I had this at Buffalo Wild Wings on 6/1/15. I was told this was an amber. It smelled, looked, and tasted like one. I don't think this is an APA at all.

It was tasty. Caramel and roasted malts, slight citrus and spice, with a sharp pinch of hop. It went down easy. Especially good with boneless wings.

I'd have it on tap again.

24 oz from BWW. Caramel and gold with slight carbonation. Sweet hoppy and citrus smell. Taste is a little too pale for me but I don't like Ales that much so if you do this is a quality beer.

This is a throw down beer....you can drink plenty, but tastes mass produced.

Had at Buffalo Wild Wings. I agree with the other reviews; the flavor and smell doesn't match the color but isn't unpleasant to drink. Ever so slightly on the hoppy side.

Excellent look, the feel and nose were rather shallow for the color. Taste was good. Very straight forward APA. No negatives just doesn't have the depth of flavor that others have.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Slightly hazy deep amber with a smallish head, Big caramel maltiness with faint earthy citrus hop. Its a solid meh!
