Slightly hazy amber color with a thin beige head with short retention, but keeping an eternal plate.
Although it is more caramely than usual, it has a nice aroma with notes of grapefruit, spices, honey and watermelon.
Flavor balanced towards malt with notes of hay, grapefruit, pine, caramel and toasted malts, nuts, lots of American yeast, spices, papaya, orange marmalade, flowers, lemon and tea bags. Dry aftertaste with a nice but relatively medium bitterness.
Medium body with mild carbonation. Alcohol of 6.4% abv is well disguised.
Not sure I would call this APA, it feels heavier with hops just partially offsetting its caramelly body (although hops are far from immaterial). Nevertheless, I understand this is somewhat their proposal, an English IPA with American hops, yeast and spices. I would say it is more like an intense ESB with some American notes. Not bad, but not my cup of tea. And additionally with a bad pricing.
