2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Wine Warehouse, CHO.
Pours slightly hazy peach-amber with an inch of off-white head.
Smells of citrus and pine.
Tastes of funky citrus, coffee, bread, hairspray, pine, and ash. Odd. Very odd.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer pored a very pale yellow color with a huge foamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was piney and earthy hops. The flavor was bitter, tart and tangy with notes of piney, resinous and earthy hops. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Hazy gold/Amber with the biggest fluffy white head I've ever seen. Totally out of control. Aroma is citrus and grass. Taste adds a nice tangerine note. Pillowy creamy mouthfeel with a bit of prickly carb. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a slightly hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, pine and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Overall a well-executed APA.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can from Caponeís. Pours turbid, bright orange, with 2-finger, frothy off-white head. Nose is an intense medlet of resiny hops, tangerine, pineapple. Tastes hoppy, piney and resiny, with flavors of pineapple, orange zest, black pepper, and a complex and juicy finish that pops all over your taste buds. This is a Goddamned fine APA that leaves most IPAs in the dust. For the semantics assholes, letís assume Iím calling this as IPA. It still kicks the ass of 90% of the IPAs Iíve quaffed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: clear amber orange going cloudy as the full can is poured; head is white, fluffy and dense, with lingering lacing. Aroma: good nose of citrus, marmalade, light spice, caramel malts, light toast and pine. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: lasting citrus and pine bitterness, balanced by a nice, toasty sweet malt spine. Notes: Perfectly balanced APA. Good palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy orange color with a white creamy head. Light hop aroma. Dry hop flavor in the mouth, good mouth feel. Dryness carries to the back of the mouth. I felt it was OK.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Can: Thanks, Chris. Pale straw & amber gradient from top to body; cloudy throughout & capped with a soapy, tan-ish head. Tiny sediment floats all around the body. Raw, unabashed hop aroma. Reminds me of my very first homebrew, a Centennial & Columbus IPA. Spicy, floral, earthy, & kind of "dirty" in a strange way. Back-end with light citrus rind. A little herbal. Sharp bitterness up-front on the tongue fading into a hop profile; raw, herbal, ashy, floral, & wet. A touch of white pepper covered grapefruit peel with a finish of mild pine & herbal leaves. A touch of tangerine, too, perhaps. Decent pale ale, maybe just a touch unrefined.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 12 oz. can. Slightly hazy amber pour with a solid off white head. Great retention. Citrus and fruit nose with notes of orange, orange blossom, and honeysuckle. Great malt to hop balance. Slight honey and graham cracker sweetness up front balanced by plenty of citrusy hops. Highly drinkable. Solid brew.
