look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A deep golden color with a little of an amber hue to it with a white bubbly head. A fruity, floral, sweet aroma. Flavor wise this is quite malt forward and relatively sweet for an APA. First thing that hit me was the malts, the hops kicked in mid stream, grassy, floral, and a touch fruity, and they carried through into the finish. Mild and balanced bitterness. A medium plus body that is aided by the carbonation. A little heavier than the style dictates for my taste buds. Overall, a its a nice sessionable pale ale (surprisingly given the heavier mouthfeel). The more of it I drank, the more it grew on me.
