A super hoppy American Pale Ale with a ton of Citra, Columbus and Cascade hops. Deep amber in color with an extremely well rounded hop and malt character. The finish is slightly dry and refreshing to the last drop.

Overzealous pour gave me a huge, off-white head with great staying power. Deep gold body, slight haze. Big gobs of lace.

Pungent, citrus hops. A bit of dank earth and caramel malt underneath.

Hops are subdued in the mouth. Lemon, orange and grapefruit followed by pine. Some caramel malt under it all. A touch bitter for the style.

Medium-bodied, light carbonation, but it is a day old growler.

Overall, a tasty beer. Almost more of a low-alcohol IPA than an APA. Either way, it's hittin the spot. (501 characters)

This is a high quality example of American Pale Ale. Nice amber color. Rich creamy head that lasts in the glass. Beautiful spice/pine/citrus aromas from late hop additions. Nice malt sweetness with bread and biscuit flavors. Hop bitterness is moderatley high, but nicley balanced with the malt, and a lingering subtle grapefruit finish.

I have purchased this beer in growler form several times at the brewery. The quality is consistant, and has never disappointed anyone I have served it to. Very drinkable. (508 characters)
