3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. Pours a dark hazy amber with a medium off white head, with very good lacing through out. Aroma of citrus and pine hops upfront with a good dose of caramel malt and yeast, which slowly intensify as it warms up. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast with a good dose of citrus pine hops, some distant notes of grapefruit, orange peel flavor as well. Palate is a medium body, smooth with a slightly sticky mouth feel, good carbonation. Finishes same as taste with some lingering caramel malt and hops bitterness. Overall this is a very good tasty and full flavored brew, very nice.

Flaska. Dimmigt bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Dofter av tropiska frukter och karamell. Grape, citron, karamell och tallbarr i smaken. Något torr munkänsla. En helt okey APA med stor beska.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden amber color with two fingers of eggshell foam that sticks and floats nicely. The nose is malt forward with medium toasted malts, honey sweetness almost graham cracker and some earthy pinesap notes. The palate follows with a round malt backbone with some added complexity of spice and a sappy pinecone presence. Touch of citrus and a grassy bitterness that really cleans up the palate on the backend.

Can @ Epic view tasting, Colorado. Pours a hazy amber beer with a massive off white head on top. Aroma is malty, caramel, not much more. Flavour is medium sweet, slight hoppy characters are noticeable in the end. Gets a bit skunked in the Colorado sun though

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce can thanks to nimble prop. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a somewhat hazy copper with a big white head of foam. The aroma is grassy, herbal, piny, and a little citrusy. The taste is more on the floral, pine bitterness than anything else. Some cracker presence comes through about mid palate. Overall, a nice APA.

Thanks to Ed5388 for the DC tick! Pours orange brown with an offwhite head that clings. Strong aroma of grapefuit and pine. Smooth mouthfeel, caramel malt, somewhat citrusy, ends in resinous hop bitterness.
