If I could have one beer for the rest of my life, it would be this one!! Awesome malt and hop characters that are perfectly balanced. I pair this beer with so many foods as well. Call it what you want, and IPA or an APA, this beer is a must have!

Awesome appearance of cloudy brown and copper awesomeness. unfortunately this didn’t knock my socks off except for the color. very lacking aroma, not super bitter or hoppy taste. definitely a great beer, and i will try it again to make sure, but it was relatively uneventful in flavor for a beer that is rated so highly on here. normal IPA flavor and body in general

(bottled). Dark copper, brilliantly clear. Huge, catty grapefruit and other citrus aroma. Medium-full bodied beer leads with big malt and a piney, pungent bitter finish. Smooth, lingering persistent bitterness is giant, but somehow doesn't overwhelm the malt. This is damn good beer.

This APA is a definite winner. A gorgeous amber colour. A fruity flavour, slightly malty. A big winner of APA’s.

Pours a hazy orange. Small head that dissipates quickly. Delicious aroma of grapefruit and malts. Lemony citrus flavors with a good hop bitterness at the end. This one is approaching a light IPA. Smooth and dry. Medium mouth feel with high carbonation to help round out the bitterness. Fantastic beer!

Pours very clear amber, light tan head that stands up. Aroma is malt balanced with citrus note. Can really taste the English pale malt structure. Very nice pale!

12 oz bottle courtesy of Illinismitty. Poured a nice amber color with a frothy well retaining head. The aroma was of citrus and hops. Much hoppier than the pale ales I am use to drinking (Sierra Nevada). The taste was nice and hoppy as well. Initially, the flavor of the sweet malts fills the palate. However, this beer finishes with a nice hoppy, pine aftertaste. A very well balanced APA, probably the best I have had.

Dark auburn, cloudy and with a few chunks swirling around. Rich, creamy, tiny bubble head and leaving quality lacing. nose is richly, malty and resiny hop filled. Full bodied nectar. Citrus hops explode on the palate. Deeply flavorful.

Snifter pour, reddish amber color with a finger of surprisingly thick beige head that lingers. Rich aroma of hops and a hint of malt. Delicious taste. Hops up front with a great malt follow through. Significant lacing on the glass. Medium mouthfeel with a nice hoppy bite. Great beer

A very clean hoppy fragrance with a great 1/2 inch head. beautiful amber color with slight clinging lacing and a rich, bright flavor.
