4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 Hazy in appearance with an excellent, juicy hop aroma. The flavor is very much what a great APA is supposed to be, great hoppiness mixed with a good maltiness and a juiciness that balances the dryness. Overall this was slightly more bitter than other APAs, giving this a bit of uniqueness to complement the rest, making this among the best APAs.

Tap at Churchkey. Poured a lightly hazy orange with a weak, white head. No lace. Mochi, dough, flour aroma. Taste is bitter, mild cheesy hoppiness, sticky syrup, saltwater, weak nutty hops. Eh. Probably not what was intended.

On tap at Churchkey. Pours a clear amber with a decent white frothy head. Nose and flavor both hold solid spicy and herbal hops, some grass, and a touch of tangerine citrus qualities. Palate has light to medium body and decent hop bitterness. Good, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic
Rather light aroma is a bit suprising: lots of wheat and some fruity hops. Flavour has lots of grapefruit-like hops and some wheat. Gets more sweet when warms up. Slightly weird, but good, hoppy and refreshing pale ale.
