Nothing but tangerine in the aroma. Very simple APA - hoppy fruitiness. Yes, it’s a bit one-dimensional, but it’s pretty tasty. I think I could drink a fair amount of this before getting bored as the balance is pretty good.

Bottle, thanks strykzone. And boy a big thanks. This is an underrated brew. An awesome amber pour with a nice big white head. A great floral aroma hits you with some green pepper and malty sniffs as well. The flavor doesnt bite you with hops but you can taste them with delicacy. The malt is sweet and the carbonation is nice. A really good beer.

Tap @ Schlafly St. Louis. Pours a clear, golden orange appearance with a white head. Somewhat piney, a bit spicy hoppy, pale malty aroma. Fairly pedestrian flavor: notes of flowers, pine, citrus, and toasted malts, though all are weak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is a fusion of toffee, grapefruit and piney, peppery hop. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is all about bitter, juicy hops and caramel malt. Bittersweet, lupulin/juicy hop finish.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Bottled 8 days ago. Awesome. Pours a hazy orange color with a medium white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Nice, sharp hoppy aroma with resin, leafy notes and caramel. The taste is caramel, citrus and leafy hops, with a bit of a lingering burn. Very faint breadiness in the finish. Medium bodied, smooth, nicely balanced. Good beer.

Sample at the Lambert St. Louis airport location (as Expedition Reserve). Clear amber-orange color with a thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of floral hops and citrus. Medium body with flavors of floral hops, citrus and toasted malt. The finish is moderately hoppy and fruity and lingers awhile. Pretty good overall.
