Updated Review 08/08
12 oz bottle thanks to Penney for bringing this back from Bloomington. As before the hop based IPA character comes through and no way in the world would I guess that this is a APWA.
High head, golden body that looks like a macro lager or Pilsner. Aroma is a strong hop based one but the packaged is supported and held up wth the strong malts.
Very nice beer, but a bit odd in terms of its styling.
Original Review 01/06
22 oz bomber.
This was really, really nice, but for some reasons that I was not expecting.
Golden pour, with a little cloudiness that looked more like chill haze than anything else. Nice persistent head, and some sticky lacing.
The aroma and the taste were simply very different to what I was expecting. It turned out to be a sweet, mildly hopped IPA type beer, more like an English IPA, and had some mild citrus notes, in particular orange and lemon.
Very tasty, rather unusual and very drinkable. A nice departure.
