3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, pale copper, small white, fizzy head that doesnt stick around. Small bubbles pepper the body. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel, honey and a nuance of sour yeast - husky sweetness cut with the hops. Quite clean and crisp and a little dry in the mouth. A bready, malt sweetness offset by the bitterness of hops that are big in the middle and finish, but never overdone. More bready malt in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied and quite lively carbonation. Another nicely balanced, quite sessionable APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from arminjewell in trade. This is very clear light golden. A one finger white head leaves sticky lacing. The nose is not big but is dry and nice with floral and citrus notes. Some unusual bitterness is citrus and is dry. Pale malts that are biscuit. Floral and citrus hops. A little honey, too. The hops grab the tip of the tongue and hang on. This is a hop head’s delight. Very nice with a sessionable ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle-purchased at davidsons liquors in Littleton, Co-pours clear orange hue with a nice fluffy white soapy head. nose is very soft citrus, floral notes with of touch of carmel and lite bready notes. flavors follow suit-nice soft citrus and bread flavors with some carmel malt sweetness in there as well. very soft and pillowy body with soft carbonation. a great session beer here that would have been even better with a fresher sample (mine is 2 months old). Seemed a bit more punchy when i had it 2 weeks ago. Still world class beer here!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Klarer, goldener Apfelsaft. Der Schaum ist in Nullkommanix verschwunden. Ale-typisches würziges Aroma. Doch was ist das? Im Antrunk dünn und geschmacklich mangels malzigem Unterbau als unausgewogen und bissig zu bezeichnen. Der Hopfen hat auch einen seifigen Einschlag. Absolut nicht mein Geschmack!
