Thanks to Skyview. Golden pour with a clean white head. Dull floral hop aroma and earthiness. Taste is slightly floral as well with a slightly bitter and dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-tan and pretty cloudy with lots of sediment, despite a pretty careful pour. Head and lace are good. Smell and taste has lots of pine, grapefruit and fruity hops, a little bit of earthiness, and a caramel / nutty malt base. Good carbonation and nice medium body, lightly bitter piney aftertaste. A pretty darn good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head that had good retention and left good lacing. The aroma is floral hops, white bread, and mild hop resin. The flavor is floral slightly bitter hops up front and finishes with a sweet malty finish.

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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque golden orange color with a light head made of small bubbles. The beer has a bit of a hoppy smell, but it is very light. It also has a bit of a grassy scent to it (or is that just the name?). This beer has a bit of hoppy flavor to it, but tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA to me. However, for being a fairly light flavored beer it has a fair amount of body in the mouth. Overall this is an okay beer, but not a great IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice hazy golden with a lingering, frothy head. Aromas of floral hops, some citrus, and pine. Taste is medium bitterness with a nice hop bite and a slightly watery finish. Some malty sweetness pokes through once it warms up a little. Overall a pretty refreshing beer and a good representation of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange and flowers. Taste is interesting. Overload of citrus, some sour, almost like spoiled orange juice. Bitter finish. Medium body. I’m not really into this one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on draft at the Beacon Pub in Forest Park Illinois. Pours a cloudy light orange, with thick white fizz on top that has some nice retention. Tastes a little flat, but has some hop flavor that is enjoyable. A decent APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty good offering. Has a nice malty backbone and a nice blend of hops, but not the crisp cleanness I’d expect from a pale ale. Still refreshing. Huge amounts of carbonation though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A well established aroma of hops lets the nose know this beer is waiting to be tasted. The glass fills with a cloudy butterscotch solution that has no head only big bubbles that fasten themselves to the edge of the glass. This beer is thin and watery, yet it produces a moderately hearty hops taste that fades slowly leaving a mild nutty taste in the mouth.
