3.9/5  rDev +1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle is dated 02/27/14 so around 2.5 months old.

A: Pours a clear gold with a small, fizzy white head. Head fizzes out pretty quickly to boot. Sparse little streaks of lacing and a little head retention.

S: Pleasant citrus bitterness with bits of pine. Grassy too? Light grainy malt.

T: Yup, grassy mainly up front. Spicy pine in the middle. Maybe some bitter grapefruit peel floating around too? Especially in the lightly bitter aftertaste. Very light malt, a bit of dry cracker in the finish. Crisp, dry and bitter finish/aftertaste.

M: Light bodied and dry. Decent punch of bitterness to go with the dryness in the finish.

O: Honestly not a bad APA. The appearance and aroma is pretty meh but the taste is nice. Surprisingly decent hop character with quite a bit of bitterness. Crisp and refreshing, sessionable for sure. Pretty much the very definition of an APA in my opinion.
