UPDATED: APR 12, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Normís, 4/12/12

Aroma: The nose is heavy malty, with toffee, caramel, bread, and some citrus hops too
Appearance: This one pours a clear amber-orange color with a small white head and spotty lace
Flavor: Tastes more balanced with sweet malts (caramel, bread) and some hop bitterness (citrus, floral)
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a slight stickiness, a bit of slickness, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This re-rate from the bottled version (vs. draft) isnít going to change the score at all for me. I still found the flavor to be slightly better then the nose because of the increased hop presence, and I still found the beer to be fine, but unexceptional. 3.2 - 6/3/7/3/13

Location: Draft at Hop Devil, 12/3/11

Aroma: The nose has some earth, pine, caramel, floral notes, light booze
Appearance: This one pours a clear caramel-orange color, small head, light lace
Flavor: The taste here is decently balanced, with caramel, earth, and pine
Palate: The body is medium with a decent mouthfeel, but it came off a touch muddled
Overall Impression: This beer was decent, but not a standout. I didnít hate it, but I was certainly left wanting a little bit more from this one. 3.2 - 6/3/7/3/13

On the twelfth day of Christmas 2011. Pours clear reddish rown with a white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus, caramel and some florals. Taste is very light bitters with sweet finish. Tastes very unfinished. Light and airy. Overall this seems very incomplete, much more malty then other APAs.
