Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - APR 24, 2013
Perfect pour out of 16 oz can - deep golden color with a thick, creamy head. Hops are at the forefront if the flavors, but aren't overpowering. There is a nice crispness the the mouth feel, which paired with the relatively low ABV makes this beer very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (2021) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Pint can from Keg Liquors; drink by date of 1/30/17. Aroma: Moderate citrus with melon and punch bowl-like fruit in near balance; a lesser caramel malt backing stays predictably subtle. Appearance: Somewhat hazy orange body with healthy carbonation holding up a sticky off-white head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Hops take a floral turn at the start, letting in more caramel than expected; melon/citrus like hop notes come up more towards the finish, which is lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Lots of good things about this APA; I just wish that the fruitiness of the nose couldve translated to the flavor more.

rougeau13 (2663) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Can. Very slightly hazy pale amber with a big frothy white head with a fair amount of webby lacing. Aroma of citrus peel, grain, and sweetbreads. Tastes grainy and slightly fruity and quite bitter. Medium bodied and very crisp.

kidmartinek (4768) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2016
A lot of thistle in aroma and flavor. Golden with a meringue head, in appearance that is. I want to love and hate this beer at the same time. The flavors are heavy in fruity esters. The esters are so thick you could love or hate it. Toys. Nostalgia.
