Tap at kaiser tiger in Chicago. Copper with medium white head and good lacing. Powerful hop nose. Taste is a maltier profile, while still being hop forward. Rich, caramel plus bitterness. A full flavored beer with a big body.

12floz bottle, BOD: 12.28.2017, $2.25 single, nonic glass. A classic APA, still excellent since the last time I got to try it. Copper in color with some fine sediment in suspense and frothy off-white head. Caramel, pine, and citrus aroma - oh the joy of hops commonly used in American craft beer of yesteryear. The medium bodied palate presents a piney-herb hop presence, which is amply supported toasted caramel maltiness. The malts may not be the focal point, but they are there. No apparent dextrose added that I find to be abhorrent part of the brewing of some beers. A beer good to have one, two, or for light session purposes. A can't go wrong beer choice for anytime.

Aggiebob (1558) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 4, 2018
UPDATED: APR 4, 2018 Draft. It poured a dark gold with a big frothy off-white head. It has a malty caramel aroma with dank tangerine citrus hoppiness. The taste is strongly bitter.

scotchzombie (634) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2017
Pours reddish orange gold with a small but long lasting white head. Aroma is sweet orange citrus hops. Taste follows with a rich grain malt backbone. Notable sweetness and citrus hops that leave a medium bitterness. Quite excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A cool label, though I don't think the beer itself was as impressive to me.

oberschlesier (316) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - NOV 21, 2017
Zapach biszkoptowo-karmelowy, herbaciany, lekko przyprawowy, nawet nieco kwiatowy, przyjemny i zbalansowany, ale nie jest to intensywna chmielowa bomba, która powala soczystością i intensywnością. Jest grzecznie. Smak lekko karmelowy i kwiatowy, goryczka w posmaku, przez chwilę zalega, średnia do wysokiej jak na APA. Piwo ma kolor podchodzący pod bladą czerwień, nie jest zbyt mętne. Piana ładna, lacing, utrzymuje się. Wysycenie w sam raz. za niskie nie jest. Solidny klasyk, ale bez fajerwerków.

randy1969 (169) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Aromas of caramel, bready malt and floral hops. An amber color in a slightly hazy liquid. with an off-white head. The taste is glorious: a solid base of caramel malt and some subtle sweet fruit. Feels medium bodied, creamy texture with moderate, pleasant carbonation. Overall a real nice balanced pale ale.
