Poured this APA from a bottle into a pint glass. This ale poured a clear , light orange color, it produced a decent white head, average retention and average amount of lacing. The aroma of this apa contains caramel, citrus, and toasted grain. The taste of this beer has a baseline of fresh baked bread, sweet malted grain, spicy rye, citrus, grassy hops. Medium in body, very drinkable, good session beer, excellent example of a craft brewed APA.

Beer doesn't pour with a whole lot of head but other than that it looks great. It's very crisp and clean looking and extremely bright. Light straw in color, not even getting close to the darkness of say a Sierra Pale.
There is an amazing crispness on this beer and I think it has to be the rye. It comes through first on the nose. It's cutting bitter smell that is pretty new to me. It smells refreshing though. The taste is more of the same. It's this fruity malt, slightly hoppy taste bomb that is so refreshing and completely quenching.
Mouthfeel is great, it might be a bit too sweet on the finish for my taste, but that's just me.
Excellent beer and totally drinkable. I would like to have this on draft somewhere soon.

A - Very light golden color, almost wheat colored. A small white head.
S - Pine and slight citrus hops. A little Resin.
T - First thing I get is a nice pale malt flavor, very mild. Next is the pine hops followed shortly by the citrus. Very fresh tasting.
M - Light Medium to Medium. The right amount of CO2 for a pale ale.
O - What a great beer for the alcohol content! I love it. Plenty of flavor but you could drink it all day. Well done.
