3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Nice floral hop aroma backed by some pale malt. Light amber color with a minimal off-white head. Some citrus aroma as the glass approaches the lips. A bit thin in body, and mild in carbonation. The flavor is citrus, with a touch of grapefruit. The malt is not participating strongly. The finish is dry, even a bit astringent. Nice persisting bitter. Very nice in the hophead sense.

Pours hazy deep dark straw with off-white head. Nose is juicy wet hops, tropical fruit. Tastes piney hoppy, with a solid malt bill, and some grapferuit, tangerine, and piney notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. I was a little suprised when I prepared to open the bottle when I noticed it was a little over half full. Seeing as there was not a 1/2 bottle of spilled beer in my suitcase when we came back, I am assuming it was bottled that way. Sure enough, it was not flat or anything - just not full! Anyway, the beer pours a murky light orange color with a medium white head that did not last too long. Nicely bitter aroma. Flavor is hoppy but not real strong (at least in terms of West Coast style APAs). Decent malt balance and the finish is crisp and refreshing. I'd get this again next time I am in CA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Rich amber beer with a nice off-white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus hop flavor with moderate bitterness. Enough malt to back it, but a bit on the hop side of balanced. Clean and easy to drink. Lingering citrus flavor. Slight grassiness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours gold with a white head. Smells of yogurt, straw, grapefruit and a bit sugary. Taste is of oranges and caramel. One of the best APAs Iíve had to date.

Bright orange, thick off-white head with early scant lace. Very fruity aroma of nectarines and melons. Caramel malt and citrus resinous hops, surprisingly little of the fruit aroma translates onto the palate. Very flavourful and very sessionable!
