Bronze, herbal citrusy nose. Rich pithy bitterness, gets chewy fast even with all that bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from SuzyGreenberg - thanks Ben. Pours a luminescent peachy amber with a 2 finger foamy off-white head. ? Grassy/herby aroma over mild caramel. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Caramel is light, and the flavor is like Imperial Pilsner. Good stuff. It’s definitely bitter. Good stuff. Repeat indefinitely.

"Clean and crisp are right on for this one. A crisp hop bite follows the well balanced and floral aroma and slightly sweet flavor. Not bad overall. Clean and bright if not too deep."

Tap at Commons Santa Monica. Thanks Dedicatedtofun! Clear orange amber. Medium white foam. Good lacing. Nose is sweet strawberry, orange peel, hints of ruby red grapefruit. Taste is dark chocolate bitter, long rindy bitters. Fresh though with tart ruby red grapefruit. Actually pretty legit.

Bottle that RiversideAK threw in as a bonus on a recent growler swap. Pours a just hazed orange amber with a large beige head. Crisp hops, light grain and malt. Citrus and spicy malt. Big earthy grapefruit, touch of sweetness and a bit of alcohol on the finish.

Bottle, shared by Parksy. Light golden, hazy, medium white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy, faintly of dried flowers. Lightly biscuity pale malt structure, grassy bitter hops, hint of metal. I would swear this is a pilsener, and a decent one at that!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks again, Jason! Pours a cloudy orange-amber with fine sediment and a massive, rocky off-white head that leaves a shitload of lacing in the glass. Aroma of floral hops, perfume, wet grains, dank leaves, minerals, and toasted sugar. Flavor of caramel malts, floral hops, mild grapefruit citrus, leaves, biscuit, and minerals. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, crisp mouthfeel and dry finish. Mild carbonation. Might be a bit past its prime, but a good APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange-amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is light and a touch spicy. A hint of soft fruit and orange peel along with a bit of sweet malt. Light and fairly quaffable brew although it’s fairly forgettable. Simple though.
