Sample on tap at the Bridge in STL during RBSG. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good dots and bits of lace. Looks good considering my 1 ounce sample size. Caramel malt, light spicy hop. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Decent pale ale, but nothing special.

Tap at Millers in Chicago. Description hits it head on. Floral notes and crisp. Decent representation of the APA style. ----Hophaze out

Draft at Closed For Business. Clear light golden pour with a bubbly white head. Grassy, pine aroma with a hint of citrus and pale malts. Light bodied in profile with grass and piney hops the linger through the finish. Not terrible, but very average.

On tap at Boise airport. Pours a dark amber with a thin straw colored head. Good hop palate right off the bat with a lingering bitterness. First time I’ve had this beer. Rather enjoyable. I could see having a couple very easily.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark, hazy orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and sweet malt. Taste is similar. Pretty good.

12 oz. bottle at Applewood BBQ on Kiawah. Poured hazy copper with huge fluffy white head. Grass and sweet malty flavor. Rather thin. Weak stuff.
