3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours nicely with a decent straw haziness and a nice white one finger head and leaves some decent lacing on the glass but my particular beer was loaded with sediment. The smell is okay with a mild citrus bitterness to it, somewhat orange and white pepper scent. The taste is decent with a nice bitter citrus hoppiness to it. The mouthfeel is okay with a bitterness lingering and decently carbonated. Overall, an average APA but the beer seems to have more chracteristics of a pale ale than an APA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is yeast, citrus, mildly grainy malts and a small hint of tropical fruit. The flavor is citrus, fruit, hop resin notes, light kiwi/lime, tropical fruit, malts and (for an APA) a very bitter finish. One of the better new APAs I’ve had lately.

A good mild ipa...good flavor and slightly fruity...flavor seems to get a bit milder as you drink which I like...gets a bit more harsh as it warms

12oz bottle. Pours a pale golden color with a small head that falls to a small ring. The nose is mostly caramel malt, with a small blast of citrusy hops. The flavor is also fairly lack-luster with slight sweet caramel malts with just a hint of sweet citrusy hop in there. Medium body with, moderate carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a very thick white head on it. Nose has some nice floral tones to it with nice grainy notes coming through underneath. Taste is only slightly bitter and has a lot of grains coming through. Pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy blood orange, with a one-inch head and nice lacing, hoppy and citrus nose, medium-bodied malt backbone, slightly lacking malt depth, finishing a bit dry. All in all, a pretty good beer and true-to-type in the APA style.
