3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a thin white head that recedes slowly. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of fruity hops, pine and toasted malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Very nice, like a lighter IPA, fruity citrus and pine hops against a sweet malt body, finishes with citrus and resin.

A bit spicy, which is interesting. Not the best American Pale Ale ever, oh well. I have 4 more to go.

Draught at the Silver Moon, Bend, OR.
Clear golden colour with a small white head.
Citrusy and floral hops, mild bitterness and some sweet cookie maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is pretty similar... citrus and fruity hops, mild bitterness and sweet malt. Drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle dated 11/25/14. It pours a rather deep golden color with an off white head. The aroma has a classic floral, citrus and lightly tropical hop profile with some light toasted/caramel malt. The flavor is floral, caramel, fruity, light citrus and toast in the finish. Pretty clean, standard, classic APA. Not bad.

nice hop profile here makes this a better than average American pale ale. soft citrus on the nose and palate with enough of a bitter kick to notice. At least as good as the ipa...

Thanks to Tamara.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange to yellow color with a one finger white foamy mushroom capped head that dissipated at a rather nice slow pace. Decent sticky lacing clung nicely around the glass.
The smell had a large amount of bitter grapefruit, citrus fresh and a zing of pine to pummel my nose, wow.
The taste was mainly bittersweet citrus with a super nice bitter pine back up.
On the palate, this one assaults my tongue extremely nicely, holy wow, tongue was pounded into submission! The carbonation was appropriately styled.
Overall, wow what a freaking nice beer, APA, uh...could be close to an AIPA but whatever this is its awesome!
