On tap at Pazzo’s (Lexington, KY)
Clear amber body with excellent clarity; decent white head leaves some spotty lacing.
Aroma: about as much sweet malts as hops. Fruity
Flavor: Some complexity from the hop mix. Biscuity malts in the background.
Feel: rather light bodied; near medium carbonation; smooth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light amber with a touch of haze, no head. Smells of pine and citrus. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, caramel, touch of salt, bit of metal, a touch of bell pepper. Finishes really clean with very little linger, the bell pepper taste most present here. Very drinkable, quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Pours a golden color with a foamy white head that subsides fairly quickly.
S- Citrusey dry-hopped aroma that is slightly faint but very interesting.
T- Kind of falls flat on the taste. Slightly bready, hints of citrus.
M- Medium bodied with decent carbonation and a sticky feel.
D- Not quite what I was expected from the aroma and not something I would order again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy glowing orange-golden with a thick eggshell head that settles slowly to a thick bubbly film and leaves some intricate, dripping lace. Nose involves soft floral and fruity notes, peach and apricot, some light pine, some honey sweet malt notes, soft doughy yeast. Somewhat sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, creamy, oily, fluffy with carb, with a lengthy fruity drying hop finish. Really tasty, nice hop qualities and a good malt balance. Quite sessionable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance is a semi-clear yet somewhat hazy golden orange body yielding a nice two finger white foamy head. Lacing is spotty and leaves some rings.
The smell has the hops up front slightly citrus with a nice combination of malts.
The taste has some bittersweet with some nice flavorful lemon tones coming through.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium, comes across sessionable, and the carbonation seems right on, slightly smooth.
Overall, wow! This is a very nice APA that seems spot on for a hoppy one of its style, I would definitely have this again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 3-16-2010 (Bottled on 10 05 2009) This bottled beer pours a medium sized frothy white head with a short retention, cloudy body, visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, bitter, citrus, grapefruit, pine hops, and fruity. The taste is bitter, fruity, citrus hops, and has a mild dry finish. The palate is mildly carbonated and this beer is light-medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is very quaffable, not over-the-top hoppy tasting which suits me just fine, worth trying, and a beer this non-hophead would drink again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a frothy one finger off white head that left some sparce lacing. Then nose is lightly hoppy with perfume like and floral hops over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is lightly bitter with a little too much crystal malt sweetness under the hops. The sweetness from the malt dominates the hops quite a bit, and really lingers on well into the finish. Light to medium bodied with some light stickiness and fizzy prickly carbonation. Meh, not in my wheelhouse for the style. Too much residual sweetness.
