355 ml bottle poured into a Red Racer pint glass. A cloudy dark honey amber hue with a finger of creamy off-white foam. Aroma is dry biscuit, a touch of caramel, and low key but fresh citrus rind (grapefruit, mostly?) and pine. A whiff of peach. Taste largely reflects the nose. Biscuit-like backbone, rather dry, with some robust lemon and yellow grapefruit notes, decent dose of pine resin, particularly in the dry finish. Admittedly, the finish is rather off ... Almost a muddled compost pile note. Medium body and carbonation. Very much a typical APA with a little extra pine heft. Might be too unassuming for many in this craft beer era of bigger = better.

I gave this 3 stars instead of 2.5 because it is not as bad as I thought it would be. Almost no aroma but a slight citrus bitterness in flavor throughout. It's more like a light pale ale. Wouldn't turn down a free one, but would not request it.

Bottled 10.2013.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip (other glasses were dirty) on 01.27.14.

A: Cloudy amber. 1/2 finger head.

S: Caramel.

T: Biscuit dominates. Caramel back end.

M: Smooth.

O: This was easy to drink. It tasted more like an amber than an APA, though.
