On tap@ Noble Fir. Pours thin slightly cloudy pale straw yellow with head that thins out quickly. Aroma is punchy tart hops. Taste is big grapefruit and pine hops that last throughout. Not really any malt to speak of... and I don’t mind. Delicious, simple, sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled May 29, 2014.
Appearance: A huge dense off-white head erupts out of the clear and vibrantly orange hued body and sticks around with great retention.
Aroma: Bit of orange, mango and grapefruit, a bit floral. There’s a slight yeasty quality in the aroma, and a bit of a homebrew maltiness.
Taste: Crisp and refreshing with a noticeable hop flavor that is prominently oranges. The body is crisp and clean until the finish, which is a bit dominate by the malt that comes through sharply at the very end to throw this off a bit. Refreshing until the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with filling carbonation, a bit overcarbed.
Overall: This was much better on tap last year. This year, in bottles, tastes like homebrew, pours like one, and is carbed like one. It lacks the professional refineness that should be associated with a top tier brewery.

Very tasty brew. Kind of a pilsner aroma up front but lots of hops in the end. Very bitter and quite dry. Another great beer for the hot days.

Tap. Probably the best APA I’ve ever had. A bit over carbonated but after it mellows and warms up this is an exceptional hop treat. Bright citrus hops all around and a mild malt balance. Super flavorful and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber from Xroads. Poured a very nice looking hazed orange body with a frothy lace dropping head. Aroma is tangerines, eraser shavings, wooden pencil, older oranges, dry bread crusts. Nice body, medium and creamy with softer carbonation. Flavor is not as citrusy fruity as the aroma, older citrus, wet toast, floral, even a hint of wood. Nice.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, 3 weeks old, very hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of citrus, lemon, orange, grapefruit into a bit of dank, piney notes in there as well, slight bready notes but not much. Taste is a mix of grass, pine, grapefruit, slight dank, hints of grain, bread, finishing fairly bitter, clean. Tasty.
