Grapefruit and a little pine from the hops. I was not expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised.

I really don't like the packaging but the beer is good.

Flavors of citrus peel and something interesting, possibly Szechuan peppercorn? I know, I know, but that's what I taste. Hoppy (imagine that). Herbal. Bitter. Astringent. Tannic, really. Remove some sweetness and the carbonation and I'm reminded of cab sauv. Long finish.

Not crazy about it, but good. Hop heads will enjoy.

Was first APA I tried. And I'm still in love with it. For me, it delivers on its name. It's an explosive, complex, evolving taste experience. Citrus (grapefruit), pine, rhubarb, dandelion tones are all there in a transcending fashion.
