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.

May not have been a good idea to forget about this brew in the back of my fridge. Not sure when it was bottled since its ?/16/14 for the date. Paid $2.49 for the single at Vintage Estate 2 months ago.

A - Thankfully no sediment floaties so it's newer than 6 months or filtered. Head is just a 1/4 inch but it sticks around forever. Color is an on par light amber brown clear.
S - Smells rather nice mild zesty citrus and lemon hops no hard pine or medicinal bitterness. Malty sweetness seems to be in check.
T - Very harsh bitter hops. Not too palatable really they seem balanced enough but I am not digging the taste. Like floor cleaner very medicinal and soapy. No good.
M - Sort of light to medium on the palate with very harsh lingering bitterness.

Not my thing in the slightest figured it would be terrible ended up being unbearably bitter yet not undrinkable. Would not get again.
