My favorite at the Dillon Dam brewery. Mildly hoppy with a slight bight, but smooth finish.

Pour on tap at the brewery was orange with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, biscuit, hints of spicy and grassy hops, touch of orange and grapefruit as well. Taste is a mix of spicy and grassy/pine hops, hints of caramel and biscuit, finishing fairly bitter. Nicely done!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle at the Two Below dinner and show. Pour is a copper golden with a smallish off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, along with herbal, orange citrus and earthy hops. nice balance between the two aromas. The taste follows the nose, though lacking a bit of "pop". The caramel malt starts, the herbal orange and earthy hops follow. The aftertaste picked up an ever so slight vegetal taste which detracted a touch. The palate was light to medium bodied. Overall, nice enough APA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at ACBF. Pours light gold. More flavor than expected as an extra pale, with a fair amount of hops, but not particularly well balanced.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to my 1/2 pint tasting glass with a cloudy, orange/amber hue, average, off white, bubbly head foam, and a good cling to a large band of lacing that spawned many streaks and dots down the interior of the glass. The aroma was perfumy, tropical fruit as pineapple, a little citrus, and sweet currants. The flavor added to these an initially pleasant, then lasting, moderate hop bitterness, less than medium body, followed by a dry finish. A nice APA, but I wouldn’t consider it a strong variety.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
120z bottle via trade with tgenenbacher, thanks Todd! Pours a slightly hazy peachy gold with a 1 finger rocky off white head that has good retention. Aroma is full of sweet caramel, fig, fruity floral and light citrus hops, toffee and plant hops. Flavor is caramel, citrus, toffee, white bread crust, salty meat and very faint vegetal notes. Palate is light to medium bodied a little syrupy on entry leading to a fairly dry finish with a light carbonation. Not a bad APA.
