commonmac (1191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Tap at Fitgers Brewhouse in a pint glass. Blonderedhead also imbibing. Straw golden with a hue of orange distinguishing it from a standard domestic. Full finger of white head. Nice lacing. Nose is a slight floral citrus with a pine accent. Taste has plenty of bitterness as expected since hops are in charge. Not a lot of sweetness coming through. Pine and a citrus rind characteristic. Not for a non-hop fan. Relatively easy to drink but Im missing some balance. Average.

asheft (3061) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
On tap. Sweet candyish caramel aroma in balance with fresh grapefruit and cream. Crystal clear copper under a lasting thin white cover that laces the glass. Assertive bitterness and well attenuated caramel malt flavour with pine hops and faint grapefruit peel. Medium light body, medium carbonation, fairly crisp.

On tap at GTMW 2014
A reintroduction to Fitgers started with a basic session beer. Buried at its heart is that upper Midwestern niceness that asks for permission before smothering you in hops. Bright and citrusy, this draft exemplifies the typical Fitgers attention to detail.

Aroma / Appearance - A light coppery body shimmers in the bright summer afternoon light. Fluid with just a thin trace of head, the body slowly unfolds with waves of citrusy hops, mellow malts, and an understated nature that feels apt for a beer from Minnesota.

Flavor / Palate - A burst of citrus tickles the tongue. It then explodes with a rich flavor that carries into a crisp finish. A refreshing beer packed with flavor tempts one to stay and get more more pours. If this is a regular draft I will be ordering one when I visit Duluth some day.

Braudog (6632) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. This is a very good, textbook APA. It delivers a sturdy malt backdrop, then a slippery, citric hop flourish. A go-to choice. (#5675, 8/29/2014)

Bacterial (2960) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Few pours from a growler that was filled about 1.5 weeks ago. Nice copper color with a white head and white lacing. Nice hoppy nose and strong hop character in the taste. A bit too malty and bitter for my personal tastes on an APA, but pretty good.

Nero55 (933) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Draft. Light copper with small white head. Aroma of citrus and light pine hops. Medium/light body, medium pine hop bitterness and citrus notes with a dry bitter finish.
