24oz twist off bottle poured into pint glass, no freshness date.
A: Pours a nice amber with a one inch off white head that fades into a cap rather quickly.
S: Big bready aroma upfront with hints of flora hops hinding in the back of the inital bread and biscut aroma.
T/MF: Lots of big biscut flavor upfront coupled with nice bubbly carbonation and a decent hop bite. Not quite as juicy as other APAs I've had (Alpha King for example) but this is a nice change of pace. Still I feel that the bread and biscut flavor dominates too heavily for my tastes, not quite as smooth and leaves a bit of a dry aftertaste.
D: I held this beer up against Alpha King because I wanted to know the differences, and boy are they evident. That being said this is still a very solid beer and one that I will always come back to.
