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

Got this one from Wasatch, thanks John for the great package and for correcting my mistake

App: slightly hazy pale gold with a balding white head, and very thin lacing

S: big hops smell, all the "C hops" give this beer a very cirusy aroma, grapefuit, orange, some tropical fruits, a fair amount of malt gives it a complimenting sweetness, very nice

T: much like the aroma, bitter juicy hops thst are very well balanced by a sweet biscuity malt

M: kinda thin and watery, at first sniff this reminded me of FFF Alpha King but much thinner and less resiny.

D: if I lived out west this would be a go to session beer, good bitterness but not so much that I won't be able to taste my next beer not like SNPA which can tend to overload the palate. I wish we could get an APA like this in New England.
