4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cast, Draft & 12oz. Nice fluffy off- white head on this cast darker colored APA. Great flora aroma and citrus flavor from the dry hopping. Excellence in a pint served at the correct temp. from the cast at the Tap Room in downtown St. Louis. This rating is directed towards the cast conditioned pint I tried. Also great on draft and from the bottle. Drink liberally.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a great example of where American Pales are going and I’m glad for it. Dial back the bitterness of a great IPA and leave the nose intact. Great aroma of pine and petrol (in a good way).

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Less complex than many APA’s, but a very clean flavor, with a good bitter edge. An easy to drink APA. Love It!!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: caramel, bread, earthy.
Appearance: golden, clear, sparkling, minimal head.
Taste: medium bitterness, light sweetness, slight floral taste (very mild hint of floral.)
Palate: medium body, thin feel, fizzy, abrupt finish.
Overall: I’ve been called crazy for this, but this beer tastes like a very mild Two Hearted Ale, because of the malts and the floral quality. Obviously, I’d choose Two Hearted over this any day, but this beer is pretty good!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft for Charlie Hoopers in KC, MO
Excellent dark amber color with a very light colored head. A relatively strong tasting APA with a really nice after taste which leaves the taste of the hops present in the beer. I am a hop head and find this to be a great beer at places that dont carry IPA beers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark gold with a lingering head. Smells of a citrusy aroma, and tastes the same. A bit grainy, but not enough to turn one away. Good, but for having "hopped" in the name, I’d expect this to be even hoppier.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a generous, frothy head. Little or no aroma, which is surprising for a dry-hopped pale ale. Taste is fresh and lightly hoppy with just the right amount of bitterness, which politely leaves only a trace on the palate once it makes its presence known. A very drinkable and refreshing APA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the bottleworks. Nice balance between the hop bitterness and the malt. After this I’ll be trying more APA’s.
