Bottle. Citrus and pine in the nose, not a lot of weight but the fruit is nice, clear Cascade-Centennial mix. Dulled clear golden leaning to orange body with a short off-white head. Taste strongly bitter, a little rubbery with some mild resin but there’s some yeasty bread, too, which is quite nice. Earthy and pine notes, a little scratchy, fruit is subdued, malt is thinnish and one-dimensional. Medium body on the whole and a decent go.

Big hop flavor and hoppy finish. Other flavors seem muted by the hop flavor. Not a bad beer. It just isn’t my taste in beers.

Great beer for the winter time. Taste is mild bit not to mild. Light brown mildly cloudy. Suggest to people you are just getting into seasonal ales.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-gold body, with a full head. Has citrus, pine, and spice notes, with medium hop bite. I was expecting something a bit more flavorful but it’s not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with some lacing, over a clear pale amber (SRM 10) body....nose is pine, citrus tending toward orange, toffee/caramel....taste is toffee/caramel, leading to pine, citrus bitterness which lingers.....mouth feel medium, carbonation medium. This is a reasonably balanced APA. It is not as heavily hopped as many in the style which makes it a bit more "English"j except that all the hops used are American. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

12oz bottle. Pale orange color, white head. Aroma of hops. Loads of citrus hops aromas, dry-hopped on top of a musty smelling malt backbone. Sharp hop bitterness, pine resin bite. Finishes with the grassy hop character of my dad’s beer. (3546)
