Picked this bottle up from the brewery gift shop in December. Marked as bottle no. 596 of 1041, and batch K10818.
A: This beer boasts a copper-tinted amber color, with great clarity. It is a little lacking in the head and lacing departments, but looks appetizing nonetheless.
S: Aroma is delicate, and well-rounded, with several resinous and citrus notes present.
T: Light and dry; toasty maltiness upfront, resinous bitter hops in the middle, and fruity citrus in the finish. Very light, yet full of flavor.
M: Light in body, and clean in texture. The carbonation is spot-on, providing just enough effervescence to round out the otherwise light body.
O: A very well made APA, and one that I am quite fortunate to have found. I doubt many other bottles will be available, but it should still be available at the pub on-tap. Definitely worth trying.

Appearance: a deep orange/reddish color. a small off white head that faded to just about nothing. pretty good clarity
Smell: fruity, lemons mostly, floral hops, sweet but not over sweet malts.
Taste: the floral hops come in very weakly, leaving room for strong michigan malts that are mostly sweet and intermingle nicely with light citrusy hops and fruity yeast
Mouthfeel: from the taste i'd expect something very refreshing. this came in quite bitter. other than that a good drinkable feel
Overall: this was a good and tasty beer. i expected a little bit more hops but i enjoyed the balance
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Bell's Eccentric Cafe. Served in a footed ale glass.
A: Pours a dark amber color with a thin, off-white head. it recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.
S: Fruity hops with some caramel malt sweetness. Light floral notes as well.
T: Same as the nose. Fruity berries with some deep caramel malt. Pretty sweet on the malt side with an increased residual hops bitterness.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Really dry finish.
O: Pretty ho-hum. Solid offering, but probably wouldn't revisit. Heavy on the malts and super dry. I'd like something a little cleaner and more refreshing if I was to drink a harvest ale.
Serving type: on-tap
