Bottle. Very dark amber color, tan head. Aroma of floral pine, caramel biscuit. And someone wrote "morning breath" in my notebook, but it’s not my handwriting, so I won’t count it in the score. Taste is very bitter caramel. bhensonb (15353) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle from Vintage Cellar. Amber color with a smallish off-white head. Nice aromas of roasted caramel and fruit. Medium body with light, creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly roasted malt with some fruity bitter. It’s not a harsh bitter. With a little less ABV it might do as an ESB. Pretty good drink. djd07 (15106) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2016

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. This APA was much better than I was expecting. A great example of a microbrew APA, this is exactly how I would make it! Thick head over a dark amber body. Nice bittering effect and good finish. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2003
