look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

The bottle is a bit different than the one in the picture now. Poured a nice, chesnut brown color with a modest off-white head that faded about like the Messiah Bold did, to leave a bit of foam across the top of the beer. A bit of sweet maltiness to the aroma at first, followed by a decent hop presence.

There is almost a nutty taste to the malts at first, with a bit of a spice to the hops that follow it. The taste is a little sweet, and while it's a little crisp, it's also a little watery feeling.

Probably a decent session beer. Not a bad APA, I think but there are better examples out there. Still, definitely worth drinking.

3.5/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly hazy, watery brown with a frothy quarter inch cream head that lingers.

Muted citrus, resin, and toasted, nutty caramel malt form the aroma. There's a hint of chocolate.

Grapefruit pith and lemon underlie a strong, nutty malt backbone, becoming a touch resiny and bitter in the dry finish.

Body is moderate to a bit thin, with moderate carbonation and a fairly stringent finish.

Hops and malt are fairly well balanced. The astringent finish is somewhat offputting. I'm not a huge lemon fan, but the malt backbone is nice.
