look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: A medium orange amber in color, with a nice soft white head. Just short of crystal clear.

S: Pine and a touch of grapefruit. There is some light caramel sweetness in the background. There is a touch of earthiness in the finish.

T: The bitterness is immediate right away, solid, but not overpowering. Pine and juniper come out in the flavor right away. Fresh baked bread notes follow, and it finishes with a touch of caramel, and a little herbal bitterness.

M: Medium in body, the carbonation is certainly active, but not overpowering. Crisp and clean on the finish.

O: Overall a really good beer. Clean, crisp, refreshing. Enough hops to keep you interested, but not overly bitter. All around good APA. Extra points for being fairly cheap, and available nearly everywhere.
