2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
First visual impression looked like excess yeast in the bottle which was not the case. Beer poured with a nice white head that didnít not last very long after pour. Very citrusy in the nose with a light malt smell. Has a great bite from the hops, I wish the hops tasted a little more citrusy. Also pretty hot for it being 5.4%abv. Moderate Carbonation gives a nice crisp taste with a dry finish from the hops. Overall it could have been a little more maltier to balance some of bitterness and hide some of the up front alcohol .

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Logan Twp Giant Eagle. Pours a gorgeous, hazy orange with a huge, frothy white head. The nose is dominated by citrus hop notes, orange and lemon, cat pee and grass. Watery mouthfeel with lots of hop flavor, lemon orange and herbs, Not overly bitter, but chock full of hoppy goodness with out going overboard. Yummy.

On tap, Old Chicago, Bozeman MT. Pour is a cloudy yellow with an orange tinge to it, white thin head. Nose is distinct hops, hint of citrus as well. Taste is medium body, very bitter with a sweeter finish on the tail. The thing that got me is the actual blood orange taste at the end, very suprised. Nice beer.

Red-orange pour, foamy head. Pine, citrus, orange juice aroma. Blood orange and juicy hops in the flavor. Soapy bitterness on the long finish. Nice before-noon drinker, mimosa for the beer set. 7/4/8/4/15=3.8
Revist at home, 12 oz bottles 4/21/14.
Lighter than red-orange pour this time (was I imagining before, or has it changed?) Not aggressive at all, but the orange and citrus hops blend just right to make for a delicious beer. Super-drinkable. Bump to 7/4/8/4/16=3.9
(One of many) revisit(s) 5/28/14. OMFG. I suddenly get it. I had no idea what Prufrock was talking about when he described a mustard thing going on that ruins this beer -- now I totally get it. This one has mustard all up in your face on the front end of the beer. I canít really pin in down to a particular hop or other ingredient, nor can I even specify other beers that suffer from the same. I guess itís a characteristic of a few APAs that push too far out along a spectrum I would normally describe as metallic, but even that Iím not sure of. In any case, yeah, a ton of mustard detracts significantly.
