hazy golden yellow body nearly too thick to allow its hilights to shine through brightly. lemon pepper and full; spicy pepper with lemon citrus twang. thin, prickly. nothing wanting me to want more. stales as it warms.

Medium amber color with a minimal white head. Just a touch of malt, with the bold citrusy hops. Not real impressive, but something you could drink on a hot day (at the brewpub).

Fresh floral hop aroma with notes of peaches and pears. Nice murky amber color, not much head, white. Flavor not quite right. A little plain. Overly carbonated.

Beautiful orange with a big off white head. Looks identical to the Rogue I2PA next to it, but lacks 80% of itís nose. Much is lacking from the taste as well. Nicely balanced, though. Very drinkable, but very light in the taste department!

Coming from a pretty good brewery. I love the appearance...bottle is sedimented like a hefe weizen. Of course I poured all those nice hops on in as well. The head has big and small bubbles; which I seem to find in lower quality brews. This has a fruity aroma with some grapefruit. Very cloudy and a full, rounded mouthfeel. Mine tastes a little old so I think it could be much better that it already tastes.

Not a bad APA, not great by any stretch of the imagination. They donít seem to be using the best hops, thus allowing more malt flavor than Iíd like to taste to come through. And Iím not sure if I deduct points for slurring my ethnicity in the beerís name...
