2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy red orange with pretty big yellow-tinged white head. Smells of old citrus hops, watery bread. Taste is at first a bite of hops with a nice malt backbone, spices noticeable, tastes almost wheaty, which gives way to a sort of sourness, and finally watery hops on the finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with soapy offwhite head. The aroma is actually rather nice--grapefruit, tangerine, chrysanthamum, vanilla, lemon zest, and a surprisingly evident yeastiness, all over a sort of white raisin sweetness. The flavor lets me down a little bit after the nice nose. There’s a stale toast note right off the bat that turns me off. Then yeast and lemon zest kick in, along with some saltine cracker and papery hops. A slight bitter edge marks the finish, leaving a grapefruit and cardboard aftertaste. Drinkable, but not great.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ TacoMac, Crabapple. Deep orange color. White head. Pours with very little haze. Does not appear to be an Unfiltered Offering. Decent lace. Flavor of sweet pale malt. Crisp, light, and refreshing. Finishes with a distant mild citrus hop. Basic APA. Aroma has a touch of biscuit and very light orange zest. Forgettable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Drank one month after expiration. Hazy orange, with a fluffy head. Earthy seawater aroma. Odd, but not sure if that if due to over-aging. Mild lemon-orange citrus tones in the pretty solid hop bill. Not unlike a BPA in taste, but really misses in the mouthfeel. A nice creamy, yeasty touch keeps it well balanced and drinkable. Certainly a fairly unique offering, sort of a BPA and APA hybrid. Grows on you.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a cloudy copper-gold with lots of tiny sediment and a large fluffy white head -- looks pretty good. Mild aroma has a hint of "metal", light floral hops, caramel malt and some vegetal notes. Flavour’s a bit mild but still somewhat enjoyable: Clean, grainy and a bit fruity along with light hops and malt. Average bodied. Just O.K., it needs more character and less grain. Drinkable though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy amber color, slightly darker than Harpoon’s UFO Hefeweizen, with a frothy white head. Aroma mostly consists of citrus and pine with only a hint of the yeast’s earthiness. Light bitterness. Light body with average carbonation and a clean, crisp finish. I was pleasantly surprised by this one.
