Thanks to my cousin Sonny for sending this my way.

A- Can poured into a glass for the review with a ever so slightly hazy light amber body. A white cap builds up to one finger with decent retention. Frothy ring leaves small spotty lace.

S- Balanced aroma reveals slight citrus hop notes and pale malts. Notes of grapefruit, orange, biscuit, lightly caramelized grain and yeast bread. Lacking some overall strength.

T- Hops bring citrus notes of grapefruit and orange as well as some floral tones. Malts are present with hints of cereal grain, toast, biscuit and light caramel. Light yeast fruits and bread.

MF- Light bodied with a crisp, slightly creamy texture. Carbonation comes in at a medium-high level with a light bitterness in the finish.

Solid APA that finds a nice balance between citrus hops and light malts.
