3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Up North Bar in Madison, WI. during pre-GToM festivities. Shaker served and showed a fairly clear, medium gold color, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was light malt and citrusy orange. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, the taste included a citrusy, rind-like, and earthy bitterness as the esters diminished their expression a bit in the flavor. Some dryness hooked up with the bitterness for the finish. Sessionably decent.

Great surprise for this beer! Got a growler after trying it at the bar. Poured with a smallish, but thick, off-white, foamy head with a bit of lace. Color is a slightly hazy amber. Aroma, to my lame snooter, is decent, malt, hop, and clean. Flavorís like nose, bitter is up front along with tang, fairly dry, and tasty. Body is good, ditto carbonation although it is perhaps a bit heavy. Finish is good, very drinkable, and glad I got a growler to share with friends.

Sampled at GTMW 2013. Nice looking, hazy orange pour with a nice eggshell colored head. Aroma of mild citrus hops and sweet bread malts. Flavor has a mild citrus bitterness, touches of caramel and sweet bread. A bit of grassiness come out towards the finish. Iíll have to stop in next time Iím in Madison.

Had it on tap at One Barrel Brewing Company in Madison Wi, a nano-brewery. Poured a hazy orange hue with a light head and a smooth hop fruity aroma. Very unique tast of hop / citrus / and malt. Yummy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at One Barrel - Pours dark amber with a thin off white head. Citrus hops on the nose, though not too pungent. Dark bread malt underneath that dominates the hops. Taste is the same--real malty, a bit of spiciness, and some herbal/grassy hops that come in through the finish. Decent heft in the body and well-carbonated. Way too malty for my tastes, especially for an APA.
