Poured a coper color from the bottle aromas of pine resin, light floral hops and some malt. Flavors are the same, mostly resin, solid beer overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice selection. Smooth body, with a very particular hop right upfront, I just canít put my finger on what kind it is. However, itís not too bitter, itís a nice sweet hoppy flavor, but without much of a malt backbone. Sessionable, drinkable, and competent. But Iíve had better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
1/10/10 notes: on tap, Simmzyís. Dark gold-orange in color with good lacing. Aroma is grassy, herbal, a bit of lime. Palate is very dry and light, keeps you coming back for additional sips. Flavor starts with aggressive grassy hops, grapefruit, minerals. Flavors fades into a pretty firm, clean bitterness. Great with food, and a good first offering from these folks.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
this falls into the no mans land of not a pale and almost a west coast IPA. pours a light orange to yellow in color. citrusy aroma. nice red grapefruit flavor. pretty bitter. i think this is a pretty good beer but it is in a category that really demands something fabulous and this falls into the middle for me.

Amber and bright. The aroma is citrusy, bright, only a little bit woody. Herbal and slightly bitter character. A good, refreshing APA...I like it better than their IPA.
