Thanks to JoeyBeerBelly for the opportunity.

A- 12oz brown bottle poured into an American Pint. Pours orange-copper with a smallish head. Poor head retention and very little lacing.

S- Very mild aroma of grassy hops.

T- Some biscuit flavor from the malt up front, but not sweetness. Hops in the finish, but a more grassy, spicy hop flavor reminiscent of an English brew. Good balance, maybe leaning a little bit toward hops.

M- Low carbonation and a light, crisp body. Could benefit from a little more active carbonation.

D- It would be easy to put a few of these away on a hot day. More of a daytime beer than a nightcap, but very drinkable. I don't know if I'd buy this beer, but if offered I wouldn't turn it down.

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian Snifter.

Pours a clear, deep amber; a shade darker than average for style.

Flavor: good balance, if a bit higher in the malt/hop ration than usual for style.

Feel: crisp, near medium body with a semi-dry finish.

O: well balanced, slightly mild version of an APA.

Didn't know this beer existed. Pours an exceptionally clear copper color, with an average white head. Mild hops in the aroma and a bready malt. Glad that there wasn't a buttery aroma like their other brews. The taste is of a slightly bitter hop, not floral or citrus, just a tad bitter. A healthy malt body to balance out any hop bitterness, perhaps a touch of caramel malt. A fairly light brew, good carbonation, leans on the bitter side. A decent APA, could use a bit more of a floral hop presence. The bitterness is there but not that nice grassy flavor.
