3.1/5  rDev -24%

A - Pours a rich gold with a thin head, which rapidly falls to a ring and island. Small bubbles of evenly spread carbonation float to the surface. Reasonable start.

S - Resinous/herbal hops, peach, pineapple, light breadiness, slightly floral.

T - Refined herbal hops initially. Drink becomes watery and tasteless in the middle before light fruitiness appears. Finishes with an bubblegum edge. Aftertaste is lightly hoppy with a bit of caramel.

M - Far too watery. The light carbonation is nice, but the beer need more body.

D - I would struggle to give this anything other than an average score. There is nothing particularly dislikeable about the beer, but by the same token, nothing to get excited about.

This beers pours a bright golden color with a white head.

Smell is a bit piney, citrusy, and earthy.

Taste is citrusy, earthy, malty, and a touch of pine. It makes for a very nice blend.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a crisp start, malty middle, and a lingering hoppy finish.

Overall this is a pretty good beer. Not one to turn down. Thanks to the non-brewing friend who brought it over to a home brew tasting.

Ontario (Canada)

3.95/5  rDev -3.2%

A - pours a slightly hazy golden colour, finger of head with solid retention and some nice sticky lacing.

S - Easthy, musty hops, cedar and pine, with caramel coming through on the finish. Reminiscent of an ESB.

T - Again, more reminiscent of an ESB than an APA, with the musty malty caramel coming through alongside the leafy, earthy, hops. Cardboard and paper mache comes to mind, but not in a bad way. Musty caramel and buttered bread linger on the finish.

M - A tad thin and could use a bit of a carbonation boost, finishes nice and wet.

O - A tasty APA with some unique characteristics making for a pleasureable experience. Easily drinkable and certainly sessionable. I could drink a 6-er of this stuff any day.

4.43/5  rDev +8.6%

from notes:

This extra pale ale drinks light like a refreshing pale ale, but it also has the hop profile of an IPA which will please even the biggest hop heads.

It pours a golden yellow.

Aroma is of citrus and grapefruit hops

The taste of citrus, grapefruit, tangerine, grass and pine hops play off a light malt base perfectly.

As drinkable as this beer is, at 6.5% you must be careful you don’t drink too much or you might wake up confused at 5am laying face down next to the pool.

Overall, this is one of my favorite summer seasonal beers.

Wisconsin

3.88/5  rDev -4.9%

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to Duvel tulip. Dated 9/28/11A, (bottled 5/28/11). Brought back from New Mexico.

A. Gold, somewhat cloudy, with white head that settles quickly and leaves just a trace of lacing.

S: Not much left here that I can detect, but some vanilla and citrus.

T: Sweet caramel, then somewhat sour, then growing bitterness that lingers.

M: Medium body and light/medium carbonation. Smooth, with some heat and neutral finish.

O: Considering that it's an old bottle, it is quite balanced and flavorful. Good complexity. Will look forward to tasting it again next summer.
