3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper pour with a 3 finger, frothy, chunky beige head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, tree and berry fruits, cereal, toasted bread, floral, citrus and tea-like planty hops. Flavor is all toast and fruit up front, then nice apple and sweet stone fruit notes, caramel, citrus and a little pine. There are some decidedly English yeast notes in here, despite the APA listing. Light body, entry is somewhere between creamy and crisp with a medium, blanketing carbonation and dry, nicely crisp finish. Really good stuff overall. As it warms it get a little messy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Moderate hop aroma, with earthy, floral, and caramel notes. Pours a clear amber with a quickly fading white head. Very full flavored, with a kiss of caramel sweetness which then goes to the hop notes. Flavors of citrus, and floral notes predominate, which slowly fade to a lingering bitter finish. A very nice APA to sit down and have a couple of.

Complex and full of hop aromas and a good hop flavor but there is more to it than just that. It is artful in the simplicity and yet pages could be written about it. I am a fan of the brewery in general and this beer in particular.

I’ve had these many times on tap up north and always really liked them. Drinking this one out of a bottle. Big nose of hops and citrus, some caramel. Tastes quite balanced.

On tap at the Wagon Wheel. Slightly dull aroma, lacks "pop". Hazy light yellow pour. Taste is good, juicy and piney at the same time. Low bitterness, balanced for easy drinking. Will get again.
