,starts off with a honey sweetness that quickly turns to lots of malts, cereal,toast and biscuit followed with some citrus rinds. Meh

Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/18/12

Aroma: The nose has grassy hops, citrus/orange, a little bit of grain, and some rather light spice notes
Appearance: This one pours a mostly clear orangish-gold color with a small head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, with a malty profile, and some light-medium hop bitterness as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a semi-smooth feel, some mild stickiness, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is my first rating from Big Muddy, Iíll assume they just got distribution to NJ, since they just showed up in Buy Rite, and most of their beers have only a small number of ratings, including this one, which only has 20. Anyway, even though this wasnít a favorite APA for me, I still found much of it enjoyable. Iím curious to see what the rest of the beers I purchased from Muddy are like...

Aroma is yeast and malts with some citrus, very reminiscent of a bitter. The flavor has a nice hop bite to it with citrus and bread as well, that leads to bitter finish. Very close to an English interpretation of an APA, unique and pretty good.

This 22 oz bomber was sent to me courtesy of Strkzone. It poured a hazy light amber with a robust off-white head that had excellent retention and decent lacing. The nose is caramel malts with floral and grassy hops. Medium body with a smooth and clean mouthfeel. Flavor is a good balance between light malts and hop bitterness, which carries over into the finish. A very nice version of APA that was good to the last drop.

HonkeyBra (3318) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2011
My first experience with a Southern Illinois brewery. Golden pour with slight orange tint with a big rocky white head. Aroma of grassy hops, some leafy hop notes too. Light honey bread and pale malt. Light toasted cereal notes. Flavor of subtle leafy hops, mild grassiness. Fairly dry, mild toasted and cereal malt. Lighter bodied for a pale, carbonation boarders on fizziness. Finishes on a fairly bitter hop note. Pretty nice pale ale.
