3.65/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Bright red copper, quite clear with a huge frothy head and lots of lacing. The smell is citrus and floral hops with a bit of a metallic or yeasty character in there as well. The taste follows the smell with the main players being the hops, maybe more floral flavors than what is found in other west coast pale ales and IPAs but regardless the focus of the beer is clear. The malt is in there as well but only for support of the hops and seems to be mainly comprised of just typical caramel malts. I would have liked it to be a bit more well rounded. This beer has a moderate body and carbonation the finish is quite dry and puckering. Overall this is a good beer, but to me the APA style should yield beers that are good for a session and this one doesn't seem to fit that bill. It appears that other reviewers are finding more malt than I do, could have something to do with the age of the beers I have, they are getting close to the best by date.
