3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from iTap-Soulard, enjoyed with a plate of pastrami and prime rib from Bogart’s during some Women’s World Cup games. Pours a clear gold with a small white head, pretty basic. Notes of grassy and floral hops, pale malts, peach, citrus fruit, and some faint dry herbs and hay. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and such a light mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to it but got the job done for my purposes.

Alas, not the hoppy type of APA. Kind of just your average beer. Not enough hops for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) Pours clear golden with a creamy white head. The aroma holds fresh roasted bread and orange marmalade up front alongside a mix of flowers, subtle fruit and almost buttery (yet clean) malt. Light oxidized ones the beer gets warmer. Light resinous and earthy on the nose. Maybe some old newspapers and Swedish snus. The flavour light sweet to dry, light to medium bitter and tiny acidic. Tones of citrus, light herbs, bread, cookies and a light whisper of metal from the hops. The mouthfeel is clean, round and light to medium carbonated. Watery finish with a light citric finish. Light to medium bodied.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber, cream head. Bitter hops, faint florals, citrus, and light malt. Easy to drink, hops are not overpowering, malts are doing their thing, and a lightly bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber color, translucent. Herbal aroma, neither strong nor clearly defined. Clean flavor... sweet malt base with complex hops bitterness. Earthy, chewy, interesting. Not your average APA. Good counter-balance to all those bright citrus interpretations of this style. Left Hand also gets bonus points for their great labels.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ Left Hand. Light golden orange appearance with an ivory head. Dull earthy hoppy, boring nose. A touch bitter flavor from some mild hops but pretty boring light beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Oliver Twist. Clear golden with a one finger high frothy white head that sticks pretty ok to the glass. Mild sweet malty and tropical fruity aroma with flowery piney hops. Caramel, mandarines, peach.
Taste is sweet pale caramel malty with some cookies, peach, oranges and a soft medium grassy bitterness that gets dry in the aftertaste.
Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
Pretty tasty and mouth watering but a bit weak in body which gives it a watery dull character after a while.
