I picked this up as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, making it $1.67 for a single 12oz brown boittle. It has a bottled on date of 1/26/12 on it, so this bottle is about 10 months old now.

The beer poured a slightly hazed pale gold color with a half finger of white head on top that dissipated in less than 30 seconds and left only a few small spots of lace. Not that attractive to look at.

Pine, citrus, and tropical fruit smell with subtle bready malt underneath.

This mostly has a citrusy hop flavor with a bit of pine hop bitterness. giving it a 29 IBU rating. What malt there is is on the dry crackery side rather than sweet.

Light body with higher than average carbonation.

It has decent flavor, and with the low 4.0% abv you can have a few of these without feeling much, but they are not anyhing that I would describe as WYLD or exceptional.

Pours deep golden with gushingly large white head. Nose is very light with some bready-biscuity notes. On the palate there is a cereal-grain like sweetness with some balancing citrus, lively carbonation, and a touch of white pepper on the finish. More enjoyable when right out of the fridge than once warmed a few mins.

A - Pours a golden copper with a small head

S - Bready malt, grapefruit citrus, stone fruit.

T - Strts off with a nice citrus flavor and then ends with a bready maltyness

M - Light bodied and ok carbonation

D- Overall this was an ok APA. Nice a clean but not much else going on.

Pours a hazy golden color with light foamy head and mildly sticky lacing. Enjoyable hoppy flavor and refreshing too. Organic ingredients and made with renewable power, so can be considered a "green" beer.

This poured out as a lightly hazy golden color wit ha fizzy white head on top. The smell of the beer was a little hoppy but also had some earthy malt in there too. The taste of the beer was alright, nothing too crazy really, it was bitter mostly from start to finish. The mouthfeel was moderately carbonated and light bodied. Overall this brew wasn't too bad, just not something I'd seek out in the future.

Poured this brew into a hefe glass.

The brew pours a nice deep orange, nice chunky head that settles nicely into a island of a head. Some nice sticky lacing.

The brew smells of hops, floral smells.

The brew tastes of hops - not as much as I would like. Too light on the hop taste - no real bite. I expected more per the smell. Can taste the floral backdrop in the tastes.

The brew is drinkable, a little light for me in the hops department; almost like a hop brew for novice hop drinkers. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

medium copper color, foamy white head. not the boldly hopped beer that is advertised. however, a decent pale ale - mild hop and malt flavors, easy to drink

12oz. can served in a small schooner. Pours a dull burnt orange with a hazy clarity. Head is loose, off-white and quickly dissipates towards the shoulders, leaving a residual soapy slick. Some spots of lacing revealed during the tasting. Nose expresses light biscuit malts and a trace of fruity esters. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of a noble hops presence at the finish. There's also a little citric acid interspersed throughout the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light in body with a crisp carbonation and a hint of acidity. Overall an easy drinking session beer, but not much flavor. That said, I'd be interested to see this beer on-cask.

A - Golden brown with two finger thick head. Dissipates to a nice lacing that sticks to the sides of the glass.

S - Citrus and spice from the hops, almost a small Cinnamon scent. Light caramel from the malt.

T - Citrus fallowed by a little bit of caramel. Strange aftertaste though, almost like it's trying to be bitter for the hops, but it doesn't quite get there.

M - Light body, good carbonation, goes pretty well with the flavor.

O - Pretty nice orange flavor, though they need to decide what they are trying to achieve with the hops. But hey, it's organic and not a bad beer if that's what you are looking for.

Poured out a hazy amber, and pretty lively at that. Big thick white head sticks to the glass like glue. The aroma is mild, with light bread notes and a little bit of fruity funkiness. The taste is a little too mild, with nothing really distinctive. It borders on bland. The feel of the beer is a little too close to water for me. I feel like there needed to be more malt in the malt bill or maybe brewed longer or something. It's just lacking.

UPDATE: I looked at the bottle at the best by date was November 2013. That might be why. If I can find a newer brew, I'll re-review.

Hazy gold liquid from a can, small half finger white head is full of tight bubbles. The retention of the head isn't really where it should be yet manages a study dusting of lacing on the glass.

A real pungent aroma lifting from the glass "Hop Ranch Junior" comes to mind, gnarly pine, catty herbs and onion over a yellow citrus. Really opens up as the beer warms.

Grainy and slight, a watered down cereal grains with a mild grassy and lemon zest hop profile that lacks any kick or real bitterness. Grainy finish, cracker-like and prickly.

Prickly carbonation with a sessionable body. Alcohol is a non factor and has some perceived drying despite the even bitterness.

Watered down flavor and really grainy, the hop profile is gnarly and pungent, really not my type of deal but there are many a hop head that would roll around in that aroma. Easy enough to drink and the cans are a plus, otherwise pass over this one.
