Appearance - Pours a hazy copper orange with a huge, rocky off-white 3 finger head. Exceptional retention, resulting in a fair layer of surface suds and chunks of lacing on the side of the glass.
Smell - Grassy and lemony citrus, with slight spice and some light bready notes.
Taste - Follows the nose. Grass and mild lemon hop notes at the forefront and throughout. Clean, grainy and slightly bready malt base that might be too weak to notice unless you look for it. Hints of hop spice. Finish is lightly sour with a lemon zest aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with fair carbonation. Smooth with a crisp, semi-dry finish.
Overall - Nice take on the classic APA. A bit too sweet and sour for it to be an all-day drinker, but serves as a nice one-off or change of pace brew. Might benefit with a stronger malt backbone. In any case, one I'll revisit in the future.
