spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Woodmans Madison Ar: Mildly hoppy aroma with a bit of citrus and a good deal of grassy hops. Caramel malt is also prevalent. Ap: Pours a light copper with orange streaks. 1/2" head dissipates quickly and leaves little lace. T: Quite a bit of caramel malt sweetness up front, more than is typical for this style. Mild hop bittering on the finish rounds this out nicely. P: Medium-thin body, medium carbonation. O: This gets a bonus point for sessionability. It would be easy to drink and enjoy 5-6 of these in an hour or two. Its simple, but there isnt anything "off" in here. Nice effort, and a nice change of pace from the IPAs that I love so much.

12 oz bottle. Amber pour, white head. Citrus, caramel malt, hops, and sweetness. Nothing too exciting, on the malty side.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Appearance: orange with a puffy pithy head. Laces up with nice chunks of puff hovering atop her glittering depths.
Nose: orangey, citrusy, grassy, and mangoey. Grass lurks in the back while honey mingles with the orange. Green underneath.
Palate: smooth with oranges and an underlying sweetness of orange honey. Medium body. A dry finish with grass and hop resins. A bit sticky with the mouthfeel she lingers long in the middle with a brief start and short finish. Orange rind adds to the dry bitter finish. Mango freshly sliced and juicy finds her way to the middle where she has good company in freshly sliced oranges. Simple and refreshing with just a dab of toast upon which her other flavors preside.
Final Thoughts: one of Tyranenas better offerings but not the greatest by far. A so-so pale ale she was assertive in her flavor profile which was unfortunately rather one-dimensional. Okay, but there are other pale ales out there I would rather quaff given the choice.

zizzybalubba (1851) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Woodmans in Madison, WI. Pale orange pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of light floral and grassy hops mixed with sweet caramel malts. Lightly bitter hopped flavor of grass and pine needles. Underwhelming yet drinkable and pleasant. Ive come to expect many of the great APAs to be darn close to IPAs but theres certainly nothing wrong with this being less than that. Overall this is a good American Pale Ale.

The Stone Tepee has an orange/yellow appearance. The aroma is quite hoppy, and the hops are somewhat floral. The taste is a good mixture of sweet and sour. Its kinda citrusy as well. The palate is great; substantial and full, but not harsh. Once again, another excellent beer from Tyrannena!

cbfobes (2883) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2010
On draft from brewery, pours clear golden with little or no whtie head to it, it does lace nice through out the glass, has slight aroma of hops but you really have to try, flavor is fairly bland but is still decent.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Pours pale gold and clear with very little snow white head. Apprears to have low carbonation. Nose if of citrus and some earthy hops. Light caramel aroma and no esters. no evidence of dry hops. Taste backs up the nose. Bitterness cleans off the palate in the end and does not linger. This is a wonderful example of an APA. Way underrated!

TheOldKid (46) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber gold with a minimal fizzy head that doesnt last long. Aroma seemed pine and malt, hardly any hop notes. Taste was medium to light bitter. Palate had a light body with light to medium slick texture. Light and fizzy. Finish was mildly bitter. Over all not great. Pretty weak even for an American Pale Ale. Like all beers, its at least worth trying once.

thedm (6103) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2010
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was musty and mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of wood and mild hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with an off-white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma is pretty sweet with a biscuit and grainy nose with underlying grassy hops. Flavor is more nicely balanced with a bit of floral and grassy hops combining nicely with the biscuits and sweet grains on the tongue.
