A very underrated beer, imo. I had one the other day immediately after a Bell's Two Hearted IPA, and it did seem a little dull. But when it's your first beer of the day or particularly when you're hot and thirsty it really hits the spot. And, no, I don't think Bud et. al. tastes good after cutting the grass; I'd much prefer water, thank you very much.
It's light orange/yellow with a nice head and lacing. The aroma is pleasantly bread-y with a nice citrus smell that follows. The taste is very similar with a perfectly carbonated mouth feel.
Overall, a terrific APA that I will come back to again and again. It's so well balanced that it may lose points for some people. I put it easily in the same class as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
