Nice strong bright white head of dense bubbles. Bit o cream on top. Initial slight skunkiness which dissipates to a plethora of citrus aromas, lemon, grapefruit and light grassy malts. Color is a mdium brownish orange. Substantial bitterness up front along with some light roasted grains and grapefruit pith. Little bit of dry chalkyness late swallow and lingering full on bitterness. A pretty good APA.

A coworker brought a 6er of this to our recent beer club meeting. Poured a slightly hazy dark gold with foamy white head. Aroma is extremely floral and lemony. Flavor totally reflects aroma. To me it tasted like someone literally took rose petals and soaked them in a keg of a very light apa. Almost a soapy lavender flavor to it. Overall, not really my thing. Very different from your typical apa.

(bottle). This a really nice APA. Clear golden-amber with enough carbonation to enhance the palate. The favor is a mild balanced malt with subtle sweetness. Perfect to session or enjoy just one for fun. I really enjoyed this on a hot spring day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Orange in color with mild haze. This APA is rather unique in that in addition to the standard Floral Hops, Caramel, Yeasts and Malts that we expect, there is also a rather sweet butterscotch flavor in here. At the same time, it manages to balance out the APA and Butterscotch flavors out quite well. It’s light in body and the carbonation is stronger than I would like, but it feels crisp and refreshing on the palate. Much like Prima Pils, it’s simple in flavor but it’s does exceptionally well with whatever flavors it contains.
