Curiosity killed the cat, I saw this and had to grab a single. I get a pleasant surprise pouring this out, beaten copper body, big resilent sticky off-white head nearly perfect for style. In the aroma, I can actually smell hops, not violently aggressive hops, but they are definitely assertive in their stance lightly piney, and citrusy. The background of the aroma is a small swelling of sweet malt, and a faint, yet slightly unpleasant minerally/metallic tinge. As a swallow I think the first thing I notice is that this is a tad light, but still serviceable in mouthfeel. Honey sweet malt tickles the front of my palate, flat bitterness develops into subtle pine and citrus flavors followed by a resurgence of sweet malt and a spicy dry finish. This beer is quenching but the dryness makes you want to take another drink. A nicely balanced APA if not a little thin. Im still pleasantly surprised! Might I add, for just over $5 a sixer, this one ranks pretty high on the "bang for you buck list"

An amber color that leans a little darker with an orange hue to the body, this beer is fairly clear. It develops a creamy and pretty rocky head that rises pretty high and falls pretty quickly. It does keep up some of its form the rest of the way, and it leaves a good mix of patchy and spotty lace.
The aroma is a little faint, but there's a good balance, though it's a little maltier than it ought to be, while a light hops presence adds citrus with a touch of rind.
The hops really do need to come out stronger, and particularly so against the malty backbone. Caramel sweetness and toast are the main element, while some of the pithy citrus does come out as well. It does have some graininess running underneath.
Smoothness seems to be favored over crispness, but there is a bit keeping up. It almost runs out of life as it goes, but doesn't quite. Carbonation does remain steady.
