3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL can thanks to BSchnab! Cloudy deep orange. Thick, rocky yellowish foam. Webby lace. Nose off the bat is bright citrus hops, fresh grapefruit, candied orange, mild butterscotch. Taste is a bit dusty, moving to heavy paper. Abrasive palate. Hmm, not my style of APA.

Draft. Light copper with small white head. Strong aroma of citrus and pine hops. Medium body with pine and citrus hops upfront and a nice balance of malt sweetness.

Great looking beer with a crisp taste to it. One of the first beers I’ve tasted since moving to the Twin Cities. Really enjoyed.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orange with good head and lacing. Aroma is floral, dank citrus, piney hops after pouring, with more biscuit malt coming out further down the glass. Taste is more pine and grass than citrus, along with some honey bready malts to balance. This APA has balance absolutely mastered, waking a great line between malts and hops. The bitter finish comes around, making sure the hops are never forgotten. Easy to drink, sessionable, leaves you wanting more.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is great, big upfront pine and citrus hop delight. Pale in color with a white lingering head. Tatse and mouthfeel is where this one takes a turn downward for me, I love hop forward beers but this one just is more abrasive feeling than smooth and balanced to me....almost with a metallic hint to it as well. Still a good beer, but just not my favorite pale. And really this tastes more like an IPA.
