This is a fantastic apa! Fruity, not quite the IPA/apa I’m accustomed to, but the perfect grass mowing beer. Tangerine orange delicious!!

Excellent color and aroma a sweet citrusy hoppy flavor and evidence abounds of a secondary bottle conditioning. A delicious hoppy american pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I can see why this won Gold at GABF! Delicious Pale Ale with a phenomenal hop aroma, light body and ABV. Citrus in the nose, with some fruity yeast characters. Big fan and I could drink this all day!

That’s what I’m talking about.

6 pack from Four Firkins in St. Louis Park MN.

Bought it because it was a GABF gold medal winner for my favorite category...so I pretty much had to buy it. It did not disappoint. This is a great beer. Nice frothy 1" head and very pleasing gold color. Aroma...fresh hops...just as it should be, with a slightly fruity twist. Very pleasing texture, perfect for quaffing and enjoying it like a man should, not sipping like some wine sissy boy. The taste is incredibly fresh, bold, floral hop dominated with just the right amount of bitterness to anchor the whole thing. I concur with its gold medal standing.
