This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a burnt golden color with a slight transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen ever so slightly rising to fill a quickly dissipating finger’s worth of white foamy head. Not much lace. The aroma had some sweet danky onion, light citrus and a little bit of sharp bitter pine. Low malt quality - really subtle. The flavor was moderately sweet through the previously mentioned aromas. Bitterness did find it’s way into the overall taste fairly nice. The aftertaste was fully blended. Finish was danky sweet and bitter pine. The feel was about medium bodied, perhaps slightly under with a clean sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, pretty nice APA worthy of having again.

Can poured into stemless wine glass. Hazy yellow straw with thick foamy head, just off-white, settles slowly into thin cap.

Citrus, grassy hops and a bit of grapefruit pith in the aroma.

Flavor is floral, citrus and light fruit. Some grassy and earthy hops but overall smooth and not aggressive. Light bitterness balances the hint of sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and lighter than medium body. Clean and refreshing.

A nice easy going brew, nothing really wrong with it. I could sip on a few in a row and be content. I think I would like in the summer as a beach beer.

I tried this at Mews Tavern in Rhode Island. It poured a clear orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hop hints that included some citrus flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with some fruit notes present. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a solid beer.

On-tap 5/13/2016 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grassy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of floral hops that is quickly followed by sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time.

Golden in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Light in flavor. Pine, grapefruit pith and orange zest. Lower in sweetness. Light bodied. The boardslide was a way better apa than this.

On tap.

A mildly hazy light orange with a dense, off-white head with good retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose is bright and fruity, clean and refreshing, with mostly citrus and with a mild stone fruit note. Clean, rather pulp-free mandarins, fuzz-free peach and a little grape are present. A faint malt character is present, complementing the nose. On the palate, this opens with a mild and pleasant bitterness and a nice, juicy hop flavor. Again, there's citrus and stone fruit that dominate, and the mild sweetness adds to the juiciness of the hop flavors. Drying on the finish, this beer is clean and refreshing. Recommended.
