From the tap it poured nicely with a nice tight head which dissipated slightly - The nose is hoppy kinda citrusy as in maybe a northwestern hops - A little malt balance is detectable - The taste is excellent with some malt background but nice grassy piney hops in the foreground - Has a nice medium body that invites another - Altogether a very good session beer

Serving type: on-tap

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, copper coloring with steady carbonation and a thin, low profile, off-white head. Nose of caramel and a subtle hops bitterness, with spicy and floral highlights. Flavors are more hop forward, with resinous and bitter notes, hints of grapefruit, and a sweet, roasted caramel backbone. Well balanced, and very drinkable. Smooth, light bodied. The aftertaste is peppery and bitter, with a slightly dry finish. Tasty.

On-tap at Mellow Mushroom, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is relatively clear yellowish amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose-orange seems to stand out in particular.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of citrusy hops along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a slight amount of crispness.
O: This is a nice easy drinking APA that is filled with aromas and flavors of citrus. It is a good choice if you are looking a flavorful beer that's very easy to drink.
