3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft on tap at Schlafly Bottleworks (Maplewood, MO). Pours a nice amber golden hue, a bit darker in the middle with frothy bright white head atop. Mellow ring laces ok and sticks around small. Aromas are a bit soapy, citrusy grapefruit and lemon. Touches of bread, gentle grain, earthy and floral bitterness. Fresh, a touch vibrant. Initial is lighter end with some decent spritzy bitter hops. Lemon, touches of grapefruit and florals. Some touches of bread, gentle earthiness and dough. Cleaner, dry and bitter as we hit the backend. Nice, clean, the beer isn’t hop dominant but is tasty and fresh. Pretty approachable APA. Smells very nice.

I liked the dry hopping in this. It has a nice hop aroma and taste. Not too overpowering, since it’s not an IPA.

Sampled from the tap at Bottleworks. Pours a hazy amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grass and straw with some earthy grains for the backbone. Flavor is full of grass with a touch of pine and straw and grain for the backbone.

Bottle. Golden color. Decent head. Aroma is spruce with grapefruit. Taste is rather bland for a pale ale.

Pours a deep golden color with a creamy white head. Pretty good lacing as well. Really liked this one from the first drink. Great piney taste with a bit of citrus in there as well. Love the balance, not to hoppy, and very tasty and drinkable. One of those beers that I could enjoy at almost any time, will continue to buy this one.

Aroma of lots of citrus and mild pine. Taste is more citrus and pine, some bitterness, sweet full bodied with the malts, dry aftertaste. Very crisp and refreshing. Very surprised and very good for an APA.

This is my go to beer. I could drink this for any occasion I can think of. Distinct, yet light hop profile. Smooth and slightly creamy feel. Sessionable, but still has a kick. My preferred APA.
