Tap. Golden with thin white dissipating head and decent lacing. Smells a little cat pissy. Tastes a little cat pissy, too, but also perfumey. Very soft mouth feel, moderate hop finish.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12

Aroma:†The nose has some caramel, some citrus, a little pine, and a little grain
Appearance:†This one pours a caramel color with a white head and lots of lace on the glass
Flavor:†The taste of this one is a little sweet, and it has a medium hop bitterness to it
Palate:†It has a fairly clean feel to it, with a medium body, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression:† Iím surprised I havenít rated this one before, as this is probably the Blue Mountain beer I have seen the most in stores and bars, and I am pretty sure Iíve tried it before. Anyway, this is a very solid APA.

12 oz. can from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA (best by February 2013). Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, pineapple, canned peaches, and light pine. The flavor is what you would expect from the aroma; citrus with soft pine and well balanced with the malts. A bit thin even for a pale ale but still good.

jgb9348 (5015) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Crisp copper coloured body with a nice amber glow and a one centimetre tall tan head - nice. Aroma of caramel malt, nuts, earth, grass and a bit of raisins. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and malty notes up front with a bit of an english hop flavour of caramel and earth and the fleeting taste of apples and pears on the finish. Aftertaste shows some nuts, earth, grass and a bit of european hoppiness. Overall, a nice beer - definitely showing more english roots (hence an EPA) than american - but a solid beer that isnít phenomenal, but good. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in Falls Church (Tysonís Corner), Virginia on 31-October-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 12-November-2012.

12 oz can courtesy of RABinVA. Pours copper/amber with a 1 finger off white head. Some lazy rings of lace. Sweet biscuit aroma undercut by some herbal hops scent. Taste is caramel/toffee sweetness, balanced well by some hop bitterness. Moderate bodied with a nice smooth feel. Nice.

From a can: Copper color with average hop aroma - slight citrus. Good example of a APA. Balanced malt and hops taste with little bittering.

sloth (2607) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2012
nice, white, large head with fair retention and lace. Bright amber copper colored brew. Soft nose of pine and citrus, lil leafy and a hint yeasty. Body is medium, good carbonation a bit spritely with light resinous notes as well. Dry malt flavors are a little biscuity and bready with a soft hop backing of citrus, pine and a hint of tropical fruit. Dry finish with a solid bite,lil fruity. A well balanced and easy quaffer! 12oz. can from statelineliquors.

radarsock (1112) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Can, thanks to Drsilverworm -- many of your sessions await me! Pours an orangey copper with a big-assed head--three-to-four fingers. Smells of hop pellets, citrus extract and some yeast. Thatís about it. Tastes malty with some hop pellets, orange peels and yeast. Kind of one dimensional but stil very much alive and drinkable.
