    Pour is bright copper with a white, one finger head. Aroma is citrus and floral. Taste is a little bitter and hoppy, with some malt and floral hints toward the finish. Body is medium overall. Overall it’s a great example of the APA style.

    Aroma is strong and malty with a spicy, salty and slightly hoppy undertone. It pours a nice clear golden amber with a thick creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Flavor is malty and crisp, with fruity and hoppy tones and just a hint of herbs. Texture is silky smooth yet leaves a nice tingle behind.

    Copper yellow with white foam head lacing to glass. Aroma is nice bitter hops with citrus. Taste is perfect hoppy bitterness with very little sweet tones. Aftertaste is long lasting bitter. (Cleveland 201210)

    Pours a caramel color. Smell is mild, some hops. Taste is hops, some bitterness, not a lot going on. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

    Having another one because the first one didn't touch the sides.Good thirst quencher after a tough night shift.Not a bad pale ale but it's just a fill in before something good.

    nice amber pour with a nice head with a very nice citrusy aroma. This beer is slightly better on draft. has a great clean finish. Good on hot summer Ohio days.

    Amber pour with a thin white head. Minimal amount of lace. Hop aftertaste with some bread in the mix. I'm not a huge fan of APA but I think I'll need to revisit this one.

    Pour was clear light golden pour with frothy head and pretty good lacing. Aroma and flavor was sweet and grainy, almost a pilsner like malt with a mild bitter finish. I’d say this is a pretty good example of the style, full of flavor. Rich and thick, yet drinkable. Nicely done.

    Many thanks, Lou - enjoyed it. Deep copper-orange - more copper than orange - color with a light haze. Small to non-existant head but fair lacing for a bit. Rich mouthfeel and a complex, balanced flavor with all the requisite pale ale qualities in a near-perfect balance for my taste.

    Pours clear amber with a white head. Aroma is floral. Mouthfeel is hoppy. Flavor is hoppy, piney, with a smidge of sticky sweet. All around a nice drinker.
