3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle from cellar (54F). Pours a very nice dark gold, two finger head. Head is pretty darn persistent and leaves a load of lacing on the glass. Don’t get a lot of aroma from this, but I’m eating a spicy cheese shrimp jambalaya so I’m sure that’s affecting things. The aroma that I get is a bit of pine resin with a bit of citrus. Tastes clean, crisp, and is going with the meal quite well. Nice bitterness with a touch of sweetness mid-swallow. Medium long finish. Nice beer with dinner.
22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Caramel, some floral, and bready. Scotty001 (573) - Portlethen, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Poured hazy orange amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of moderate floral hops. Medium body, flavour of pine, light lemon and soft malt. bookman10 (1174) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2016
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow, with minimal head. Aroma and flavor are primarily grassy. Some sweet breadiness in the flavor, too. Not too distinguished, really. Bif (2306) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - SEP 10, 2016

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a small, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Mild aroma of caramel malt and a hint of grapefruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, orange and biscuit with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty.

7%ABV. Pale Ale.
Poured out dark Amber. 14ºSRM.
Nose has a deeply sweet malty funk, a little like drying raw cane liquor. Ester like overripe fruit aroma as well. Malted candy fullness in the nose like taffy as it cools.
Mouthfeel is watery soapy. Palate has some nice toasted malt flavors with graham cracker, animal biscuits, pop tarts and lightly browned wheat toast. Hops are spicy with chili peppers, serranos, cilantro, some coriander. There is pine, grass and an enduring herbaceous bitter.
Finish is brief and with a nice resurgent bitter that slowly builds then fades. Very nice.

Big bottle in Seaside, OR. Hazy copper body with slight head. Nose is floral, caramel and citrus. Taste is caramel, bread and hops and citrus. Pretty good. Mark_Eck (1998) - - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle. Pours a golden orangish color. Aroma and taste are citrus and pine. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Pours amber copper with a one finger off white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, bready malts, sweet malts, caramel, and some grassy hops. Taste is about three same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice, well balanced APA that might be tad to malty for my tastes and has a high abv for the style.
