A: Cloudy light copper in color. Forms a moderate sized fluffy white head. Excellent retention and lots of lacing.
S: Aroma has a light sweetness. Lighter citrus notes, some pine, and a bit of earthiness.. Despite this being a single hop beer, the aroma is not tell-tale Simcoe.
T: Taste is lighter than expected, though this is supposed to be an APA. Lighter caramel malts. A touch of sweetness. Orange rind, grapefruit, and a bit of pine. Finish is earthy and watery.
M: On the lighter side of medium. Restrained bitterness. Appropriate carbonation. Feels a bit thin, though.
O: This beer is listed as an APA. The bottle calls it an APA. But, the ABV is in the area of an IPA. And while I understand this beer is supposed to be an APA, it just comes off as feeling more like an underpowered IPA than a strong APA. It's not bad. Actually, I quite like it. But at this price point, it's not something I'd be willing to bother with again.
