4.4/5 rDev +16.1%
Bottle 745 of 1041; Chalkboard in the Eccentric Cafe lists the draft version at 5.7% abv. I assume this is the same batch.
A - Pours a nice reddish orange with one and a half fingers of dense tan head. Head has great retention and coats the glass i lacing.
S - Aroma is quite floral, with some sweet citrus, herbal notes, some biscuit and toasted malts and a hint of spiciness.
T - Initial sweet citrus yields to a lightly resinous hop bitterness. Nice combination of malts and hops. Finish is dry hop bitterness, slightly herbal. Very well balanced and enjoyable taste.
M - Medium mouthfeel that is very creamy. A bit of dry lingering bitterness. Just enough carbonation, but definitely on the low side.
O - Very enjoyable, well-balanced APA. Would love to see this become an annual release in bottles.

2012 edition, received in May drunk in June. Expecting big hops, green and fresh. Rather subdued, pale ale describes it. Very good drinkability. Lighter coloured body, good retaned head. Hop aromas there and good, minty. Medium mouthfeel.Bottle from steven.

3.15/5 rDev -16.9%
On tap at Bell's on April 27, 2012. Served in a pint glass. Reviewed from notes. Pours a nice golden color that is quite clear with a good white head and a bit of foam. The nose carries a bit of spice and quite a bit of European hops. This smells like an IPA with all European hops. Spice, earth, and herbal qualities coming through. The flavor is very similar. Over-the-top spicy in some ways. I think this would have been better scaled back given the delicacy of some of the hops that seem to be involved. Body is light-medium with a dry bitterness through the finish. Not a huge fan, unfortunately.

4.19/5 rDev +10.6%
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
