4.05/5 rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 64oz growler into a pint glass.
A: Pours a crystal clear dark orange with a healthy layer of light khaki colored foam on top. Retention was ok with a thin collar remaining after about only a minute or so. Carbonation was slightly lazy to medium.
S: Killer hop aromas here! Tangerine, tropical fruit, red grape, and tawny orchard fruit.
T: See above. Tangy apple, lightly toasted malt, citrus zest, and pineapple come to the party in a big way. Could've used a little more malty balance.
M: Spot on for the style. Thin at first, but becoming stickier as it comes up to temp. Lovely hop prickle blasts the tongue.
O: An excellent lower ABV APA. This need to be on at their taproom at all times. Seriously.
Serving type: growler

3.75/5 rDev -5.5%

Slightly hazy gold apperance with generous white head that leaves heavy lacing. The nose is citrusy up front with notes of lemons, mangoes, and orange. Taste is super bitter up front with grapefruit, lemon rind, and dry finish. The malts are very mild as the hops dominate. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Overall, decent but the malts are hidden by bitter hops.

Pale golden orange, saturated color with ever present rising trails of carbonation. Arcs of lace in the glass, lasting surface foam. Good clarity, not really hazy.
Grapefruit citrus and a twist of tropical fruit also, though hard to pin down.
Flavors of tropical and citrus fruit, somewhat mild, but ample hop bitterness carries into the aftertaste. Bitter grapefruit and light mango, light pale malt, the hops are showcased well. Light carbonation, crisp and easy drinking, though plenty of tropical citrus hop flavor. An underrated local APA that deserves more attention.
