3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Decently hoppy, but not overly. This shows less aromatic hop notes than most APA’s. This isn’t necesarily a bad thing, as it quite drinkable. Some light toffee sweetness, leading to the lightly flowery, lightly earthy hop characters, its drinkable, if not overly exciting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2007 Bottle... Clear, light golden ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. Malty, fruity nose with notes of grapefruit, vanilla, toffee and a hint of oak. Good balance. Mild to medium sweetness and bitterness with a little vanilla, toffee and oak. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, fairly clean finish. More like an EPA than APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Beer is a clear, medium orange with a small, frothy, white head that vaporizes immediately. The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate notes of lemon, flowers and iced tea, trace of resin/pine. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a longer than average, lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is fizzy. I have really enjoyed the delicate, refreshing notes in this beer. It’s highly drinkable, yet still reasonably complex.
