On tap at the brewpub in Warren.

A: Murky gold with a smalle head. Very hazy.

S: Light citrus and not much else. Quite restrained for an APA.

T: Extremely sweet and syrupy. The hop (flavor--grapfruit) emerges only at the back of the tongue. Hop bitterness seems to be absent throughout.

M: The overall effect is too sweet. This needs a stronger hop backbne. No length to speak of.

D: Sweet, light, mindless. Not something I'd pick up again.

Burnt yellow. Frosty, translucent sheet of bubbled beer matter on top. Dried grapefruit rind, sweet grape, plum and apricot are backed up by doughy malt and wilted greens aromas. Light, racy texture. Tangy, sweet and funky flavors. Tight fisted bitterness is out of proportion -- too big and assertive for the lean texture and crisp tang. I've had this beer on tap at the brewery and it was better.

Sampled at the brewery (On the way to the Michigan Brewers Guild summer fest). May have been the first pour of the day (other reviews seem to be better).

A: Copper/golden-brown, nice lace.

S: Floral, citrus and grain.

T: Grain, slight citrus, slight astringency.

M: Moderate body and carbonation.

D: Alright.

Thanks for driving Mike!

Reviewed on 5/15/2010. Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a clear orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma of toasted malt, bready malt, light fruity sweetness, citrus. Flavor of caramel malt, a touch of citrus, and bready malt. Light and drinkable although a little boring flavor-wise.
