Bottle. Large Cascade hop aroma, all sorts of citrus orange and a strange lime smell as well. Flavor is straight caramel malts and cherry cascacde. Very parched and dry palate, starchy.

Pretty nice beer. Flavor is bready and somewhat fruity. I like a little more caramel in pales usually, but this is very nice and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ever so slightly hazed light amber body, topped by a frothy off-white head. The aroma is floral with light soil and citrus. The flavor is medium sweet, citrus hops, floral hops, bready malt, and a good bit bitter. A pretty big APA. Medium body, lasting hoppy bitter finish. An above average APA.

Like biting into an orange. I would consider this an excellent session beer. Excellent on all levels. Gets "The League of Strange Beer Drinkers" seal of approval.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold and orange color with a large white head. Aroma is a massive pine and orange peel for an APA. Crisp and refreshing aroma with a hint of the malt. The taste is much lighter with hops than I would have expected. Hints of oranges and some hearty bread. Also some pine in the finish. A nice APA that would be worth revisitiing.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
a cloudy golden color w/ a thing white head and nice hints of carbonation bubbles. scent carried hopps, citrus, and a touch of sweet malts. the palate was fiarly light a touch malty nothing special here. Flavor was of light malt, with a fairly easy flavor and a nice hoppy undertone with some other hints of citrus maybe orange but a bit more bitter. overall a great light hopped beer.
thanks to blake for this one

this beer plays like a small beer: dry and bitter. light color, thin head, bright and sunny, filtered, handful of medium sized bubbles. malt is barely discernable, bitterness is too high relative to the malt , flavor hops are subdued, aroma hops are supercharged and seem to exacerbate the dryness. i think they may have tried too hard. as an aside, it’s too bad that here in chicago, only 150 miles from Grand Rapids, this beer is $9.49 a 6 pack. i mean, it’s good, but not Dogfish good. it’s maybe goose island good. the price should be $7.99 tops.
