Euphoria presents a light clear yellow tan with very strong head followed with excellent. On the nose is a complex mixture of sweet barely and floral hops with a touch of citrus and earthy tones. On the tongue the beer matches it's smell with a beautiful complex sweet floral hoppy main line with a touch of fruit and an excellent bitter finish. In the mouth this beer is strong, smooth and silky. Overall Euphoria is an excellent beer worthy of it's name.

Amber-tan with pitted taupe head - darker than expected.
Oily orange rind and floral nose.
Solid toffee backbone then sweet tangerine rind and pine shaving hops.
Citronella end and orangey linger.
Short of medium, round, oily.

OK, so this is Goldings, which is not a big, bold, bright American hop. But it's used in such quantities here that you get plenty of greasy orange rindy goodness. The body's a bit sweet, but it is a winter seasonal, so it gets away with that, too. And this is 5 months *past* its expiration date, so lord knows how much more citrus peel (and EKG spice, which is missing) there'd be if it were fresh.

Not a conventional APA, but still a very good, drinkable one.
