solidfunk (5159) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Some light hops and OK overall balance. Just not a lot going on here. Not bad, just boring. Some light citrus. Malt is a little weird here. Tap at Houston airport.

AndresTM (361) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2014
The aroma is citrusy hoppy: orange, lime, grapefruit, some fresh-cut grass, weed, and some pine. This is all accompanied by a smack of malted grain and cereal. The taste largely follows, being moderately bitter, with a tart, citrusy sweetness toward the end. The mouthfeel is medium, with lively carbonation and a medium-to-light body. Lots of hop flavor without the astringency. Well done.

Hazy copper pour. Small off white head. Plenty of lacing. Slight orange hop aroma. Taste is malty and orange.

CanIHave4Beers (3556) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Some kind soul provided this... either in a bottle or a can, Iím not sure... but the soul was kind for goodness sakes.
Pours a pale golden with a small head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is piney and hop forward with some light caramel.

The flavor has a nice bitterness, itís lightly sweet with plenty of punch and fruity hop character. Itís got some grapefruit and pine without a lot of caramel distraction,

quaffable!

umich03jm (2708) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Can thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Mostly clear amber pour with a small head that fades to a nice thick ring and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat weak but pretty nice. Sweet fruit, honey, floral hops, and light grapefruit. Tastes decent. More grassy to mix with the citrus and floral hops but thereís a nice honey sweetness up front thatís nice. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium body. Pretty decent APA.

NachlamSie (2942) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pint at Snack Bar. Pours a hazy copper with a long lasting white head. Aroma is balanced with token grapefruity hops and a little caramel. Itís grassy and almost metallic, not off-putting though. Palate is medium. Reasonable bready malts are highlighted by approachable hops. There are faint tart flavors creeping around, but not much. Finish is quick. Reasonable.

lownote (247) - USA - NOV 30, 2014
Pours a golden color with a tiny bit of thick frothy head that hangs around from tap. Aroma is earthy. Taste is a balance of hops and sweet. Medium mouth feel.
