12 oz. can. Pours clear golden color with a soft soapy white head that leaves a wispy film and thin collar. Aroma has soft pine and citrus with an easy malt backing. Taste is bitter pine grapefruit citrus and the malt rounds this off nicely. Palate is thin to medium with a chalky dry finish. Solid APA!

nose is clean, wet grains fairly balanced with lightly acidic fruity hops. soapy head atop well polished gold body fades with moderate speed. flavor is inverse of nose - hops first; lip smacking lime, grapefruit. grains wash out later leaving palate refreshed. metallic twinge enters nose later.

12 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co. with a clear golden hue, frothy and fairly lasting, soft white head foam, and good cling to the ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was expressive and sweetened grapefruit & tropical fruit notes, along with a smooth but light maltiness. Fresh, light to medium bodied, lively carbonated, with a medium hop bitterness that was nicely in harmony with the malt. Crisp, clean and very sessionable.

Draft to taster. Looks decent; light for an APA though. A transparent light gold with white head and lively carbonation. Smells solid; citrus and passionfruit hops with a nicely balanced semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a touch of mango too. Nice and light on the palate. A good example of the style.

Draft. Pours a pale gold with a white head of foam. Aroma is citraus and juicy tropical fruits. Mango perhaps. Taste is that juicy tropical fruit again and that reigns throughout. This is a great APA.

Pours golden orange with a big creamy white head. The aroma brings pleasant sweet citrus notes from the hops, so nice. The flavor is a bit crisp and juicy at the same time, excellent for the summer. The hops settle easily and smoothly on the tongue, not biting at all.

Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Has a Nice little piney hoppy bite. A perfect amount of spicy peppery taste also that adds alot. Very crisp and refreshing, easy to drink but nice hop profile. Has a nicely balanced grainy malt back end to it. Really good pale ale.
