Clean, crisp with grapefruit, tropical fruit, pine. Great palate with bright citrus, pine and mild tropical fruit. Light in body with a clean bitter finish with lingering pine. Great stuff.

On tap at Societe Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA.

A- Clear straw-yellow, golden body with half finger white head. Lots of sticky lacing, not much retention time.

S- Grapefruit, oranges, pine. Bready crackers and biscuits in the background. For the most part, grapefruit dominates the aroma. Nice hop-forward aroma, especially given this being an APA.

F- Grapefruit and pine, not so much the oranges or tangerines. Pine is quite a bit more noticeable here, especially on the finish. But the grapefruit is still the dominant hop aroma. Moderately juicy and dry; the grapefruit isn't kept down all that much by the crackery malt backbone. No surprise.

M- Medium-thinner bodied, expected moderate carbonation levels. Crisp, dry and a bit more bitter than a typical APA. Very drinkable.

O- Very nice APA; it's not quite The Pupil, and it doesn't measure up to Hoppy Birthday, but it's a good APA that I would drink if presented the opportunity.

Final score: 4.13
