Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a hand glass.

A: Slightly hazy golden hue. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly, leaving a cratered surface and dry residue behind. Pervasive lacing.

S: Soft hop notes, sourdough bread.

T: Crisp hops, strong bitterness, yeast, grapefruit pith, and a little fruit sweetness.

M: Very crisp, a little thick, pungent finish remains on the palate.

D: Sip and savor, especially due to bitter character.

Atmosphere is really nice. Thick, frothy head, and lots of persistent lacing. Nose is piney and doughy. Piney hops with characteristic citrus pith and a bit of a yeasty character balanced with a slight fruity sweet note. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Nice greeting card. Golden color with a thick three fingers head with great retention and leaving lots of laces.
Citrusy aroma with notes of oranges and pine.
Fruity and hoppy flavor but far from aggressive starts bold but finishes smooth. Different taste from most APAs. Notes of orange peel and white wine, tea leaves, a bit of pepper, pine and sweet caramel malt. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation with tiny bubbles.
This is a very elegant ale, well balanced, highly drinkable and original (likely due to its vinous touch). A recommended pleasant APA.
