Sweet, caramel aroma. A little heavier than expected but still fairly crisp. Hoppy, citrus. Fairly good balance.

Pours a clear bronze/ orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer.

Bottle. Drank this over at my folks house for the Old Manís 68th birthday (Happy birthday, Pop!). Yeah, so the beer... bit of cracker malt, fair amount of citrus and pine, medium bodied, mild bitterness. Not bad, but GIBC definitely makes a lot better beers than this one.

12 oz bottle from Lunds. Amber color with a large white head. Hops and malt aroma. Medium body. Smooth texture. Pine hops flavor. Some citrus. Kind of like gin added to a malty beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Iím still on the fence with this one. Started to like it more with each sample, but then it regressed on me. Balance is off or something...and for the style itís slightly sub-par. I try to put it more in the English Pale Ale category, which seems to better fit the profile vs. APA. Has a good clean hop finish, so maybe the malt-yeast combo isnít working for me. Has potential, but there are way better ones out there.

Pour is transparent copper with lots of tight light dusty brown head. Nose is fairly hoppy with hop resin, pine and citrus. Fair bit of malt in the nose, caramel and sticky. Taste is similar, sticky sugary caramel malt with hops behind, resiny and sticky with some citrus through the finish and a light bitterness. Body is a hint syrupy with assertive carbonation and a fairly dry finish.

I got this beer in a sampler case at a Costco. The aroma was good , You could definitely smell the hint of pine. The color was an orangish amber with an off white head. The taste had a piney flavor with a citrus and malt added in. The palate was good and I enjoyed the beer both while grilling brats and while eating the brats. I seem to like the piney tasting beers more in the warm weather than when itís cooler.
