2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Tap at the brewpub in Napa. Hazy orange pour with a small pure white head. Floral hops on the aroma and taste. Not bad but not terribly exciting either.

I had this at the brewpub in downtown Napa. this is a bit of a muted APA, hops and malt are present but I thought they were a bit toned down.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a draft pour at the downtown Napa brewpub this poured a clear yellow with a small white head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts and floral hops. Light in body and a bit thin in mouthfeel. The flavor is balanced between malts and hops with a light bitter finish. Might make a good session beer but I would like to have seen more flavor.
