This brew pours a medium orange/yellow color. A small amount of head fades quickly and I can smell musky hops from the bottle. The smell is, upon sniffing up close, sweet caramel malt with an herbal bitterness accentuated by a slightly fruity smell. A balanced nose for sure.
Glug glug glug
The flavor is a present but mellow hop profile which is a nice blend of the smell. Bitter herbal hops flow into a sweeter more citrus rind like taste towards the end of the profile. The malt really rounds out the flavor by creating a tasty, mild and sweet base. In the end this is a better APA than I remember it being and kind of makes me feel bad for always going for the AIPA, but o well, a well made and tasty brew. Mouth feel leaves me satisfied.
