Bottle sampled from shigadeyo at the Dilly Deli. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate smooth sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Moderate bitter flavor with a smooth medium bitter finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

argo0 (14028) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2007
(12oz bottle) Crystal clear light amber body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral/orange, some caramel, light grapefruit. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, some caramel, light pineapple, bread. Light-medium body, quite drinkable. This is straightforward, but flavorful and well done -- fits squarely within the APA style. On some days theres a decent chance Id call it boring and give it around a 3.2, but for whatever reason, it works well tonight.

Lubiere (13566) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2009
A golden blonde ale with a thin white head. Pungeant floral c-hops, grapefruit, biscuitty. In mouth, a light pale ale with light resinous, rather weak in mouth. On tap at brewpub, August 16 2009.
Earlier Rating: 12/12/2004 Total Score: 4
Draft. Golden ale with an intense floral aroma, very resinous. Very hoppy in mouth, due to lower gravity and high hops (Brewer sitting next to me). Excellent balance. Im trying to imagine what the IPA is like.(June 2004).
