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

Had a 4oz pour from growler into tulip glass

A- Pours a nice light gold, foamy white head. Great lacing.

S-Aromas of passionfruit, citrus,pine.

T-Taste is light. Some melon mends with the pale malts nicely, a bit of pine comes in, but only very subtle.

M- Light-medium in body with fine carbonation.

O-Overall a decent APA hard to compete with Edward.

Serving type: growler

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

App- hazy straw yellow body, nice one finger white head, good retention, nice lacing

Smell- Floral, nice breadiness, biscuits. Very floral nose that is quite a bit sharper than any other floral pale ales I've had the chance to try.

Flavour- Favors the malts a bit- bready, honey, caramel- but complemented nicely by a floral flavour typical of the more floral hops. Possibly some lemon zest as well, but rather floral-dominant.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, great carbonation, not super creamy but fairly easy to drink. Not terribly bitter, with a nice floral aftertaste.

Overall- Very interesting floral pale ale, I like how this beer is quite balanced between the floral hoppiness and the bready malts. Still, not something I'd use one of my 3 growler fills for- I'd drink this on tap in Waterbury anytime though.

Serving type: on-tap
