Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Light piney hops, hints of fruity sweetness, and a mostly pale malty base, followed by a medium bitter finish. A well hopped, easy-drinking thirst quencher.

A - Pours an amber orange with a hefty eggshell head that last awhile.
S - Citrusy and herbal, bready malt, sharp grain notes, sweet pale malt. average lacing.
T - Follows the nose with heavy citrus and bread, stingy bitterness, grainy pale malt, herbal crunch, lightly toasty, the citrus turns less heavy and more bright. Pine resin comes through with a long finish bitter finish. Finishes slick with a false dryness.
M - Moderate prickly carbonation, medium body.
Nice flavors with an aggressive bite for an APA. My first from Shlafly and it wonít be my last.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a great example of where American Pales are going and Iím glad for it. Dial back the bitterness of a great IPA and leave the nose intact. Great aroma of pine and petrol (in a good way).

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma of this beer is hoppy despite how subtle it is, and the appearance is a hazy golden color with a small white head. The taste is mildly bitter and a touch sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, bitter finish, and a soft carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light gold color...almost pilsner-esque. Nose more characteristic of APA - some citrus and pine, but not too strong. Taste has some caramel sweetness, orange peel bitterness on the finish. Ok.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a copper color with a nice 1 inch head that slowly dissipates. Taste is initially hoppy but quickly transitions to a biscuity, malt finish.

Pours a copper color with a nice 1 inch head that slowly dissipates. Taste is initially hoppy but quickly transitions to a biscuity, malty finish. A fantastic APA that I will be having as one of my "go to" beers.
