22oz bomber into mason jar

Look is clear amber-orange with a nonexistent head. Smell is warm malt, apples, oranges, grassy hops. Taste is malty/bready and wooden, yet bitter with slightly spicy hops. Good balance between the hop and malt, meaning they play well off each other.

Not a fan of this one. Neither the malt nor the hops were especially tasty(too fruity/estery, and too medicinally bitter and earthy). Still, I can see how this may appeal to some.

Poured from a bomber into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a half finger of fluffy off white head that sticks around pretty well.

Smell: The smell is really mild with some malt and mild fruit notes. Not a whole lot going on here.

Taste: As with the smell, this is a really mild beer. Some malt and a mild hop bitterness. There are some citrus notes as well. The fruity notes seem a bit out of place.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with rather large bubbles and a slick finish.

Overall: This isn't a very good beer. It looked fine, but nothing else about it was very appealing. I wouldn't have another.

On tap at Old Chicago.

Appearance: Light orange and a bit hazy topped by white foam.

Smell: Hop is noticeable initially but fades to a bready malt scent.

Taste: More sweet malt than hop bite initially. Bitterness does show up, but I was expecting a bit more hop based on the labeling of 'Angry'. After the bready malt sweetness fades a bit there is trace of resinous hop that lingers on the finish.

Mouthfeel: medium. Carbonation is decent.

Drinkability: Mildly hopped and slightly more bitter than sweet, this one really doesn't distinguish itself, other than being 'organic'.

Big thanks goes out to MBrausen for sending me this one just so I could tick it! Shared this one with my doppelganger after dropping my Audi (RIP) off at the shop. Served from bottle into a Bell's stemmed tulip. Poured a deep red-orange with a minimal white head. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, citrus, floral, caramel, and subtle caramel hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, caramel, caramel hop, floral hops, and subtle citrus. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. The flavor profile on this one was quite well balanced and blended well together. However, it really left me wanting more from each sip. For the style, this was a pretty solid brew, but not life changing though. Worth trying if you have the opportunity without a doubt.

22oz. bottle into pint glass

A. Golden Orange with Amber hue, good head and retention along with some nice lacing. Looks clear but if you look closely has small particles of sediment dancing around within.

S. Bready malts, mild caramel and spicy fruits esters, more of a coriander like aroma with faint citrus

T. Picking up a initial bready and yeasty malt profile up front and a finish much like that of cardamom, can not detect any citrus in the hop profile, but has a mild pine undertone, more like the flavor of spruce tips though.

M. Dry, medium carbonation, alcohol comes through more then it should here.

O. This is an Ok APA. I prefer mine far hoppier. This kinda tastes more like a blend of an Oktoberfest, a heffe, and a IPA then an APA.

22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance-Amber in color with brilliant clarity. Moderate beige head had tiny bobbles and decent retention.

Aroma-Tropical fruits, orange, and light citrus/grapefruit hops with big caramel malt and some fruity esters (strawberries, cherries, and apples). Fair amount of yeast-derived character for an APA, but it smells pretty darn good.

Flavor-Tons of caramel malt, with a hint of breadiness as well. Flavors take quite some time to play out on the palate-first malt and berry fruitiness, but then piney, orangey citrusy hop flavors begin to grow on the palate. Slowly, hop bitterness builds, leaving an overall woody hop flavor with a touch of caramel. Tastes awesome.

Mouthfeel-Medium body with moderate carbonation. Leaves slight coating of numbing bitterness on the tongue.

An awesome interpretation of the APA from Flat Earth. While not as hoppy as most, and certainly with a lot more fruity esters, but its delicious nonetheless. Love it.
