Tap sample at OBW. Poured clear copper hue with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate aroma of citrus hops and sweet malt. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor of malt and hops with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid drinkable brew.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with a fairly bitter hops character that has some citrus and pine notes. Notes of malt in the background as well. The finish is hoppy with a short mildly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Sampled from a growler) A nice hoppy aroma starts this beer off, which pours a clear amber, with a nice white head, and visible carbonation. Crisp clean hop flavor, but not too much there on the bittering side. Light on the palate. This is a decent beer, very approachable, but not the hop smack in the face I’m looking for with an APA.
