(12oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours clear golden color with off-white head. Light carbonation. Aroma has grapefruit, lemon, resin and some dank aromas. Taste has some bitterness, but is mostly malty like Fat Tire. Medium bodied with chunky texture. Bitter finish. Not a fan of this att all. Not sure why this beer is so highly rated on this site; its like a hoppy version of fat tire.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a faded amber color with a one finger white foamy head. Nice dissipation leaves runny messy lacing all about.
The smell starts off with some cooked caramel malts bleeding into a citrus rind. Light toast also balances.
The taste was mildly bitter with an okay semi-sweet citrus and caramel part to it.
The mouthfeel had a semi-bitter harshness from the citrus rind. I'd say it was light bodied.
Overall, for an APA, I wasn't that impressed. Glad I tried it, but pretty sure I'd have other seasonal APA's before this.

It's a solid beer but nothing special

A - Pours a rich gold with a thin head, which rapidly falls to a ring and island. Small bubbles of evenly spread carbonation float to the surface. Reasonable start.

S - Resinous/herbal hops, peach, pineapple, light breadiness, slightly floral.

T - Refined herbal hops initially. Drink becomes watery and tasteless in the middle before light fruitiness appears. Finishes with an bubblegum edge. Aftertaste is lightly hoppy with a bit of caramel.

M - Far too watery. The light carbonation is nice, but the beer need more body.

D - I would struggle to give this anything other than an average score. There is nothing particularly dislikeable about the beer, but by the same token, nothing to get excited about.

a: clear gold color, no carbonation, little head ever appears, nice thick lace ring
s: soft piney hop aroma with light citrus
t: hoppy, citrus tastes are overcome with salty beef taste, kind of odd mix; finishes crisply with light hop bitterness
m: light to medium body finishes with mild carbonated spritz
d: fairly easy to drink, but the flavors didn't come together well enough for me

Not much aroma on opening the bottle. Lovely orange-marmaladey hops on the palate, with zest and pith. Lots of sticky malt and a rather thick mouthfeel make it slightly syrupy. Hops counteract the sweetness giving a decently balanced beer.

The finish is bitter enough to be pleasant, but not as bitter as the aroma hops lead one to expect.

It's a decent, enjoyable beer, but given the price of it here as an import, I doubt I'll buy it again.
