Pours yellow. Strong aroma for yellow color. Strong hops. Grass and citrus. Bitter taste at first. But after a few sips, goes down smoothly with a good finish. Light body with thin texture. This is a very deceiving beer. The lighter color throws you off as to the real strong flavor of this beer.

Tessic (886) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
This apa poured a golden yellow colour with a minimal, white head. Slightly cloudy. Scents include pineapple, orange and lemon citrus, light cheese and dough. First swig was smooth and creamy with nice, not over the top citrus hops. Beautiful level of carbonation. Lighty malty finish with citrus hops lingering. Very good!

dwyerpg (4629) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2014
This one tastes old. A bit flat with a pale ale flavor that is just a bit off, like it’s more of an English style. Not good, which makes me think this beer got damaged.

HIGHB4LL (632) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: 2+ fingers white head, golden color, light cloudy. Aroma: caramel, light pine, citrus, floral. Palate: light body, moderate-light carbonation, sticky texture, bitter finish. Taste: light sweet caramel, slightly more intense sweet fruitiness, into citrus bitter, than on into heavy pine bitterness and floral bitterness finishes it out. Overall, very complex hops makeup, not overly bitter despite light sweetness, very good beer.

Strykzone (5038) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Had a pint of this at Social Gastropub. Generally clear and golden with some decent foam. This beer was full of tropical and citrus fruit with the tropical out front. Grapefruit underneath. Some malts added nicely.

pinkzambia (1523) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Tap: sweet hoppy aroma with a semi clear gold look with a small sustainable white head. Hoppy Flavors abound, almost an IPA. Slight Wheaties aftertaste. Yum!

downender (6445) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle from Bo Brooks’ Lighthouse Liquors, Baltimore. Slightly hazy gold, with a thin, white, head. Big, hoppy, grapefruit and pineapple notes, with some crisp malts and dryish finish. Very good.

eduardovl (915) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a tulip glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a medium and bubbled white head with medium to low retention and some lacings left in the glass. Lots of particles floating around that I suppose are the result of dry hopping S: Great nose. Very flowery, fruity and piny. Strong notes of tropical fruits, pine and a touch of citrus. Strong notes of pale malts, mainly Maris Otter. Reminded me the Brewdog Punk IPA. End is a bit earthy. Refreshing... T: Slightly sweet malts in the beginning. It’s always nice the combination of Maris Otter malts and piny hops. Makes it more refreshing and with a strong tropical fruits character. Moderate hop bitterness in the end M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Something to be mention is the water quality of Southern Tier that gives the beer a quite smooth texture. Piny and fruity aftertaste O: Great drinkability. An APA that could be easily classified as an IPA. Quite hoppy, refreshing and... Delicious [ BA Review @ 6/5/2014 ]

On tap at Hilton Garden Inn, Buffalo, September 2013. Nice surprise to find this at the hotel bar. Good beer with no bells and whistles.

crazyvin (1976) - New York, USA - OCT 2, 2014
A clear orange amber hue with a thick white head that had nice retention. A slight effervescent quality. Aroma was a nice mix of floral notes which were almost like talcum powder. Some grapefruit hips and a mild sense of bread like malts. Flavor was nice and balanced. Grapefruit hops were not overpowering and floral notes were just right. Finish was smooth and carbonation was mild. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottles. Hazy golden color with a prominent white head. Nice lacing as well. Aroma is hops, orange, distinct is maltiness. Flavor is balanced. Hops, some lemon and grapefruit up front give way to a maltiness in the middle. Hoppy finish. Also a pretty nice mouthfeel. Slight creaminess to it. The key point of this beer is its balance. Wow. Very good.
