3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured carefully to a 1/2 pint taster so as not to rouse the light sediment at the bottom, but still hazed with a orange/gold color, good persistence to the silky, off white, bubbles & cream head, and coating ribbons, waves, and spots of lacing. The aroma was expressive, with mid-fruit as peach, citrus as grapefruit & orange, some resin, soft grain & caramel, and malty sweetness. The flavor was mellower, and added a moderate hop bitterness with a nice blend of citrusy, earthy, rind-like, and lingering characteristics. Smooth malt to balance, with a medium body. Whether a mild IPA label, or as a strong APA, I found it flavorful, crisp finishing, and very quaffable.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Pours deep orange gold. Some tiny specs of suspended protein or yeast (not sure if this is usual). Not much of a foam head. Very sweet and citrusy/spicy nose. Has a medium body and tastes much less sweet than I thought it would. Much more if a lite caramel and bready note and a very bitter finish...almost too bitter for my liking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A finger and half of head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
The aroma is grapefruit and lemon with a milk note; interesting but good.
The taste has a great balance of the malt sweet and hop bitterness. The bitterness comes through as lemon and pine.
The texture is smooth and soft with moderate carbonation. Incredible.
A great APA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer’s aroma is hoppy, and the color of the beer is a cloudy reddish orange with a minimal white head and sediment. This beer is of a medium bitterness with some umami, and the combination of the medium-full body, sticky yet creamy texture, average carbonation, and the bitter finish do combine nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep orange amber with a medium creamy off white head that laced and tons of floaties. Aroma of fresh squeezed oranges, some sweet caramel malts. Overall the nose is hoppy but a bit sweet. Flavor of again fresh squeezed orange and grapefruit juice. Some of the malt sweetness is there, but overall this drys out pretty nicely while adding a nice malty finish to this nicely hopped APA.

Pours a cloudy orange. Nice aroma of grapefruit/citrus. Not all that much going on with the taste. Some of the grapefruit comes through, but it is a pretty simple, easy drinking beer
