Disclosure - I am not typically a hop beer guy

Solid beer overall, very tasty. A decent gateway beer for those looking to introduce some more hops into their beer tasting without overwhelming themselves.

A: Golden colored, poured into a pint glass, mild lacing, foamy head about 1 cm fades quickly.

S: citrus-y hops, get a kick of something else in the background to offset the happiness - mild on the hops smell overall, but it's there

T/M: Very smooth, the hops lets you know it's there but doesn't take your palate hostage, for a non-hops guy, very good pick, has a smooth aftertaste with not too much dryness to obliterate your palate, the hops is delivered in such a way that you want more of it, very well done beer.

I would pick this up again, in comparison, not nearly as accomplished as Hop Devil that I've had recently but a very good find.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a nonic a clear lighter dull golden with a fluffy,sticky one finger white crown atop,the bottle says to decant into a glass,I saw no need.Aromas of grassy/herbal hops over top of nutty malt,not real big but pleasant nose wise.Herbal notes along with a tinge of red onion on the palate,a little tea and mint is noticable,a firm lightly sweet nutty biscuit base holds up to the hops.This a nice APA not gigantic hops but a minty herbal approach that makes it really drinkable,the maltiness is big enough for non hopheads to like this beer as well.Nice job here.
