4.05/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at the Hengshan Rd. location.

A: Slightly hazy golden color. White head that lasted an ok amount of time.

S: Plenty of juicy hops here. Lots of citrus peel - lemon and grapefruit. Some pine in there. A hint of balancing malt.

T: Smooth and balanced. Not super bitter but also not bland. This is a good hop level for me, balanced with plenty of bread. Piney and even some floral hops. Nice.

F: Slightly drying and medium bodied.

Overall, a good surprise since I usually don't get APAs. They had rotated out the IPA for this one, and I thought I'd give it a go.
