Thechasm442 (300) - Wilmington, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2012
On draft in a pint glass. Pours a reddish amber with a off white head and decent lacing. Aroma is grass, caramel, and light citrus. Taste is light grapefruit and orange flavors. Also some fresh summer lawn. Mouthfeel is light and slightly sticky. Pretty sessionable.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a soft white head that leaves lacing in the glass. Aroma is sweet and a little funky, with some hops in the background. Flavor is sweet and a little funky, with some bitterness in the background. The finish is sweet, and a little funky.

Bottle at a friend’s house. Very nice, sweet taste, slight bitter aftertaste. Worth revisiting.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - MAR 24, 2010
A copper beer full of yeast floccules with a small white head that doesn’t last but leaves some lacing. Aroma is faint floral hops, some citrus, with a yeasty breadiness. Flavor has vague hoppiness, some malt in the background, and some hop bitterness. Think mouthfeel. Pretty weak sauce.

jackfrost9p (258) - California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Decent, but not great. Very smooth, but lack flavors. Nice grassy aroma with hops and citrus notes. Would have like a little more bite...

This beer was pretty good had a hint of hoppiness but not to overpowering like the apa better than ipa

bdunhill (244) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2011
With a nice aroma and beautiful hazy amber color and a thick white head. This APA has a nice fruity pine flavor that stays on your palate.

dukeredhair (242) - California, USA - JUL 23, 2010
This is a good beer. It’s not a kick your butt hop bomb but it doesn’t claim to be. It’s sweet and well balanced by the hops. It looks good and goes down easy.

DJC (238) - USA - DEC 30, 2006
Light copper/amber body, with a thin head. Hardly any lacing. Toffee, malt, and some hops in the aroma. Those same characteristics appear in the flavor profile, as well, but the hops are more pronounced. Not as bitter as it probably should be for this style, however. Carbonation is a bit on the fizzy side, but certainly not upsetting. This is a refreshing and very drinkable beer.
