12oz bottle (date stamp I108 15:00) served in a nonic glass.

Appearance: Mostly clear dark gold with just a bit of chill haze. Persistent thin white head with some islands, sheets, and strands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Really amazing smell with lots going on: citrus, pine, floral, herbal, berries, tropical fruit.

Taste: Citrus and tropical fruit up front, bready malt middle, and then pine and citrus light bitter finish that finishes a bit sharply.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation. A little thin. Dry finish.

Overall / Drinkability: Probably one of the more aroma-heavy APAs I've had. Easily drinkable, very interesting, and I would not mind another, or at least a full 16oz pint. Went well with vegetable lo mein.

Pours a clear honey yellow with a thick white head that dissipates rather quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma is biscuits and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet malt with a nice hop bite in the finish. Feel is crisp and clean. Overall a very nice session ale.

A - Pours a clear gold with a large two finger foamy white head. Good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is orange peel, grapefruit rind and toasted biscuit.

T - The taste is orange, lemon, grapefruit, toasted biscuit, caramel malt and a light hop bitterness.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft crisp finish.

O - This is a really nice APA. The flavors are bright and clean and at 5% ABV very sessionable.

Clear golden amber bidy with tall slightly off white head. Smooth malty sweetness and bright citrusy hops with pronounced orange zest, sweeter grapefruit pith variety, and lychee. Malts seem to take center stage and contribute a really smooth and thicker mouthfeel. The hops meet just about in the middle with a clearly present brightness and lingering, fresh citrusy finish. This is enjoyable, crushable, low bitterness, and up there with the smoothest pale ales I’ve ever had.

One of my favorite Midwestern IPA’s but I would change the artwork on the bottle to represent an actual astronaut or include a picture of the moon on the bottle. Nonetheless, delicious hops.

Clear, bright medium gold color with very good white cap and lacing.

Aroma of sweet malt with bright, citrusy hops.

Taste appears as a burst of clean hops with a zing of citrus more like zest or rind rather than the citrus fruit itself. Several flavor sensations going on at once, the most prominent of which appears grapefruit to me. Malt is present like the core of a cable which while not visible is apparently there. Finish is clean with a lingering yet tasty bitterness.

Medium full texture with balancing carbonation.

As good a Pale Ale as I've come across in awhile and that's not for lack of looking.
