22oz bomber from demcorhip, poured into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy orange-red-copper colour with a 1 inch head. Great head retention and lots of lace. Carbonation is very mild. Aroma is very sweet with honey, clover, all kinds of floral hop aromas and a bit of citrus rind. There's a nice backbone of crackery malt to balance it all out, not overly complex but delicious.

Taste is well balanced with lots of medicinal herbal notes, grapefruit bitterness, and floral honey sweetness. There's a decent amount of cracker malt here with a touch of caramel. Again, not overly complex but a very flavourful APA that definitely leans on the bitter, hoppy side. Medium-heavy body with mellow carbonation, maybe a little bit thick for the style, but nonetheless it's a really drinkable APA, full of flavour, bordering on an IPA in its hoppiness.
