Serving: bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Soft citrus nose. A little on the sweet side with a decent grass and citrus bitterness. Fairly refreshing but not remarkable. Serviceable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: At the Bar Below, 6/4/14
Aroma: The nose is light and clean, some pale malts, herbal, and citrus hop notes
Appearance: It pours a copper color with a small off-white head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, light, balanced hop bitterness and sweetness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a solid mouthfeel, and drinks pretty easily
Overall, I found this to be an okay APA. Drinkable, but hardly memorable. from an overall perspective, my notes don’t say much beyond that...

Bottle. Little out dated so I’d have liked to snag a fresher batch. Getting light citrus not much else. Decent head. Not much of a hop presence anymore. Would’ve loved to have gotten to this sooner.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Age has not been kind with major hop fade, very meh tasting. Light handed citric and grassy notes, some pepper but you cant really get a nice malt balance. Just seems to watered down and metallic. The session beer was more forceful. Another crap offering from the Baldwinsville NY A-B plant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper with ample off white head. Aroma is a blend of light malt and pine/grapefruit/citrus. Taste is a slightly bitter malt/hop. Bitter finish. Pretty decent APA here.

From the 12 f,l. oz. bottle. The pour is quite attractive with its copper-amber color and smallish cream colored head. But the head lingers, And so does the carbonation. The aroma has a definitive caramel malt character with only the basic hop notes one would expect from the style. Pretty general. Decent enough medium body. The taste leans more to the malty characters and those tend to be robust. Stylewise? It is about what you should expect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Clear, medium amber colored with a finger or so of creamy tan foam that lasts a bit before reducing to a froth. Plenty of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a slight sticky lacing.
Aroma: Lightly floral, grassy hops, slightly citrus.
Taste: Hoppy but mildly so as compared to some other APA’s thatch I have had. Piney and grassy.
Mouth Feel: Medium bodied and creamy. A little slick with a lasting finish.
Overall: A really nice beer. I wish it was a year round offering.
