Amber colored. Nose is spicy and fruity. Bitterness bites at the beginning of sip, then slides to mellow sweetness, and finishes bitter. Sweet and toasted grain aromas. Also has hints of pepper and grapefruit.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh. not a classic APA by my definition. it’s not BAD, but not something I’d get again. Too much biscuit and a hint of cardboard cut through with grassy and citric hops. just ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden color, clear, avg carbonation and a head with no retention. Aroma of light citrus/fruit and a hint of floral. Flavor is similar with mostly a bittering finish. Light on the tongue and a light beer overall but definitely APA in character. No off flavors.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours a clear medium amber with a white sudsy head and possesses mild notes of grain malts, floral hops, caramel and a stale cardboard odor. This brew is a little lighter than I expected, it has a very mild hoppiness and a light caramel sweetness and not much else. Really nothing special here...

dark orange 1 finger consistent head that never fades. the nose is really interesting. like fresh pineapple and a little lactic acidity. taste though falls short. mild cream, some orange, pineapple and something else. a little yeasty and light tartness.

2/7 - Home (Bottle) - Decent Shiner offering. Somewhat strong, but a bit bland for an Pale Ale. Better than their standard offerings, and would have again if given the chance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber color with a thick off white head that left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is mixed between some hops and breadiness. I also pick up some fruit in this as well. The taste is very bready with some mild fruit. I do pick up a little bit of floral hops but its rather faint.
