look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a pure honey/gold into an oversize nonic. No haze, a small off-white head and impressive head lacing for an APWA. Looks refreshing!

Smell is soft tropical fruit (tangerine, orange), the slightest bit of hop bitterness, and maybe a hint of sweet grass. There is a little hop astringency and some floral notes. Also very refreshing smelling!

The taste is hop bitterness & a little hop oil/astringency (not overwhelming for me, pleasant). There is a floral/earthy component. Once I tasted it, the smell turned more towards dried grass and floral esters. There is some grainy/malt character there on the tongue (I believe I can taste the wheat) as well as some sweet vegetable/tobacco notes. Not as drying as an IPA on the back end, but still warm. Light to medium body, not as much on the crisp side as creamy. This beer lost me just a little on the bitter aftertaste.

Overall a good beer and a great take on the style. Drinkable and refreshing.

After I drank the first few sips of this is tasted really Hoppy but in a good way. Fairly Floral. Good thick taste. Hard to describe but even though it is not the same type of beer it really tasted like a beer that I had last week in California. Pliney the Elder! The taste was about 80% similar. So if you want something that tastes similar but live in Texas like I do go buy some Little Sumpin to satisfy your Pliney the Elder needs.
