3.3/5 rDev -6.3%
Growler into snifter
A: Beautiful deep copper color with a slightly disappointing head. 4/5
S: Pretty malty on the nose. Don't get much hops here. 3/5
T: Meh. Again, pretty malty which isn't what I look for in APAs. You get a little bit of hops peaking through, but still a pretty malt driven pale ale. 2.75/5
M: Feels good in the mouth. Not really heavy at all. Not too thin, either. Sits well. Not much carbonation to not. 3.5/5
O: An okay beer. Too malty for an APA in my opinion, but it's not bad. Probably would't drink very often if again, but really not bad. Just not what I look for in an APA. 3.25/5

3.51/5 rDev -0.3%
A: The beer is very hazy orange amber in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that rapidly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel and pale malts are present in the nose along with notes of pine resin hops.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell, except that there is a better balance between the malts and the hops. The hops stand out a bit more in the finish and contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a really nice balance in the taste between the malts and hops.

I poured this just okay beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a nice head actually. The beer was a light amber kinda cloudy looking brew. The smell was like beer, or maybe fresh beer with a not too hoppy smell. The taste was just so so with a slight hop finish. Just nothing here great or really bad, but I will not buy again.
