3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one on draught at the brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin. Clear, medium golden pour with a wispy white head, light floral hoppy nose, nuanced bitterness but plenty of floral, piney hops. Strong but balanced finish. Great!

[Growler, thanks Skyview] Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of a lot of grain and grapefruit. Taste is not very bitter, a lot of grain throughout with some grapefruit at the end. Not the best APA out there, but not the worst either.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden color with thin, white, fizzy head. Aroma is like floral hops and subtle malt backbone. Taste is floral hops, light biscuit and slight citrus. Easy drinking and well carbonated. This would be an excellent lawnmower beer.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 Pale golden with thin white head. Mild citrus, cascade nose, and mild caramel aroma notes. Citrus, mild earth and lite sweet malt balance. Smooth, but not a robust APA. Good for a small session.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle pours an almost clear orange with small white head but good lacing. Aroma is of piney and citrus hops with a good caramel malt backbone, but nothing overpowering. Flavor is malty without much of a finish. Light to medium body. A good APA but nothing I’ll remember.
