3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had a few pints of this on tap at the Bad Apple in Chicago. I was really not expecting much out of this APA, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Came out in a tulip glass and had a nice light orange color with a good amount of carbonation and a one finger width white head. The aroma was very pleasant for an APA... it consisted of fresh hops, flowers, some light pine and some very light citrus hints. The taste is about the same with a good amount of fresh hops and floral coming out. It also left a pleasant bitterness in the back of my mouth. Extremely easy to drink and very enjoyable on a hot summer day. Impressive for a beer that I was not expecting much from...

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
473 mL can. Orange-gold with a very slight haze and a small but sticky white head. The aroma is all hops - mostly pineapple. Probably the best smelling APA Iíve had the pleasure of dealing with. There is a hint of grainy malt in the flavour, right at the start, but itís no more than a hint. Once again, itís all hops, with a little pine joining the pineapple. The only weakness is that this one thins out rather quickly - likely a product of the placing of all eggs in the hop basket. Not a serious complaint, however.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a golden colored body with a nice one finger white foamy head that mushroom caps and settles leaving some nice foamy speckled white lacing in the wake.
The smell has citrus, pine and malts strong up front coming through in a floral sense. There is a slight malt profile really more or less subdued only coming out after some warming.
The taste is mostly bitter with a decent refreshing quality coming out in a nice way. There is a slight warming sweetness coming through.
On the palate, its a light to medium, sorta crisp and sharp, sessionable, sticky citrus aftertaste with a dry finish.
Overall, this is a pretty good APA that I wish I could get in my distro, but makes a wonderful APA to have to break into Spring.

Golden yellow. Good effervescence, large head. Light body like a pale ale but with a strong bitter note -- not really much fruit or pine flavor, just kind of a uniform "dank" quality. Good.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very heavy in the aroma hops. Light in the flavor hops. Goes down very smooth, with what almost tastes like a slight vanilla hint.

Pours a nice gold color. Smells mildly of grassy notes and citrusy hops. Tastes of mild hops and grass. A great summer time beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark golden color hazy with a fluffy off white head. A dank smell with pine, a light flower sweetness. Taste is surprisingly smooth bitter with a little caramel malt backbone. Some dankness as well in the taste, a little honey. Very nice overall, crisp and enjoyable.

Every time I go to Chicago I bring home several cases. Excellant aroma with a creamy head, nice belgium lace on glass, smooth with an IPA kick. Goes down easily,
