3.48/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Nice copper color with a full, off-white head that settles into a thin bubbly film.
Smell is very malt-forward. There is a touch of citrus there, but mostly pale and caramel malt. Pretty underwhelming.
Flavor lines up pretty close to the aroma. Very light on the hops and while it's evident that the brewers aren't shooting for a west coast IPA, this could stand a little more bitterness. Light citrus fades quickly leaving a nice malt combination that gives a mild bready finish.
Mouthfeel is a strength with a light-medium body and crisp, lively carbonation.
Overall, this was solid, if unspectacular. Nothing really stood out other than the relative lack of hops. Not bad, but very mild for an APA, bordering on bland.

3.09/5 rDev -13.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Clear red-copper color with a finger amount of head that holds very nicely. The lacing is also very good at sticking and holding to the glass.
Aroma: I picked up some orange-grapefruit from the American hops, but with some kind of funk-tang I can't identify.
Taste: Grapefruit comes through on the taste with some of that funk. A slight breadiness was easier to pickup when warmed up more. Hint of toffee like carmel. The bitterness is harsh on the tongue, distracts me from the flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and light body. Again the bitter harshness does something that seems to affect the feel.
Overall: The harsh bitterness was unfavorable and the hop aroma was less than expected. The malt character was difficult to pickup until warmer. For the style it seems a little off with a few things.
