Not sure why some low ratings. I live down the street so Im probably bias. Very good, drinkable beer with nice florals and finish.

12 oz bottle pours a cloudy orange amber with wisps of something darker floating around inside. Has a decent white head and good lacing. Aroma is first pine, then grapefruit, followed by sweet candy malt. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Body is medium with a sticky mouthfeel. A decent APA I hope to try again.

hondajunkie (90) - Tinley Park, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured vigarously into Duvel tulip a adrk amber color giving offwhite 2 finger head a sticky lacing. Aromas of pine first then light grapefruit & citrus notes,bubble gum. Has the citrusy hop taste upfront followed by a light tatsing malty middle with a quiet piney finish. Like others,I had originaly thought this one was an IPA, but find out it is a APA and tastes and I rated as such.. Oddly, some bottles from the same 6pk tasted slightly different then others. Would buy again for sure.

backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle. Amber in color with a slight white head. Light citrus aromas, but not much else. The Cascade hops are nicely balanced with some sweet caramel malt. A very sessionable beer. Just remember APA not IPA. I have seen low ratings on this for various reasons; diacetyl, metallic, sour, etc. I tasted none of the sort.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at Mars Cheese Castle. Light golden pour with a one finger white head. Citrussy hop aroma and flavor. Hop forward, could be an IPA. Good mouthfeel and a nice accompaniment to the grilled chicken sandwich. Very tasty would definitely get another in the rupture.

bytemesis (7435) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber orange with a large white had that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, pine resin, and a touch of caramel. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet with a light bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Quite nice, actually.

stuckinprague (43) - - OCT 22, 2012
Aroma: Light and floral. Appearance: Brown with a dissipating head. Taste: Very nice flavours. Citrus upfront, a touch of caramel malt from the Crystal and Munich and backed up by a floral hop flavour and bitterness. Palate: Typical of pale ale, good session beer. Overall: Good as most pale ales, the hop flavour is fairly unique and the floral flavours come through strongly with citrus notes. I like this beer.... but Im a big fan of APAs.
