Draught at brewpub. Orange hue. Nice floral aroma. Solid hoppy presence. "This is good," I said. Very enjoyable. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Growler thanks to csbosox: Pours a hazy copper orange with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh citrusy grapefruity hops and some semi-sweet pale malt. Body starts with a nice mild sweetness and good fresh citrusy hoppy balance before a crisp, bittersweet finish. A very drinkable and well-flavored APA. Thanks Chris!

At the brewpub ... Yellow-orange and hazy. Little sticky head. Very nice grapefruity hoppiness on a well balanced beer. I really enjoyed this one.

Pint on tap. Mostly clear orange-copper with a lasting film of bubbles. Nose is resin, green herb and orange. Tastes the same with some metallic notes. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a decent balance. heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Growler purchased on Dec. 6, 2008 and drank two days later. The body is cloudy medium gold with a long lasting bright white head. The aroma is nice grapefruit and fresh baked bread. There is also some good fresh cut green wood. The taste is medium orange peels and grass. There is also some Russet potato skin. Overall, this is a very solid, highly hopped APA. Nicely done.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark gold body with a small, creamy white head.
Smell: Heady aroma of grass and lemon zest citrus notes as well as some sugar-encrusted pale malts.
Taste: Pale malts start with a taste of sweetened lemon juice. Grass follows quickly with a medium bitterness. The bitterness ends abruptly allowing some subtle hints of sweetened citrus to return for the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: It’s hard to be smarmy with a beer like this in your hand.
