look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a rich and pleasant golen-red color with a two-finger frothy head that won't let up.

Aroma a pleasing and heavy malty-fruit. Again, very pleasant.

Flavor doesn't quite do the apparance and aroma justice, but still quite good. Very bitter but hop flavor is not overwhelming. I'm picking up a nice eclectic hop tone that has a piney burnt tease. Malts are prevalent as well but only a hint of that fruity influence identified in the aroma. Interesting combinations here that work in concert.

Mouthfeel is smooth but surprisingly watered down -- I would expect a heavier foundation considering the strong hops and malt taste.

Drinkability is good, strong carbonation with an alcohol presence. Watered mouthfeel results in a beer that goes down quick.

This won't be among my top favorite APAs but I'll tell you -- the flavor is quite unique and unusual so I imagine I'll try this one again. However, I could see this one growing on me. I'm betting that tracking down the draft would be well worth it to amplify the hoppy kick.

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

A: It has a dense, musky, and burnt orange color to it.

S: Had an orange, lemon and biscuit scent.

T: Citrusy and hoppy with a caramel malt flavor.

M: A medium bodied beer with medium carbonation.

O: I really like how well rounded this beer is, especially the caramel malt flavors it brought out. It's more enjoyable on a cooler day.
