500ml bottle with a slick egg shell white colored label. On the front is a small green stick figure with a belly jumping up in the air. Continue going around the label and you'll find a stamped born on date(mine was born on 12/21/12), a brief history of the brewery, and all the Government information. Poured into an Imperial Samuel Smith pint glass.
This beer looked a little like a Hefeweizen to me. It was a cloudy lemon juice yellow. It was so cloudy that I could only see the brief silhouette of my fingers on the other side of the glass. On top was a 1/4 of an inch pearl white head of foam. It had good retention that left behind a long lasting small white film and a number white streaks of lace around the glass. Loved that hazy lemon color.
As soon as the cap came off, I got a strong whiff of citrus hops. It settled down a little when the beer was poured. The citrus hops was at medium strength. Behind the citrus hops was a load of grapefruit, a little lemon, plenty of pine, and just a subtle whiff of toasted malts. That's a nice aroma!
The taste was on the hoppy side, but the hops weren't overly hoppy. I got a big bite of citrus hops upon frist sip. After the hops passed, in comes a dash of lemon, a good sized grapefruit punch, a few pine needles, and then it finishes up with a clean malt backbone. Nice refreshing hoppy taste.
The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied with a nice hoppy yet malty aftertaste. There was some citrus hops, pine, grapefruit, and a little toasted malt. This aftertaste won't linger.
I like to give a shout out to my good friend Del who gave me this beer. This nice refreshing hoppy APA. I could see this as a nice summer beer. Would I drink it again? If only I got it in my state.

On draft at Capone's.
The beer is pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma is mild, offering a touch of fresh hops, citrus, flowery hops. Watery body. Very light and quaffable. A fine choice for warmer weather. Fresh hops and a healthy bitterness gain strength in the finish. A very tasty brew. I can't understand why the individual bottles of this are so expensive. While this is certainly tasty, I simply don't understand the $8 price tag I've seen in the DC metro area. That's more expensive than a bottle of Bourbon County Brand Stout. This was a pretty tasty beer, but nothing particularly special or noteworthy that justifies the exhorbitant price.
