4.06/5 rDev +2.5%
Served: 18 August 2014
Serving: Bottle into pint glass
Appearance: 4.25/5. Pours a crystal clear light yellow color with some deeper golden hues. Looks a lot like an AAL, but definitely a bit darker. Leaves magnificent lacing.
Smell: 4/5. Lively citrus hop aroma with slight malt sweetness.
Taste: 4/5. Appreciable levels of citrus hoppiness with a solid malt backbone that adds almost lager-like notes of breadiness. The beer is incredibly balanced. Finishes drier than I'd expect for an APA.
Mouthfeel: 4/5. Medium-high carbonation and good malt backbone makes the beer both refreshing and full-bodied.
Overall: 4.25/5. One of the best standard APAs I've had. Lighter in body than SNPA, but still big on the flavor without being too over-the-top for the style. Would highly recommend.

3.72/5 rDev -6.1%
Brilliant clarity, frothy ivory head that lingers. Aroma is dominated by pine, earthy and floral hops, and a touch of tropical fruit. Flavor lacks a bit in comparison, fairly bitter dominant in the finish. Malt is somewhat bready, but those bittering hops kill the taste for me. Citrus eventually comes out, but the bitterness overwhelms.
