Misc.: Best by April 2, 2015

Poured an orange, honey, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of off-white, rocky head. Small amount of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Some spotting lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention all the way down. (Sight - 4.25)

Very nice nose. Got lots of hops - Citra, floral, Amarillo, Mosaic, Cascade and tropical. Also orange blossom, nectarine, Citra zest, caramel, light lemon grass and some peach. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted woody notes up front, followed by a bitter woody finish. Also Citra hops, floral hops, nickel, orange blossom, nectarine, orange rind, Amarillo hops, caramel, mango, peach and Citra zest. Wet Cascade hops late. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Bitter, abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)

This beer started out great with the nose and sight, and even the taste in the beginning, but didn’t hold strong the whole way. In fact, I dropped the taste and feel ratings as it went down. Still a good APA though. (Overall - 3.75)

Pours a beautiful golden orange with a two finger, thick, frothy head. The smell is predominately delicious, fruity, spicy yeast with a small amount of citrus hops and a faint malt presence. The flavor is quite delightful. It begins with a strong bitter statement, which is quite common among green flash beer, that gives way to a sweet, fruity malt, which is highlighted quite elegantly by the citrus and pine of the hops. The mouthfeel is quite creamy and ND actually very pleasant.
