3.18/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Copper color, fairly bright. Dark for an APA. Head is white but fades quickly. Leaves a ring of foam and a spotty layer atop the brew. A bit of spotty lace clings to the glass.

Bread, toffee, faint piney hops, metal, diacetyl. This is striking me as much more of an English ale than an APA, again.

Taste is much the same. Heavy toffee flavors, even a little raisiny fruit. There is still a bit of a metallic tinge to it, but it's not prominent. Are there hops here? I can't find them. Slight bitter aftertaste, but not hoppy. It's not bad, but it's no APA.

Heavy mouthfeel, slightly sticky, low carbonation.

Drinkability isn't bad, but it's not good, either.

I can't find any indication of how old this beer is, and I'd really love to hear that it's way better fresh. If I was grading it as an English-style ale, I'd rank it half a point higher across the board. As is, this is not at the top of my list of beers to revisit.
