Nice orange-gold color to the body. Thick, creamy white head with fair lacing down my pint glass. Powerful hop aroma: pine and citrus. Golden malt notes to the smell. Rich, malt taste with a wonderful undercurrent of hop bitterness. Medium bodied.

An outstanding canned beer. Rich and flavorful throughout and a delight to drink.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz can.

Pours a nice clear darker golden color with some nice copper notes. There is a frothy and dense and soapy 1.5 inch head. The head is nice and white and retention is near perfect. (4.5)

Aroma is of strong grainy malt; earthy notes and tons of caramel notes from the pale malts are intermingled with some grassy notes of hops and some slight pine notes. Nice APA aroma (3.5)

Flavor starts with strong malty notes of grains and some caramel sweetness. There is some nice piney hop notes and some grassy notes as well. Nice balance of hops and malt with the malts being the dominant ingredient. There are some good piney notes that balance the malts. Crisp and slightly resinous and a bit sticky. (4.0)(4.0)

Pretty good APA. Sticky hop notes with some piney resin. Nice medium body. Pretty delicious and balanced. Definitely true to the APA style. (4.0)

Poured from can into Perfect Pint glass

A. Poured this one pretty hard, yielding three-four fingers of off-white fluff. Some sticks to glass. Head dissipates over time as leaves a thin white bubbly head. Coloring is dark burnt orange and amber; translucent.

S. For me this is the most mediocre aspect of the beer. Muted/blunted nose. I get a bit of roasted malt and hops, but nothing compared to flavor.

T. What's muted on the nose is more intense, and becomes much more intense as it warms, in taste. I add to the roasty malt and hops a sense of citrus. I like this beer, perhaps not as much as Deviant Dale's, though.

M. Smooth, but hoppy and bitter on the end. Very enjoyable for hot but rainy day. Carbonation is mild to medium.

O. Very much a fan of this beer. I've had it several times but this is the first time I reviewed it, obviously. At 6.5%, I could enjoy this year round.
