12oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to vonschplieffen for this one.
A: Clear gold body beneath a finger of clumpy white head. Ok retention and lace. Not bad.
S: Interesting. More hoppy than malty, with some really distinctive fruity/vegetal notes: green apple (almost like a Lambic), green pepper, cotton candy, and citrus. I'm a fan.
T: Less bizarre here, but quite good - grapefruit and pine hoppiness leads things off, followed by some candied malt sweetness, and closed out by clean, dry bitterness. Good stuff.
M: A little light on body, with plenty of frothy, fizzy carbonation. Ok.
O: Really enjoyable APA. Plenty of flavor, some fascinating hop notes (presumably from the Simcoe), and terrific drinkability for its strength. Well worth trying.

A- Pours a crystal clear golden yellow color with a fairly thin white head. Head has pretty solid retention, forms a thin cap of bubbles and leaves pretty much no lacing.
S- Smell is pretty light. Picking up citrus hops and a good bready malt backbone.
T- A nice little hop bite. A fair amount of sweet malts. A bit of tropical fruits.
M- Medium in body and a tad bit higher than medium in carbonation.
O- A good example of the style for sure and was really easy to drink.
