look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

S: Slight cascade hops, slightly grassy, caramel malt, little citrus notes

L: Dark amber, crystal clear, white head that dissipates

T: Caramel malt up front with some light grapefruit. Medium, leafy hops with a touch of herbalness. Very smooth sweetness with a touch of leafy hop flavor. Finishes fairly dry with residual hop flavor.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation

Pretty mediocre, hops are pretty subdued, not too exciting.

This does not look or taste like an APA. There is an overabundance of caramel malts in this. Not balanced very much.

Brewery description: Slightly roasted with hints of citrus, this nuanced ale offers mellow, distinct flavors working in perfect harmony. But don’t let the delicate proportions fool you, this sophisticated brew is no lightweight.
