4.03/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a rich amber into a pint glass, almost the color of a sherry-cask scotch. Around a finger of quick-receding white head. Aroma isn't overpowering, a little floral mixed with citrus and pine.

Moderate carbonation and a light, creamy mouthfeel. Initial notes of soft, lemony hops that balance nicely with a strong biscuit and caramel malt backbone. Clean finish leaves only a traces of hop bitterness. Doesn't make as strong of an impression as some APA's, but very nicely done.
