SFtaster (70) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 5, 2016
More of an IPA than an APA, but who’s complaining? As the label guarantees, this beer has a hop-forward approach. The floral & citrus profile has enough malt to round out the flavor and feel on the palate. The brewery is located in San Diego Co where hops are big, bold, and beautiful. Fun fact: ’Green Flash’ refers to an optical phenomenon at sunset. When the atmospheric conditions are right, the setting sun produces a flash of light in the visible green spectrum when the sun dips below the horizon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_flash drpimento (3734) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2016

Sweetish, fruity and quite grainy taste of straw, grains, citrus and honey, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little grassy and quite grainy finish.

Delicious stantheman (1098) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Small bottle from Bottle Jockey in Burnaby. A nice orange amber colored beer with moderate almost white head. The nose is indistinct, most likely due to the fact that I neglected the nose until emptying the glass. Har! A lovely pale ale with a hopiness that would match some IPAs. Nicely balanced with malt in the background. Slightly bitter aftertaste. 3.9 hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 18, 2016
$1.85 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours golden with an inch of beige head. Smells like sweetened rose/peace iced tea. Taste is pine, rose hips, citrus peel, orange. Good amount of flavor! ExpendableHero (925) - Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Amber colored beer with a white head. Aromas of pine needles. Tastes of pine hops, some herbal notes, caramel, and biscuit. I did not notice any fruit flavors here, this was all hops for the most part. Bitter pine resin finish. Refreshing and has a decent malt balance to it.
