4.13/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Wow. This is a subtle, sessionable (as long as the digestion can take it) beer that is full of character (not a beer at all, of course, it's an ale, but it is a good substitute for a beer - read on).

It is a perfect cloudy and somewhat foamy yellowish concoction. Soupy and dicey looking, as it should be. The aroma is very full and hoppy.

The taste is less than you would expect from what you are holding in your hand, but it comes out nicely in a smooth, satisfying finish.

It's nice when a beer has this much character without having to hit you up side the head with it.

I also had it on draft yesterday (11/27/2013) and it had a similar character, but a tad smoother.

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.
