Easy drinking, nice balance. Light body but overachieving in flavor. Would like to get it out in Chicago

Draft. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Large vacuous bubbles, big khaki head. Candied oranges, lemons, limes and some tropical fruit Smells sugary sweet and appealing - honey. Some flinty minerality pairs up to a pretty strong hop smack for a pale ale. Couple that with the great aroma and you've got a pretty nifty pale ale with a nice cascade hop kick and nutty/biscuity Munich malt backbone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks Scott. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a light foamy lacing sticking around the sides of the glass decently. The smell had a semi - sweet malty citrus over top of a light piney bitter hops. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to blend nicely. A dry sweet citrus aftertaste leads to a decent sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation good for the style and for me as it’s not too sharp. Overall, I say this was a decent APA that I could have again.

Light orange color, crown of haystack lace. Aroma is chlorine hops. There is an alkaline, metallic component to the aroma. Some cooked vegetable/broccoli. Flavor is very soft hops; it’s from a can so they should be relatively well-preserved. There is a touch of perfume, but it’s a little too pillowy. The yeast is front-and-center. Feels soft and pillowy. It’s not an unpleasant beer, but it is a very weak beer.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought dough, bread, slight caramel into a bit of yeast, touch of grass and floral notes, touch of orange peel as well. Taste was a mix of orange, red fruit, some floral notes into a bit of biscuit, caramel, slight dough, hints of spice, finishing bitter.

Obfuscate (227) - Minneapolis, - MAR 14, 2015
Drinkable enough but many hoppier, crisper APA’s out there. Too much graininess, grass on the back end. Not bad

Pours a clear coppery amber color with just off-white head. Citrus, floral notes, and a little grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice balanced malt profile, but not too much. Good amount of hops for a pale ale.

12oz can@ trailer. Clear amber color with ivory head. Tropical fruit, passion fruit, melon, citrusy aromas. Light bodied with average carbonation. Fruity, citrus, tropical fruit, lightly sweet pale malt flavors with a mild polycarbonate taste to finish---not too bad.

onceblind (5152) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Brilliant clear copper with a foamy sticky white head. Really nice nose of bright floral resins, a bit of sweetness, and a nice subdued grapefruit/orange rind tone. The flavor is really swell with a bright floral bitterness right up front that isnt offensive and is in fact kinda flavorful, followed by a load of caramel and biscuit malt, finishing with a bit of biscuity toffee and pale malt with a flavorful grassy and floral hop tones. Really nice. Quaffable and complex at the same time.

Clear orange, off-white frosty lasting, lacing foam head. Great hoppy aroma, somewhat less bitter in taste, but still a very good beer. Light citrus tones. Lasting aftertaste, some roast. (Velp 201502)
