4.26/5 rDev +4.4%
I give this beer a 4.5 for being a flavorful, true session APA with plenty of bite, bitter, and complexity. If I had to drink beer all day long, this would be for me.
A: Pours a very hazy light blonde with a trace of visible carbonation. It pours into a tulip with a finger of head and leaves lots of dotty lacing.
S: Plentiful aromas of grapefruit, herbal hops and pine resin, stronger as the beer warms. Pleasantly hoppy.
T: The taste follows the smell but the pine resin kicks in stronger and longer. More complexity and a good finish of bitterness. A nice sweet malt underlayer, but hops win the show.
M: It is light-bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Extremely flavorful. This is the hop heads session beer, beats Bitter American which is a close 2nd, but entirely different character.

1/2 growler filled at Whole Foods in Yonkers NY
Pours heavily clouded dull and yellow straw in color. Delicate off white head, leaves nice looking high, delicate scattered fields of lacing.
Fruity nose, with melon, grapefruit and some honey.
Brightly fruity and flavorful ale, more grapefruit, nice tropical fruit characteristics.
First brew I've tried from Carton and I'm impressed. Hope to see cans available in my area.
