The beer pours a nice amber color with a thick frothy offwhite head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a dry, pale and crystal malt scent along with a light hop aroma. The taste is decent also. It has a dry, "amber" ale taste with a moderate bitterness. It's basically a copper colored APA. The mouthfeel is average. It is a medium bodied beer with too much carbonation. This beer really isn't much to get excited about. It's overly carbonated and isn't all that interesting.

Pours a clear golden amber color with a minimal white head. Aroma is hops, pine hops, and citrus hops.

The taste is more of the same. hops, hops, hops. A bit watery too, to be honest. Like many other APAs out there, this one just goes a bit too hop crazy and never finds the right balance. The flavors are light and crisp, so it's not a bad beer for a picnic or something, but it's a bit too unbalanced for my liking.

A nice clear copper colored brew, this one has a thin off-white head. Good appearance. The aroma is clean,a lightly malty, and with a hint of undetermined fruit. Decent hop presence. Fresh and clean taste. Firmly bitter. This is a tasty, but not exceptional outdoor brew (enjoyed on my deck on Memorial Day).
