3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy amber, average head. Grapefruit aroma. Surprisingly soft and very hoppy - loads of Cascade here. Dryish and very drinkable with lasting intensely bitter finish. One-dimensional (which can be said about all beers in the style), but tasty and thirst quenching.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy amber body with medium beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, lightly floral. Taste is medium sweet, floral, fruity (cantaloupe). Definitely hoppy, but not very bitter. Light/medium watery body. Quite quaffable. Great summery beer, and I could also see it as a great starter beer for transitioning newbies to the real stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a large, rocky, vanilla head. Terrific retention. Malty aroma with notes of yellow grapefruit, orange blossom honey and sweat. A bit sweet with notes of honey and lightly roasted malts up front. Tangy hops kick in on the backside for decent balance and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with mild carbonation. Just a touch too thin. Tangy, lightly bitter finish. Seems to be more of an EPA than an APA, IMHO.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark golden, with medium head and good lacing. Very nice hoppy aroma. Tastes extremely hoppy, with a good balanced malt element. Finishes smooth, crisp, with hops, floral, and slight citrus tastes. This one surprised me. It is absolutely excellent. Hop heads rejoice! I can't wait to try the New Holland IPA later this evening!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange color with a medium thin white head. Thin lacing. The aroma is floral hops and citrus. Medium body with a nicely bitter character throughout. Hops, citrus and pine are all evident. It contains just a touch of sourness toward the end but nothing too bad. The finish is nicely hopped with a pinch of malt. Overall this is a solid APA.
