Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is loaded with citrus: lemon and grapefruit mostly, and a little pine.
The taste is balanced. Great malt profile with the bitterness taking over halfway through. Lots of citrus here too.
The texture is crisp.
Nice.

Notes on 08/01/2014

A: Dull and brassy looking pale amber body with slight hop haze. Thick creamy whipped topping of stubborn khaki suds. Multiple runners of broken tracked lace swath the sides of the glass.

S: Smells floral and sappy with pine hops and orange zest. A light herbal suggestion as well with a mild bready pale malt undercurrent. A real juicy hopped nose that has me excited about diving into this one.

T: Resinous pines with orange-tangerine juice, florals, and some understated herbal concentrate. Upper levels of hop bitterness that pepper at the palate with alcohol kept incognito. Bready pale malt to balance with just a pinch of caramel sweetness throughout. Maintains a really solid balance making this a very nice American Pale. Plenty of juicy hop goodness in balance to those bready pale malts.

M: Moderate to lighter filling with a nice frothy texture. Spritzy amount of carb running through. Nice higher level of hop bitterness leading into a lingering dry finish.

D: This is a great APA and my favorite offering from St. Archer thus far. Classic mix of American C hops and such solid balance while tipping the scales towards being hop forward. Crushable now comes in cans.
