COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

dwm1034 (629) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle from sampler rack at PW. Pours clear golden orange with thin white head. Mildly hoppy, floral nose. Initial taste isnít as bitter / hoppy as youíd usually expect from a typical pale. Not bad but far from outstanding...pleasant.

Clear medium amber with a persistent head and splashes of lace. The taste is a crisp, clean caramel malt, followed with a light, but clear, hop finish. Doesnít sound like much, but it makes a fine, easy-drinking brew. Donít expect the world, just a good easy-drinking beer. Recommended.

fidelis83 (1910) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours gold with a thin white head that has decent retention. Aroma is mostly citrus, some pine, toast and caramel. Flavor is caramel, citus and cookie dough up front, then a nice toast and cereal grain comes in alon with a some pine to finish it out along with a bread dough, toast and citrus fade. Palate is fairly light and crisp with a creamy entry, off dry finish and light, spritzy carbonation. Nice pale ale, decently hoppy, but has a nice, full malt profile without being overly sweet. It has a nice, clean, crisp and refreshing palate to boot. Awesomely balanced, nice summer quencher for sure.

Bottle. Clear yellow gold pour, white head. This one is pretty dull - nothing really standing out in this. Just a bland pale.

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Bottle. Nice golden in color without to much head. Somewhat of a citrus aroma with hops. Flavor consists of citrus and perhaps pine, while it is not to hoppy. Nothing really negative to say, but nothing to special to speak of either.

CanIHave4Beers (3198) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pours a deep golden color with a small head.

The aroma is lightly sweet with a nice citrus forward fruitiness. Very clean smelling, not particularly brilliant but nice smelling.

The flavor is spicy, fruity, and dry with a nice hop bitterness, & some light citrus character. The maltiness is crisp and clean, and particularly noticeable. All together the flavor is perfectly balanced, Everything is in itís right place.

Iím guessing this bottle was about as fresh as possibly because this was pretty nice tasting. I can see how it might not last so well if left too long on the shelf.

JoePeesie (855) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Nothing special here. Its an okay APA, but I didnít find the hop profile very interesting or exciting. I would buy this beer again if my options were limited, but I certainly wouldnít seek int out.

S_Side_Smitty (436) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Light amber in color with a thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine & malts - maybe a little yeast too. Taste is a combination of citrus-like hops and a strong roasted malt flavor. I know Iím being vague, but itís hard to pinpoint exact flavors. Up front, youíre hit with the hops and that super rich "maltiness". The light bitterness slides in at the finish - itís almost sneaky. Not bad, but a little monotone for me.

monkeychugg55 (841) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Golden amber with a small head. Sweet grains and floral hops is the aroma. The flavor is similar, with a lingering English hop flavor like that of a London Pride. Light body, soft carbonation, wet finish. Nice flavor and easy to drink.

jmohno (1053) - Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Creamy ring of foam,no head.Medium gold.More of a floral hop aroma than spice ,fruit but fairly mild,then a mineral aroma with sweet grain(belgian malt?) and soft bread,mildly english. Good immediate short lived creamy/ body,soft taste with good hop flavor then an sharp/tart citrusy spice light herbal bittering. Even a bit of pepperyness overall.Very dry light finish,making this very sessionable.Pretty nice overall taste of hops. Good residual bittering with light sweet carmel malt. I wouldnt ever pass up a few pints of this,probably wouldnt get sick of a six pack of this either.
