5/5  rDev +34.8%

Hops: Columbus, Centennial, Cascade and Simcoe.
Malts: Pale, Special Aromatic, and Victory.

Poured from a can into a tumbler on 12.27.13.

A: See through golden. 1 finger fluffy head that retains well.

S: Delicious citrus, pine. Fantastic!

T: Pine, citrus, flower. Malt is there as a base.

M: Crisp. Perfect carbonation.

O: This was the first APA that I had ever tried and it blew me away. This beer changed my view of what beer could taste like. I expected a lip puckering bitterness but what I got instead was a wash of pine and citrus. It pushed me to challenge my tastebuds and explore other beer styles. This beer is my first love.

12 oz can into tulip

Appearance - Crystal clear light amber, 2 finger fluffy head with awesome retention and lacing. Great look.

Smell - Think light fresh squeezed orange juice, a bit sour, slight biscuits and toasty malts

Feel/Taste - Feels light and crisp with ample carb, medium-light body. Taste is like nose; light, juicy, and orangey citrus hops with a little kick of bitter and sour notes. Trails off with feint toasty biscuit malt to balance and slight bitterness, finishes very dry

Overall - Pretty solid APA, definitely citrus hop forward in a unique sour orange way. Crisp and sessionable feel for 5.6% ABV, but I would have liked just a touch more malt sweetness for balance in the body.
