Very nice smooth beer, not too hoppy, a little too high in the carbonation, I like lower carbonation.

Grassy hop nose with some meadow elements over light malts.
Orange amber with a slight protein haze under a 1/2" bone white lightly bubbled foam cap that produces fine lace.
Palate: Crisp and dry with a touch of tanginess with light melon, hop spice and long lingering fruit flavors.
Medium body and slightly above medium carbonation.
Sessionable.

Freeride APA pours a copper color with a nice lacing head. There is a rich fresh hoppy aroma. There is a more balanced flavor, with some good floral notes coming through. Good body and decent strength of flavors. Overall it's a nicely flavored, and easy drinking APA.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5.3 % abv.

Appearance: The body has a nice orange amber color with great clarity. It has a small slightly off white head that slowly settles. As it settles it makes some nice lacing on the glass.

Smell: The aroma has citrusy grapefruit like hops over light bready sweetness. As I drink I notice some very light peach and orange peel notes as well.

Taste / Palate: It has the good drinkable medium body with a nice balance of hops and malt. The edge favors hops and it has nice citrusy notes running through out. The base is a sweet bready and lightly caramelized maltiness.
