3.58/5 rDev -0.3%
On tap at Mad Fox. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a caramel-amber color with a two-finger off-white head and some sticky lacing on the way down. Thin cap throughout. The nose brings forward a bit of light bready malt plus some moderate caramel and a bit of toast. Hops are present -- some citrus and pine, but nothing overwhelming. Lots of balance with the malt. Taste balances malt and hops without any really taking over. A bit too much malt for my tastes. Nice bitterness in the finish, which complements the chewy body of the beer. Pretty good brew, but I'll stick with Orange Whip.

From 08/13/11 notes. Had on tap at Mad Fox. Served in a pint glass.
a - Pours a hazy orange-yellow color with two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of pepper, yeast, light mint, and some citrus hops. Good, but seemed a bit more saison like to me than an APA.
t - Tastes of citrus hops, some pine hops, and light spices and pepper. More hoppy than the nose and as much like a saison, though some pepper is still there.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.
o - Overall a pretty good beer. I ordered the saison right after this to make sure he didn't accidentally give me that, as the nose wasn't too hoppy, but this was the APA. Not a bad beer and worth checking out.
