A- Looks like a beer. Lightish amber color and a nice head that fades a little too soon.
S- Pretty complex for such a low gravity. Malty, grainy, slightly toasty, a little spicy, really nice hop character when it's not too cold. The hops are a refreshing change of pace, woody, juniper, almost evergreen quality. So nice to have an American beer that doesn't smell like grapefruit juice.
T- Follows smell, nice malt character, grainy and mildly sweet and a tiny bit of toasty malt. Nice fruitiness balanced with a hint of lager like sulfur. The hop flavor is more of that complex north woods vibe with the perfect amount of bitterness to offset the malt. Very slight fuzzy apricot character on the end.
M- Enough body to be interesting but light enough to have a few on a hot East Tennessee afternoon.
O- One of my new favorite session beers. Such a refreshing change of pace from all of these cookie cutter APAs.
