Poured this APA from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a hazy orange color, produced a average white head, nice retention and it left ample lacing on the glass. The aroma of the ale contained husky grain, citric hops. Light/Medium bodied, there was a foundation of malted grain, fresh baked bread, and a strong dose of citric hops. A little off balance in favor of the hops, but overall its a nice session beer and an average example of the style.

Packaged 11/05/12, qish I'd seen that, shame on Missouri Wholesalers, they let stuff pile up in wharehouses until stock is shifted...

Pours an effervescent amber with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Slightly hazed, goof head retention & nice lacing

S: Grassyness & lemon peel & a bit of floral hops, the nose was the best part of this beer

T: Light biscuitty malt, grassyness & whispers of lemon up front. Grassyness & wheatyness as this warms, slight peppery spiceyness too. Finishes grassy, a little grainy with lemon zest notes

MF: light/medium bodied & crisp carbonation, decent balance

Refreshing & easy to drink, but nothing special. I'd rather have Boulevard PA which is $2 a sixer cheaper than this & way more flavorful
