From a 12 oz. bottle it has a honey color in the glass. Aroma has little cinnamon with a freshness to it from the hops. Taste is bitter with some pine. Almost similar to an IPA. Long finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from bottle into nucleated pint glass. Poured a deep amber color with some chill haze and creamy off-white head, long-lasting with a little lacing. Standard aromas and flavors of an American craft pale ale, but amplified. This one is darker, higher gravity, maltier, hoppier, and fruitier than usual, much more closely resembling a classic IPA. Hops are very grapefruity, likely Cascades or a similar American super-alpha variety. Tasty and highly drinkable.

A beautiful APA. The pour is cloudy golden orange with a thin off white head. Some good spotty lacing. The nose is hop forward with a big fruity note with definate tropical fruits present. A sweet caramelly malt in the middle with a impending hop bomb on the finish. Sweet and slightly resinous with lovely fruits such as grapfruit, apricot and peach. This is a great brew...very IPA esque.
