Pours a cloudy tan with a thick head. Hoppy aroma and a rich thick flavor. Goes down well. A little sour finish, but not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured clear copper color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium balanced finish of moderate duration. Another good drinkable brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is mild with barley and a tiny bit of apricot. The taste is sweet&biter with caramel and lightly spicy hops vying for domination. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes short and dry with some lingering spicy hops. overall: Another meh beer.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

On tap at the brewpub. Hazy copper pour. A very standard apa. Light hop flavors, a bit of fruit. A bit too sharp in the finish. Mediocre.

to me this beer is just very average. the flavor is too sharp, makes me hiccup. I’m sorry, but I’m just not feeling this beer right now. Give me a couple months and I’ll try it again, and see if I like it better then. i probably will never try it again though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful amber gold with a decent sized whitish head mostly dissipating. Nose is both hops and malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, taste is hoppy but not overly bitter. A mild pale ale, this one pairs well with pretzels and Dusseldorf mustard.

Nice hop smell and light golden amber color. The taste is similar to most Ipas, more bitter than normal.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Brewed and bottled by the Milwaukee Brewing Co.
Pours into my Milwaukee Brewing Co. pint glass with a murky copper color, rotten peach I’d say. The head is foamy and eggshell white and leaves some decent lacing.
There is not much smell to this one, then again the only APA that has ever had a smell to me was FFF Pride and Joy. They definitely need to dry ho this one. There is a little bit of hops and grain but it is pretty thin.
It has a mild resinous pine flavor, pretty much the same as the IPA but watered down. Some generic malt in there too.
Unfortunately after having FFF Pride and Joy all APAs seem average, all brewers looking to brew it need to up their games.

pale coppery orange with a white head.
it smells mostly of orange, grass, sweet grain and spicy hops.
caramel malt flavor stands out in front of citrus, earth, grass and a touch of spice on the finish.
medium bodied with a little extra oomph from the malt. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3
