A:
Golden color can see clearly trough the glass

S:
A very malty aroma. When I first poured it had a very faint hint of floral hops which quickly dissipated.

T:
Hint of Grapefruit. Not bitter at all. Very drinkable

M:
Very Light bodied. Medium Carbonation

O:
Very drinkable beer. Great beer after a long day in the sun. Goes down with ease. Nice session beer.

12 ounce bottle, Brewed on 12/31/13.

Pours near clear, w/ bubbles continuing to rise. Off white head is moderate in size and leaves a typical film, collar and respectable thicker low sheeting and scattered lace upon a gentle swirl.

Nose is faintly of some piney hops/grapefruit.

Resin and more pine hops on the palate. Grapefruit comes to mind. Respectable and nicely crafted APA. As somebody else remarked this one does not blend the lines between APA and IPA. Aggressive? No. Highly sessionable? Yes.

Quite dry in the long and hoppy finish. Worth a try.
