Re-reviewing this one. One of the first beers I reviewed when I joined BA--I wanted to revisit it after having close to a full year of beer exploration under my belt.
A: Light amber color with a creamy head that retained well and left decent lacing all the way down the glass. Solid appearance for an APA.
S: Caramel aromas, some spices, and a earthy/spiced hop aroma. It's got an aroma that is quite similar to some of the Harpoon beers.
T&M: It's a fairly dry beer that starts with dry, malty flavors that give way to some lightly citric hop flavors. The finish is dry with a lingering hint of malty flavor. Medium body, nice flavor, good finish.
D: Drinkability is solid. More flavor would aid it somewhat, but it's still a decent brew. It's well-balanced and enjoyable. Definitely a good party/social beer--something I could drink a lot of at a bar.

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint.
A: Minimal head with a crystal clear body, amber in color
S: Some grape scent, not too much going on other than a mild sweetness
T: Very refreshing beer, the hop profile reminds me of SABL, but that shouldn't be too surprising. The malt profile is not obvious until the finish which is caramely and bready, which also included a carbonation bite (minor).
M: Very very easy to drink, like a lager almost, low carbonation.
O: A easy drinker that i'm sure i could have all night, but definitely nothing to call home about. A solid offering for those who want to tiptoe into the realm of ales.
