3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from a trade with Fletche00. Pours a hazy caramel color with a big, pillowy, cream colored head, and good lacing. The first thing on the nose is massive grapefruit, followed by some butterscotch, pine sap, and light resin. The flavor is sweet and juicy up front, with an aggressive hop bitterness in the finish. The bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, tapering off to a light sourness. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and chewy. Overall, this is a big, thick beer, especially given the ABV. The hop aroma is brilliant, but the bitterness is a little off-putting. Still, this is an very good pale ale.
Pours a clear gold body with a small wispy white head. The nose is floral and citrusy hops with a light pale malt base. The flavor is ok, but it’s a bit grainy for an APA, it obscures the hops quite a bit. The hops are a bit bland as well. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, this one was a bit of a letdown.

A pretty standard pale ale. Nice balance of caramel, toffee malts and some resin and citrus character. Tried at the Mass Ave Pub in Indy in 2016 with Matt and Guy. crossovert (13078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2016
355ml bottle. Amber pour. Stale nose of caramel and balsamic. Soem nougat. Falvor is citrus and caramel malt, maybe its not old by the taaste just a caramel forward and shitty apa.

Leider zu bitter im Vergleich zum Hopfengeschmack. Sehr schönes, fruchtiges Aroma nach Zitrusfrüchten. Geschmack unrund, astringend. Zunächst extrem bitter, danach wird es süßer. Karamell und Honig ergänzen den Hopfen.
Gut, aber durch die übermäßige Bittere leider nicht sehr gut. bubblehouse (1540) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2016
A pretty tasty pale ale. Has a good hoppy flavor and descent aroma. Pours a dark gold. weitz15 (588) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Light, citrus aroma accompanying a hazy yellow pour. A little sour for my taste. Lemon, citrus, wheat. Thechasm442 (1005) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle pour. Hazy apricot with an average white head and nice lacing. Aroma is tropical, with citrus and pine notes. Taste is citrus up front with pine and bread flavors. It finishes with more tropical fruit. Papaya and pine resin finish it out. Average thickness and a bit dry. Good beer. kaser (6313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Lemon and tropical notes. Had a taster at flat 12 and it was delicious. Orange with white head. Good shit
