4.43/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, high carbonation, orange-brown in color, clear

Smell: pale malt and citrus hops

Taste: citrus hops, grapefruit, caramel, and a granola taste

Mouthfeel: bitter with sweetness in the background and a bitter end, high carbonation, light bodied

Overall: I am not a huge fan of this style, but I would be if more were made like this. This is about the juiciest APA I have had. Grapefruit just bursts...There is sweetness that mixes well. This one never gets mouth puckeringly bitter but never lets on it is a sweet beer either...This is what I would get if I wanted an APA...If not to style, this would come in still about a 4

3.39/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Amber color with a thick one finger head with good retention.
Aroma with lots of papaya, flowers and bread malt.
Flavor of earthy and herbal hops, minerals, although pale there is a bit of toasty going on, some pine and cooked vegetables. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation.
I wouldn't classify it as an APA; it is more like an English Pale ale, though it uses American traditional hops. I simply didn't get it, maybe the yeast. It is just 3 months old, but it feels older.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear gold color with a head that dissipates fairly quickly. Light yet complex taste with an acidic mouthfeel. Has a bit of that numbing brightness that I associate with the more drinkable macro lagers, but is thick and heavy on the tongue. Slightly metallic aftertaste.
