look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Generous extra, thanks Dave_treat, poured from the can into a 12 oz spiegelau
Looks the part with an amber-orange opaque body, cream-colored head with great retention and decent lacing.
Smells of tropical fruits, orange peel, pineapple, mango, grapefruit.
Taste is hoppy with a flavor profile closely following that of the taste, a crisp bitter bite that is refreshing but not overwhelming, malty enough to balance without being sweet.
Crisp and well carbonated, light-medium bodied, somewhat dry finish
Overall, a winner IMO, a solid APA that is drinkable in quantity and balanced but still quite flavorful. I'd buy a lot of it if it came to the area.

4.29/5 rDev +10.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Purchased a 6 pack from whole foods in the Georgetown area of d.c. Poured into pint glass
Appearance- great amber, slightly hazy, good lingering lacing on sides and a finger width head
Smell-American citrus hops stand out, what I come to expect from an apa
Taste- pine, citrus fruit, has that great dank hop taste with a bite that persists through the finish
Mouthfeel- great carb, adds body
Overall- I would drink this again, it's everything I expect from a modern apa, hops, hops and hops, with the malt bill to back it up. Easy to drink and very well put together.
