At Snallygaster. More and more we’re seeing beers that don’t precisely fit Ratebeer’s style categories. This is none of those. Both light smoke and hops come through in equal measure. Clever, exceptional beer. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Tap at Sam’s Blue Light. Pours a slightly hazy straw orange with a steady white head. Nose is smokey, tobacco, light citrus, grassy hops. Flavor is a bit disjointed for me with the smoke cutting into the hops and it just doesn’t harmonize all that well. An fun beer to try though.

On draft at scion restaurant in dc. Pours a cloudy copper with an off white head. Subtle peach aroma. Grassy hop flavors finishing with some bitterness. Travlr (24826) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Draft. Cloudy golden yellow color, small white head, solid lacing. Aroma of smouldering fruit and bread dough. Taste is full bodied candied fruit with a burned edge. Very nice. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2012
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. Lighter copper orange pour. Touch of bonfire smoke in the aroma. Citrusy bitterness with hint of smoke in the flavor. Nice hop flavor, fresh, smoke adds aunique flavor. I like it

Location/Date:Draft on August 14th at Smoke & Barrel’s Great Lakes XMas in August event. Volsconti (21) - - APR 21, 2012
Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange copper.
Aroma: Aroma is of faint smoke.
Taste: Medium bitterness, some malt balance, some smoke.
Palate: Medium body, quick finish.
Summary: A really enjoyable APA with some smoke undertones, my only fault with it is the aroma isn’t very strong.
Very tasty but extremely dry. This is a one and done beer but a must try.

from a growler courtesy of Jill, this is a smoke ale rather than an APA in my opinion, the strong taste of smoked ham (with the brown sugar) really works here, if you’re expecting it... no real hop presences here to me. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Draft at Sugar Maple. Orange-brown, unfiltered. Smoky, but relatively balanced. Medium bodied, well executed. Mild hop balance. The smoke shines, but it remains drinkable. Well done, true to style despite the obvious differences. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Cask at the brewpub. Orange pour with a white head. Smokey, ham, and some biscuity malt to go along with soft hop presence. Good stuff.
