A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Body is slightly hazy light-golden that appears more yellow or straw-colored when backlit. Small whitish head on top settles fast. Some lace.
S: Nice hoppy nose, full of citrus: grapefruit, lemons and orange peel. Touch of onion/garlic makes me wonder if they use Simcoe or Amarillos.
T: Tastes almost like a witbier - body is light and there's a crispness that goes along with the citrusy hops that makes it drink lighter than expected for an APA. Light crackery malt underneath, then a touch of spiciness (that at times reminds me of the twang of wheat) is finished with lemony, mouth-puckering bitterness. Really almost like a wheat ale in many ways.
M: As noted above, light in heft. Carbonation is active with some sharpness, but fairly fine-bubbled.
O: Good. A nice summery APA, if that makes sense.

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.
