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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hopfiger, dunkel bitterer Beginn. Die Bitterkeit steigt, die blumigen Noten bleiben z.T. darunter verborgen. Dies bleibt für eine längere Zeit so, spät dann leicht hefig, die Bitterkeit sinkt zugunsten der Hopfigkeit. Nett! 8/10/11/10/10/10

Can @ Dan’s house. Strangely enough, I acquired two cans of this in one week: one from foppa78 and one from beerandblues2 via ratman. Thanks for the dc tick. Hazy orange appearance with a tan head. Mild floral, orange hoppy, pale malty aroma. Slightly tangy, floral, herbal hoppy, somewhat bitter, pale malty flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Meridian Pint for the official release. Pours a hazed, deeper yellow to orange/gold topped by a fairly rocky, yellowish head. Not a hell of a lot of retention or lace. Aroma is caramel, lemon, orange candy, sweat. Taste is dry, bitter, very soapy, oatmeal malty. Really gets massively soapy and extremely bitter. Thick, hoppy, full-bodied. A little too intense for APA- would do better as IPA.

Sampled at the NoVa Summer Beer Fest in Leesburg, VA on 6/25/11. Sampled repeatedly in fact. Also, my 4000th rating! Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention, nice lacing. Aroma of earthy hops with a strong caramel backbone. The taste is earthy, citrus hops with a malty background. Medium bodied. Very nice beer.
