3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is all columbus rubber, appearance is an unfiltered gold color (with what I like to call "sea monkey" style yeast floaties, flavor is some mild citrus fruit hop notes and a lot of rubber, a dankness i attribute to columbus hops along with that rubber flavor i always taste with columbus hops, not any sort of hint at grain or malt in the flavor, probably all two row and maybe a sprinkle of wheat malt, this is certainly a quality ale and deserves your taste, it’s just not my flavor
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. dnstone (3404) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Pours a clear golden with big lacing white head. Light earthy pine hop aroma and flavor.

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. freekyp (2235) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2017
A solid APA with toasty malt backbone bolstering a fruity hop kick. Doughy aroma. Some citrus flavors. Clean finish with a long orangy fade. Pretty clear copper with a wispy slight head. Little lace. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016

Slightly cloudy golden color with a tiny white head.
Grainy and cookie malt... not much more... maybe some mild sweet hops... in the aroma.
The flavor is dry grainy malt, cookies, sweetish fruity hops and mild bitterness.
Bottle. hazy amber color with a small off-white head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with mixed citrus. The taste is somewhat fruity with grapefruit, melons, grapes and apricots. The palate and malt base is full and satisfying. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter grapefruit. Overall: decent. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle at the office. Mandarin and lemongrass. Piney/herbal notes. Definitely on the bitter side, finishing with a slightly biscuity wheat note that fades to an even slighter tinniness. Listigovers (1171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
