Pretty floral in the nose with a light fruity sweetness to it. Not bad, pretty typical for an APA.

Taste has a floral quality to it straight away with a small fruit sweetness and a note of grain in there as well. Finish has a somewhat assertive, medicinal bitterness to it to close it out dryly...I also percept a slight sourness there. Not sure about that.

The beer has all the notes of a standard APA but all in all I didn't enjoy it as much as most APA's. It's actually kind of hard to pinpoint...though the finish isn't exactly what I wanted.

I had high expectations for this one, and I was let down only a little.

A: Beautiful dark amber/red with a nice foamy yellow-tinged head, with lacing pretty much the whole way down.
S: Rich
T: Quite hoppy, even for a pale ale, but full and rich with the fruit flavor behind it. Complex.
M: Really kind of weird by the end. Felt very foamy and uncomfortable.
O: Delicious, but not so great for the last few sips.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy medium brown with a 2 finger tan head. Great lacing.

Smells very floral. Some light biscuit in there.

The taste is very floral with some yeastyness. Moderate bitterness throughout lingering through the finish. A little bit of malt is detectable.

Just an ok beer that I don't really care about having again.

Got this one in a mix six pack.

A- Nice copper/ amber color, 1 and a half finger head, nice retention for a while.
S- Nice, if it were potpourri, fruits, spice, cinnamon.
T- Like potpourri with malts.
M- Overly fizzy to a tongue numbing degree.

Avoid at all cost. I took two sips and poured it out.

From a six pack poured into a tulip style glass.
A- amber/red, slightly cloudy
S- spicy with maybe a cinnomin hint. Some kind of spice us present
T- malty, like an ocktoberfest or Irish red
M- somewhat thick, but overall smooth
O- worth buying again. I love malty/ ocktoberfest beer, this will now join my usual rotation
