The aroma is strong bright american hops, a hint of grassiness. The flavor and taste experience are more balanced than the aroma suggests, excellent medium-low mouthfeel, excellent hop flavors but not as aggressive as I would assume from the hoppy smell, very subtle malt bill but not shallow or one-dimensional, neutral yeast and clean fermentation. Excellent, one of my new favorite APAs, go get yourself some 1500!
