First had: on tap at their brewery

Second of two APAs on tap, both about average overall. Slightly hazy amber pour, with a well-retaining white head that left a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma was a bit sweeter than its Intergalactic counterpart, noticeably floral. Taste of bready malts, floral and citrus hops. Not much else to say really. About medium in body, moderate carbonation, drinkable, but not really memorable.

Beer poured from a growler into a 7venth sun tulip because I can.

Beer is amber and hazy with a white head, moderate retention, some carbonation, some lacing, looks fine.

Aroma is light and a little hoppy, there is an off aroma in there that I can't quite place.

Beer is light in body sweet up front and a little boozy / fusel in the flavor, the beer is oddly strong but missing most of the hop character that I expected from the nose, not a great beer and not a repeat.

Growler courtesy of drabmuh. Served in a 7venth Sun tulip.

Pours a clear yellow with a good white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. Looks great, probably because it was poured by a Certified Beer Server.

Nose has some slight floral and citrus notes with some grain there as well. A bit too much straight malt and extract there and carrying over to the flavor. Good Hops in the background. Light and crisp with some bitterness and tannin. Pretty good.

The beer is golden orange with a small white head. The aroma offers some light hop character with mild citrus. The beer is light bodied, and while the flavor is somewhat subtle relative to other beers of this ilk, everything comes together nicely. Light citrus and a mild hop bill. Malt profile is light, but enough to support the various flavors. Overall, pretty good.

Big thanks goes out to BRoss242 for sharing this one! Served from growler into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a golden yellow with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, earth, and earthy hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This Pale Ale was very well balanced which made it easy to drink. The flavor was very citrus forward as was the aroma. This made it quite nice. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance.

Thanks, Paul. 32oz growler from the source.

A - Pours a golden yellow color, white frothy head, spotty lace, thin cap.

S - Not quite a light as I like my APA's...too malty and sweet, a load of hops as well. Really smells like an IPA, and a tad too sweet.

T - Again, more of an IPA then anything. The almost 7% alcohol makes it a little slower to drink, you can just plow through this beer. Lots of toasted malts, bready notes, grass, pine.

M - Light to medium, good carbonation, oily finish.

O - Doesn't hit the APA style like it should and isn't as refreshing as most other APA's I've had. I think this beer needs to be toned down a little if they're going to call it an APA. Decent.

Thanks to Sean for sharing this, as well as a number of other 7venth Sun offerings. Served in a Surly Darkness glass.

A - White foam settles to a thin collar and some wispy patches on top, but no lace. Hazy orange body.

S - Somewhat malty and surprisingly sweet. Icing sugar and cotton candy malt backdrop with some light orange, grassy, and perhaps herbal hop notes.

T - Taste is again malt-heavy, with sugar cookie and buttered biscuit mixing with a touch of orange citrus flavor. Light herbal bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium body, nice smooth and creamy texture, lower carbonation, and a lightly dry finish. The ABV seems a tad excessive for a 'pale ale', but I didn't notice it while I was drinking my glass.

D - Pretty run-of-the-mill pale. A tad buttery, but otherwise serviceable. I probably wouldn't bother with this one again, seeing as the IPA clocks in at only .4% more alcohol and it's slightly better across the board.

On tap.
Pours a nice copper with a pretty thin white head. Pretty nice lacing.
Nice hoppy aroma, the citrus really shines, I also get some sweet fleshy fruit.
Great taste, getting close to an IPA, nice citrus hops with some tropical fruit, tangirne and orange. Just a little sweetness in there.
Medium body for a pale ale, fairly vibrant carbonation.
Very nice. I have really enjoyed everything I've tryed from 7venth Sun so far and look forward to trying more!

Copper color with a two finger head that sticks around leaving great lacing behind. Aroma of strong citrus notes, dank hops and pure deliciousness! Taste follows the nose bitter but with a decent malt backbone, slightly sweet but very slightly not too much. This is a great pale ale the boarders on ipa. Really showcases the Amarillo hop. Easy and smooth beer, hides alcohol well. I want more!
