look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a nonic.

A- Half-inch head quickly dissipated into a thin cap. very little lacing clung to the glass. The color was a pretty, clear amber-golden hue with plenty of lively carbonation.

S- At the nose, I whiffed faint notes of yeasty bread, citrus, bits of piney hops.

T- Caramel, toasted toffee, sweet malt, cut by a noticeable hoppy presence. Maybe some orange peel. Well-balanced and not overly bitter, but enough to cut the malty sweetness.

M- Bubbly, medium body, nothing fancy. Finishes clean.

O- A solid, well-balanced, drinkable APA. A tad hoppy for my personal taste, but keeping with the style. Not spectacular, but quite good.
