3.96/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

LOOK: Hazy Orange to Carmel Brown in Color, Moderate Foamy Tan Head that Dissipates Quickly but Plenty of Lacing Remains to Coat the Glass

SMELL: Very Mild Citrus Aroma, Overall Not much Scent but Pleasant

TASTE: Refreshing and Crisp with a Mild Fruity Sweetness, Very Slight Bitterness after the Swallow

FEEL: Light Carbonation, Very Smooth

OVERALL: Enjoyed this APA very much and would Recommend it. The fact that I wasn't Overwhelmed by a harsh kick despite the Higher ABV (6.30%) was a BIG plus :)

good looking beer in the glass tight half inch off white head holds up well against the cloudy deep amber beer and lots of sticky lace to the finish. nice fruity, spicy aroma lots of malt in the taste which is complex and balanced. smooth medium mouthfeel just adds to that great taste. just wish they had it in a 12oz bottle instead of a 22oz or growler.

A very solid beer. Pours a hazy almost orange color with a nice head. The smell had some citrus hops to it, but also a fruity scent, maybe plum on the nose. The taste was pleasant, with fruity sweetness in the beginning with a clean semi-sweet finish. The mouthfeel was a bit more fizzy than I liked it overall, a very nice beer to just sit and drink.
