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
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

On tap at Uncle Barry's. 13 ounce pour for $4. I love you happy hour.
Poured gold with a small head. There was a generous amount of lacing that clung to the tulip glass for the entirety.
The aroma was subtle. Grapefruit and citrus were the dominant scents.
Highly bitter for an American Pale Ale. I like that. You can definitely taste the lemon/grapefruit/citrus from the hops. But there is something underlying in this beer. Perhaps its from the malts. Something not too bready but almost grainy. Citrus is the dominant flavor. Very sessionable.
Not too dry with a medium body and a bit of carbonation. Beautifully done APA.
