4.05/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Found this on tap as part of the Rock Bottom brewpub’s sampler in the Minneapolis airport. I’d had it in bottles in New York, but it was far superior here. As the name indicates, this is a hazy amber-orange ale, topped by a fine head leaving nice lacing on the 3 oz. sample glass. A floral hop bouquet with a sweet malty foundation. Some apple coming through. Tastes great – all of the hops are very flavorful without being too strong. Floral & herbal with a slight bitter/earthy finish. Malt and yeast flavors present, but this ale belongs to the hops. Medium body goes down easy – a session for summer, winter, whenever. Recommended on tap.

4.43/5  rDev +20.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Solid creamy three finger head on an amber / red relatively clean body, small chunks of sedement visible.

S - Floral, freshly-cut-grassy hops hit you in the face here, very very fresh, this screams dry-hopped.

M - Light, watery, understaded carbonation, crisp aftertaste.

T - Tastes a lot like it smells; fresh, floral hops dancing on this Pale Ale. Very enjoyable.

D - Keep this one coming - a great session beer at less than 5% ABV and an incredibly fresh, crisp taste makes this a perfect summer afternoon brew and its relatively complex hoppy character gives it enough of a wallop to stand on its own regardless of thirst-quenching abilities.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass. There is a large thick creamy head the stays with this brew. The aroma is a nice mix of floraland earhty hops. The smells really setup and highlight this beer. The taste is that same good fruit hop smell along with a solid malt backbone. The slick hop resin oils coat the mouth and don't leave, bringing down the mouthfeel and drinkability for me. A create brew for a hot summer day or a nice sunny spring day.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

hazy (if they say so) but clear of sediment pale ale with a decent head of tan foam. almost amber in color.

Smell is floral, barely bitter. something seems off but i can't put a finger on it.

That's okay because the taste is nice. very smooth, light hoppy and malty finish. Crystal hops aren't the most floral if I remember correctly, and the resulting brew isnt' as floral as I expected. very pleasent but not at all earth shattering. solidly good.

4.28/5  rDev +16.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: poured a deep clear amber color with a big, rocky, off-white head of 2 inches , big bands of lacing left on my pint.

Smell: Big raw hoppy nose, citrusy, lots of grapefruit and pineapple and slight pine, you can tell its dry hopped.

Taste: Nice fresh hops that are , leafy/ green, slightly citric and floral, lots of hop flavor throughout yet not overpowering nor very bitter, alot more balnced than the name led me to think, with a nice maltiness and some yeasty qualities, especially in the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium body, kinda creamy

Drinkability: A very quaffable Pale Ale, Not hoppy in a bitter or tongue smackin way , but lots of good hop flavors and balance, great beer to drink all night long.

3.28/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Leaves an average head that disappears quickly. Aroma is more pine than fruity. The aroma is strong and IMHO is overpowering and distracting. Sufficiently carbonated that lasted to the last drop.

I prefer hoppy ales but this one just doesn't do anything for me. Initial taste is pleasing but there is a lingering aftertaste and dry mouth feel that I find a bit unpleasant. This is definately a less is more beer. One bottle is enough to satisfy even the most die hard hop heads.

3/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - hazy dark orange/borwnish with a full finger of tan head held aloft by steady random carbonation

S - the traditional grapefruit and piney aroma of an IPA, what? this isnt an IPA, i dunno bout that. there is also a nodescript sweetness haunting the background, like molasses or brown sugar, tempting

T - a nice bitter hop profile dominates the flavor, however it is a truly cloying flavor, i keep expecting the sweet boot to drop, and it doesnt, and the bitterness is kind of dulled, a nice sweetness would really bring it out, but it is tasty

M&D - smooth for so many IBU's, easy down, just needs bit more flavored balance, decent body, a nice and decent beer

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle a hazy golden-brown. Creamy head which quickly faded but left some decent lacing.

Slight grapefruit from the hops and a malt presence.

A bit of grapefruit with the hops but that paled to a combination of bitter and tangy which I found to be too distracting.

Thinner mouthfeel with light carbonation.

This is a decent Dry-hopped ale but nothing too special.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass, pours a rustic orange color with a bit of a head that doesn't stay to long and leaves a bit of lace, not much though. Smell is amazing you can litterly smell the taste of this fine brew, candy smell with citrus hops, this is one fine smellling beverage. Taste is also pretty good, for the big hop smell it has a slight taste of bitterness somewhat malty with a citrus flair kind of reminds me of a weaker ipa. Overall this is pretty good and my first time with a Boulder beer, I believe we recently got them down here in Florida, I will be visiting this one more often.

on tap at the horse-brass.

came to the table a cloudy (unfiltered?) orange/copper with a pillowy, off-white, sticky head that lasts and lasts. nose was nice and fruity - citrics and apples - with herbal and piney components as well. taste is quite creamy, sweet, slightly yeasty, and noticably dry-hopped. a bit dry in the mouth and has a sharp bite of a finish, but not unenjoyable. overall, quite an enjoyable little beer!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Hazed and Infused pours a hazy, oranger-copper with a fizzy head that leaves some runny lace.
Interesting aroma. I'm surprised by a sweet pear scent that seems to dominate. Just a touch of floral from the hops. I don't detect as much hops as I expected...maybe not a fresh bottle?
Bitter citric peel taste. The tanginess could be good, but the sweetness that I smell isn't there to balance. Once again I'm thinking this might not be a fresh bottle...or maybe it's just not that great of an APA.
Average drinkability. Overall, I just wasn't impressed, but it's decent enough that I would revisit and see if it's any better. A different time and place may improve my opinion.

3.53/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours a nice dark, amber color with a white sudsy head. Aroma is very hoppy, with notes of citrus, pine, grass, and and earthy quality.

The flavor is also very hoppy, but at the same time a bit watery. It doesn't try to be an IPA, but it doesn't have the balance of a good pale ale either. There's a bit of a bread quality to the aftertaste, along with a dry finish. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and watery, but not too bad.

Overall this is a decent APA, but nothing outstanding. Give it a go if you're a hophead looking for something on the lighter side.

Served On Tap Into A 14.9oz Pint Glass

Appearance: Comes to me a hazy, translucent, orange/brown/gold. White head is plentiful and full of tiny bubbles. They linger around for awhile, throughout the entire experience.

Smell: Pine is huge in the aroma department. Lemon, daisy, pepper and hops. Very dense aromas.

Taste: Very big on the pine here too. Thick and sugary and beaming with flavor. Bittering hops up front and lemon peel to follow. Honey suckle and malt finish. Complex.

Mouthfeel: Great marks here. I thought this beer to be a DIPA but was fooled. Thick and viscous for a beer of this style. Great body and creamy mouthfeel.

Drinkability: This is a great APA that could outshine many DIPAs. It has all of the characteristics of a bigger beer without the alcohol presence. It gets down to business with full flavor. My only qualm is that I prefer grapefruit flavors over pine. I would certainly have this whenever available.

Poured a slightly hazy light amber color with a white head that faded down to a ring. Nose was heavy on the citric hops and some mild dough. Nice and refreshing piney hops, citrus and peppery. Crisp and smooth mouthfeel, hit the spot perfectly at happy hour on a friday, this is good beer!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear copper color into pint glass with one finger head that disappates quickly. Little to no lacing. Aroma is pine hops with some carmel malts and citrus hops. Taste is primarily pine hops with enough malt backbone to keep the bitters down. Finish is not as dry as I would expect with this amount of hops. Mouthfeel is relatively light which is nice for an APA. Good APA but nothing spectacular.

A - Orange hazy opaque color. Head is brownish white, rocky and sits at a thick quarter inch. Lacing is one of the strongest I've seen. Good looking brew.

S - Tangy hop aroma nicely balanced with a spicy malt. Lemony and a bit earthy.

T - Mild piney hops matched with a spicy malt as mentioned above. Aftertaste is a salivating, sweet, slightly spicy, oily hop sensation. Yum.

M - More on the thin side with a noticeable oilyness. Carbonation slightly elevated.

D - I really like this beer and I think it's slightly underrated, should more towards an 89. Try it and you'll want to drink a lot of it!

Offered in a bottle at an area watering hole. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a dirty brown/amber color and is hazy. A small bubbly white head caps the beer, but is not resilient. The head leaves some spotty lacing on the glass.

The smell is fruity. Sour pineapple and citrus aromas.

The taste is very hoppy, with tangy and bitter citrus flavors. A little cereal flavor comes through.

Mouth feel is zesty and very dry. Seems to be a lot of carbonation, but it could be a sting from the hops.

This beer is very drinkable, especially for hop head. It is light and dry with a low ABV. Very sessionable. I'd love to buy it in a grocery store.

pours a orange amber color with a large beige head that settles fairly quickly to just cover the beer but with some nice lacing. nice fruity citrus aromas with the piney hops coming through. apples, oranges and orange rind with some toasted malt and big hop flaver. nicely balanced with a light mouthfeel and good carbonation. good session beer i'll be looking for it again.

Pint purchased on-tap at Far West Billiards in Spokane for $4. First time I had seen this beer in my area.

Poured a copper color, with a medium sized off-white head that hung around for a few minutes. Moderate amount of lacing.

Seeing as how the tap handle trumpted that this beer was dry-hopped, I expected hops to be an integral part of the nose and I was not disappointed. Scent was first and foremost of piney hops. There was also a framework of bready maltiness but it was definitely taking a backseat to the hops.

Taste was pretty much like the smell. This is a pale ale with a dominant hop flavor. While not to the leve of an IPA, the hops are definitely in charge here.

Mouthfeel was about right for a medium bodied pale ale. No disappointments or innovations here.

A decent session beer at under 5% abv, and a pleasingly hoppy one as well. Not a bad beer to session while playing a game of pool, as virtually everyone else was doing in Far West when I was there.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

a - burnt orange color, two-finger white head, moderate retention and good lacing, fairly clear

s - subdued smell, biscuity maltiness, weak earthy hop aroma

t - much like the smell, earthy hop flavor with a backbone of biscuity malt, slight nuttiness on the finish

m - light-to-medium bodied, lots of carbonation, moderately dry finish

d - fairly drinkable, easy drinking and low abv

Not an overly impressive APA, but not terrible. I'd like to have a bit more pronounced hop flavor and the biscuity/yeasty maltiness get a bit tiring.

wow I was really let down by this beer

it poured a dark copper with a thick sudsy head...lots of lacing

huge hop smell, citrus, pine, marijuana...a nice bready malt scent rounds it out

the hop definition was extremely pour...not any keystone tastes just pretty bitter on the whole with a grape skin appley malt finish

very dry in some ways reminiscent of a white wine

I was really unimpressed with you and doubt I will be going for a round two...sucks since I have another in the fridge :(

This beer poured a cloudy golden/copper color with a thick head. The smell is bold of hops!! Wow, this beer is very hoppy with enough malt to counteract the bitterness. It ends up being quite flavorful and works well. The mouthfeel is full. This is a delightful ale – I’d recommend it if you are in the mood for a big hopped beer.
