A: Pours a lightly hazy medium honey/apricot in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and faint copper highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy sudsy beige head that reduces to a medium to large patch of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit pith hops over the top of lighter aromas of grainy + caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of grainy and caramel malts with a light amount of sweetness. That is followed by slightly stronger than moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit pith hops which imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and quite enjoyable, thanks to my in-laws for bringing this one back from the wedding they attended in Gainesville. Alcohol is well hidden and I could easily have a couple of these. Refreshing.

Had on tap in a pint. Stumpknocker has all the things you would want out of a mid 5%abv APA. Moderate head, great clarity. A very good Pale Ale that I will be buying again.
