Tap @ Big Daddy's BBQ: Clear copper color with a juniper hop aroma. Hop leaning but with a great balanced finish of hops and malts. Solid APA.

12 ounce can given to me by neighbor. Good neighbor! This is a dang fine APA. Flavor backed off a tad toward end of pint glass. That said, you should try this ale for yourself!

hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 2, 2017
A draft pour at the RBSG 2017 in Boise. Pours a clear orange with a robust long lasting light head. Nose of citrus and pine, along with some tropical fruit. Medium in body with a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is a nice mixture of malt and hops, and there is a lot to like here. Dry moderately bitter finish keeps the squarely in the APA range. One of my favorite beers here. Very drinkable.

Can, picked up at Brewer’s Haven... I really need to get down and visit these guys; embarassing that I haven’t done that yet. Floral and citrus hop aroma is sweet and inviting. Good use of hop flavors, more citrus and floral, a bit of piney goodness. Supportive pale malt keeps it in the APA arena. It’s hoppy, but soothing and sessionable. Great to have this available in cans!

Type: 12-oz. can Glass: Modern Times willybecher pint From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho Price: $9.99 for a variety 6-pack Purchased: April 21, 2017 Consumed: April 26, 2017 Reviewed as: American Pale Ale Misc.: No canned on date Picked this up with five others at Whole Foods on a recent work rip to Boise and later grabbing five more at Bier:Thirty. Had wanted to make it out to Boise Brewing, but never did. Hoping to be in the 3.70-3.80 range. Poured a light amber cloudy color with 2-to-3 fingers of off-white rocky head. Very light bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Outstanding foamy lacing. World-class foamy head. (Sight - 4.25) Smelled a pleasant whiff of hops of front, mainly Mosaic, Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade. Also mango, passion fruit, mixed berries, pine, floral and stone fruit. Very nice on the nose. (Smell - 4.25) Taste wasn’t nearly as good. Reading the can, I was mostly wrong on the hops. Not as familiar with the Idaho 7 hops, although I did not care for it in Alpine’s Singled Out Idaho 7 beer I had awhile back. Got spicy Simcoe, mango, passion fruit and bitter pine. (Taste - 3.75) Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. (Feel - 3.75) Really liked this one. Might have overrated it just a smidgeon. (Overall - 4.00) 3.95 89 B+
