look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
If not previously noted, listed as an Imperial Sparkling Ale, which I am not sure of the proper category. Another less reputable site had it as a Belgian strong ale. It seems to be a cross-breed to me.
To rate it out of category, it was very enjoyable (4.25 overall), but for an APA, it's a bit light. I might almost think it might be a decent alternative to a saison (of which I am not the biggest fan).
The beer does have very good carbonation that plays on the tongue throughout. To me it has a light spiciness as well, but that could be me mistaking the sparkling part of the beer. There is a light citrus note, and a little dry tug at the end of the taste that are more in the pale ale realm.
This is an interesting try if your looking for something different, a little on the light side, but not without some depth.
