"i agree with phishpond’s "weak on the hops" assertation. maybe i got an off batch, but this was one boring ass beer. my notes on this one say beer flavored water. not exactly what i look for in an apa."

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear yellow gold pour, white head. This one is pretty dull - nothing really standing out in this. Just a bland pale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with white head, aroma is citrusy with a bit of malt. Taste up front is orange and lemon, tangy, and heads into a bit of bready/caramel sweetness that bitters a bit at the end. Not a bad session beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured a clear bright golden with a short white head. Aroma picked up soft bready and caramel notes.. not much else.. not very complex. Flavor had a sweet caramel and grapefruit middle with pleasant grapefruit and floral bitterness.. tasty and simple with a short bready and pine finish. Very sessionable. Creamy middle on the palate with light-moderate bitterness.. lighter-bodied.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of fairly fresh, slightly resiny grapefruity hops with some mild sweet pale maltiness. Body starts semi-sweet with some grainy pale malty character balanced with some piny flavoring and bittering hops toward a semi-dry finish. Pretty drinkable, but not as assertive as some APAs.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden clear beer with a decent off white head. A nice hop aroma with some caramel malt. Earthy flavor a nice hop / malt balance. Light fruit, spice, and floral tastes. No adjuncts noticed. A zesty feel. American Pale Ale Lite might describe this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in the brewery beer garden. Prototypical APA visuals. Drinks with a bit of a malty bite up front, and just a bit of light fruit. Great option for the beer garden. (#5135, 7/4/2013)

(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear gold with sparse fine white bubbles. Nose of orange, cream, and herbal. Taste is oddly a bit tart, cracker, earth, rye and a bit of orange with a dry finish.
