An old favorite. Here goes:
A: Pours a clear orange-amber with a nice head. The head is fluffy and leaves plenty of lacing.
S: OK, but somewhat muted. I do like what I can smell, however. Some amber malt and ordinary brewer's yeast gives way to mild cascade hops. Citrus and some grapefruit from the hops.
T: Very, very refreshing. Very sweet caramel and amber malts giving way to cascade and chinook hops. The hops taste of grapefruit and citrus, and you taste them at the back of the throat upon swallowing. However, the hop portion is quite mild and it's balanced against the lightly-kilned malt. Very good.
M: Mouthfeel is perfect. Light and well-carbonated, just like a regular APA.
O: A very good representation of the APA style. Will have again and again.
