Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2010
12 oz bottle picked up in a small grocery in downtown Philly. Very light yellow pour with a smallish white head. Light floral hops aroma. An almost Belgian spiciness that I didn’t expect at all comes through. Lemony, a little barnyard funk as well. Good, but not a traditional APA by any means.

JakeG (20) - Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Pours a hazy bubbly orange-yellow with a small white head. Nice lacing. Aromas of citrus hops, fruit, malt and spices. Tastes very juicy and citrusy -- quite refreshing. Medium bodied.

12oz bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Floral, toasty, some citrus, and fruity.

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy blond color. A beer rooted in the quality of the malt, and ethereal for its freshness; delicate hops, the mouthfeel has a gentle sweetness, the final is bitter and long.
Excellent.

WABeerFiend (301) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.29.14. A: Flat. No head or lacing at all. Somewhat opaque orange. Sediment is there. S: Corn or grain first. Citrus, orange, lemon. It’s very sour. T: Burnt biscuit, bitterness, tangerine. M: No carbonation. O: The bottle read that this was unfiltered so I couldn’t use that as a gauge for how old this was. At any rate, this was simply terrible. 3 sips into it and it was a drain pour. The was one of the most unbalanced beers ever. It was undrinkable.

Sarlacc83 (1171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2014
On tap at the brewery. A: Cloudy orange color with a foamy white head. N: Biscuit, pine, oranges, some grapefruit. Toast. Not as complex as I would like. T: Sweet and lightly bitter. M: Light body, creamy carbonation, and light alcohol presence. O: A sweet throwback APA. Hard to rate this when every APA is an IPA in disguise, but it’s easy enough to drink.

Art (2094) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Picked up a bottle without noticing the date. Ended up being a year old. Pours a clear golden yellow with a full white head. Floral aroma with slight oxidation. Taste is slightly bitter and the "old hops" taste isn’t really there. Pretty good actually. Not the same beer but great base.

Danyel (1307) - Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Tap at Hair of the Dog. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, lager, lots of citrus. Taste is bitter, light, medium carbonation. Overall, good.

UDBeernut (2009) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Hazy golden yellow, head leaves a thick lacing coat. Nose of pine, dankness. Taste has enough malt before a nice wave of bitterness that lingers well after finish. Slightly syrupy mouth. Cool beans dorks.

BiddleBrau (1001) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Old bottle bought a case for $12... Went ’off’... more like funky. Hazy gold visible carbonation and thin white head. Noses must be in horse blanket. Flavor of a Belgian sour, funked out saison or gueuze. Tart and now a bit oxidized. Not a pale ale by a long shot but for $12 for a case, I got a decent american Belgian sour.
