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

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a medium-dark amber color with three fingers of fluffy head. There is great head retention and lots of lacing on the glass. The smell has a nice toasty malt smell, with a solid dose of piney hops. A nice well balanced aroma. The taste has a sweet malty start. Bits of caramel and biscuit malts. The finish is crisp and very hoppy. A really nice hop flavor lingering. The mouthfeel is nice and thick, yet smooth. The drinkability is really outstanding as well. A damn good APA. A big shout out to Kevin (kmpitz2) for this fine offering.

I see a half inch of white foam on the top of this beer and a nice golden hue. Brussels lacing. I get a nose of amber malt, barley, and pine like aroma hops. The body is fairly carbonated and somewhat salty and dry. I get an instant bit of gentle pine like hop bitterness very closely followed by a light and clean malt backbone.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a somewhat hazy, golden orange with 1 fingers width of white head. Head dissipates down fairly quickly to a thin film which remains throughout the drink and leaves a good amount of lacing.

S: Citrus rind, pine, dish soap, sweet malts, lemon/lime.

T: Sweet malts upfront with piney bitterness on the finish. Citrus rind.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the higher side, somewhat drying, good drinkability.

O: Solid American Pale from top to bottom. Not outstanding but well above average.
