look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass.

A: Amber/orange color with terrific foamy head. Retention and lacing were fantastic.

S: Prominent smell of generous citrus and floral hops.

T: Very good balance of bready malt and bitter hop taste...hints of grapefruit. Dry/bitter finish, very crisp.

M: Body is on the medium/lighter-side, and very refreshing and crisp. Carbonation is quite ample.

D: Terrific APA, I found this to be very refreshing and sessionable. This is definitely one I will remember and plan on making a go-to.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Great APA with a distinct hop punch

A- Dark amber-caramel(orange-brown) transparent with a 2-finger bubbly head that leaves some interesting lace

S- Pungent, floral hops and a sweet, earthy malt background

T- Taste is very good for an APA. Spicy, floral hops in front with a sweet malty feeling on the tongue. Some fruitiness. Leaves me with a dry bitterness in the mouth that makes me feel like eating salty snacks or a burger. Very American. Reminds me of a Sierra Nevada APA with more malt.

M- Feel is somewhat light but envigorating with a bit of bubbly carbonation.

D- Superb drinkablility due to light characteristics. Only 13 Plato's and 146 calories

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

very malty with a noticeable honey aftertaste. minimal hops but what is there works very well with the other flavors.

smell is a smooth balance of earthy hops and a two row malt backbone.

mouthfeel: bitter at first, that mellows out while going down then leaves a fairly standard hop dryness on the cheeks.

drinkability: sessionable as possible, and affordable.

pours a clear pale golden with a finger of even white head.

i was really in the mood for this one.
