3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 11-20-2015 (Belmont Beverage, Time Corners, Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled APA pours a medium sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent amber body, very fizzy, lively, and fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is light citrus, floral, grassy, herbal, tropical fruits, toffee, spicy, light pepper, earthy, bready, and caramel malt. The flavor is sweet, moderate bitter, light herbal, spicy, earthy, tropical fruit, toffee, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is a very quaffable APA with a lot of aroma and flavor combined. It is not overly hoppy or bitter tasting and it worth trying. It is an APA that I would definitely drink again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, bread, resin, pine. Some citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of caramel, bread malts, light pine. Lots of sweet malts that aren’t all that well balanced with either hop flavors or bitterness.

Poured as part of a flight from draft at Haymarket Pub. Dark orange. Spicy bitter and fruity taste. Tangerines and then a bitter aftertaste too. Decent but hoped for better

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to pint at Greenbush. Looks solid; malty though. A hazy brownish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells sweet and hoppy with a notable caramel presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel that’s medium-bodied. An enjoyable fresh-hopped, single-hopped IPA.

Big hop nose on this beer. Ripe tropical fruit notes with a pleasing bitter dankness. Bright and boldly flavored.
