12oz bottle into a pint glass. There is some random code on the bottle but it means nothing to me in terms of a bottling date.

Pours a hazy dark copper with a quick half finger white head that is then gone. Just a few random splotches of lacing and head.

The aroma is fairly weak but I can pick out some light tropical fruit along with a touch of pear and peach. Can't really detect any malt at all.

The flavor has more fruit than the aroma but is still on the weak side. I feel this beer might have some age on it. Nice juiciness that is really leaving me yearning more a bit more. Turns into some pine closer to the finish. Just a touch of bread in the background. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a light mouthfeel.

Overall, I feel this could be a respectable APA when it is fresh but it falls off quickly. I need to try to find a fresher sample.

A - Clear yellow body, off white head, good lacing.

S - Chamomile tea, herbal hops, some passionfruit as well. Super interesting nose for an APA.

T - Light hop forward flavor with assorted fruity hops, light grassy pine.

M - Dissipating and refreshing.

O - The Michigan Cascade hop strain they used it super interesting. I'm a big fan!

While this is an interesting, high quality pale, is a major disappointment over priced.

It looks nice in the glass. Nice and orange. The aroma is weak but good. The taste iß a nice balance and it is amazingly creamy.

It is missing the characteristics of the style, the crispness, the bite. Generally, it is a terrible value.
