A: Very nice deep cloudy brown/mahogany coloring with 2 fingers of head that dissipates to a thin veil of lace that clings all the way down.

S: Very aromatic. Some dark fruits as well as a nice wheat and malt mix with a hint of doughy yeast. Very nice.

T: Some of those dark fruits coming thru from the get go lead way to the nice floral hoppyness. Little bit of spice mixed in with the bitterness of the hops with a biscuit like after taste that lingers in the mouth. All around very enjoyable.

M: Medium carbonation works well with the flavors making for a medium bodied brew with a thick creamy after taste that lingers around.

O: Pretty impressed with this all around. Nice balance between the dark fruits, malt and hop bitterness and ending on a nice doughy note. Would def try again.

This was bottle poured into a white wine glass.

Appearance; Gorgeous deep, robust amber that obscures the glass, strong finger head with large bubbles, great "cloudy" effect when held to the light

Smell; Tangy floral notes with a grassy undertone, almost lemon like. Second smell reveals bready characteristics, almost like white bread

Taste; Beautiful, bold hop presence, mild malty backing. Tangerine, lemon, presence of sweet malt, pie crust, bread lingering in the back

Mouthfeel; "Medium", heavier on the tongue than anywhere else in the mouth, rich feeling

Overall; A delightful brew. It's well balanced and fresh tasting while still coming on strong with the hopiness. I could take a bomber of this anywhere.

A hazy orangey-copper with a huge cream colored head that I had to let sit for a minute or two before I could even try to explore the beer. Nice lacing. I could smell a nice does of orange rind as I awaited the foam to die down. Once I got to smell the beer up close the citric aroma remained strong, this time both the fruit as well as the rind, and also showing itself was a nice doughiness from the malt. A very nice and inviting aroma. A fruit forward flavor, orange and lemon, with a bready malt base (that gains in strength as it warms) to this. This beer isn't very sweet, its more refreshing with a touch of bitterness that kicks in towards the second half and carries into the aftertaste. Not much life to the flavor though. A crisp medium body to this with a dry finish. Overall, nothing wrong with this beer but I found it to be quite boring.

A: Burnt orange is the right color for this, on the burnt side. Not a see through beer. It's a lovely color that reminds you of the leaves changing in the fall. Nice cream colored head. Poured a good 1" foam head into a Guinness Draught stout glass.

S: Floral hops, medium smell. Not strong or overwhleming.

T: Slight sweet and smooth balanced hop taste. There is a tinge of spice on the back half of the taste. Not much. You might not notice it if you take two sips in a row quickly. The taste does not linger long and makes you want to drink another, so pause yourself to truly notice the spice.

M: This is a light mouthfeel for a APA with a noticeable tingling of carbonation on the tongue.

O: I would buy this in spring and fall to share with friends, again and again. The spice notes would go great with grilled chicken or sausage.

Thank-you, Oregon! An excellent APA...

Pours a dark, hazy amber - almost burnt orange - with a decent copper coloured head. Mouthfeel is crisp and pleasant. Aroma of caramelized malts and tropical fruits leads into a beautifully well balanced taste. Citrus fruit, mango and pineapple - everything I could ever hope for in "west cost" hop flavour is included. And the bitter finish lingers for an impressively long time.

Definitely a beer I'll buy again and a brewery I'll continue to support whenever I get a chance...

Poured into a tulip from a bomber.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden amber with a two finger ecru colored fluffy sticky head with plenty of pretty lace down the glass.

Smell: Very malty sweet with a nice hoppy grass back note. Fruity hop bitter smell. Nice.

Taste: Just about the same as the smell. Sweet malts mixed with a fresh hop bitter finish. Not to spicy but you can pick up pepper notes on the front of your tongue. Long lasting dry finish.

Mouth: Smooth and dry. Medium carb. Nice oily feel that stays long after the sip.

Overall: A very nice APA. Almost walked by this one too. Very glade I didn't. Good drinkable beer. Do yourself a favor and give this one a try. This one would pair great with some spicy chinese food.
