Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium snifter. Pours out a hazy apricot color with about a finger of off-white foam. Rather poor retention for a bottle-conditioned ale. The nose sports a nice grassy hop character with notes of lemon and grapefruit.

The beer has a light-medium body. Faint caramel-like malt notes up front are immediately overtaken by the taste of American hops. Lemon notes predominate and carry to a mild, dry finish. No diacetyl. Not much lingering flavor, but refreshing.

Overall, a nice refreshing pale ale, but not very memorable. I realize it's not an IPA, but a bit more depth and complexity would be nice. I feel it definitely needs a bit more malt presence.

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.
