BadAprilia1000 (260) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Expired Bottle by about two weeks. Aroma is very sublte, hop character is diminished quite a bit. Taste is nice though, very slight citrus and pine. Will have to get a fresh one.

czar (4292) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
(near suggested consumed by date) pours slightly hazy bright golden-orange with a small creamy white head, some retention and lacing. spicy herbal tea leaves, oranges, peaches and apricots - almost candied and lightly sour-ish fruitiness, grass and pepper, citrus, hint of cardboard. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily assertive yet balanced herbal-grassy-citrusy finish. a fresher bottle would enhance objectivity here. a nicely crafted not-over-the-hill apa.

Pours a copper color with a thin tan head. Aroma is sweet, malty. Taste is equally sweet with a bit of citrus pine and a rather bad metallic aftertaste.

Transfer from BA review on 8-29-12 - Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – Served a clear orange-amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to give a lighter amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma was of a bready and malty base with good hint of chop aromas. The hops were quite well done, with them being a nice blend of a grapefruit, lemon, pine and floral nature. Taste – The taste begins of a malt base. The malt is lightly roasted with a good bready taste. Some lighter hop flavors of a grapefruit nature are present right up front and are mixed with a more caramel like sweetness. Soon however other hop flavors of a pine and earthy nature greet the tongue. While these enter, some of the caramel fades, leading to a bittering of the taste overall. In the end the citrus grapefruit seems to resurge leaving a slightly hoppy and light roast malty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was medium in terms of creaminess as well as in terms of its carbonation Fairly easy to drink, but lacking in some complexity. Overall – A good tasty easy drinking brew with a good balance of malt and hop flavors.

Bright light orange with a slightly tan foaming head. Flavor and aroma are pine sap and orange. Tastes a little better than it smells thanks to a backing of sweet caramel flavored malts. Classic APA, I could see this used as a reference for the style just as much as Sierra Nevada.
