Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thanks! Hazy bright golden color, large fluffy white head, good lacing. Aroma of hay and white pepper. Taste is straightforward bitter, but not too bitter, with a dry finish. Decent stuff.

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.

On tap at the Milwaukee Ale House Brew Pub. Poured a medium amberish-copper color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of grapefruit, citrus and pine. Had a lightly sweet balance to the nice hoppy finish.

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.

On tap at the Milwaukee Brewing Co with ground hops on top. Poured a hazy gold with a tan head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice pine note with backing grass and grain. Flavor has a good amount of grass notes with a hint of pine and a grain backbone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8/11/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! Light, clear amber pour that reminds me of pumpkin liqueur. A fluffy white head sticks around on top as a ring and a skin quite well. The aroma is mostly sweet malts, earth, and soap - not anything super awesome going on. The flavor is again very prominent in sweet malts with a bitter kick, but not a lot of distinct hop flavor. Eh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Ale House. Poured a clear medium amber with a dusting of white head and some nice lacing. Aroma picked up sweet caramel and toffee maltage, oranges, and grapefruits.. nice components that were decently blended... sweeter as it warmed. Sweet caramel and grapefruit in the flavor with pine and floral bitterness... rather simple... back-end found sharper diacetyl and bitter notes that were not as pleasant. Medium-bodied. Smooth front of the drink transitioned rather poorly to the sharper, bitter back-end. Just OK.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light copper with a puffy white head. Sweet fresh hoppy and sweet pale malt aroma. Body has a nice thickness to it with good complexity and hop flavor. Fresh crisp clean finish with a light fruitiness. A very nice APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight on tap at the brewpub (Milwaukee, WI). Pours a well hazed golden amber pour, some fiery orange glow to it with a decent sized frothy whitish head that dies to a spotty film, thicker ring lacing overall. Aromas are light oranges and lemons, touches of grass, florals, and crisp bready malts. Lacks a little bit of pop, but smells nice overall yet simple. Initial is lighter bodied with touches of dry floral bitter hops up front, some grass. Middle moves quickly into some crisp bready and cereal grains, lighter. Backend offers more bitterness, touches of lemons and subtle notes of grapefruit, citrus, and grassy/floral elements. Fairly clean with some lingering bitter hops. Pretty enjoyable, lighter fare with a small kick of bitter American hops into the finish.

This is a classic pale ale. It is full of tart hops that bring out grapefruit flavors and some bitterness. A touch of malt.
