Perfect head, radiant color--looks and acts just like a beer should. Very drinkable with spicy overtones that tease you into contemplating a dash a pumpkin for the fall.

Light golden in color with creamy white head. Mild hop aroma and flavor, a good beer for someone who does not LOVE hoppy beers. Some spiciness was present in the aroma.

Lasting hops flavor and good malt balance. Definitely different than the typical APA in the ratio of malt in the mix. Worth another try.

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...

pretty good pale ale, but a bit too mild.

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.

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.

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

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.
