4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s the Todd show staring DHAPA. From a wickedly cold icy tomb rises a mountainous froth that just sits there. A waxy apricot color and superb lacing. Strong aromas of fresh crispy citrus rind but it dissipates after a while. Full nectar with mellow carbonation creating a dense milky texture. A fat caramel malt backbone delivers a fresh load of snappy citrus with a bit of biscuiting. Beautifully balanced with a snappy finish. A really tasty brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 Beer that Schlafly makes for the Boathouse Restaurant in Forrest Park. On tap at the restaurant. The body is dark orange and gold with a slightly off white head. The aroma has grapefruit and some floral notes. Lots of citrus. The taste has a citrus note with some bread crust. The finish is like fresh green beans.
Earlier Rating: 1/7/2006 Total Score: 3.4
The body was dark orange with a little haze. The was a thin whit ehead on top. The aroma was soapy with some grapefruit. The taste had grapefruit along with some light caramel and oced tea. The light body makes this very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 I liked this one a lot! Picked this up at Sahara Mart. Pours a nice even amber color. Lots of piney and bitter hops. "Medium bodied" is the perfect way to describe this one. Doesn’t overpower, but not watery at all. Has just a hint of malt, but it acts as a nice balance to the hops. I really dug this one and would have it again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden brown with a fairly small off white head. Aroma is sweet smelling with a bunch of citrusy hops iin it. Taste is strong grapefruit citrus with a long bitter finish. Could use a little bit more malt profile but a very good beer nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear particulate laden golden amber with large wispy off-white slowly diminishing head that laces quite nicely. Medium hope nose of citrus and floral aromas and a touch of bread & yeast. Decently balanced with a light bitter finish. A little light on hops taste-wise (grapefruit) for an APA, but not too bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange amber with massive frothy bright-white head. Deliciously fruity apricot and nectarine aroma with underlying pine resin. Great hop bite to the flavor, pungent spruciness with dry grassy, earthy green finish. Biscuity malts balance it nicely. Good carbonation level, overall a solid, tasty APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle born on January 29, 2008. Pours a cloudy orange with a tall white head. I was expecting a bit more hops in the aroma, but it’s still pretty nice. A musty note is there, almost like a Saison, but primarily herbal spiciness and caramel are present. I don’t get a great deal of citrus on this one. The flavor has a medium level of sweetness in a bready, peachy fashion with drying, piny hoppiness. Again, not a whole lot of citrus. The bitterness comes out more like herbs or pot. This is a pretty solid American pale.
