3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home, thanks to an IP trade with Stuart, 15/03/14.
Lightly hazed golden amber with a well appointed off white head that retains well.
Nose is pale malt, straw, orange,
Taste comprises orange pith, light mineral notes, light hop presence, bread dough, lemon rind.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so APA, a pretty basic affair, not much hop presence, clean and easy drinking none the less - it’s a state tick !!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Good People. A bit of a burnt orange color to the beer with some white foam. Has a good bit of floral and citrusy hop character to it. Slight grass and pine bitterness to the flavor. Quite a bit of bready and toasty malts, too. Maybe a little bit more caramel than I normally like. Maybe a touch low in terms of carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can, thanks to shrubber85. Illegible code stamp on the bottom of the can. Can foams a bit upon opening. Hazy slightly darker orange color. Bigger kind of airy off-white head. Leaves good webs of lace. Nose is a bit stale smelling up front, was worried this may be older... but flavor isn’t bad. Pretty nice biscuity malt, some bubblegum, and floral hop. Some pepperiness, mild funk. Moderate plus bitter taste, milder sweet.. Light slick body, but more dry finish. Medium body. Lighter to moderate carbonation, pleasant mild effervescence. Surprisingly nice. Good one to enjoy with my sandwich.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can from shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! Pours a mostly clear orange with a huge, frothy off-white head that settles unevenly and leaves heavy lace in the glass. Notes of caramel, grass, leaves, orange citrus, sugars, tea, and paper. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a bitter, malty, leafy mouthfeel. So-so APA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazed amber-gold with a white head of some retention. Aroma impression is lavender soap, raw yeast, dryer sheets, with hops expressed as muted mandarin orange and green leaf vegetables. Medium-light bodied, semi-sweet with medium+ bitterness. It’s silky and fine in the mouth and the effervescence is higher than expected for the style, and along with the raw yeast notes I would guess that something went awry during fermentation. Not enough to make it offensive, but enough to overwhelm whatever malt and hop expression was intended. From 12oz can.
