Citrus aroma. Poured tall white head. Hops come through immediately. Pretty good, but not enough balance iMO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice to see this one in bottles; was on tap at the brewpub in Bend for the longest time. A: Thudding red brick/brown. Fluffy off-white head. N: Hops are at the forefront. Pine, grapefruit, earth, peppercorn. Citrus. Toffee and sweet, bready malt. Honey and fields. T: Mostly sweet, with some hop bitterness to round things out. M: Quite dense and creamy. Medium body. O: A pretty big beer for only ending up at 5.4%. Good flavor, definitely on the sweeter side for an APA

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice, deep, coppery Amber. I feel like there's good hop flavor hiding somewhere in there, but it's muted. Wish it packed a little more punch. A decent session beer.

Deep bronze with a thin head flows she. Some soft pine tree and tropical whiffage going on in the nose. Tastes is refreshing, gentle hops with a cereal malt spine, some grass and mangoes. Session flavour? I think so!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper-orange with a one finer off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of pine, citrus, sweet malts, caramel, floral hops, and some light fruits. Taste is similar to the aroma with pine cone, citrus (a lot of orange), sweet caramel malts, and some tropical fruits. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slightly dry, semi-moderate bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, well balanced XPA that has some interesting flavors

Nitro pour into pint glass at Town Hall Lanes. Orange, maybe copper color with a steady, dependable head. Taste is better than other beers I’ve had on nitro. Maintains a decent freshness and a solid, if unspectacular flavor. Some sweetness and a present bitterness at the end. Worth a shot if you spot it at your local bar establishment.

Bomber. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A nice light fruity nose. The flavor is big oranges, hell a bit of resin, lemons, biscuit, a mellow caramel malt, some British yeast. Quite good. A big PA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro at Stouts. Really nice foam head and cascading reorganization of the nitrogen gas. Slightly dark amber. Clear. Massive amount of lacing. Floral and slight citrus nose. Buttery, floral hops and a slightly sweet finish. Would like this a little better attenuated, but it is pleasant.

Pours a finger and half of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is just lots of pine, but good.
The taste is nicely balanced pine bitterness and honey sweetness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Very drinkable and tasty.
