3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up toffee and caramel maltage with spicy floral, citrus, and light fruity hops accenting.. quasi-sweet overall and well-balanced. The flavor had more of the toffee and some pale bready malts at the core, again with spicy floral and citrusy bitterness around.. warmth brought out mild oxidation.. tacky on the finish with lingering bitterness and warmth. Medium-bodied with OK balance on the palate.. a bit hotter than it should’ve been on the back.. decent one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma is sweet with malts, grains, earthiness, grass and pine. The taste is pretty smooth and refreshing with malts and a touch of biscuit to start and then moving toward a tasty thicket of pine, grassy and earthy hops. To midway and finish a tangy yet sweet up welling of citrus and esters joins in to provide added interest and balance. Nice pale ale.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours copper with a rocky white head. Another diacetyl bomb with some lemony hints on the nose. Tastes of sweet malt with some hints of citrus, but diacetyl overwhelms this one. Seems to be a pattern here.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. Copper-kissed gold with a thick light golden head that shows beautiful retention and lace. Aroma is hoppy with a sweet caramel background. Peach, melon, and pine hop flavours burst on the palate, followed by a creamy caramel malt base. Moderately bitter finish. This may be too malty for some hopheads, but I really loved the flavours here. A real standout APA in its balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber, burnt orange tinge, huge rocky off-white head, sticky lacing, little carbonation. Floral nose, slightly sticky, a bit of caramel accentuated hops. Light on flavor, slightly biting up front, but dies quickly. Somewhat sweet, but thin. Slight hop bitterness resonates through to the end, but its very soft. Decent pale, but a bit on the lighter side in regards to body. Fairly clean tho.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Barking Dog. Big sudsy head, nice cloudy amber pour. Clean crisp hop nose, tingly bitter attack and crisply hoppy all the way through the finish. Completely satisfying--great summer beer. 92F today, and that’s hot for here...if this beer’s watery, bring it on. Perfect hot weather session beer.
