3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden straw color. Very spicy nose. Huge smell.As for the taste: Zing! - sharp bitterness, with a touch of sweetness. A lot of hops. And more hops. And a sort of odd lingering off flavor finish. Meh. This beer is fine if you’re into really hopped beers. Me? I like a little more balance, especially in something called a "Session Ale."
Lightly hazed golden colored liquid. Tallish, big bubbled off-white head. Pale, malts, cookies, dough and green fresh hops in the aroma. Sweet pale malt start that seem to wander the whole way through. Seems a bit worty with green hops and malt sugars. Citric zest really takes over in the finish and into the linger. 3/11

12oz bottle pours out a peach color topped with white head. Nose is big dank hops honey sweetness and a nice bread malt. Taste is more of the heavy dank hops sweet malts and a nice end . A great session ipa for sure Don2711 (481) - - MAY 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 Full of flavour and aroma. Very hoppy for strength. Good IPA. Sharp on palate but good strength. Second pint was improvement. Caramel spice and molasses all in there. slowrunner77 (12162) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 2, 2014
"this has to be destined to become one of the best apas (or ipa lite’s) out there if enough people try it. the problem is it’s $3+ for a single of a session ale with no sixers. but damn, is it good. i can’t beleive a 4% beer can be so jam-packed with flavor and aroma. this easily outdistanced Pursuit of Hoppiness, Trout Hop Black IIPA, Great Divide Fresh Hop Pale, Deadlift, and Back in Black in a tasting. Unanimously. The aroma is huge of grassy floral hops with bitter grapefruit in the flavor. Holy crap. It’s not even very light bodied at 4% but I was dreaming of kicking back with several in a night... 2nd favorite apa next to Alpha King." Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 24, 2014
@Erzbierschof’s 3rd anniversary; courtesy of Dana Marie - quite hazy dark amber-orange beer with no head retention; the aroma is grassy, caramelish and spicy; medium-bodied and with a late herbal bitterness; more spicy hops, caramel and lemongrass in the finish

A nice bitter and Hoppy session beer. Seems like a pale ale with a slightly malty finish. Had a bottle Pour at home. Copper in color with a tan head

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 12 ounce bottle (Enjoy by 11/10/2010) poured into a tulip. Pours an opaque apricot yellow with a finger of off-white head. Light webby lacing. Aromas of caramel, sweet candied fruit, nutty, bread, citrus. Tasting notes of bitter grapefruit, pine, wheat, bread. Medium body with a semi-dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Obviously the hops have fallen apart but it’s still somewhat drinkable. Banksiz (137) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Resiny nose with a very slight corny-vegetable off-flavor. Pleasant slightly oily body. Bitterness was a little hard and astringent, with bitter finish. Flavorful, but didn’t quite work for me. BelgianBeerGal (4087) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Sun Devil Liquor bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brown-orange color with a small white head and no real lacing. Fruity aroma but also some darker molasses in there too; interesting. Definitely some bitterness in the flavor and again some molasses like bite. Lingering bitterness in the finish. Pretty big flavor for a small ABV. bwa5879 (947) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Very cloudy orange/brown pour with half inch white head. Smells like sweet honey and floral hops, sweet and delicious. Light carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Salty seemingly tropical or sandy finish. Lots of floral hops and biscuity malt. Flavor is overall melon-like quality with some nice bitterness and sour. Mild cool slightly sour easy drinking session ale with unique, bright quality. Pretty complex session ale, very nice.
