3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at John’s Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., dispensed to a shaker showing a hazed, orangey gold hue, with a meringue-like layer of cream colored head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was initially cloaked by the persistent froth, but gradually revealed a nose that wasn’t altogether fresh, but very dank & stinky, followed by citrus as grapefruit, and some resinous notes. Medium+ bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste also presented some malt sweetness, and like creaminess to the mouthfeel. The hop influence was strong, citrus & rind astringency that lingered well past the empty glass, and a full serving of water. A hearty APA whose bitterness rivaled many DIPAs that I’ve sampled.

Amber with a cream head. Nose is fruity hops, sticky, florals, and bright. Great palate, fruity hops, sticky palate, smooth, and a easy finish

On tap at lambert international airport. Good bitter hoppy pale ale with the only sweetness coming through right up front. The rest of each sip and aftertaste is dominated by hop bitterness. I really liked this one.

In my beer drinking I’ve came a long way and these malty style APA’s don’t cut it anymore. This one has a strong and distinct malty backing and finish. Not enough hops for a dry hopped ale for me. Kind of let down by this one.

On tap at the at louis airport. Hazy orange with a white head that only briefly graced us with its presence. Orange peel and wheat and hops were dominant but nothing overwhelming.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass. Weak thin head dissipated quickly with minimal lacing. Citrus and honey aroma. Straw colored with significant hazing. Piney citrus taste with minimal malt sweetness. Overall an APA that struggles to identify itself.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden with a thinner white head. The aroma has grassy hops, caramel, mild grapefruit and mango, and some spice. The taste has some bitterness, with heavy grapefruit and some pineapple. There are some floral hops, and some lesser impressions of pine and caramel. Aftertaste is grapefruit. This is lighter in body, has a slick texture, and about average in carbonation. Its alright and is rather easy to drink. Its nothing to knock your socks off though.

Great copper orange look from a bottle in a tulip glass. Decent hoppy aroma. A little bitter and not flavorful enough for my taste.

Great cascade like aroma, superb pine flavor and some grassiness finish wa exactly that a finish, no lingering crap in background just a great clean finish expected in this style.

Bottle to glass. Pours a light copper, one finger of white head. Aroma of light citrus hops, grassy. Taste is nicely balanced roasted, semi sweet malts with lightly citrusy hops. Pretty enjoyable!
