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.

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.

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.

Draft. Great sweet malt/earthy, herbal hop balance. Well made.. Refreshing, without being heavy or alcoholic.. Good concentration for an APA. Decent finish. Good price point.. Solid everyday APA. This should be a standard everywhere. Recommended. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I found this up in north Minnesota on Labor Day. I was happy to have found this new IPA. It had a nice hop presence with some sweetness.

Cask at Toad in the Hole. Cloudy orange with fine sparkler head and tenacious lace. Mild warm waffle and bergamot aromas. Flavor is shimmeringly fresh with tangy grapefruit and sharp honey. Pretty nice medium bitter, grassy finish. Exemplary APA.

Aroma is an unassuming herbal hop and aged light caramel. Not real impressive at first. But the taste is a solid Pale ale. Nice malt and hop balance that is quite enjoyable. Although the label is a misser the beer is not. Try it!

Sample pour from 12 oz bottle is bright yellow and effervescent with ivory head. Prominent dry-hopped aroma that is citrusy, probably Cascade. Approachable malt backbone that is pale with minimal crystal). Crafted in body, malt levels and hop flavor, bitterness like a hoppy pale ale.
