Appearance - Pours a beautiful deep amber. Decent clarity. A finger and a half of head. Awesome lacing.

Smell - Good hop aroma balanced by a sweet maltiness.

Taste - Good bitterness and citrus hop notes up front. Quickly gives way to the maltiness that was in the nose.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Excellent APA. One of my favorites. Well balanced beer.

Hazy bright orange. The head lingers only briefly, falling to a minimal collar of lace. Soft maltiness with notes of grapefruit and mild pine. The flavor is evenly balanced with Pale malt and Cascade hops playing equally important roles. An easy drinking APA. (5% ABV)
