4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from 21st Amendent Liquor in Indy. Pours a nice looking gold with hints of copper. Frothy and sticky white head. Nose is woody and resiny, lots of pine, citrus and apricot. Faint biscuity malts. On tasting, hint of caramel, a strong bitterness that quenches. Lots more of that citrus and resin coming through, along with a sturdy back bone. Pretty awesome APA, up there with Daisy Cutter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to JoePeesie! Clear amber pour with moderate eggshell head. Aroma is full of pine and earthy hops backed by plenty of caramel malt and bread. Flavor is hop dominant of spruce, orange peel, and dirt backed by caramel malt. Some lemon in the finish with moderate rush of hops. Really good!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Can on July 10th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours an orange copper.
Aroma: Light pine, citrus.
Taste: Medium bitterness, piney, some grapefruit.
Palate:Light body, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: First off, thanks Dave for getting the beer! This beer has a lot of flavor, especially for 5.6%. Something in the taste is just slightly short of greatness to me, and thatís why I give this a very good but not great rating. Maybe itís bordering on IPA land and so I want more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with tall tan head.
Aroma is strong,flowery, citrus hops.
Taste is mild bitter hops....rather dull tones in the hops, muted..not much zing compared to the scent.
Still, very nice taste and feel.
A bit watery, but good.

Very pleasant session beer and a good example of an american pale. Light, drinkable with a decent malt backbone, but hops dominate. Itís moderately bitter and heavy on the citrus. Finish is crisp, clean and refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Liz. Pours light amber with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma: cat pee is next to godliness. Itís not all that simple, but itís a very citrus aroma. Near med body. Flavor is a lot of citrus hop over a barely noticeable malt backbone. Finishes spicy/hoppy. Just excellent.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear gold with a thin white head. Weird perfumy aroma with some floral hops and some sweet malty toffee/caramel undertones. Flavor was the same with some sweet caramel/toffee tones with some nice moderate bitterness and a lovely citric/floral hop flavor. Pretty nice.
