4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light citrus, grapefruit, peach, and light tropical fruits. Itís a transparent golden-orange with a small white head and some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with some nice tropical fruits and peach. The finish has light-moderate citrus and grapefruit bitterness. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, this is a damn good session beer and I could really drink a lot of this. I really like Citra hops.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber orange with a large off-white creamy head that dissipates slowly with nice sticky lacing. Aroma is quite nice - citra all the way, grapefruit, resin, passionfruit. Flavor is about the same. quite nice actually, little sweetness, medium bitterness. Light body, a bit oily and watery at the same time (yes I know those dont mix!). Quite good - yet another winner from michigan!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one poured a darker golden color with a white head. Aroma was of mainly citra, tropical and citrusy, not much else really. Falvor was similar, medium to strong fresh citra chracter, a little subdued comepared to some of the best citra beers but still pretty darn good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at tasting. Hazy orange body. Soapy residue of a head. A touch of buttery tones bring it down. OK, but lacks perfection for sure. Kind of amateur, but a lot of hop tones.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bronze and copper coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of light citrus hops with a good malt noticeable and some light fruity smells of apricots and lemons. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive herbal and citrus hop flavours at first that show more hops than malt, but the malt is noticeable shortly after with some cardboardie notes. Aftertaste shows a good light and fresh hop flavour with a little sweetness and some hints of bitterness at the end. Overall, a nice crisp and refreshing APA with more hops than malt. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.99 sampled in Grosse Ile, Michigan on 04-August-2013.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bonus 12oz bottle thanks to Gimmethefunkís 1st trade, thanks Pat. Poured an okay looking thicker orange/amber body under a smaller sized foamy light beige head. Aroma needed a little time to open up. Notes of citrus, apricot, amber malts, toast and light lemon. Palate has overly assertive carbonation on a fuller mouthfeel with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Flavor is dry toast, bad oranges, citrus rind, slight earth and a hint of dry vanilla candle for some reason.Average.

Poured a golden color with aromas of light malt, citrus, hops, and light tropical fruit. Flavors were citrus, hops, and light malt. The citrus flavors and hops quenched my thirst, but still made me want more after each sip.
