A: Medium pumpkin orange color with a smaller head of white foam. Medium to medium low levels of carbonation and mild lacing in the glass.
S: Pale malts and dry hops. A mild husk and grass note. Not much going on, but not unappealing.
T: Pale buttery malt flavors with a touch of fruity hops. Mild caramel character faded quickly, with some grain notes popping in and out of the flavor spectrum.
M: Medium to medium light bodied. Slightly bubbly, but overall quite dull and uninspiring.
D: I've had better APA's but this one is do-able. I'd really like to see the carbonation kicked up a bit and a touch more diversity in the malt character. Fair

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
