look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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.

Poured into HF stemware
A-Frothy white head with some mild retention. Thick lacing that quickly runs down the side of glass. light golden hazy beer.
S-Aroma hits as soon as the growler was opened. Aroma is strong and is a precursor of things to come. Lots of sweet smelling hops. Tropical fruits. Peach, oranges, mango. some grapefruit and faint pine
T-not as sweet as the nose at least at first but may change as it warms. Peach, orange, grapefruit, lemon/lime, some bitterness. flavors really pop as there is something about the beer that makes the flavors very bright and upfront. some maltiness to keep the hops in check. Bit of a bitter finish with some lingering pine and bitterness
M-medium bodied beer with ample carbonation. leaves you with a mouthful of flavor
O-strong showing here easy to see why this breweries beers are in such high demand
