4.05/5 rDev +10.1%
Pours amber with a creamy head.
Nose shows orange marmalade, bready malt, caramel, floral and spicy hops.
Very piny flavours with some peppery woody notes too, almost cedar-like. Lots of clean sweet malt. Some booze but reasonable well-integrated.
Great moderately-high carbonation.

3.9/5 rDev +6%
Appearance- Pouts a copper amber with a finger of foamy white head.
Smell- piney hops, bready malts, caramel, hint of citrus
Taste- Starts with moderate bitterness from the spicy piney hops then goes to the bready malts and the citrus.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall- An APA that stays true to the style. I like the spicy hop notes in the beer. A winner for me.

3.4/5 rDev -7.6%
Aroma: Moderate hop aromas up front. Fresh musk melon and light orange zest with a medium caramel malt sweetness. No esters- clean fermentation profile.
Appearance: Hazy amber pour with a low off-white head. Head retains well in the glass and leaves sticky lacing behind.
Flavor: Firm earthy bitterness up front. Bready and caramel-like malt base. Hop flavor is moderate with more melon and orange rind notes. Balance is firmly bitter. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is lingering and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. No astringency, heat, or creaminess.
Overall impression: A punchy strong pale ale. Would prefer more hop aroma and less bready malt flavors but plenty of hops to keep me interested. Worth a try.
