3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose a nice blend of lively PNW hops with a clear-cut rye addition and light caramel. Clear orange pour with a rocky tan head. Taste bittersweet and full of hop juice without the resin, floral with a dryish aftertaste (actually where the most bitterness lies). Mild and smooth light, non-watery body. Very good for an APA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle via a trade. Pours with a slightly hazy golden body that shows intense carbonation. Fluffy, bone hued head sits atop with great, ring per sip lacing and retention. Aromas are malt forward (bready, toasty, lightly spicy, grainy) followed by hops (citrus, tangerines, light tropical fruit, grassy). Some fruit esters, and a slight hint of plastic. Flavors are grainy forward (bready, toasty, slightly astringent/husky, peanut shells). Medium hop bitterness and decently dry. Husk tannins are distracting. Hop flavor is low with hints of citrus (orange and lemon). Light fruity esters towards the finish. Well attenuated. Slight plastic in the finish. Very lively carbonation. Medium to low body.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 12 oz bottle. Darker yellow orange color, translucent with a thin white quickly fading head. First impression is a nice, hop bite (but not quite bomb) good after that dunkel. Short-lived aftertaste, but a good one.
