4.3/5  rDev +22.2%

Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.

A- Lighter than I was expecting, a darkish yellow, almost amber, with a fluffy white head that dissipated after about a minute. Not much lacing.

S- Only a little malty smell, and some grass and piney hops on the nose.

T- EXTREMELY well balanced between some malt taste, citrus and piney hops, and a nice bitterness on the back-end.

MF- Good mouthfeel, thicker than most beers of this color, but light enough to be a nice thirst-quencher in the summer.

Overall, this is a perfect example of a summer APA, for me. Doesn't do anything crazy, but is completely solid in all regards and is a perfect cookout brew.

Poured ice cold into a Sam Adams glass. Nice bright white 2" head.
Almost clear bright yellow orange color and good carbonation.
Smell was lightly piney and slightly citrusy, with a medium bite at the end.
Smooth and medium bodied. Defintiely improved as the beer warmed up.
I'd have another!

Poured from the bottle to a standard shaker. With a vigorous pour this beer produces a fairly pale amber color like dull gold jewelry with a tall 3cm of frothy white head. The color sort of lacks any real luster and seems a bit flat. Light penetration is high. Head dissipates rather quickly, but leaves good lacing on the glass. The smell is rather malt forward for an American pale. There is strong biscuit and white bread on the nose. There is some mild citrus in the form of orange and maybe some grapefruit juice, but it's rather muted; smells good over all though. The taste has more of the white bread and warm biscuit flavor with a mellow citrus and bitterness on the palate. Palate overall is medium, carbonation is good. Seems like a good session beer. Overall, this beer is pretty good, but definitely not the equal to Back Forty's other beers I have had.

S: Light biscuity malt scent with a touch of hops.

T. Mild and light on hops for style

M: Thin to medium body; lively, medium level of carbonation.

O: a rather drab, malt-forward version of APA style.
