look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

On tap at Karben4 in Madison, WI. 16oz served in a Karben4 goblet 9/14/2014.

A- Slightly hazy golden-orange body with a one finger white head, rings of lacing. [3.75]

S- Floral notes, some citrus, pine. A fairly hoppy nose that is balanced out by a good bit of caramel and bread. As I would expect from Karben4. [3.75]

F- Citrus, caramel, bread, floral hops, pine. Balanced overall, but the hops are still quite vibrant and very hard to miss. More than a solid APA in terms of the hop flavours and the balance. [4]

M- Medium in body though on the thinner side, very drinkable. Balanced with a slight citrus bitterness on the backend. [3.75]

O- Altogether a very solid local APA, I would drink a fair amount of this if this was bottled. Very hoppy, but not overly bitter nor is it too sweet. Very balanced as far as my drinking preferences go. [4]

Final score: 3.91

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours hazed golden with a thin head that leaves spotted lacing.

The smell has pine and a floral character.

The taste is of soft pine, a cracker/bread backing with a bitter dryness. Nicely balanced with a refreshingly dry-ish finish.

It is, again, refreshing. The body fits the character of the beer.

This is an easy-drinking, soft, APA.
