On tap, Siskiyou Micro Pub, Ashland
Amber colour. Floral, tropical fruit aroma bursts from the glass. Balanced character of light fruitiness and toastiness. Very drinkable. Quality APA, on the more subdued side.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from PC Market of Choice in Ashland. Pours light copper with a creamy/bubbly white head. Smells a bit of light pitted fruit. Approaching med body. Flavor seems to have significant diacetyl. But there’s various fruit and mildly roasted malt to sort of cover for that. Barring the one problem it’s pretty refreshing. Rerate: With time the diacetyl thing sort of diminished. So I’m adding a point.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Porters in Medford:   Hazy amber, a bit on the darker side, large white frothy head, mild carbonation, nice lacing.   Mild hop nose, smidgen of earth, on the average.   A bit more earthy and soily on the tongue.   A little astringent, but at least a good hop bitterness for a Pale Ale.   A little citrus peel on the backside.   Fairly full bodied, nice nalt background.   Seems fairly smooth on the tongue as well.   Pretty good example, albeit my dislike of things too soily.

22. Pours a murky burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy, though short-lived, whitish head. Spotty lace. Mild caramel and grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, grapefruit mid-palate...this is fairly standard stuff for an APA. We’ve had this beer before, but it’s done with no obvious flaws. Appealing oiliness to the finish, nice crisp grapefruity wash on the end.

Nose has caramel malts, a touch of crystal malt, earthy hop notes and light citrus notes. Pours darker amber with a decently lasting creamy head and lace. More caramel, light tea notes, earthy hops, light floral and citrus notes as well. Bitterness is light. Tends to lean towards balanced with an almost heavier mouth feel than most in the style.

Thanks Hauduke. Pour is almost clear with a medium sized soapy head. Nose is distant and unremarkable. A nice beer to drink it offers spice and fruity hop notes. Caramel balances nicely. Those hops are just a tad astringent. They also have some pine oil. Everything softens with temperature and the hops gain some floral effects. The finish was a nice amalgamation of all of the above. Very drinkable and enjoyable.
