3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Cloudy pour with citrus on the nose and in the flavor. Less malt then in the imperial, but still more than I would have liked. I think it took away from the citrus fruits that start to come through. Hops are there but taken out by the malt. The review sounds harder on the brew than what I actually thought. I still thought this was a solid brew.

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. Flavor’s 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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. I’ll have to stop in next time I’m 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazed amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of funky organic hops, floral, mentholated and complex. In mouth, biscuit malt, citrusy hops, cloves, nice, lingering and smooth, nice. On tap at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.

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.

On tap at One Barrel. Hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of faint hops, malt and floral notes. Taste of citrus, caramel, floral hops and mild tannins. Moderate hop finish, not bad.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 Updated to reflect that I’ve experienced a pretty good amount of inconsistency with this beer. The first couple times I had it I thought it was great, but unfortunately I haven’t had much luck with it since.

On tap at One barrel, was surprised to see more than one of their own brews on! Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head and no lacing, the aroma is of tad bit of citrus with mainly malt coming through, the flavor has a touch of hops on the front end with a malty finish, something seems a little off though, not bad.
