3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the pub. Orange color with a nice off-white head and a nose full of citrus hops. Caramel sweetness and better body than the Soloman Juneau, but still dominated by the hop. There is a noticable hop burn on the tongue. Better with food.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2006 Poured to a bronze/copper colored body with a rocky white head and excellent lacing. The aroma has some good APA characteristics. Pine and grapefruit hop with some decent malt. However, the aroma is a touch weak. Perhaps it’s the glassware/bar atmosphere. The flavor is nicely hoppy, some malt. Typical APA. The palate is rich and full, smooth. A good beer in the APA family.

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

Binny’s bottle enjoyed after a day at the Rockford Discovery Museum chasing kids. Way over carbonated. Seriously nothing but soapy head when poured. Good flavor when you can find it under the bubbles. I think my chest might explode!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Thirsty Troll Brewfest
I’ve seen this place a few times at the Great Taste of the Midwest and when driving through Milwaukee. I’ve never had their beers until now. It turns out they make a decent product. It wasn’t earth shaking but I would certainly be glad to have a place like this locally.
Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy copper body had a slight off white head and minimal carbonation. The scent of wheaties, malts and hops formed a pleasing collection of aromas.
Flavor / Palate - The first sip reminded me of hopped up sour mash. Caramel, bitterness and peat followed. The spruce finish was a nice touch. The body was a little thin. I found this an ideal summer beer.

This pours cloudy pale orange into the glass and is topped by a small soapy head. Bright citrus up front, this wanes to an earthy, grassy bitterness balanced by a slight sweetness. Soft but vigorous carbonation suits the light texture, making for a drinkable beer that is not at all watery. Some lemon notes come out in the finish as well as perhaps just a slightly overstrong amount of bitterness. This is almost a home run. I could see some slight adjustments making this really excellent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Clear light amber pour with a thin bubbly white head. Crackery biscuity malt on the nose, some mild citrus and herbal hopping, and a bit of caramel malt. Taste is very light--a crackery malt backbone with more yeast prominence than I’d expect, and a light citrus hopping. Very subtle, but balanced. Nothing bombastic about this one. And though I like my APA’s a bit cleaner, this is still pretty tasty. Carves out its own niche, for sure.

Sample @ Brewery. Sweet citrus hop aroma. Dark copper body color. Good citrus grapefruit flavor. Little sourness on the palate. Good refreshing beer should of had a full glass of this one.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
a cloudy copper yellow hugh w/ a thin white head w/ great lacing... the smell was grapefruit (light) and pine needles.. the palate was thin and carbonated. The flavor was mildly hoppy w/ a sort of stale finish overall I was unimpressed and wouldn’t drink this again.
