Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis and Mike. Medium orange hue, off white head with good retention. Lovely floral and pine aromatics that translate to nice bright hop complexity on the palate, fields and forests, bitter finish. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge head on top of a coppery amber body. The head is puffy and sticks to the glass everywhere. The aroma is citrus heavy with nice light pine notes, light spicy hop aromas and a bit of a floral perfume. Sweet caramel and bready malts up front, light lemon rind, bitter citrus and floral notes. A bit monotone with lighter bitterness and halted astringency.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at yardhouse in Rancho Cucamonga
pours bright orange with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is fruity pebbles all the way. Flavors are very floral soft very subtle. Finish is sligbtly sweet lite hop bitterness and zesty. Body is lite with firm carbonation yet fits the beer well. This is a solid Apa for sure! Not much else to say other than its a good fresh hoppy apa

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy pale amber with three fingers of fluffy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is pithy grapefruit, mango and tropical fruit, light pine, pale malt. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (4/5)
Pleasant aroma with lots of the usual starts-with-C suspects, as well as some Mosaic and Amarillo: a blend that I tend to like quite a bit, and this is no exception. Dry hopped for lots of aroma, without huge bitterness on the tongue make this a more-ish and quite refreshing APA. (Though, truth be told, this could pass for an A/IPA just about anywhere.) Were it not for the >5% ABV, I’d suggest it’s even sessionable. Though I suppose that just means it would have to be a slightly shorter session? (15/20)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. Bottled 01/31/2014. (El Cerrito Liquors) Corona, CA.
This is not exactly fresh bottle but... let's see. Clear golden colour with a tiny white ring.
The aroma is caramel sweetness, fruity hops and mild bitterness. Passable.
The flavour is fruity hops, mild bitterness, earthy notes and some maltiness. Doesn't taste that fresh. What a shame. But it's drinkable.

Just nothing spectacular or noteworthy here. Golden color, meh. Slight tangerine and honey nose, eh. Nondescript citrus tartness, hmmm. Average in every way. Skip.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a generous white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some tropical fruits and grains. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a tasty brew that must be sampled.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has a lovely rich peachy golden colour that I have come to associate with many APAs, a pillowy cream coloured head and a touch of haze. The aroma is of spices first with garam masala and Sichuan peppers. It is gorgeously aromatic, like incense in a glass. Coupe this with fruity peaches and dessert maltiness. The flavour begins with a mellow sweetness that takes in spice and pepper. It is much more mellow than I expected with green pine lingering on the bitter finish.
Maybe a touch of oxidised character? Otherwise, a tasty devil.

12 oz can poured on national beer can appreciation day. I do indeed appreciate the canned beer world. Pours golden with a huge foamy head. Ton of hops on the aroma. Nice hoppy, super flavorful beer that I can probably drink all day. Great beer.
