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.

Can from probably Wegmans - pours clear pale gold, decent head. I have to say that most of the beers in this style bore me, so they end up drain pour, as an act of mercy. This one, however, I actually enjoyed and happily drank the whole thing. DC Brau, you’ve restored my belief that this is a worth while style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can sample at Canvitational. Poured clear dark golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop and earthy aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.
