4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Tired Hands. Pours a light yellow-straw color with a good head. Nice lacing. The nose is exceedingly complex and strong for a beer of this size with fantastic citrus rind, light pine, and hints of tropical fruit. Flavor has a malty dryness to accompany the hop bitterness. Flavor packs in fresh citrus peel along with a light dosing on pine needles and a faint earthy dankness, which must be the Columbus speaking. Body is light and crisp. Uber drinkable. I see many growlers of this in my future.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at TND: Aroma of hops, pine, citrus, resin, and slight grass. Poured pale yellow/straw in color with a small, creamy, loose, rocky, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Full of tiny-sized particles throughout. Flavor is heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, grass, light pine, light citrus, resin, and a hint of yeast. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Heavily bitter, hop, pine, grass, resin finish is dry. A nice local APA/IPA.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This flippy top bottled brew from a rating party poured a very small sized head of frothy clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation slightly hazy light yellow colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was malt hop. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of crisp and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at TND. Pours a hazy pale golden yellow with a medium bubbly white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of fresh American hops. Citruy with light pine and tropical fruit notes. Flavor of the same resiny American hop profile. Dry and bitter. Lots of tropical fruit in the flavor profile as well. This is awesome. So fresh, so hoppy and so dry!

Growler @ the Mini-Tasting, Naples. Cheers to Crosamich for scoring this. The pour’s light gold with a tiny white head. Light floral hop nose. A bit o’ pee. Some lemon rind and general citrus. Hints of sweet canned pears. The taste is more of the same. Light pear and white grape. Moderate citrus hop bite. Super light palate. Only a touch of bready malt. Soft carbonation. Overall, pretty refreshing.

This one poured a cloudy darker yellow with a white head.Aroma was light fruit, light grain, and grass. Flavor was tremendously balanced between fruit hops, light grain, no sweetness at all thought. Very drinkable for sure.

On tap at the brewpub. Nice that they keep the two stand-bys on deck at all times, and this was a well realized and quite dry APA. Light gold pour, with moderate cloudiness and an impressive head. Nose was piney, citric at times, with hints of cracked pepper and pungent flowers. Lively mouthfeel, very sessionable and refreshing. Flavors are slightly brighter and more floral than the nose suggests, but there’s still plenty of dry and peppery flavors in the finish especially. Nuanced session brew, well done.
