Pours a clear amber capped with a nice Bear Republic head - the brewery is so consistent in their head that it deserves its own name.
Some floral hops hit the nose first, followed by slightly honeyish and metallic malts.
A bit metallic in the mouth - slight honey, slight grassy hops - I'm a bit let down. Really nothing to shout about.
A little flat in the mouth, despite the fine looking head.
Fortunately, despite my slight dissappointment in this beer, it's quite drinkable. Given the choice, I'd have an Alesmith XPA or Stone PA.

A: Pours a clear golden orange to copper in color with moderate to significant amounts of very active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy foamy light beige head that reduces to a couple of medium sized patch of thick film (made up of larger bubbles) and a mottled thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of biscuit malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness and moderate aromas of citrus/orange zest + citrus/grapefruit pith hops.
T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/orange zest and citrus/grapefruit pith hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness that fades pretty quickly.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Extremely easy to drink and definitely sessionable. Really nice flavors and aromas with a low ABV make this one I would definitely purchase again. The light amounts of bitterness combined with the moderate flavors/aromas of hops is very enjoyable.
