4/5 rDev +5%
Pours a white fizzy fluffy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, hazy honey orange color.
Nose brings nice grassy noble hops, with a little spicy American touch to them, a bit floral, very touch fruity notes, faint malt base.
Taste starts with juicy malts out front, not a lot just enough for a nice base, followed quickly by grassy spicy hops, a bit earthy and leafy and even floral, again a mix of noble and American it seems, with a touch of fruity notes and very light citrus rind. Finish dries off as the juicy malt fades, gets pretty bitter but not a ton, with more lingering grassy leafy hops, that bring a bit more citrus peel notes and floral characters.
Mouth is med bod, nice carb.
Overall pretty nice, about what a typical APA should be, nice base malt balanced with good fresh hops, nice noble American blend, good bitter lingering finish, sessionable and tasty. Very enjoyable.

Pours a hazy golden amber with two finger head and nice lacing on the glass. Smells bready. Not much hop/citrus coming out in the nose. Tastes well balanced. Not too hoppy, and I love the my hoppy APA's. This would be a great session beer. Mouthfeel is pleasant and rich with just enough carbonation. Overall, would make a great session APA and would be a great beer to turn others onto pale ales.

Pours a half finger of head on a hazy straw colored body.
The aroma is mild pine and honey.
The taste is strong grapefruit bitterness with a short finish. It's straight to the point.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.
It has a bold bitterness for a pale ale... but it's still good.
