12 oz can. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of piney hops, ripe fruit and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is of herbal hops, bready malt and some fruity notes. Finish is long and herbal. I can’t say I enjoyed the brew.

Pours hazy foggy gold with a frothy white foam head. Smells like sweet nutty toasty bready honey caramel malt notes, orange marmalade, white grapefruit, lemon peel, apricot, with some peppery herbal spice and floral resinous earthy grassy pine. Tastes like nutty toasty bready honey caramel malts, citrus marmalade, apricot, grapefruit, tangerines, lemon, with peppery herbal spice and floral resinous earthy grassy pine. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice extra pale ale.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a hazy bronzed copper color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Sly messy lace. The aroma had some smooth soft citrusy hops a bit sweeter than expected with barely any bitterness. Malts seem somewhat smooth and sweet too. The flavor was a bit sweeter than I thought it would be, still acceptable, as there’s nothing really off. Aftertaste was a blend of the sweetness of the hops and malts. Finish was malty. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, pretty decent APA, maybe a bit old school.

From the makers of Captains Daughter wow this is disappointing. Very malty. Started very sweet and ended malty. I didn't get much in the way of citrus as mentioned in the reviews. Ill stick with Captains Daughter.

Can purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

This one pours a light clear amber, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like caramel malt, grassy hops, and light grapefruit.

This is fairly unremarkable. It's pretty malty, and the hop character seems a bit muted, and just maybe a little bit boring. It's certainly drinkable, but it's a little too sweet, and not all that crisp, unfortunately.

This is light bodied, not crisp enough, with a good level of carbonation.

Not the best stuff from this brewery.
