3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can pours dark red amber with finger of head. Nose and palate are both malt heavy and lack real substantial hop presence, puzzling as this can is hardly 2 weeks old. Malt sweetness and bitter, light citrus notes. Some subtle piney orange in there. A let down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head that left good lacing around the glass. The aroma is quite hoppy, some metallic, bready. The taste is citrusy hops with quite a bit of bitterness but it is not overpowering. There is some breadiness and alcohol noticeable as well. The mouth-feel is on the medium side.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can. Dark brown to amber with large, rapidly fading dirty white to almost light beige rapidly decreasing head leaving quite a bit of beautiful snowflake like lacing. Piny aroma backed by some malt sweetness, some high citrus as well. Nice bitter taste backed and held up by a good malt sweetness. Lasting bitter aftertaste with some warming alcohol and vague notes of the same in flavour. Not too complex but still a rather enjoyable APA, for drinking rather than contemplating.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick head. Amber beer. Piney aroma. Distinct hops but balanced somewhat but toasted malty notes. Dry hoppy finish. But too hoppy for me.

Can to shaker glass. Pours clear deep amber, two finger off white head, very nice lacing, great retention. Aroma of caramel, pine and herbs. Taste is moderately bitter, just the right sweetness to balance. Medium light body, soft carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bitter sweet and long. Tasting notes of caramel, spruce, herbs, resin and pear. This is a very tasty APA.
