4.18/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This ale pours a rather pale yellow that initially worried me that it would taste like a fizzy year adjunct laden nightmare, but the white head stays for a long time and crowns with strong lacing. The aromas that are apparent are a nice sharp citrus hoppiness with clear grain malt. It has a nice malt heavy taste with a very present and balanced hop finish. Extremely refreshing and finishes very clean. Very drinkable.

Serving type: bottle

3.79/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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

3.63/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Date: 3/20/1
Location: The Craftsman
Draught/Bottle: Draught
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
