3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a copper color with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is soft with sweet malts and mild hops. The flavor is biter and sweet with pine resins and caramel malts working in a nice balance. The palate was just a bit light, and the carbonation was lively. Finishes short and clean. Overall: A good everyday ale.

Nice prominent honey and tea aroma. Clear amber. Solid tea flavor with a sweet honey finish. Not a lot of complexity, but a pleasure to drink. More EPA than APA.

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho. Had on cask and on tap, both were really good. Aroma was killer, bright with hops. flavor was dry and drinkable and hoppy.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2010 Bottle from Valley Farm. Aroma is quite bitter. Seems too have a strong pine scent. Dry and bitter. Pretty good hoppiness for an APA. Bitter throughout. Pretty easy drinking.

It has a spicy smell, which I like. I like the taste, not as mild as I usually like, but the aftertaste is very strong. Overall, I like the beer in general, but it has a distinct taste.
