Cask at Brazen Head. Clear copper/orange with a fairly substantial head considering the cask pour. Bright citrus and floral hop aroma. Fresh tasting orangey and tea hop flavor, with a bit of spice and citrus zest bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied with a smooth non-carbonated real ale palate, making it very drinkable. The alleged 8.4% ABV is imperceptible. I’m actually wondering why this is designated here as an APA rather than an "American Strong Ale."

Tap at Chelsea brewery. Poured a copper hue with a thin beige head. Nose was citrusy. Front of citrus hops. Creamy mouthful. Abv easily hidden behind a decent malt base. Hints of orange and spice with a hint of sweetness in the finish. . Pretty easy to drink. Worthwhile.

8.25% ABV so they say. You don’t really taste it all that much though. Amarillo hops used in it, so says Brewer Mark. Berry-cherry aroma. Nice syrupy Christmas taste. Just mellow enough--not over the top on the flavoring attempt.

Tap @ Barcade. Clear brown with some off white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and a light grassy note. Very bitter, fairly full bodied, more grass/earthiness on the palate. A very solid, flavorful, pale ale.

Had it on tap at the brewery. Reminded me a lot of holiday ales from Seattle - Maritime Pacific’s Jolly Roger to be specific. High alcohol dominates - tastes higher than it actually is (more like barleywine-level).

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Draught at Jimmy’s No 43, Fair head, lastingrough, earthy, very rich. plums, and lemons and wood
