ben4321 (4330) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Location: 12 oz bottle from Bruisiní Ales, 1/2/15

Aroma: The nose is light and hoppy, herbal notes, a little citrus, and some earth
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a frothy off-white head and spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is along the same lines, with a clean light bitterness and a light sweetness
Palate: Light-medium bodied, easy drinking, a hint thin, soft carbonation, and a light dry finish
Overall Impression: Well the stupid hotel fridge half froze this beer, so I only had about 8 ounces. Thanks hotel fridge. Really, thanks. Anyway, this is a pretty decent, clean APA. It isnít super sweet or super hoppy. Very balanced. A little thin, but otherwise pretty decent.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle from Bruisiní Ales. Slight haze on a amber color with a bubbly white head. Earthy and floral hop aroma backed by a biscuit and caramel maltiness. Flavor is very similar with a lingering bitterness. Very simple, but enjoyable and a easy drinker.

emacgee (4208) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a soft amber tan with two fingers of creamy off white head. Lots of caramel in the nose. Some pine resin and citrus rind to balance with hints of burnt sugar on the edges. Flavor is a touch muddled and confused. I get bitter citrus and pine resin with some grassy notes. Other than that there is a ton of caramel malt. Way too much for the style. I found the same issue in the IPA.

OldGrowth (2821) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pint at Triangle Wine, Morrisville. Good aroma sweet, citrus yet a musty earthy scent. Great looking beer. nice brownish orange, has shine about it. Good head and lace. Bitter flavor. Medium body. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish that lingers. Itís good, has a harsh slightly like a cleaning product.and a real grapefruit finish. Itís fine. Nothing great but real drinkable
