Had on tap at the Village Tap for their Local Tap Takeover. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a typical copper with some lighter hues throughout with a white head that subsides into a nice film ring.
S: I get some wonderful citrus hops with some slight grassy undertones. Toffee-like malts as well.
T: The taste follows the nose to a tee. Nice citrus peel hops and the cracker malt gets bigger on the back and fades to light bitterness that ties it all together.
M: Light bodied with a crisp mouthfeel that leads to a dry finish. Nice little citrus lemon peel left on the palate.
O: A very solid pale ale overall and I was pleasantly surprised. Easily drinkable and I would definitely get this guy again if I wanted a nice local session beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Part of a mixed sixer I received as a gift, one of my favorites of the bunch.
A: Poured a murky caramel color, somewhat translucent, almost 2 fingers of eggshell head, and patchy lacing throughout the duration of the beer.
S: Fantastic floral bouquet. It smelled quite savory with notes of grapefruit, a quintessential nose for an APA. Smelled a lot like Daisy Cutter.
T: Sour citrus and bitters on the front end that progressively dries out to earthy tones and slight sweetness of the malt on the back end. Very enjoyable, just the right amount of bitterness without being over the top.
M: Medium bodied, resin-y finish, almost a bit fizzy but not to the point of being a negative.
O: This was like a darker-colored version Daisy Cutter to me, although maybe only about 90% of the nose and taste. Definitely a beer I'll buy again, could become a regular in my rotation.
