Dratt at a restaurant in Beaufort, NC. Amber color with white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops and some malt. Taste adds caramel sweetness and a little fruitiness. Not bad.

Malty nose with some caramel notes, the hops are piney and some citrus at the end. Pours dark golden with persistent white foam. On the light side with a watery / oily body and light fizz. The taste is a good malt / hop balance, with the hops overall.]

Aroma very muted. Taste is hops-forward with citrus and grapefruit notes. Pretty decent hops-forward pale ale. Rating is coming out to an even average 3 because of how much they are counting aroma, which just almost isn’t there in this beer. Taste wise, though, this is more of a 3.2 than a 3.0. :)

CraftBeerNick (1842) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle at Gaylord, Nashville, 10th July 16. Pours clear. Aroma is limited, slight citrus maybe. Flavour is non offensive, slightly lacking. It’s OK, but dull.

Hazy orange yellow pour with aroma of citrus, pine, and bread. Citrus flavor with some grapefruit, bread, and hint of pine. Nice beer.

Had this on tap at glory days grill in Tampa Florida. Good grapefruit notes. Not a lot of malt flavor, but still a good apa.

skmikeg (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Pours light orange with a one finger white head which fades to just a little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grassy hops, herbal hops, light dankness and light bready malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a slightly better then average, drinkable APA that I wish was danker and hoppier considering its name.

12 oz bottle poured, picked up in St. Pete. Pours a clear golden color with a thick soap bubble head. Gentle aroma of malt ahead of anything else. Cream body, very pleasant pale here. Cool sweetness, hop flavor over bitterness. Refreshing. I can drink this regularly if I had it available.

Draft at T.G.I. Friday's in Atlanta airport. Pale amber with a white head. Mad lacing. Nose is citrus and toasted malt. Taste is mild hop bitterness. Grassy finish. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just enough Munich malt to remind me of an Oktoberfest hangover. First had this beer at Bonnaroo in 2005, and it doesn’t seem to taste quite the same now (I can’t imagine why). It has enough hop profile to keep me entertained, but I generally like my beer like I prefer my 420: more dank/more piney/more citrus + grapefruit.
