Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus hops and some caramel malts. Flavor is decently hoppy with the citrus hops. Decent bitter finish as well. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Thanks to cheapdark, I got to enjoy this fine brew. Good tasting APA, lingers in the IPA territory (no complaint from me). Amber/copper in color, huge head, largest I’ve seen. Aroma of floral hops, well balanced, smooth beer. For APA territory,--good beer. I owe you cheapdark! jcr (2719) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. Clear amber body with a frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Malty aroma of toasted grain and caramel. Note of citrus hops and hint of earthiness and raw grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The beer has just a hint of raw grain, but it doesn’t go there. Nice balance. Hop spiciness tempers the caramel and malts. Solid APA.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a HUGE fizzy head that makes me wonder about infection before I even start. Approach with the nose indicates it’s probably OK... caramel malt, apple juice, a little bit of orange peel or some citrusy hops. First sip indicates this is infected. My rating, therefore, is more indicative of QC than the beer itself. I will rerate this when I get a chance. weihenweizen (3885) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear amber with small beige head. Some lacing, low carbonation, and watery texture. Taste rye malt, some pine, and finishes dry herbal bitter hops.

Poured from a bottle. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thick white head of foam. Nice bubbly lacing sticking to the glass. Aroma is piney and sweet. Taste is sweet initially, but then moves on to an herbal, pine hop presence and a sweet and piney finish. Dry, yet smooth and refreshing. This is really a delicious beer. I wish it was a little more readily available. ganache (5953) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle. Nose a nice blend of lively PNW hops with a clear-cut rye addition and light caramel. Clear orange pour with a rocky tan head. Taste bittersweet and full of hop juice without the resin, floral with a dryish aftertaste (actually where the most bitterness lies). Mild and smooth light, non-watery body. Very good for an APA! decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Copper/amber pour with off white head and lace. Light caramel malt, paper, and a hinto citrus. Light caramel malt, and a very light finishing bitter. A tad thin and watery but easily drinkable. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2011
This starts with a mild hop aroma, with a hint of rye. Pours a clear reddish-amber with a full white head. Clean hop bite, with a moderate finish. A middle of the road beer. jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 11, 2011
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours dark golden with a cream colored head. Aroma of light citrus hops, mild pale malts, and a hint of nuts. Flavor the same. Average texture and a good beer.
