3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear light amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Fruity, earthy hops with black tea, kiwi fruit and light oak in the nose. Perfectly balanced flavor with moderate sweetness and bitterness and a touch of tropical fruit. Medium-bodied with a sawdust mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. Finishes fruity and dry. A big SHOUT goes out to MI2CA for sending the bottle my way!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with atpayne (thanks!). This one initially poured all head. Eventually settled down to a medium amber color. Aromas of grapefruit, wet grass, caramel, and a little on the floral side. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit and floral. I expected it to be over carbonated with the way this one was pouring, but it wasn’t.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark copper bronze with a half inch thick off-white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, much as an APA should be, but not as intense as I prefer. Body has a subtle dry caramel malty presence and bittering hop flavor. Finishes crisp and dry with a touch of grapefruit. A decent APA, thanks atpayne!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of Kahn's in Indy. This beer is a bright amber color with a thin but lasting eggshell white head. Thin lacing all the way to the bottom. The aroma is really nice citrus and hops. Medium-bodied and easy to drink with a solid hops flavor that is both floral and citrusy. The finish is fairly bitter and lasting. Overall I am rather impressed with what a good APA this turned out to be.
