Pours a hazy gold color with a small white head that faded fast and left minimal lacing. Smells of caramel, fresh cut grass, floral hops, light lemon zest and grains or some wet bread. Pretty light hop presence in the nose, but pretty well balanced for an APA. Tastes like it smells with caramel, tea leaf, herbs, fresh cut grass, floral hops, lemon, toasted grains, sweet bread like French toast and mild spices. The hop spices have a little bite and mix well with the grains for a well balanced brew. Mouthfeel is light, crisp and refreshing, average carbonation, a medium body and a malty sweetness that shows the light spices off and finished slightly bitter. Nice beer overall, it got better with each sip and is a session option.

A very tasty american pale ale. Too light in color but a great taste. Citrus a bit, nice hop flavor. Feels an drinks like a beer. Good level alcohol content without the overbearing amount you find in some pints. This could be your all day good grillin beer. Recommended by this guy for sure.

A: Pours a crystal clear deep copper to amber in color with some moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy off-white head that very slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a very thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet caramel and grainy malts along with some lighter amounts of citrus and pine/resin hops. There is a very subtle hint of floral hops as well.

T: The taste is very similar to the smell for this beer with a pretty solid sweet caramel malt body and just a touch of graininess. There is also a decent amount of hop flavors from the citrus and pine/resin hops. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Refreshing - I was drinking this outside around a pool in the middle of a warm summer afternoon. Easy to drink and sessionable. I enjoyed it as did most others at this party - appealing to beer geeks and average joes.
