Way over carbonated. Poured a 12 oz bottle down the side and still only got half the bottle into a pint glass.

Once it settled down, the color was a perfect golden brown.

Nice citrus and hoppy scent.

The flavor was bitter without being balanced or pleasant. I couldn't rate the mouth feel any higher because of the high level carbonation.

One of my favorite ales. I love the clean taste of the Galaxy hops. However, I have had some inconsistency in batches/taps.

Wasn't sure what to expect as I chose this APA by chance on my 21st birthday at the local Casual Pint in Knoxville.

Initially tried to drink straight from the bottle but soon figured out that this wasn't going to work as I was getting basically a mouth full of foam.

Went to pour it into a glass and got about 4 or 5 times the amount of foam as liquid in the glass.

Once the foam had settled it was delicious. It had a beautiful color and seemed to almost have a bit of sediment left in from what I assume were the spices.??

It had a great fruity taste while staying away from the bitterness that I associate with IPAs.
Is this a common thing in the APAs??

All in all I was satisfied with my first try at a 6 pack of craft beer.
