Bottle - small foamy head, clear medium gold color, fair earthy and fruity hop aroma and flavor, fair malt backbone, fair overall - not bad but nothing special

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Really disappointing. Orange transparent body, some head that quickly fades, not much lacing. Faintly hoppy aroma, a touch of citrus but ever so slight. Taste is really watery, the faintest bit of bitter hops, but metallic and bordering on off putting even though it’s not much flavour. Kind of more like a pilsener than an APA, but even so, not a great one. Poorly executed or intentionally pedestrian. Either way, it’s not for me.

Had in a can at a St. Cloud ROX softball game.
Nice aroma out of the can, nice and easy drinking pale ale.
Decent lingering palate - for me it was the best beer available.
Nice beer to have a boat.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with white head. Floral hop notes, citrus, and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a decent amount of bready malt. A little much on the finish for my taste, but not bad.

Nice aroma; pleasant taste. Hops bite a little higher than IBU would indicate. I’ll buy it again.

Aroma is fruity hops, caramel malt and the pour is hazy golden amber with thin white head. Low bitterness up front but it lingers for longer than wanted in the finish. Unspectacular but, drinkable.

Dark Hazy Orange with a semi foamy head, high carbonation and good lacing. Lemon, yeasty, and floral/piney aroma. Flavors of barley, yeasts, floral & citrus hops and pale malts. Moderate body and high carbonation; Fairly crisp. Pretty good for a sessionable ale!

Pour from a bottle. Not offensive, but also not good. Odd bitterness in the finish.

Well balanced with a floral aroma and some grapefruit. Nice maltiness for balance. Slightly bitter at the end. Pretty good beer.
