750ml growler purchased at the brewery on 8-8-13. Poured into a Sam Adams 'perfect pint' glass.
AP: Colour reminds me of orange or peach marmalade or fruit spreads. Looks rather chewy for an APA, like it has a good malty body to it. Head poured a fluffy white 1" that settled down to 1/4" with minimal lacing on the sides when the glass was tilted so good head retention.
AR: Bready (like toasted baguette) and biscuit malts with a hint of caramel malt. Grapefruit and pine hop aromas. There's more fruity aromas but it's like they're trying to hide from you instead of boldly making their presence known. Peach, nectarine, tangerine and guava are what I'm getting out of this after several more whiffs.
T: The malts flavours are like dinner rolls and chewy grainy bread loaf. Peach and apricot fruits mostly towards the front end with a slightly bitter lemony bite at the finish, reminding me of a Berliner Weiss. A little bit of pine and grapefruit on the lingering aftertaste.
M: Mildy carbonated, medium body, slightly dry finish.
OV: As with Susan, this is a very solid and high quality beer that I would drink regularly if I was able to do so. However, this beer also didn't 'blow my mind' and while I think it's very good, to me it's not quite World Class. I am glad I got to try this.

Had a 8oz pour from growler
A-Pour is hazed pale golden amber with a perfectly tight white head. Great lacing.
S-Aroma is huge hop, well balanced pale malt and grain bill with notes of grass and a strong citrus punch.
T-Taste is a touch more balanced, very drinkable. Grain bill is more pronounced with a light pale malt. Hops are herbal, grapefruit and citrusy, grassy notes linger with a very light bitterness.
M-The mouthfeel is almost perfect, and the dryness at the end is outstanding for an APA. Great carbonation.
O-Overall an awesome APA a must get!
