Aroma is a little light but otherwise this is a solid APA. Good orange color with lots of bubbles and a solid head. Aroma is bread with some spicey citrus notes. Taste is mild toffee with some citrus. Nice bittering effect at the end. ccex (1286) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2012
12 oz bottle pours a clear golden amber color with moderate white head. Aroma has very noticeable citrus and floral hops and some caramel malts. Taste is slightly bitter with a chalky, nutty finish. Body is light to medium without too much carbonation. Easily drinkable and very enjoyable. JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Yellow, orange color, small head very slight haze. Citrus hops, slight malt sweetness. Flavor fairly bitter for the style and the amount of hops flavor. Sweet finish. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Got this one as part of the sampler at the brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Not particularly bitter for a pale, but pretty good beer. Dark yellow pour with a thin head, light nose of lemon and flowers, mild bitterness and hoppiness. Okay. csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2008
12oz bottle. ~10mo old bottle. Wildflower honey and orange in the aroma along with a little biscuit. Smells great. Hazy copper color with a small, but pretty, off-white head. Taste is resiny and bitter with citrus and light pine. The malt shows itself briefly, near the end, but the finish is all hops and hops bitterness. I wonder what this is like fresh, probably a good old Wisconsin Hop Bomb similar to Ale Asylum’s Hopalicious.

Light orange color, HUGE stationary head (I think this one got a double shot of the CO2) that remained for the entire brew, some lacing. Aroma is apples, pears, and a cheerio like aroma. Sweet malt and citrus are the dominating flavors although a little spice is also present. Decent carbonation, thin bodied. A solid APA. doubelknv3 (1093) - Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Very light, mild citrus aroma. Golden, carbonated with white head. Citrus, sour fruit (apricot?) and metallic flavor notes. Lack of hop notes; watery with mild bitter finish. DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours a lighter reddish orange. No head. Aroma of malt, and light citrus hop notes. Flavor is strong and dominated by hops. Piney hops. Palate is thin overall. A decent brew. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2009
nose of light resin. appearance is strictly blonde. flavor is of pine and well bittered for the style. excellent malt background comes to light late in the game. hard to distinguish such balance and still have good hop character in an APA, so many fail. palate is thin and nearly watery. overall hops are prevelant enough as described in the commercial description (addressing a gripe i have verbalized before) but palate seems to fail. still quite drinkable.
