Had this beer apart of a sampler flight at the brewery.

A: Amber/Red in color. Pours a medium to heavy white/creamy head.
S: Sweet caramel with some earthiness to it.
T: Some caramel, slight citrus flavor. Malty but not overpowering.
M: Medium mouthfeel. Chrisp, average carbonation.

Good flavor but nothing separating it from your normal Red Ale, however, it was still an enjoyable beer.

On tap.
I admit I am a bit of a hop head. That said...
Pours a nice clear copper with almost no head.
Smells of floural hoppiness and some malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel is pretty smooth. Not overly carbonated. Sufficient thickness to prevent a watery feel, but not thick or syrupy.
Flavor is pretty hop forward with some citrus/floral hops. No pine.
Crisp dry finish is not overly bitter.
Makes you want another drink.
A very good example of an APA. One of the better I have had lately.
