1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Near gusher from a pint can cracking the can immediately results in tart berries, cardboard oxidization and lots of band aid. Cloudy, dirty copper pour with a huge, chunky, beige head. Aroma of, cardboard oxidization, caramel, citrus, lots of berry and tree fruit, earthy funk, butterscotch and band aid. Flavor is tons of oxidization, green wood, earthy funk, metal, tart berry and stone fruit, light citrus, light pine, grass and lots of plastic-laden band aid. Light, dry body with a very strong, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. Lots of off flavors here, definitely seems like some sort of infection, especially with the insanely explosive pour that still manages to leave a huge carbonation and off style funk and acidity. Not very good, obviously, but interesting.
Sample from tap at the Omaha Beer Fest 2017. Pour was hazy golden with a white head. Aroma was fruity, citrus, hops. Taste was mild bitter, grapefruit rind, orange, citrus. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JUN 23, 2013

On tap at the brew pub in Okoboji. Pretty average APA - my opinion is that the hops aren’t as present as advertised. igneous1 (1535) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2013
cloudy, golden color, HUGE, frothy almond-colored head. nose is grassy hops, slight amount of malt and not a lot else. flavor is grassy hops with a somewhat plasticy character (don’t mean that in a bad way). finish is mildly bitter. pretty decent overall.

Tallboy can to snifter. Heavy heady foamy pour with half fluffy foam,very hazy pale looks like apricot purree.
Aroma is a heavy spice possibly oxidized aroma,kind of belgiany, with overripe fruits,something funky like with garlic/onion.Soapy ripe fruit. Not really the typical character of Centennial/Cascade hop interpetation Im use to.
Taste is wet,kind of too foamy, that belgiany spicey ripe fruit hop taste, kind of a harsh citrusy bitter. Taste is kind of funky for a pale ale. Has some woody dryness also.Ok,not bland but doesnt seem very solid. Dont really care for the overall flavor/taste it has I guess. Bjshades (156) - Iowa, USA - FEB 14, 2013

Can shared thanks to John. Pours out an attractive, mostly clear golden color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of citrus, grass, caramel and light toast. Taste is wet bread, light citrus, some mild grassy hops, mild grains. dmac (6262) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Can shared by jcwatts. Poured a clear light amber body with a foamy light beige head. Aroma of pineapple, touch of chocolate, medium done toast and some bread crusts. The body is watery with light carbonatin that finishes watery with a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is a step down from the aroma, notes of seltzer water, earthy chocolate, orange slices, citrus notes and some old bread. Meh, nothing special. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2013
