poured 22oz bottle into chalice

A - A clear lighter orange color with a 1.5 finger white head. Thin ring with good amount of lacing coating the glass.

S - Light hops of grass and citrus. Notes of grapefruit, orange, and hints of lemon. Not much for the malts.

T - Lacks much of a malt presence, some caramel sweetness. Flavors of weak citrus include grapefruit, orange, and a bit of lemon. Rather grassy and floral, would be better on a hot day. A bit of bitterness on the finish to keep you interested.

M - Light bodied, crisp and refreshing. A little dryness.

O - Fits the profile of an APA nicely and is enjoyable. Flavors were light, but tasty. A nice one to try, but I will stick with some of their other offerings.
