look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Amber and clear with a fluffy one finger head and a bit of lace on the rim of the glass. Nice head retention.

S - Peach, apricot, and some grapefruit hops. Smells similar to the Big Red IPA, but not as hoppy and a bit more focused on summery fruits instead of citrus.

T - Fruity and hopy with a nice balancing malt character. Sweet and fresh tasting.

M - Medium bodied and very dry with moderate carbonation and a long lasting aftertaste of fruit hops.

D - Probably the best session candidate along with the IPA, it just depends on how much hops you want. This is fruity, sweet, dry, and really tasty.

Pours amber with a modest off-white head and very good lacings.

Aroma is muted floral hops.

Taste is dark bitter hops with a strong malt backup. Flavors of apricot, grapefruit, and leather.

Mouthfeel is just right for the style.

Drinkability is very good. No abv listed anywhere. I would guess about a 5.6%.

A slightly hazy golden orange, with no head. Smells of grapefruit zest. Taste is an interesting citrus flavor followed by a slight malt middle and a bit of caramel and a ton of pine in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. An above average apa that I would definitely get again.
