(En fût à la source): Entre les fines herbes et le gazon frais coupé dans un décor teinté par la fraise et les céréales miellées. Très gruitesque.

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a medium, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of biscuit malt, caramel, orange, tangerine, grass and pine. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, biscuit, peach, orange peel, lemon grass and light pine with a dry, bitter hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Ok.

Wow! Buddy bought a 6-pack of this beer at Smiley Creek Store, near Stanley, ID. There to watch 100% solar eclipse. This ale is the real deal...!

Had this from the bottle in Laramie WY. Our first night out on the 60th motorcycle trip with Marc Caron. Nice citrusy hops balanced with light malt and 6% alcohol. I really enjoyed this. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (937) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2017
Pours orange. Head is white, creamy, and the brew retains a visible lacing. Aroma is a mix of caramel and blood orange. Tart, with a citric bitterness. Finishes the same. Body is medium, and the beer leaves a rich, smooth feel in the mouth. Good.

Bill Becker (1775) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 24, 2017
Bottled May 5th. Clear orange until the bottom of the bottle where it gets a bit hazy. It’s bottle conditioned. Smells of floral hops, cracker malt, kinda fruity. Good balanced APA. Floral hop smell translated to a mild slightly grassy bitterness. And that gets tempered by a firm malt presence of biscuit and cracker. The finish is the zenith of the bitter notes but again, it comes across as relatively mild because of that tasty balance. This has been an old favourite of mine once the brewer rebranded this from IPA to APA.

Pours a clear golden with big lacing white head. Light earthy pine hop aroma and flavor. Notes: on tap at the brew pub, June ’17

HourGlass13 (1046) - North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2017
Pours up a thick murky orange color with a beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel and toasted malts, with light citrus notes. Flavor is sweet, almost burnt caramel, some orange rind. There is no sharp bite and a decent juicy body. Easy drinker.
