look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #77 (June 2013):

LOOK: Bright clear gold, excellent head

SMELL: Piney, orange peel, blond tobacco, parsley, faint green onion, light resin, crackers

TASTE: Very crisp, hop resin, bread crust, hop oil, herbal, earthy, minty, lighter bodied, dry, ample hop bitterness, lychee fruit, green tea, faintly spicy, long-lasting hop finish

Hopping ranges from old school to popular, far-away to the usual, with the additions of Chinook, Centennial, Topaz and Cascade. A very sessionable APA for the hopheads; a whole lot of fun knocking this one back. Starr Hill should think about making this a year-round option.
