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.

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
