Dark amber pour at the Surdyk’s in MSP Terminal 2 waiting for my flight. Very little head, but it was also served in a cold glass, which is bad bad bad. Bad. Nice biscuit nose with a big hoppy nose (pine and floral). Hoppy, some bitterness and a strong malt taste with a dry bitter finish. ColovianTrader (464) - - MAY 17, 2014
Nutty caramel, pine, floral hops. Light fruit and grains with hints of citrus. Felt a bit light in the body, and not enough carbonation to clean out the aftertaste. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2014
On tap. Aroma has notes of toasted caramel malts and bittering hops. Deep hazy amber hue with a small off-white head that left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is medium bodied and oily with an average carbonation. Overall a good brew. johnnymusky (983) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2014

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orange to amber hue with a thin, quickly dissipating head. A light malty hop aroma with a hint of spice. Bitter taste of malt, caramel, and pine.

Kind of an odd, yet not bad brew. Poured at a good temperature with a huge, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that slowly settled and decent lacing. Color is a clear medium amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is fresh beer, caramel malt, and mild hop. Flavor is like nose, hop flavor comes out a little more. There’s more hop bitterness than flavor. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, drinkable, yet rather forgettable. philvil (176) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Good texture but syrupy sweetness drowns out the hop flavors. Some spiciness like a holiday seasonal. Doesn’t have the crispness I’m looking for in an APA cards04 (2822) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 7, 2013
I think this is a really nice APA. Aromas of soapy hops and caramel. Flavors are bitter and tangy citrus hops with a nice malty backbone. Very nice. freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours clear golden copper with of white head. The aroma is earthy citrus hops and toasted grains. The flavor is somewhat muted toasted grain with a rich very dry earthy pine floral hop thing that is peculiar. Decent brew but not quite all there. AWISLguy (3180) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours an unclear amber color with a faint white head. Aroma has pine and caramel, and more toasty, caramelly malt. Taste is of sweet caramel, faint pine and a lot of resin. Medium bodied and fairly thick for a pale. Shrug? Not the type of take on the style that is enjoyable.
