look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Aromas of caramel, biscuit, lemon, lime, herbs, and mandarin orange are present on the nose, but are very muted.

T: Indistinct flavors of lemon, lime, herbs, and mandarin orange take a little time to express themselves, but are muted even further by the emergence of a jumble of caramel, cream, biscuit, and mineral notes at mid-palate. The finish is very short with fleeting notes of minerals, caramel, and orange.

M: Medium in body and dryish. Carbonation is very crisp and intense, but the ale goes down well enough. I have a feeling that if the mouthfeel were a bit better balanced and the carbonation tamed a bit, this ale's flavors would be easier to discern.

O: I really do not know what happened here. Looking at some of the other reviews, I seriously wonder if I have been drinking the same beer. This is a fairly simple, straight-forward ale, but unfortunately it is not simple in an appealing way. There just isn't enough going on in this ale to sustain my interest.

A- Hazy golden amber modest head, ample lacing.

S- Sweet malts, bready, a little yeast in there too. Hop bitterness.

T- Sweet malts vs. Bitter hops 12 rounds no holds barred.

M- Wet and easy. Quality.

O- Not bad at all. Well balanced, nice hop additions. Has an IPA feel without being rude.

A - Clear gold with just about a thin layer of white fizzy head, no lacing.
S - Sweet malt, a little lime zest, thats about it.
T - Sugar water with some light hop flavor.
M - Thin, wattery, and sweet.
O - This is just lame, good to session on a hot day I guess, but pass on to other, much much better APA's in the similar price range.
