BVery (10609) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle. Clear yellow gold pour, white head. This one is pretty dull - nothing really standing out in this. Just a bland pale.

2.9
GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Tap at Capital Brewing in Middleton, WI. Hazy blonde pour with decent head formation. Nose is mild orange citrus, celery. Flavor is very dense for style like a lot of Capital’s beers: thick and chewy, salty, big bready malt base, some celery flavors.

arminjewell (9687) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Pours amber with white head, aroma is citrusy with a bit of malt. Taste up front is orange and lemon, tangy, and heads into a bit of bready/caramel sweetness that bitters a bit at the end. Not a bad session beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2007
On tap at GTMW. Poured a clear bright golden with a short white head. Aroma picked up soft bready and caramel notes.. not much else.. not very complex. Flavor had a sweet caramel and grapefruit middle with pleasant grapefruit and floral bitterness.. tasty and simple with a short bready and pine finish. Very sessionable. Creamy middle on the palate with light-moderate bitterness.. lighter-bodied.

2.8
Strykzone (7430) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Light golden clear beer with a decent off white head. A nice hop aroma with some caramel malt. Earthy flavor a nice hop / malt balance. Light fruit, spice, and floral tastes. No adjuncts noticed. A zesty feel. American Pale Ale Lite might describe this one.

3.2
CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of fairly fresh, slightly resiny grapefruity hops with some mild sweet pale maltiness. Body starts semi-sweet with some grainy pale malty character balanced with some piny flavoring and bittering hops toward a semi-dry finish. Pretty drinkable, but not as assertive as some APAs.

3.3
wlajwl (6886) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Citrus and a hint of tea in the aroma. The flavor is mildly hoppy with the malts, possibly caramel, almost tipping the flavor towards more malty than hoppy. Not really as hoppy as most APAs are but a decent session ale and not too far from the standard of the style.

3.4
Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Draft in the brewery beer garden. Prototypical APA visuals. Drinks with a bit of a malty bite up front, and just a bit of light fruit. Great option for the beer garden. (#5135, 7/4/2013)

vyvvy (6524) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Thanks to terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours golden / copper with a large rocky off-white head. The aroma has lightly toasted smooth malt with spicy / piny hops. Medium crisp body with lots of sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with oxidization, dry caramel malt and spicy hops. The finish is about the same. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a fresh bottle and get in a rerate.
