Dayton draft. Color was dark amber with medium white head. Aroma was hoppy and complex. Flavor was good balance of hops and malty with a good balnced finish. Tasted a little more complex than a standard american pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lasting hops flavor and good malt balance. Definitely different than the typical APA in the ratio of malt in the mix. Worth another try.

Its mouth feel is tingly with a lingering slightly tingly palate and a smooth aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty hoppy flavors favoring the hops with a mild brown beer and caramel malty note.

Out of the tap at the Dayton brewpub. Golden copper color with a tight, white head. White sugar sweetness with a little spicey hop finish. Clean finish but not much body. A little simplistic.

ON TAP: Fairly dark color for an APA. Came with no head by the time it arrived at my table. Apricot finish. Little bitter. Fairly decent balance, but nothing special. Just OK.

My friend Chris has owned nothing but Golden Retrievers for the past 15 years, but he’s no fan of this one - it may have been inbred and most likely needs it’s hips replaced. It could be a faithful companion, but the aftertaste is what offended me. The body was medium, malty and an ok hops level, not much aroma.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this at the Thristy Dog on the Beer Engine. Poured a hazy orange with minimal head. I was surprised to discover that my beer had little to no aroma. Beer had very little carbonation and a lite mouth feel. The flavor was flowery and citrus with sweet malt and orange. Finished lite and bitter with a good aftertaste. Not to shabby...

this almost a textbook apa. Nice mix of malt and hops. Good color and head. One of the beers that i'd recommend.
