3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had tried a small sample at the brewery that afternoon, so was happy to get a shaker pint on draft at Bodega in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a clear golden amber with not much of an off white head. The aroma is citrus fruit, grass, and a nice undertone of grass and mineral. The taste is a fresh cracker malt, along with a light bitter sweetness balanced with grass and grapefruit citrus hop. There is a hint of pine present as well, which adds depth to the flavor. The palate is medium bodied, with crisp carbonation and the mineral dry clean finish. Definitely my kind of beer, very tasty.
12 ounce can at home. One inch white head. Maize in color. Smell the hops and citrus, but not to much in hop taste. Not much after taste and easy to drink. Average beer for the style. Cheers! GenDV138 (7828) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2017

RB says this is my 200th APA, at least for now. Can. Nose very foamy, minerally, fruity, hoppy, probably overcarbed, certainly messy. Orange peel and paper, I would say. Pour a hazy orange with a large soapy off-white head. Taste relatively dry, just a hint of citrus sweetness, medium to high resin, lots of tropical fruit rind, peel, very highly perfumed and somewhat oily. Liking the strong tangerine tones. Very much redeemed itself after the earliest moments. Clean, crisp, very fresh tasting, but still too airy, cleanses the palate very nicely. Medium-full body.
