3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle served in a Dog Fish Head IPA glass
A - Pours a hazy/ruddy burnt orange, firm 2 finger head that droops average lacing.
S - Earthy yeast, green vegetal hops, green peppers, chives, spicy floral, lemon, not-sweet grapefruit rind, rustic, peppery, generic pale malts.
T - Bittering hops upfront, earthy floral, rustic woody hops, lemon oils, spicy herbal notes, bitter grapefruit oils runs strong against pale toasted barley, citrus comes out more as it warms along with some resinous pine. The finish is bitter greens with toasted grassy afterthought.
M - Full bodied, hefty feel, moderate whipped/creamy carbonation,
I like the different hop profile. Non-typical and complex. Plenty of hops with a rustic yeast pushing back. The more I drink this the more I like it. This is a stand out among it’s class.

Bottle - thanks RobertDale! Pours cloudy amber orange with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is citrus, yeast, grass, pine, dust. Flavor is the same, citrus, floral, fruity, yeast, grass. Medium body, high carbonation. Interesting APA with a touch of saison-ness going on in it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to soonerchamps. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small foamy head that quickly fades to ring. Aroma is fresh hops, lots of citrus, flowers, pineapple, and some herbs. Taste is a slight step down from the aroma. Somewhat juicy citrus hops and flowers but a light plastic taste shows up. Pretty dry finish too. Solid APA with a really good aroma but the taste and finish could be better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks to lumpsowers, 11/4/2013. Pours cloudy golden orange, fizzy white head dies to light hazy island on the surface, small ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is light orange, melon, peach, really nice fruity hop notes, dry toasted straw. Taste is citrus hops, candied melon, with sharp piney component, bitter grassy finish. Light body, crisp, drinks pretty easy. Thought this was pretty solid.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clean medium golden color with a finger of white foam. The nose is volatile with traces of acetone and melted plastic mixing with a light pale malt and a touch of citrus. The palate follows with a decent beer hidden behind a shroud of offness translating as melted plastic phenolic... yuck.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at an esbls. Very hazy dingy golden. A finky aroma with fruit. Citrus but mild. This is a pale ale. A nice beer. Fruot and some funk.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 9/15/13 from a capped 12oz bottle brought to me by a friend that visited Oklahoma. Pours dark orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to average, but messy lace. The nose is a classic blend of bread malt and some resin and citrus hops along with some earthy American ale yeast. The flavor is the same with a bit more resin than anything else, with the lightly toasted bread malt, earthy yeast, and just a hint of citrus. The body is just under medium with lively, stinging carbonation and a long bread malt and lightly bitter resin hops finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl oz bottle. From a trade with deyholla. Cheers!
Cloudy deep golden colour with a small white head.
Mild sweet aroma with some cookie, fruit and malty notes.
The flavour is much drier. Strong hoppy bitterness and some malty sweetness. There’s something in the hop profile that I’m not huge fan of. But certainly drinkable and even enjoyable APA.
