Along with some citrus there is a definite caramel edge to the nose and palate. The palate shows some dryness but also a sweet midpalate with a touch of chocolate. Nice beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light cappuccino foam coloured head : lacing is pretty good, average for a APA ... light golden colour .. light rust hop pine smell ... taste is nice, maybe a bit muddled .... "if you find a cheaper lion, you must be in africa" ... the 6 % is quite well hidden so its worth a try but there are better APA’s...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle: Pours a very light brown/amber, with very thin white head. Smelled a little citrus, a little carmel. Medium bitter aftertaste, lingering hops on the palate. Refreshing but not overall too much else to say about it.

Pours the color of dirty pennies. Smells a little citrus-y. A nice hop flavor and bitter finish make this a refreshing beer on a summer day.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a nonic. Transparent, light amber color with a a beige 2 finger head. Great retention and lacing. Aroma is of faint tropical citrus hops and not much else. Flavor is mildly hoppy up front, with some grassy twang. The hops then meld into a shortbread cookie-like maltiness. There’s also a bit of a lemon curd note in the finish. Mouthfeel is good, drinkability is high. An interesting and clearly tropical take on the APA style.
