Color is a golden haze with thick white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells of grapefruit and lemon some malt. Excellent dry taste and finish, slightly sweet on the front end. Just a great beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazed golden ale with a finger of soapy white foam falling to a quilt. Citrus nose with hints of grass and lemon. Slightly bitter with a sweet malty profile and the lemon is still there with some grassiness. Medium bodied with moderate carb. Decent APA, nothing particularly mind blowing. It would be nice to know when it was canned.... 3.5/4/3.5/3.5/3.5
Original review: 07FEB11
Thanks for this one jbtice0315.
A: golden with hazy appearance. Two finger loose egg white foam. Nice lacing.
S: good citrus hoppiness. Nicely Americanized for the apa style. Reminds me of grand Tetons apa. Nice.
T: good pale. Pretty standard with a hint of tartness. Not bad at all. Caramel heavy on the palate here for a pale, but nonetheless nice.
M: medium body with pretty high carb. Slick but drying.
D: good sessionable beer. Glad I got to try it. It’s nice. 4/4/4/3.5/4-3.93
Serving type: can

Can courtesy of AirForceHops. Grapefruit, caramel malt, and earthy orange aroma. Hazy copper with a small off-white head. Grapefruit hops, citrus peel, and biscuity caramel malt flavor. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation. This one is smooove, well balanced and oh so easy to drink.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white mousse like head with great retention and lacing. Has a nice grassy and citrus aroma with some herbs and a detectable malt sweetness. Hops are dominate in the taste with citrus and floral notes as well as some grassiness and orange zest bitterness. There is some slight sweetness and even a bit of bread crust. Finishes clean with some lingering bitter. Mouthfeel is crisp with a medium body and carbonation. Wonderful pale ale with a lot of crisp and clean flavor that makes it very drinkable and very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Half Acre tap room and liked it enough to bring home a 16 oz. can four pack. Lightly hazy gold / orange color with soapy, white head. Nose starts with sweet grain with then tangerines and piney grapefruit. The malt bill produces a nice solid backbone of caramel and bread. The hops are consistent throughout the brew. Bright citrus notes, pine resin and light grass. If I said this is well balanced, that would be an understatement. Bitterness is lightly lingering. Highly drinkable, very nicely balanced and absolutely refreshing. Do yourself a favor get this fresh from the source, a can with age will not do it justice.

2013 can to a tulip glass. Pouts a clear honey yellow color with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is grassy and piney hops, citrus and some malt sweetness. Taste is hops forward, a little soapy and grassy. Only faint malt flavor. Medium, astringent mouthfeel.

On tap at Romans. Golden amber with a creamy thin bone lacemaker. Aroma is a bit stalky with floral and citrus hops and a pale malt backer. Taste is floral and pale with toasted malt and a strong bitter finish. Okay, though a touch bland.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can, thanks to preismj! Almost clear golden liquid with a light amber hue and medium off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, flowers, mango, weed, pineapple, light bread, grapefruit and lemon peel. Loads of tropical fruit. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter (balanced) with notes mango, bread, toast, biscuit, flowers and citrus. The malt base comes forward a lot more in the taste. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Just a great APA, one of the best I’ve had. Dry and over the top hoppy, but still balanced.
