copper color, clear, decent citrus hoppiness in the nose. flavor is a nice mix of brown sugar and citrus. the bitterness is more along the lines of an IPA rather than an APA. clean and crisp...not bad.

Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with foamy head. Some mild hop aroma. Flavor is hops but well balanced. Abv is well hidden. Nice APA

Beautiful red amber color with medium head. Fine combination of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Good brew, but no different than many ales.

I think this is a really nice APA. Aromas of soapy hops and caramel. Flavors are bitter and tangy citrus hops with a nice malty backbone. Very nice.

copper color, a bit of citrus hoppiness. flavor is a nice mix of malt and citrus. It says APA here, but it was marketed to us on tap as a double IPA--definitely not a DIPA. fairly dry body. Itís OK.

A wonderful American IPA. Just the right amount of bitterness. Love this beer on a hot day for that smooth, crisp and refreshing flavor!

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Deep red ale, crystal clear, with one finger of off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, flora hops. Taste follows the aroma - the swallow starts with sweet malts and traslates to a fine complex hoppiness, ending iwth a pleasant bitterness and dry finish. Hops are flora with overtones of spice, citrus, and pine. I didnít know the style before looking here, but guessed pale ale, so it seems true to me, but the maltiness may also suggest a hopped a red ale. Either way it is a fine fine brew and one that Iíll be getting again. It may be a winter seaosnal but Iím quaffing it on a 96 degree day and loving every drop.

On cask for Firkin Fest at the Happy Gnome in St. Paul 09. Had a medium pour with a good malt character accompanied with medium hops. It was a bit big to be a pale ale malt-wise but I guess the hops didnít kick it into IPA mode. Pretty good brew overall.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma has got a nice floral hop overtone with candied malt backing. Scent is most likely cascade or similar hop. Appearance is a dark clear amber or red with a thick off white slightly tan head that lingers. Taste is kind of all over the place decent pungent hop with some mixed up malt. Really kind of a mixed bag of a beer. Palate is lively on the tongue, slightly bitter sweet aftertaste. Overall, Itís kind of all over the place. Cheers!
