1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Cloudy amber pour. A huge head...a gusher actually. Aroma smells of old stale cardboard. And maybe some rocky dirt. Flavor isnt much better. More cardboard and nastiness. DRAINPOUR.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2010-07-03. Lightly hazy orange body, small creamy off-white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is modestly bitter throughout, light citrus hops (tropical, hints at floral, lemon), mild lingering tangerine. Mild malt is a bit odd/grainy and does not always play nicely with the hops. Aroma of muted citrus seeds, off-putting overtones that are not quite bile/sweat, more likely an odd variation on resiny/leafy hop character. Average to light palate. Odd. On tap at Hales, Seattle

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy orange with an epically large head. Damn. Perpetual head retention... Good lacing. Aroma is caramel, citrus and leafy, vegetal hops. Taste is citrus hops and caramel. Medium bodied.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured medium ambery-golden with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up toasty pale malts with accents of honey, pine, and a touch of cardboard. The flavor was a little tart on the fore with fruity character and piney bitterness present.. pale, rather generic base to it.. spicy and bitter again on the back-end, showcasing pine and earthy hoppage. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. nice and bitter for an APA, but not all that enjoyable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, grapefruit, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very straightforward and basic. A bit too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Well, a 12-oz bottle right now, but probably a couple dozen other times in the last 20 years, too. Why I’ve not rated this heretofore is a bit of a mystery to me. But here we go. Pours a hazy burnished dark gold with a thin little splotchy film of suds on top. Intermittent drippy lace. Mild grassy corn nutty nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, nuts, and grass on the mid palate. Very mild and easy drinking APA...probably not hoppy enough to really be an APA, but that’s alright. Good little beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours golden, slight haze, small fizzly white head, lively carbonation, with spotty lacing. Malt, grains, and cereal aroma, with a hint of wet dog. Malty, a touch sour, with some subtle fruity flavor. Medium body and mouthfeel. Finishes quick, semi-sweet, lingering malts. Decent, but not very crisp or hop oriented as I would have liked.
