On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thin layer of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is caramel, pine and some light citrus and apricots. Slightly bready. The flavor is apricots with some piney hops. Caramel malts and breadiness follow. Maybe even hints of peach. Bitter at the end. Light mouthfeel. Pretty flavorful pale ale thats very drinkable. Overall, worth grabbing again.
Serving type: on-tap

As a fan of a number of Bear Republic's other offerings, I was looking forward to trying this one. I'm not typically a fan of Apas but always down to try something different. This ale pours a hazy golden amber color with a nice white head and substantial lacing. The aroma is Light and malty with a slight hop presence. Nothing remarkable but definitely reminiscent of the style. The mouthfeel is light and easy to drink; definitely one that you could knock back a number of on a hot summer's day. The flavor is well balanced with a nice malt presence that is not overly sweet or cloying and a floral hop presence that is not overly bitter or biting. Overall it is easy to drink, enjoyable, and well balanced. Nothing that will make you stand up and say wow but a nice example of the style.
