3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I enjoyed this one alot and was very ahppy when I saw that Anderson Valley was behind this. I have yet to be disappointed with anything from this brewer. A different feel than most APAs, a nicely balanced hoppy falvor that is smoothed out by the fruity finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light hazy auburn color prompty diminishing head and sticky loose lacing. Slightly sweaty hop aroma with underlining malt. Flavor is slightly hoppy but with a bitter acidic finish, slightly sour even. A different APA, don't know what they were trying here, but it isn't very balanced.

(mine was brewed in NY) Huge head and lasting lace. Scant aroma. Light malty palate that finishes with a touch of hop.

A quality beer by a quality brewing company. The flavor is a little malty and you can barley taste the hops. No flavors is really vivid. Small head and good color

BIG white head, BIG! BIG i say! Too damn big! Its coming right at me! HELLLLLP! Lots of carbonation, lots. Noseing it will steal your breath away. Hazy orange color. Probably some hops in the nose, hard to get by the CO2. Tingley on the tongue. Taste some hops and some sweet malts. Medium dry finish. Guess i should of let this brew breathe for awhile before quaffing it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, light amber/orange. Small head and lace. Citric hoppy aroma with hints of caramel, lemon, tea and malt. Thin to medium bodied, subtle malts, lemony/bitter hops, flavors reminicent of iced tea. Needs more body and malt development. Drinkable but not very exciting but for 99 cents a 22oz, im satisfied:) Gets better as it warms...hops integrate and malt comes out a bit.

Obviously this stuff will catch your attention. However, the best thing about this beer may be the bottle. Good color, but the taste and aroma were lacking. I would buy it again, but just for the bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22OZ bottle: Clear dark orange with a good sized head, strong orange rind aroma, weak mouthfeel, starts and ends a little bitter. Doesn't do much to stand out in the crowded American pale ale category.
