I REALLY liked this beer.

Nice Amber color...not enough head. What little there was, had a nice lacing.

Smelled like a BEER. Not fruity...a real beer.

Taste was wonderful. Refreshing, but NOT light. A little hoppy, which is good, but no "caramels" (which is also good).

Clean, bright mouthfeel.

I REALLY LIKE THIS BEER. Good job. I will buy more!

Informative label says hopping is done with Warrior, Centennial and Cascade, and dry hopping uses Simcoe, Centennial, and Cascade. That's a promising line-up! No dating info on the bottle, and no indication of the ABV.

The color was deep bronze, dark reddish tint. This brew poured with a big, long-lasting head, fragrant with pine and floral hoppiness. The taste was substantial malt of a traditional, unobtrusive sort, the canvas for a hoppy painting with hops strewn wet and dry to create a complex, fully textured portrait of the ingredients. It started with a good hoppy blast and finished with briefly sour and grainy notes, but in the end solidly, delicously, persistently bitter.

For mouthfeel, there was great texture from the foam, hop oiliness, and chewey ale. It seemed like low alcohol and heavy malting. These combined to make nice carbo-hydrated satisfaction. Carbonation and balance were excellent.

Overall, I thought this brew was highly drinkable. Recommended.

Comes out of the tap an opaque dark honey-golden with a thick, fine-bubbled, pale wheat head. Aroma is VERY hoppy, more woody than evergreen, with fruity and malty hints. Flavor is mainly hoppy, quite bitter and woody, with malty and fruity notes and a whisper of honey. Firm, ragged texture has plenty of life and fizz. If you like IPAs, this one is for you. Dry-hopped beers rock!

4.33/5  rDev +19.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a medium tannish brown with a decent white head that has excellent lacing.

Smell: Sweet malt, caramel, floral hops.

Taste: Awesome blend of piney/floral hops. There's a sweet caramel malt flavor.

Mouthfeel: light to medium body with good carbonation.

This is an excellent and hoppy beer. This will cure what ails ya when you're cravin' the hop. This is one of the few really flavorful beers that makes a good session beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Hazy copper/ bronze brew with a small but good lookin' eggshell head and some nice lace made of tiny little bubbles.

S - Starfruit (yes there really is such a thing.... I worked in the produce department at our local grocery store in high school), hard-shell gumball like you get from the 25 cent glass-globe machine at the mall, and a hint of a lemon-grass wheat note. The hops show up as a subdued floral, as opposed to citrusy or piney, note. Beers always get a high "smell" score from me when they remind me of odd-ball things I haven't thought about in years.

T - More hop presence than in the nose. Biscuity malts behind a grace note of peppery and saltine cracker wheat. Flowery hops. Well balanced and thoroughly drinkable.

M - Medium bodied, but solidly built. Super creamy at first but finishing quite dry, almost sandy.

This is a well rounded and solidly brewed beer. Hoppy, but not over-done. I like the hint of wheat without a big time wheat presence that might take away from the hops. Actually, now that I'm looking at the bottle I'm surprised that the hop notes came off as floral to my palate. Centennial, cascade, warrior, and simcoe are listed on the front label. Aren't those usually citrus/pine/ American Northwest hops? Good beer whatever is in it!

4.28/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep amber color with a 1/2 inch head that quickly dissipates into a light film of foam on the top and rim. Nice delicate lacing clings to the sides of the glass.

Smell is malty, mostly, which is surprising for a dry-hopped APA.

Taste is a nice mix of malt and hops, which creates a rich flavor and mouthfeel. The hops and strong carbonation provide a nice dry finish. Wavers between an APA and IPA, IMO.

Good session beer, especially for fans of hops.
