101st review on BA
bottle to pint
Thanks Jazz @ El cerrito for this.
App- Very clear copper/amber/red color with a small 1 finger head that dissolved into some excellent swirl marks.
Smell- Hi, My name is Hops, have we met? Big hops and mild citrus on the nose. Very nice smelling beer.
Taste- I am so very sad I do not live closer to IN to get more of this beer. For an APA so very good. I have had SN and Stone and this is just a class in itself.
Mouth- Nicely balanced withouth being overpowering for a nice APA
Drink- I want more. I have to get more. Every beer drinker should have this APA.

Pours a chunky off white head that diminishes slowly and reappears with a swirl to the glass. The color is a reddish amber. A very handsome beer.
Smell is a light piney hop, but then again my nose is stuffed up right now.
Taste is first rate crisp hopness, but not overbearing. This is a great session beer. Smooth and integrated. Nothing awkward about this one at all.
The mouthfeel is solid. Not thick, solid. A slight prickle from the carbonation and and a smooth swallow. Nice.
This is a very drinkable beer. I would have one after another easily. An easy choice when it is served in a bar.
The thing is, I remember this being even better on tap. The freshness was overwhelming to me at the time. I will have to re-review once I get this on tap again.
