3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Love the appearance, deep brown with red hues and tons of yeast floating around. Grassy citrusy hops aroma and oh what could have been, the flavor is a nice blend of floral hops slightly bready, and malt but the palate is thin and seriously detracts from this good beer.

Pours a golden color with a large, fluffy, cream colored head. The aorma is citrusy with some spice. The flavor is mildy hopped with a slight spicey finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. Amber with fluffy, thick off white head. Grassy, hoppy aroma with a sweet orange twang. Sweet malts then light bitter hops. A relly nice beer I could only imagine would be fantastic on cask. Nice and hoppy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear and bright gold in color with no head. Aroma is sweet honey, grapefruit and apricots, along with hints at a dew on a spring morning’s grass. Grapefruit and papaya lead the flavor pattern in a very smooth and easy going manner. I’d like a bolder hop presence, but it is an APA and the requisite ration of hops to malts seem to be in order. Tiny bit chewy with the shortest of hop stops. Carbonation is lacking. Finishes like an iced down summer cooler. Nevertheless, it’s still a decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep amber, bordering on copper, large foamy sand colored head, enjoyable lacing, lively carbonation. Pale hop nose, moreso malty and biscuity. Quite biscuity on the tongue, very assertive in fact. Hop bitterness only appears near the tail end. Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Perhaps a touch of tobacco on the finish as well. I like American Pale ales, but the Biscuit specialty malts always make me think of milk bones for dogs. Good, but not hoppy/bitter enough for my tastes. Thanks Mark for giving me the opportunity to try this one!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty & green. Aroma is very candi sugar, subdued green hops. Lots of hop bitterness but not a whole lot of flower flavor. Hops do balance the malt well.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap: Light grapefruit aroma. At the brewery so smell is a little harder to pick up compared to sitting at home in front of the computer. A nice amber with an okay head. Very nice lacing. Very well balanced. Nice malt in the beginning followed by nice hop bitterness that balances well in the finish.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was a great beer. The aroma was hoppy with a nice crisp hop scent. The color was a darker orange/reddish color with a nice white head. The flavor was very balanced with a juicy hop flavor coming through. A really great beer and one that I recommend to everyone.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Rockingout. Poured a deep orange color. Head was sparse. Aroma is citrus hoppy with malt in the background. Mouthfeel is thin for me. Perhaps too much of a hop bite for the grain bill. Not unpleasant but not quite there for me.

Slightly citrusy malt and hop aroma. A bit like a more civilized IPA...
Nice amber colour with a small head. Pretty much IPA light in flavour, too.
