Pours a brilliant light copper with a frothy cream head that slowly dissipates, leaving sticky lacing.

Resin, pine, floral hops, soap, and a touch of citrus form the aroma.

Flavor reveals a resiny, slightly catty base, which becomes brutally bitter at the finish. There's a hint of grapefruit pith in the beginning, but it's getting. The balance is decidedly bitter and resiny.

Body and carbonation are moderate, and the finish is fairly stringent.

Not my style. I prefer flavoring to bittering hops, and this beer delivers the opposite. Malt is lacking.

I've just discovered this brewery ans can't get enough. This offering pours a handsome amber hue with a small but thick white head and nice lacing. The aroma is subtle but absolutely delicious. Lots of malt and hop notes but totally balanced even in the nose. The mouth is just the right amount of sticky chew and smooth sippable, refreshing ale. The flavor is an awesome balance of rich malt and bitter hops. This is a great beer. If this one catches on it could give zombie dust a run for its money as one if the best apas out there.
