Oh holy hell the balance of this thing. Everything is in so much balance, yet its still bold for an APA. The body is deep amber with a tight frothy bubbly white head. Very citric hops up front. Smooth sticky and powdery sweet malt backbone. Lemons come come to mind.

I can see why this is so highly rated. The balance and boldness are second to none when it comes to APAs!
