3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a clear burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy white head that sticks around and plenty of lace. Huge tangy grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel and tons of complex acidic grapefruit and lemon on the mid palate. Long resiny finish. Wonderfully sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark golden with a huge off-white head and a floral citrus aroma. There is a light-bodied pale malt flavor with a bitter earthy finish. Not very balanced, yet a refreshing, drinkable brew.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear copper colour with rocky white head. Aroma is big tropical fruits. Taste is as well. This is a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very big rising head on dirty amber. Moderate hop scent. Huge dry hop flavour on light malt. Like a cigarette and a sipper in your mouth. Dry hop cloud and not heavy-handed APA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
