3.49/5 rDev -3.3%
From the 12 f,l. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 22,2014.
It really looks nice with its copper-medium amber pour and modest cream colored head,. It looks like a craft beer. Active carbonation and great clarity.
The aroma does put forth a noticeable caramel malt character but it does not take long for the earthy and floral hops to drop by.
The body is in the medium range.
Interestingly, I get a bevy of hops on the nose but those are not what I get in the taste at least immediately. Those roasted pale malts jump in first and then the hops find a way to introduce themselves later.

3.64/5 rDev +0.8%
12 ounce bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Clear, medium amber colored with a finger or so of creamy tan foam that lasts a bit before reducing to a froth. Plenty of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a slight sticky lacing.
Aroma: Lightly floral, grassy hops, slightly citrus.
Taste: Hoppy but mildly so as compared to some other APA's thatch I have had. Piney and grassy.
Mouth Feel: Medium bodied and creamy. A little slick with a lasting finish.
Overall: A really nice beer. I wish it was a year round offering.
