COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

BigBeer45 (1209) - Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2010 Bottle from Champanes, has a clear bright, medium gold pour with some effervescence, produced a white one to two finger head that dissipated to a ring, aromas of bread, faint floral and citrus hops, light pear fragrance, hints of toasted malt, little sweetness on the nose, flavors of toasted malt with some bread, grain and light fruit, has a crisp finish with some hop bitterness, mouth feel is a little less than medium with some hop bitterness, an ok Pale Ale, pretty easy to drink, and I think this would taste good with Pizza.

Doppelganger (1387) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Pretty pale yellow, small layer of white bubbles. Rustic dried grapefruit aroma, pleasant woody nose like Pride of Ringwood. Very clean lemony malt, melon and pollen hops, brisk and nicely balanced.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2009
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, rich firm head. Peachy hoppy nose. Sweet with some butter, plenty of paper, mango and peach. Very fruity with sweet crystallic malt an marked late bitterness. Too sweet, fruity and clean to be great.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle . A clear pale golden color pour with a small white head that quickly fades, medium carbonation . Aroma is light floral hops and a hint of citrus . Flavor is much the same as the aroma , a little malt up front with a citrusy hop profile, lightly yeasty , well balanced for a APA but lite on the bittreness . Light body with a clean , but slightly oily mouthfeel . A slightly hoppy peppery finish . Quite sessionable and a pretty good try .

arkurzynski (1394) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Pours nice golden/bronze. Aroma not overly hoppy, but above average. For my taste, not as bitter as I like in an APA, but again, decent. Like previous rater noted, background hint of toasted malt.

nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Golden orange color, minimal head. Earthy, soapy hop aroma. Mild soapy bitterness with a smooth malt backbone. Fresh and enjoyable. Medium bodied. Light fruitiness and toasty malt nuances. Pretty good, but hardly world class stuff.

Trev (1840) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Pours clear medium gold with a thin head. Aroma is sweet maltiness and fruity hop. Fruity flavour, light biscuity malt undertones. Clean finish.

kseecs16 (1182) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours a pale clear amber with a lace of off-white head that accumulates at the edge of the glass. Very little lacing. Floral hops aroma with a rich malty, spicy body. Light bodied, very mild, some spiciness in the finish. A bit soapy, hint of toast. Thin.

DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Rather clear, light gold pour, slight head. Smell has a bit of hoppiness, not much. Makes me wary that this is going for the megabrew market. However, the taste does redeem it. Peppery hop up front, almost German in character, with some citrus to the back. Goes down nice and fizzy, like a bar keg draft. Actually tastes nice cold, too. Sharper hops in the finish.
