Served in a pint glass at average fridge temps. Bottle has a best before date of 1/4/14. It was in a clearance bin at the local shop so I figured I'd give it a try.

Appearance: Light honey colored with a firm, off white and creamy head of fine bubbles. A bit of turbidity that could be from the temperature however, I did notice some tiny floating particles when the beer was at room temp. After a minute or two in the glass the head begins to sink.

Nose: The aroma just leaps out of the glass. I'm sitting like a 2 feet away and I can still pick up citrus notes, grapefruit, cooked limes, spice hop notes, key lime pie, no maltiness at all. Almost a meaty quality (not a good thing) probably from yeast autolysis.

Taste and Finish: Hop forward, slight bitterness bite, limes and citrus, spicy bite at the back of my throat, no hot alcohols or solvents. Fairly light body with a citrusy finish that lingers.

I'd say this isn't a bad beer even 7 months past its freshness date. I'd like to try a fresher version of this APA to compare. Great session beer at 4%

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy 3+" off white head which slowly falls leaving some moderate lacing. Plenty of streaming carbonation. Color is a cloudy golden-orange with some sediment in suspension.

Aroma: pungent citrus punch you in the nose along with yeasty bread dough in the background.

Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat oily and sticky with a dry, slightly astringent finish.

Flavor: nice blend of citrus and earthy hops, some caramel and white bread flavors, lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

Overall: well done and one of the better beers I have had in this style.
