Appearance: Medium amber/ruby, pours a light head ith big bubbles that recedes quickly.

Aroma: Fresh caramel with a hint of citrus, very pleasant.

Taste: Fairly light, not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Hops are predominant, but not very strong.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, medium bodied.

Overall: A light and drinkable beer. Nothing spectacular, but a solid brew.

Served - bottle into Pint Glass

Appearance
Dark, amber, brown with very minimal head to start that quickly fizzles out.

Smell
Fruity and hoppy with some grapefruit hints and some malts.

Taste
Pretty hoppy initial taste. Can taste the grapefruit and roasty malts.

Mouthfeel
Smooth and light as it hits your mouth and continues on.

Overall
A nice pale ale, with some great fruity scents and tastes. Pretty smooth as you taste and it continues on throughout.

3.35/5  rDev -8%

Appearance - Pours an dark orange/amber color with an inch thick head that lingers for a few minutes.

Smell - Caramel, floral, and earthy.

Taste - Very sweet and floral. Light hints of caramel with earthy malts and a strong bitterness throughout.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - This is much more bitter than most APA's I've tried. It's one step under an IPA
