3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
First off, I am not an APA fan. They are essentially an IPA without the sweetness and backbone. Where’s the malt to balance out the massive hoppiness? Anyway, this beer has some fruity notes up front with a hint of malt...before the hops reach up and bitchslap you. All in all, for an APA, this is a pretty good offering.

Had at the Walking Man Brewpub. Advertised ad "aggressively hopped" and the aroma complied. The rest of it was watery dishwater. Got slightly better as it warmed up.

Tap at Walking Man, Stevenson, 24/05/13.
Clear golden copper with a thin off white head.
Nose is caramel, sugars, fruits.
Taste comprises dark malts, caramel bite, light hops, biscuit notes.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweetish finish.
Ok drinkable effort however I expect a little more depth and complexity from a 6.5% beer.

Draft. Pours hazy dark orange with apub head. Decent lace. Aroma and palate are the same. Medium sweet caramel and candi malts, horse blanket, and light piney hops. Medium body, good carbonation, oily-stickly texture, and a solid earthy, bitter finish. Excellent pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Was surprised I hadn’t reviewed this, as i been drinking it a long time. "Floral" i think at first sniff, a mixed bouquet, plus honey & lemon. Clear amber with modest of white head. Light in the mouth, a little under-carbonated (on tap at brewpub). Zam come the hops, harsh grape fruit rind. sometimes a little caramel comes through, and alcohol. not too harsh a finsh
