Pours as clear as beer can be. A small, bubbly, white head is fed from below by a continuous bubbling. Some lace is left behind.
Kind of a citrusy piney balance with a malt backbone in the nose.
A damnfine APA. Soooo Refreshing. A wonderful balance between citrusy hops and biscuity/toasty malt.
Light bodied and niceley carbonated. A smooth yet hoppy finish with a nice tingling sensation on the tounge.
This may be the ultimate in session beers. Probably one of the most drinkable beers I've ever had.

A- Poured from the 12oz bottle to my glass with a fairly clear golden yellow body. A cap forms on the brew to about a finger but the fizzy texture alludes to me the poor retention. The head dies down to a small ring that leaves spotty lacing.
S- Aroma presents a nice blend of malts and hops. Prevalent aromas are of cracked cereal grains, citrus and floral hops as well as yeast bread and light fruits. A bit faint compared to some APAs but I don't have to stress too much to pick up what's happening.
T- Follows the nose and presents a balanced APA flavor. The hops are crisp with mostly flavors of citrus zest and oil as well as floral notes. They do bring slight herbal and spicy hints but those are secondary. Base of cereal grains, biscuit, lightly sweet and crystal malts with a fruity bready American Ale yeast coming into play.
MF- Light bodied with a crisp, creamy texture that has some fizziness to it. Carbonation at a high end level which lends that crispiness and helps the hops shine. Light bitter finish.
Simple but enjoyable APA that provides a nice mix of Cascade citrus with some spicy, floral hops as well. Crisp and refreshing.
