A-Golden-yellow. Transforms bright orange when held to light. Creamy, foamy white head few fingers thick. The pillow soft head breaks down into cascading waves of tide that clings to glass nicely. Above average retention. Spotty lacing is left after beer is gone. Consistent tendrils of carbonation bubbles whiplash around the height of glass.
S-Peach. Apricot. Slight pine. Orange. Lemon. Astringency. Green apple. Floral bouquets.
T-Super peach. Like sticking a straw in a soft lush peach and sucking the nectar. Slight resin. Clean alcohol tingle. Slight pine. Sour cider. APWA's are so refreshing you barely perceive wheat. Would give taste a 6 if I could.
M-Moderate/medium body. Smooth. Creamy. Fluid yet can be swished and slightly chewed. Wets palate. Leaves thinnest oily trace of lubrication. Love the medium level of sour citrus aftertaste. Won't pucker your mouth yet makes you smack your lips. Clean alcoholic tingle.
O-Versatile beer. It can be labeled IPA if need be. There is enough bitter hop and pine in it. I tend to keep a sixer at all times of Sumpin' Sumpin'. Great alone or with food. Super refreshing that doesn't compromise on flavor. I love it's level of 7.5% ABV as well. Brownie points for the artsy vintage bottle label.
