rosenbergh (6491) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2013
12 oz bottle. (Midtown Liquor) Tulsa, OK.
Clear pale golden colour with a small frothy white head. Floral and fruity hops, mild bitterness and grainy malty body in the aroma. Solid APA. Tasty fruity and resiny hoppiness, moderate bitterness and malty body. I like this. Very tasty.

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12oz shorty bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan body. Frothy off-white head laces the glass. Earthy, bready malt..steady hop backbone...pretty much a solid APA..on the strong side. Quality, but maybe a decade behind in flavor profile. Overall, I’ll take it.

deaconmike (360) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. Clear yellow with fizzy white head which leaves significant lacing. Floral and citrusy aroma along with an oaky malt backdrop. Mostly bitter in taste - piney with a bit of caramel malt in a supporting role. Medium body with high carbonation. Seems more like an IPA to me than an APA.

crossovert (6934) - Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Soapy sud head. The smell is citrusy and herbal, really pleasant actually. It has a nice bitter and herbal hop presence. Lots of citrus zest, a bit of spice. Nice.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2013
A - Hazy amber body with a 2 finger head that creates sudsy lacing down the side of the glass. S - Sweet citrus, very floral, mint leaves, mild pale malt. T - Floral and green herbal hops right up front, dried grapefruit peel, hints of lemon, dry pale malt, bitterness starts building through the finish in the form of herbal tea tannins. The finish is dry with a floral aftertaste. M - Medium body, moderate soft carbonation. A nice dry-hopped Pale Ale with plenty of hop flavor. The citrus was alot drier than the nose let on. Lots of floral and herbal goodness, ABV is hidden very well. A solid drinker. Serving type: bottle 07-13-2012

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Golden color with a faint haze and a fluffy white head. Bright sharp citrus and tropical fruit hop nose. Fresh orange zest, tangerine, red grapefruit, and some pineapple notes with some caramel sweetness. The finish is all hops. This is a nice, easy drinking hoppy beer.

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2013
A: Hazy golden-amber body with an exceptionally attractive and creamy, durable head. S:Smells like a pilsner with a slightly high malt/hops ratio. T - Starts mildly bitter but bitterness starts building in the finish. Mixed hops (Euro hops?) throughout but no strong hop note other than an unfortunate long-lasting, earthy bitterness in the aftertaste. M: Medium-light body, medium-high carbonation. O: Decent, but leans to the less fruity and more earthy ends of the APA spectrum.

wedgie9 (1824) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2013
Tasted on 4/15/13 from a 12oz twist-cap bottle purchased at Grand Cru. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is a nice blend of caramelized orange peel, honey, a touch of caramel, citrus, and resin hops. The flavor is the same, with the caramelized orange peel the main focus and all of the bitter hops notes balancing the sweet notes. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long resin hops and caramelized orange peel finish. This is a solid pale ale.
