3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-amber body with a nearly non-existent white head. Light, sweet aroma. I can sense some caramel malt and a little sweet citrus. Rather thin palate, but very smooth. Interesting flavor that is better than the aroma lets on. When I first took a drink I said, "tea." More than anything, it tastes like a glass of sweet tea with a little bit of lemon. There is just a slight bitter finish. Decent beer that lacks depth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Clear gold pour with a medium off-white head. Balanced malt and hop aroma that is very dank; missing the crisp factor. The flavor gives some crisp hops and a bit of malt before a bitter finish. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is light and hoppy - taste is heavy on green apple, really bright with a crispness and hoppy bite that is very refreshing. Great pairing for Friday night fish fry in WI.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rather unattractive dirty orange with very little head. Sits like dirty water in the glass. Some caramel, hop and dirt in the aroma. Not bad in the flavor, with some citrus, some hay, decent malt, and a touch of bitter in the finish. Better than I thought it would be, but not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thick amber with a small quickly dissipating tan head. Bread, caramel and citrus on the aroma, but the mix seems a bit off. Flavors don’t translate over to the taste very well as all I get is burnt hops and malt that lead to a medium bitter finish. Somewhat watery and grainy. Ok at best.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color, significant off-white head. Aroma was slightly hoppy, some citrus notes. Flavor was mediocre, it was somewhat hoppy but not enough for me. Quite a bit of malt flavor, which seemed unbalanced for an APA. Not terrible, but I wouldn’t try it again.
