Pours a golden copper, slighly hazy, with maybe the most magnificent head I've come across... I poured this one about 10 minutes ago, and I still have more than an inch of foam! The aroma is beautiful, with an estery hop presence... notes of citrus, sour apples, and a spice I can't quite identify. Not so much targeted to the hop head, the flavor of this APA is more balanced, leaning to hops, but with a detectable maltiness as well. Finishes with a spciness, and a bitter bite. Has a very nice medium body. This is everything an APA should be... pleasing to all senses... hell, even the sound of the bottle opening was music to my ears!

A- Dark caramel color with lots of carbonation. 1.5 finger cream head with a good amount of lacing.

S- Grapefruit! With other sweet fruits and a light pine touch.

T- The grapefruit/hoppiness comes in at the start with very little bitterness and continues through with a doughy finish.

M- Starts off pretty light but grows exponentially, you get the sweetness of the grapefruit long after your last drink.

O- An incredible brew in my books and an extremely easy drink. I highly recommend it.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head and a few floaties in it. Nose is quite light and has a little bit of hoppiness to it. Taste has a light bit of bitterness up front, but has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a lot to this beer, but it’s fairly drinkable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. botttle poured into a tumbler

A- Very hazy copper, with big chunks of yeast suspended in the body. Two finger white yellow head, retains well, and lots of lacing.

S- Citrus, sweet fruit, with a little pine.

T- A bitter, grapefruit-hoppiness, and a slight bready finish. Well balanced.

M- Thicker than I expected, but good. Bitter taste, but it doesn't overwhelmingly stick to the tongue.

O- Solid Pale Ale. Drink it! If you're not afraid of some yeasty floaters.
