Pint sized bottle served chilled into an imperial pint glass.

First Cast is a hazy pale amber color with an inch of white head. It settles slowly and leaves some lace.

Aroma is faintly hoppy but but not enough so for an IPA. Mostly malts with a hint of sweet citrus.

Flavor is again more malt forward than most IPAs with hops playing a secondary role.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Well balanced, more along the lines of an APA.

Overall a good ale but not an India pale ale.

Appearance - love the shape of the bottle for sure. pours an opaques orangish yellow with a inch thick head

Smell - straw up front and it did not seem too bitter at first. as this warmed up I got much more hops in the smell

Taste - a ton of bittering hops for sure. bitter at first, broken up by the malts, and then a bitter finish.

Mouthfell - weirdly it was kind of dry to the finish

Overall - Love most beers by Elevation, but this one wasn't my favorite. Would be willing to drink again though.
