Thanks davacano for sending this in the Refreshing Summer BIF.
Poured into a 16 oz Brooklyn tulip. A hazy golden orange with a thin layer of head. The aroma is dominated by the Saaz, which is almost a little skunky, but definitely earthy. It's not an aroma I'm accustomed to in an APA. There is a bit of buttery, toasty biscuit in the nose too. The beer tastes kinda weird. It has a good bit of sweet, grainy malt, with a little citrusy hop and some herbal Saaz. To me it really reminded me of sushi rice. It certainly didn't taste bad, just interesting.
Not a bad beer, not a great beer, but no clear brewing faults--just not the recipe that does it for me.
