Man, what a good beer. A nicely hopped APA (not an IPA) that pours out to a reddish-copper color with a slight head. Initial taste of citrus and caramel with a big dose of hops on the finish. This reminds me of Sierra Nevada's Pale with a heavier dose of hops. This is an excellent beer and does the American Pale Ale style proud.
