Pint can thanks to Ed. Pours a clear orange color with a medium sticky white head. The aroma is grassy, some soap and citrus hops. The flavor is a smooth and easy citrus, light bitterness, sweet and very easy to drink. Quite nice. Reminds me a bit of Wildfire Pale Ale from Uinta.

Thank you Adam for shipping me this want. I poured the can into a Sam Adams glass it gave off a wonderful big white head that sat on top of a clear golden colored elixir. The hop presence hits you first in the nose. You get a ton of citrus and resin character coming right at you, not much in the way of malts at all. In the taste it reminded me of an IPA so I think if you are looking for a balanced brew this isn’t for you but if you are looking for a hop bomb I highly recommend it. It had a good amount of carbonation so was light and crisp in the mouth. To me this would be a great summer BBQ brew if it was local and available that is Serving type: bottle

really fresh pine, almost metallic, grapefruit, lightly earthy and cheesy. Flavor is a bit less fresh, dry with lingering bitterness but a bit undercarbonated. Nice stuff, very well hopped and consistently attenuated for an apa.

Narnad (1451) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pours a very hazy, golden color with a thick, bubbly white head. Aroma has a very pungent piny and citrus hops nose. Nose overall is very hoppy, dry hopping worked great for this brew. Flavor has a very in your face hop presence. Strong citrus orange combines with a lesser piny and earthy hoppiness at the end. A very light pale malt presence show itself very briefly in the middle. Great lacing on the glass, light body modest carbonation, dry feeling in your mouth. Overall a very tasty beer. The hops smell and taste are absolutely awesome. Tastes very, very fresh out of the can. Thanks to JMerritt for this can.

Very nice, sweet hoppy nose, tons of citrus. Taste is lightly sweet, lightly biter, some light honey notes, some grapefruit and tangerine. Very sessonable and refreshing.

Very hoppy APA. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow with nice head and good carbonation. Aroma has lots of pine and hops. Very herbal and effervescent. Lightly sweet flavor with herbal, grassy hops. Very bitter finish. Decent beer.

16oz can, thanks to mowz: Pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh floral light citrus hoppy nose with a touch of pale malt. Starts with decent body and light malty sweetness with a good balance of citrusy bittering hops before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty smooth, balanced and drinkable.

Had this a couple times now and it’s a knockout as far as APAs go. Hazy deep blonde pour with a lively head. A fresh looking frothy beer. Very fragrant dry hops in the nose, ranging from grassy to floral and citric, with a bit of yeast floating throughout. Big mouthfeel, prickly and full, which complements the beer. Flavors are bold and unapologetically hoppy, with tons of dry citrus at the fore. Enough malts in there for balance, but it was so dry that it was almost like a cross with a pils in places. Really flavorful, well balanced beer.
