Good head for a bar pour. Sticks around throughout the tasting. It also leaves a blanket of lace. Dark gold and nearly clear.

Mild, but appealing fresh, floral hop aroma. A bit caramel (crystal) malt as the secondary nose. Pleasant blend.

The malt comes out more strongly in the taste. There's a bit of sweetness with an I fermented malt touch. Comes across like an amber with a solid bitter hop kick in the swallow. Full bodied with an average carbonation level. The aftertaste is bittersweet but more bitter than sweet.

On tap at the brewery in Healdsburg. orange color, decent head. Smells hoppy, alcohol, malts. Flavor is very hoppy and bitter but not quite a west coast and the alcohol is very apparent. Overall I was expecting to like this a lot but Apex is so much better. In fact the fresh Racer 5 on tap blew this away.
