4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap a beautiful clear mahogany with a thick, it not overly persistent, light tan head. Hearty aroma has a strong hoppy overtone plus notes of cloves, malt and oatmeal. Seriously hoppy flavor has woody, earthy and malty notes, just the right amount of bitterness, nutty and sweet hints. Smooth, firm texture has plenty of lively fizz, leaving a nice hoppy and slightly malty finish. Go ape over this one!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Lightly hazed, darkish amber body with a whitish, wispy head and a good amount of lace on the drop.
Smell: Lightly toasted bread, lightly toasted whole oats overlayed with a floral, citrusy tone of lemon and ruby red grapefruit from the hops.
Taste: A light, restrained sprinkling of light brown sugar atop lightly nutty, toasted wholesome oats. Fresh lemon and grapefruit citrus kicks, lightly citric, from the hops. Moderate bitterness. Leisurely dries out, leaving a juicy citrus taste on the smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: Blushing Ape has an agreeable citrusy character, but, with the addition of oats, it sits apart from the run-of-the-mill reds.
