3.3/5 rDev -16%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass at a sushi joint I was at for a meeting. It was far too cold -- so cold that some of the yeast was in suspension in the glass. I let it sit to warm up while I ate and sampled it for review after about an hour and a half in the glass, taking notes on my phone.
It poured out a a solid gold, quite hazy and with a very thin film. The nose was musty, with lots of hops on the front end. On the tail of the nose was a nice citrus and pine odor. The taste was solid; good balance between the hops and a spicy, citrus finish. The mouthfeel was a little too thin for my liking, but the beer was rather drinkable.

a: hazy golden yellow with some darker orange notes rising up the sides of the glass. 2 finger marshmallow white head.
s: cascade & columbus hops. pineapple, sweet lemons, light toffee, juicy mango, huge amounts of freshly baked dough
t: taste is much different than the aroma. the hops i'm tasting, which hit you first, are oniony & garlic. dank 'cat piss' like flavors. those fade to some bitter grapefruit, piney bark, and fresh citrus. ends bready & bitter
m: medium with just enough carbonation to pop those amarillo-like flavors
o: don't love it. the flavors taste a bit all over the place in here....something just isn't working with another one of the flavors. i think when you have the garlic-like hop flavors you need to balance it out with something sweet. however here your just hit with bitterness. not enough balance. i will say it is probably a good beer to pair with a salad or sharp cheese

Location: The Craftsman
Glassware: Cigar City Pint
Appearance: Very blonde with a small head. The beer laces very nicely.
Aromatics: A very nice fruit smell. Lots of piney hops.
Flavor: To be honest, I was a little taken back by how piney it was. Wasn't expecting it from an APA. The mouthfeel was smooth.
Finish: The hops stayed on for the finish.
Serving type: on-tap
